Recently, the question has been raised everywhere – Why are the states that once united and fought against Israel now silent on the Palestinian issue? Even bordering Egypt and Jordan are silent on Israel posing a serious threat to themselves. Where is the reason? And what is the interest of Egypt to protect Israel?

The answer to such an interesting question was found in a report of the Middle East Eye.

According to the report, the Israeli forces attacked the Palestinian residential areas one by one, starting from northern Gaza, and finally attacked the southern Gaza border town of Rafah, which is known as a safe zone. Two Egyptian soldiers were killed by Israeli forces during the occupation of this city on the border of Egypt.

Citizens erupted in anger across Egypt after this incident. However, the country’s army has not made any official statement about the dead and wounded soldiers except to investigate the incident. Even the army did not pay any military tribute at the burial of an army. President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi’s army chief directly denied the death of another soldier.

Egyptian officials say Cairo’s relationship with Tel Aviv is the most important in Israel’s history. Originally, the military, political and diplomatic understanding between the two countries was conducted under the Camp David Agreement signed in 1978.

The agreement signed during the time of President Anwar Sadat has been strengthened during the time of President Sisi. And ignoring public opinion, the Egyptian administration is enjoying all the benefits of this agreement.

The Sisi administration is trying to promote the idea among the public that their relationship with America is dependent on their relationship with Israel. The country receives $1.3 billion in military aid from the US every year.

In addition, the Cairo administration receives a large amount of assistance from US allies and other organizations. which is protecting the current dictatorship from economic collapse.

As a result of this agreement, Israel has been able to keep one of the largest countries in the Arab world completely out of the conflict. At the same time, the Israeli administration realized that the Egyptian government was completely dependent on the will of Tel Aviv. The recent occupation of the Philadelphia Corridor by Israeli forces and the killing of two Egyptian soldiers bear the burning evidence of the indifference of the Sisi administration.

The Sisi administration has been able to convince Western powers that a democratic government, unlike his regime, will participate in the conflict against Israel. That would make their domestic politics popular but pose a threat to Israel.

In such a situation, this extremely corrupt ruler is restraining himself from taking any position against Israel in order to maintain his power with the help of the West.
