MK Kara: Give Gaza to Egypt


Member of Knesset Ayoub Kara (Likud) said Sunday that Gaza should be put under Egyptian control. Interviewed on Arutz Sheva's Hebrew journal, the deputy minister for development of the Galilee and the Negev said that the Arabs, in general, are always talking to Israel about returning to the situation before 1967, when Gaza belonged to Egypt and Judea and Samaria belonged to Jordan.

Kara said the proper thing is Israeli cooperation with Jordan and Egypt since there is no leadership in the Palestinian Authority. Even if Egypt doesn't like the idea, it's desirable for it to take over Gaza to defeat the terrorist aims of Iran, which threaten the government in Cairo.
