Point is that Israel is WARNING Egypt about straying aircraft who ignore orders to leave. Egypt, if they are serious about avoiding a shooting down, will have the obligation of specifically briefing and reminding pilots of this. With modern communications, the misunderstandings will be rare. Prior to "away", there will also be physical signals given at close quarters. Lt's hope the pilot of the straying aircraft is not deaf and also blind.

...Ok, what is the Egyptian government waiting for , for a plane full of tourists to be shot doen so that they can live on in the memories as martyrs died in in the Jihad against the evil zionists?

I think the Egyption government is evading her responsibillity for human lives here.

Well there was an article on Free Republic in 2000 that talked about Egypt getting out of the treaty that was signed between them and Israel.



Free Republic.com

Egypt could shatter its peace treaty with Israel and move troops into the demilitarized Sinai if the mini-war with the Palestinians widen, U.S. experts say.

The scenario is one of several that envision a widening of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict into that sweeping Arab neighbors of the Jewish state.

Robert Satloff, director of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, told a forum that a failure of the current summit at Sharm e-Sheik could lead to a suspension or severing of Arab diplomatic and commercial relations with Israel. This could be followed by an Arab League summit that rejects peace negotiations with Israel.

Satloff envisions the prospect of "heightened tension with Egypt, in which the Egyptians react to an Israeli strike inside Zone A [Palestinian-controlled territory] by sending troops to Sinai, perhaps even to a point that would exceed Camp David limits."

For some background on the Egypt-Israeli relations, here is a good article:



MERIA

For 25 years, Egyptian-Israeli relations have often been characterized by tension. Today, their frosty relationship not only reflects past chapters but also competitive outlooks on how Middle East nations and peoples might relate to one another.

Their peace has survived misperceptions, regional and international political changes, and unanticipated governmental upheavals. Neither seeks a major confrontation with the other. Each believes the other has not done enough to stimulate improved understanding or agreement between Israel and her Arab neighbors. Both are firmly committed to avoid any friction which would threaten continued U.S. aid.

For Egypt, Israel has moved too slowly to return all the territories captured in the 1967 war. For Israel, Egypt has been too slow to improve relations and has discouraged other Arab states from doing so. Themes from this relationship's history illuminate potential ArabIsraeli relations in nonwar environments.

They could just be sitting there waiting for something to happen to give them a reason to back out, and even attack Israel, but the four times they have, they lost. The only problem is that this story is out in the open already....

I thought Egypt was considered to have defeated Israel in 1973, when they recaptured their suez canal. Although Israel launched the counter attack two days later, they could only recapture the Golan Heights and march into Syria not Egypt.

Besides, the thing is, if egypt does break the peace treaty, chances are it wont be stupid enough to march into fire alone! They might be arranging something with other arab nations, for after all, Israel is right in the middle, and if the arab nations do unite, Israel might be wiped off over night!!!
