Telling Comment

On the subject of the Israeli vs Hamas altercation.

Egyptian Foreign Minister, Ahmed Aboul Gheit: 

The Israelis have been warning you that this was coming if you continue your cross border rocket attacks. Egypt has been imploring you to stop firing rockets into Israel, but you ignored our words. We have been urging you to renew the cease-fire with Israel, but you refused. You have brought this upon yourselves. You are responsible for what is happening to the people of Gaza.

Note that Ahmed Aboul Gheit is the Egyptian Foreign Minister - not American nor British.

Mind you - it could not have been said by our Foreign Secretary as Miliband does not do plain, simple statements. As an afterthought, perhaps he should go to the Middle East - they excel in 'hot air'!
