JERUSALEM (Reuters) -- Israel's Foreign Ministry called in the Egyptian ambassador on Friday to stress the importance of the two countries' historic peace accord, an Israeli official said, after Egypt's prime minister said the treaty was not "sacred".

Egyptian Prime Minister Essam Sharaf told Turkish television on Thursday that the 1979 peace accord with Israel could be changed for the benefit of the region.

An Israeli official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Foreign Ministry Director General Rafi Barak told Egyptian envoy Yasser Reda that treaties must be honored to the letter.

An Israeli foreign ministry spokesman was not immediately available for comment.

The peace deal with Egypt was from Israels perspective to allow the abuse and humiliation and expropriation of Palestinians. This treaty signed without the support of Egyptian people needs to change.

6 ) Peace, US Support, And / The Sinai

All THREE WERE A PACKAGE DEAL. Egypt knows about US consequences ( cash & weapon systems), but it may be surprised by the Israeli consequences ( losing the Sinai ), regarding things given in exchange for the peace agreement !!!!
