Baraka warns Netanyahu of exploiting Egyptian Revolution to launch attacks

The Arab member of the Israeli Knesset, MK Mohamed Baraka, has warned the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, about his government’s attempts to exploit existing conditions in Egypt to launch a military attack on one of its regional enemies.

In a press statement released on Thursday (03.02.2011), Baraka drew attention to the fact that Egypt’s current lack of  stability may provide “the perfect opportunity” to launch a military strike against either the Gaza Strip or Lebanon or to “heat up” the question of Iran’s nuclear threat.


The Arab deputy said that, “Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has asked president Abbas to grasp the lessons of what is happening in Egypt. However, it is Netanyahu and his government who ought to learn the real lessons and understand the nature of the region; that the people will not remain silent about their misery and the denial of their interests.”

The head of the “the Democratic Front for Peace and Equality” criticised the continuous statements from the head of the Israeli parliament which “seek to shape the future of Egypt in accordance with Israeli experiences and interest.”
