Yet the question remains, do secular Arab leaders mean that all will be well in the Middle East?
What does Egypt's opposition leader Ayman Nour have to say?
After the Egyptian army stressed it was committed to observing all of Egypt's international treaties, opposition leader Ayman Nour said Sunday, "The role of the Camp David [peace with Israel] accord has ended."Many foolishly believe that the "Fatah" (Palestinian Authority) is made up of the "good guys" and Hamas is the "bad guys", but at the end of the day, they are both terror organizations who try to kill Jews.
In an interview with a Lebanese radio station, Nour, who served a lengthy jail sentence during deposed president Hosni Mubarak's era, said Egypt "is a great country and must respect its agreements. As for Camp David – this is a unique issue with unique aspects – the people will decide on this matter.
"For all intents and purposes, Camp David is over, because it is an old treaty and its terms must be improved in a way that will correspond with Egypt's interests," said Nour, who is considered one of the more liberal opposition figures and has no ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. (ynetnews)
Then again, Nobel Peace Prize Winner Yassir Arafat was also secular...so the bottom line is that Islamic Fundamentalism or secular Pan-Arab nationalism is irrelevant when the common denominator is the destruction of Israel.
Egypt must be watched very carefully. Only a fool would think otherwise.
