why are Egyptian tanks in the Sinai in violation of the peace treaty?!

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Tuesday that Israel must make sure that the 1979 peace treaty is upheld and not stay silent as Egypt‘s military forces enter Sinai.

Israeli state officials expressed concerns over the fact that Egypt failed to notify Israel about the deployment of tanks in Sinai – a move that clearly violates the peace treaty.

Earlier on Tuesday, state officials told Ynet that the problem can only be solved if the US intervenes and puts pressure on Cairo. “Netanyahu will need the Americans,” one state official said. “He’s got a beef with them. Things are getting more complicated by the minute.”

The US, on its part, was careful not to denounce Egypt’s move. “Without getting into our private diplomacy with one country or the other, I would make the general point that as the Egyptians work hard now to defeat terror and turn back other security threats in the Sinai, we’ve been supportive of those efforts,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Tuesday.  Read more

    Obama will definitely continue his stab-in-the-back policy against Israel. His sympathies are clearly with America’s and Israel’s enemies, with Islamic extremists.
    If the American Jewish community cares at all about Israel and about themselves in the US, they will vote for Romney.

    Philipzhao, I think that many of the views that Republicans hold are unacceptable to moderates, so people are left with two pathetic choices. I cannot tolerate the extremist views so prevalent in the Republican Party, and I absolutely feel the same way about the Liberal Democrats. We US voters are faced with extremes, and the country is polarized. I have no respect for Obama, so voting for him is a far worse alternative for me than voting for Romney, who I feel is a moderate. i doubt he would allow himself to be pressured by the more extreme members of the Republican Party. Obama leads from behind, and his ideas and those of his mentors are completely unacceptable to me. His foreign policy is worse than Carter’s.
