Quotes-start.png "If Hamas were to emerge from this conflict with enough dignity to declare victory, Egypt would lose almost as much as Israel. This is why Egypt's foreign minister, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, initially blamed Hamas for the violence as well as Israel. The Saudis? There's nothing they fear more than another "victory" for the Iranian regime - and Hamas is increasingly seen as a proxy of Iran." Quotes-end.png
