prominent political activist says Egypt’s move to declare Israel as its first enemy may push Washington to cut aid to Cairo, but will open an opportunity to befriend Moscow.
The Egyptian parliament has voted for a motion which calls Israel the first enemy of Egypt. The text — approved by the parliament’s lower house — calls for the expulsion of Israel’s ambassador to Cairo and recalling of Egypt’s envoy to Tel Aviv.
Lawmakers also voted for a halt to natural gas exports to Israel and called on the government to revise all of its agreements with Tel Aviv.
Press TV has conducted an interview with Mark Glenn, co-founder of the Crescent & Cross Solidarity Movement, to further discuss the issue.
