In an interview with the Lebanese daily Alkhbar, leftist and Egyptian presidential candidate Abul Ezz al-Hariri (AEH) shares his “mostly” reasonable views. I say mostly as he sounds like a radical Islamist when he starts talking about Israel and the Camp David Accords. Excerpt from his interview:
ARY: Are you for the acknowledgement of Israel and normalizing relations with them?AEH: No, I am not for making relationships with Israel or for there to be normalized relations between us as if they were any other country. In fact, we should cut off our relations with them.
AEH: Meaning the absence of commercial interaction dealings with them or diplomatic or cultural envoys. They don’t like us and we don’t like them, and our military must return to our eastern borders in the Sinai
ARY: What about the Camp David Accords?
AEH: It is an agreement to submission and surrender that violates [Egypt’s] national sovereignty. It should be adjusted for a transitional period until the Arab Spring is completed, its nationalist influences have reflected upon the national situation, and the international position towards human rights has progressed. We begin the countdown to the establishment of Palestine as a secular democratic state where Muslims, Christians and Jews can live together and the Palestinian refugees can return.
