Egypt’s oldest English spoken newspaper The Egyptian Gazette published a report today about the Egyptian POWs, it is short an interview with lawyer Farial Abu El-Nagaa whose brother enigneer El-Aidei was killed in the 1967 Egyptian POWs massacres. Mrs. Farial is among the 250 families suing the Israeli government in front of the Egyptain courts after the broadcast of the infamous “Rosh Shaked“.
Now what stopped me in this report today was its introduction :
AN Egyptian lawyer, whose brother was one of some 250 unarmed prisoners of war (POWs) said to be killed in Sinai peninsula by the Israeli army after the 1967 war, has said that while the Egyptians want peace with the Jewish state, the Israeli military involved in the slayings must be punished !!
Said to be killed !!??
Are You kidding me ?? All this and the national Newspaper that is following the newspaper believes that it was said and that they were only 250 !!
The 250 were those who were killed by Shaked but there were thousands who were killed by the rest of the Israeli forces !!??
From another hand the court decided to adjroun the case again this time to January 12,2008 !!The reason is that the court wanted to give enough time to the lawyers to get documents from the Egyptian Ministry of Defense or this is what it said. Hopefully the Egyptian ministry of Defense will cooperate with the lawyers of the POWs families
