It is simply not true that `99 %' of Egyptians are against the peace treaty. Quite the reverse; beside the band of losers who call themselves `intellectuals', but are palpably lacking in the basic requisite quality -- curiosity -- there is overwhelming support. Every poll (e.g, by the Ahram Centre) conducted has shown it, by at least a three to one majority. A cursory visit to Cairo accompanied by small talk with a sample of taxi drivers will also demonstrate this to be the case. But the self decalred `elites' have nurtured the illusion of support from the `street' and actually are believing their own deceit. Such is the sad situation. Ask any Israeli who lived in Egypt how they were treated by the people. The vast majority will tell of nothing but a warm welcome in general -- especially in the years prior to the Intifada. The situation has somewhat worsened, and the welcome is not as warm, largely due to the fact that the feelings ogf the Egyptian people have not entered into Israeli's calculations as to how they conduct the conflict with the pals, but things will get better if the Israelis wisen up a bit. In any case a truly democratic regime in Egypt will not abolish the treaty. Public support for possible war is near abolute nil in Egypt.
