Israel worked to overthrow Egypt’s first democratically elected President, Mohamed Morsi. To orchestrate a coup in opposition to him in 2013, Israeli army Brigadier General, Aryeh Eldad, wrote in a local paper.
In an editorial in Maariv newspaper, the writer said that “the outbreak of the January revolution coincided with the Israeli security evaluation that President-select Mohamed Morsi, a Muslim Brotherhood guy, meant to cancel the peace settlement with Israel and ship more Egyptian army forces to the Sinai Peninsula.”
“At that degree, Israel became quick and inclined to activate its diplomatic gear, and perhaps even more method, to carry Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi to power in Egypt, and convince the then US management under President Barack Obama not to oppose this move.”
Eldad burdened that “opposite to all Israeli expectations, the Camp David settlement, which was made forty years ago, has lasted for many decades regardless of the shortage of actual peace among us and the Egyptians, and no matter the failure to solve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict because this warfare is not simply geopolitical. We are as a substitute having spiritual warfare with the Palestinians and Arabs.”
He said that “the stir because of Israel’s sale of German submarines to Egypt along with the commemoration of the fortieth anniversary of the Camp David agreement is a brand new indication that we adhere to having Egypt on our facet. And these days, 40 years after the Camp David agreement, we reached the realization that Israel is preventing shoulder to shoulder.”

Eldad talked about that “it is too early to speak approximately the usefulness of the peace settlement with Egypt, forty years after the signing of the Camp David settlement in 1979, and opposite to the expectancies that had been issued whilst it was made, the agreement becomes able to face up to and hold, however, warring parties of the withdrawal from Sinai were not incorrect then, due to the fact we did not have a real peace with Egypt.”
He added that “the Camp David agreement is the first of its type between Israel and an antagonistic Arab nation, which turned into then the biggest and most risky Arab u. S. It resulted in the withdrawal until the last millimeter consistent with the international border between Egypt and Israel, knowing that I did now not anticipate that Sadat might fulfill his commitment to the peace settlement with Israel, but I was wrong, too.”
