Israel celebrates 30 years of peace, Egypt doesn't

Thursday, March 26, 2009 |  Israel Today Staff

Israel on Thursday held several state ceremonies celebrating the 30th anniversary of "peace" with Egypt, the Jewish state's first peace treaty with an Arab nation.

Egypt, however, very conspicuously ignored the anniversary. Israeli embassy staff in Cairo said they had not even been invited to a casual cocktail party marking the event, let alone a public ceremony.

Instead, Egypt's leading government-controlled newspaper, Al-Ahram, ran an editorial harshly criticizing Israel, and suggesting that it did not deserve even the cold peace it now has with Egypt.

The paper accused Israel of having a thirst for Palestinian blood, and of scheming against Egypt.
