Egypt denies writing goodwill letter to Israel

In a strange turn of events, the spokesperson for newly-elected Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi is denying that the president wrote a letter to Israel’s President Shimon Peres, according to Haaretz.

The letter, purportedly a response to two prior messages from Peres (the first to congratulate Morsi on his election win, and the second for blessings during Ramadan), was typed in English, and published today on various news and social media sites:

President Peres even posted the note on his Facebook page, obviously optimistic about what seemed to be a gesture of goodwill, and what it could signify for future cooperation between the two countries.

However, the Egyptian spokesperson, Yasser Ali, commented, “”Everything that was reported in the Israeli media regarding the letter does not correspond to reality.” Harretz reports futher:

The denial by the Egyptian president’s spokesman is especially odd in light of the fact that diplomats in the Egyptian embassy in Tel Aviv were the ones who passed on the missive, which was printed on the official letterhead of the ambassador along with the embassy’s stamps.

Odd, indeed!

    They were probably threatened by Obama. His desire is to be the world dictator.

Rabbi's Commentary
The Rabbi Recommends: Rebbe, by Joseph Telushkin

Rarely do I recommend a book with the exuberance and enthusiasm I do today. The author of Rebbe, Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, was my roommate in Yeshiva Seminary when I studied for semicha, or ordination, there. He was then, and remains today, a dear friend whom I admire and deeply respect.
