Egypt Privately Backs Trump’s Al-Quds Move, Protests Publicly: Report

Bullying Fails: UN General Assembly Strongly Votes against US Al-Quds Decision

Alwaght- The Egyptian government is privately backing US recognition of al-Quds (Jerusalem) as Israeli regime's capital while opposing the move publicly to avoid the wrath of its citizens.

In four audio recordings obtained by the New York Times an Egyptian intelligence officer urged a number of prominent talk show hosts in the country to persuade their viewers to accept the US President Donald Trump's position that al-Quds is the capital of the Israeli entity.

Captain Ashraf al-Kholi reportedly told the hosts that conflict with the Israeli regime is not in Egypt's national interest. Palestinians, he suggested, should content themselves with the West Bank town that houses the Palestinian Authority, Ramallah. "How is al-Quds different from Ramallah, really?" he asked each time.

Still, Captain Kholi was quoted as saying: "We, like all our Arab brothers, are denouncing this matter."

Kholi was quoted as adding: "After that, this thing will become a reality. Palestinians can't resist, and we don't want to go to war. We have enough on our plate as you know."

While Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sissi said that his country regretted Trump's decision, which will "complicate the peace process," Egypt continues to maintain diplomatic ties with the Israeli regime.

For decades Arab states including Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the UAE have publicly criticized Israeli regime's treatment of the Palestinians while privately accepting and backing Israel's continued occupation Palestinian territories.
