Israel Airforce Bombs Sinai Terrorists.

David Kirkpatrick of the NYT really has it in for someone.

His new story is that Israel is using its planes etc. to attack militants in Sinai on Egyptian territory for over two years because of Egyptian ‘incapacity’ to deal with them.

His source seems to be seven unnamed US and UK military personnel. There is also a Bloomberg 2016 story citing an Israeli official. One US Senator on the Foreign Relations Committee also appears to confirm the story. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/03/worl ... egypt.html

If true local popular reactions would be ‘interesting’ and al Ahram might have to stop its poison regarding Israel and we all know that al Ahram is infallible and never changes its mind on anything – even when it gets its facts wrong.

If true it raises questions about the ‘world’s greatest army’ and the million man police force not to mention possibly several hundred thousand security personnel. Maybe it’s a good time to give up the factories, supermarkets, petrol stations and building the New Administrative Capital and concentrate on what the citizens pay them to do – protect the nation.

The Army absolutely deny the story.

The spokesman said: “"The Egyptian army's successes against terrorism in North Sinai are praised internationally," http://english.ahram.org.eg/NewsContent ... rstri.aspx

Really – I thought all the stats were that it was getting worse after five years of fighting them. I can’t find any international praise for the army – its invariably the other way. If there were specific praise he would have specified it.
