CAIRO: Resolving the Palestinian issue will eliminate one of the most important reasons why people join “terrorist organizations,” President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi Sisi told the American Jewish Committee (AJC) Monday, according to a presidential statement.

Sisi met a delegation from AJC in Cairo to discuss Egyptian-US relations; the meeting was attended by Egyptian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sameh Shoukry and the delegation’s head Stanley Bergman.

He added that international guarantees should be provided to grow hope inside the Palestinians, through establishing an independent state and encouraging the Israeli leaders to achieve peace.

The President tackled how “terrorism” has spread, not only in the Middle East, but also African countries, using religion as means to reach their goals, according to the statement.

The international community should concert efforts to combat “terrorism,” Sisi told the delegation.

For its part, the U.S. delegation offered condolences over the victims of July 1 attacks in North Sinai, expressing their “full solidarity” towards Egypt in “countering terrorism,” said presidential spokesperson Alaa Youssef.

AJC emphasized the importance of promoting strategic Egyptian-U.S. relation and developing it politically, economically and militarily.

    El Sisi is correct, the Palestine issue helps grow terrorism, and the only way to stop it is to give the Palestinians a state……but not in Israel’s territory. Any where but Gaza or West bank

    Israel made a tragici mistake-giving up its territories, in Gaza and Sinai, and bringing Arafat back from Tunis to the Judea Samaria.

    It SUPPOSED to call ‘American KHAZAR Committee’ ,NOT ‘JEWISH’! We must UNDERSTAND that HAMAS is the RESULT of the OCCUPATION of the KHAZARS which are originated from EUROPE and RUSSIA and MOVED to PALESTINE! To CALL ‘TERRORIST ORGANIZATION’ those groups which are fighting ON THEIR ON LAND AGAINST of the KHAZARS which are the INTRUDERS, is ILLOGICAL and NONSENSE!!! One of the reason of the so called ‘TERRORISM ‘is the OCCUPATION of this region ,but just think well! IF a STRANGER WOULD THROW YOU OUT FROM YOUR HOME and claim it for him/herself ,WHAT WOULD YOU DO????? Would you try to get it back by any mean ,OR would you walk away????? WHY WE HAVE TO NAME A PERSON ‘terrorist’ WHO WANTS BACK HIS/HER HOME from the ROBBER????? Was it OK to CALL by the KILLER COWBOYS the IRAQI RESISTANCE GROUP ‘SAVAGE ARABS’ because they were NOT TOLERATED the INVASION and the KILLING OF 1.5 MILLION IRAQIS ???? We have to use the RIGHT TERMS not to mislead the readers!
