Israeli minister of military affairs has extended the hand of friendship to Arab countries, calling on them to form an alliance against Iran.
Avigdor Lieberman wrote on his Facebook page on Saturday that the Middle East region now requires an anti-Iran coalition.
He also hailed former Egyptian President Anwar Sadat as “a courageous leader who stood against the tide,” urging Arab leaders to follow in his footsteps to visit Jerusalem al-Quds and sign a peace deal with Israel. “40 years after his (Sadat’s) historic visit to Israel, I call on leaders in the region to follow the path of President Sadat, come to Jerusalem (al-Quds) and open a new chapter, not just in terms of Israel’s relations with the Arab world, but for the whole region,” Lieberman wrote.
In November 1977, Sadat became the first Arab leader to visit the occupied territories, where he met with then Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin, and spoke before the parliament, known as the Knesset, sparking anger in the Muslim world.
In September 1978, the two officials signed the Camp David Accords following twelve days of secret negotiations. In March 1979, Egypt and Israel finally concluded a formal peace treaty in Washington. “The Middle East today needs, more than anything else, a coalition of moderate states against Iran. The coalition against Daesh [terror outfit] has finished its work, after Daesh, Iran,” Lieberman said.
The Tel Aviv regime has been accused of colluding with terrorist groups, such as Daesh, which is currently losing ground against the Syrian army.
