Post-revolution Egypt is charting a new policy towards the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Cairo has succeeded in mediating a Palestinian reconciliation, is removing the blockade of Gaza, and is tougher on the Israeli occupation. What is your opinion?
Strongly approve of the Egyptian policy within the current parameters.
Approve, but want Egypt to go further to annul the peace treaty with Israel and cut all ties.
Approve, but want Egypt to act with more caution and try not to antagonize Israel.
Strongly disapprove. Antagonizing Israel is not in Egypt’s interests; it would damage Egypt-US relations, and would harm our already suffering economy.
Don’t know.
