A Missing Peace Partner

Michael Slackman writes in the New York Times of Egyptian disillusionment and lack of support for the 30-year old peace treaty with Israel.

Well, in describing that it happened like this

Thirty years ago, President Anwar el-Sadat broke ranks with his Arab allies, visited Jerusalem and agreed to peace with Israel.

it's no wonder.

If you de-personify the Israelis while glorifying Sadat of Egypt, why should you have peace? Anyone heard of Menachem Begin?

Peace is between peoples and once you eliminate Israelis as people, real-live persons, why peace?
