While no discussions have taken place between new Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu since Morsi was sworn in as the new President of Egypt on Saturday, Netanyahu did send an envoy to Cairo for discussions with Egyptian military officials over the weekend.

According to Israeli media reports, Issac Molho – Netanyahu’s special envoy to the Palestinians – met with the head of Egypt’s Military Intelligence, Murad Mowafy, and a number of other Egyptian military officials.  It has not been confirmed whether or not Molho met with the newly inaugurated president, who is engaged in a political battle over authority with the military following his election into office.

During his first official address to the Egyptian people as President, Morsi declared that the Arab world’s most populated nation is committed to its “international treaties and agreements”, a reference to its historic 1979 peace treaty with the state of Israel.

“We carry a message of peace to the world,” Morsi said, “We emphasize the state of Egypt’s commitment to international treaties and agreements.”

    Was Morsi’s statement “‘I announce from here that Egypt, its people and presidential institution, stand with the Palestinian people until they regain all their rights'” typical doublespeak? — One thing in Arabic and another in English, etc.?
