[Egypt, still committed to mediating ceasefire] As Gaza death toll mounts, Cairo tries to mediate Hamas-Israel truce -Ahram Online


akio:

There were earlier reports that Egypt sort of gave up – but – this report says Hamas, Egypt, Europe and USA and Israel are continuing to try to reach ceasefire. 

Though not sure how actively. But this means ‘channels are open’. 

Actual mechanism of starting war – and ending war aren’t usually as childish? as street or internet mentality of seeing and thinking of wars. 

Though, I do have an impression that even after years of study in International Relations, many students never get this kind of perspective to focus on ‘actual mechanism’ – internalized. 

Often it seems many just leave/graduate schools thinking ‘politics’ – as simple and clear cut thing as people haven’t got time to get educated about it. Meaning there is probably a strong inclination within us to keep our mental representation of ‘wars’ – simple and clear cut. 

Having recalled its ambassador to Tel Aviv in reaction to ongoing Israeli aggression against the Gaza Strip, Cairo is now attempting to mediate a negotiated truce between Palestinian resistance group Hamas and Israel.

In televised statements on Thursday, Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi said he had been in contact with various parties in an effort to secure an end to Israeli aggression on the besieged coastal territory.

“There is one way to do this: impose a truce between Hamas and Israel,” said one Egyptian official. “We are working on this with the Americans.”

Throughout the past few weeks, Cairo has been attempting – without success – to mediate a truce between Israel and Gaza’s Hamas rulers. On Thursday, Cairo called on the US government to urge Israel to be more responsive to truce proposals.
