Egyptian political groups support Palestinian resistance – Ahram Online

Revolutionary Socialist and prominent labour activist Haitham Moamadeen accused the Egyptian proposal of only being concerned with “protecting Israel’s security.”

According to head of Egypt Freedom Party Amr Hamzawy, instead of holding talks with Israel – which he says “has never stopped from carrying out attacks on Palestinians” – the priority should be the immediate and unconditional opening of the Rafah crossing – of which Egypt has restricting opening for emergency cases only, further worsening an already-enforced Israeli besiege on the Palestinian enclave.

“The rulers of Egypt must open the crossing which has exposed Palestinians in Gaza to a slow death, other than the fast death they’re going through at the hands of Israel,” he added.
