Official: Israel envoy to return to Egypt after attack

Israel's new ambassador to Egypt is due to report to his post in Cairo on Monday, a government official said, three months after Israel pulled diplomatic staff out of the country in response to the storming of its embassy.
Career diplomat Yaakov Amitai will take the post, an Israeli government official said.
But the Israeli embassy offices in Cairo remain closed until a new and secure location can be found, said the official, who asked not to be identified because it is a sensitive diplomatic issue.

    Frank. I have made fun of you a few times over the past few months, but I agree with you. Saywhat, on the other hand, is likely to explode when he reads your post.

    Here's a thought. Why doesn't the Palestinian Authority actually try the strategy of "Get what we can this year, and see if we can get more later." It actually does work sometimes, and it will save lives on both sides, but especially Palestinian lives. If the best deal they can get now is independance with less land than they want, and with various restrictions, they should take it and negotiate for more later as an independant nation.
