US Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Cairo on Wednesday to meet President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, after Egypt called for a renewal of the Middle East “peace process.”

Even before Sisi had raised the issue, Kerry had planned a visit to discuss the crises in Libya and Syria and to raise concerns about Egypt’s harsh crackdown on dissent.

But the top US diplomat is also keen to hear more from the Egyptian leader about how he intends to help broker peace between his Israeli and Palestinian neighbors.

“He’s interested in hearing a bit more directly from the president about what role he has in mind,” a senior US official told reporters, speaking on condition of anonymity.

On Tuesday, in a televised speech, Sisi urged Israelis and Palestinians to seize what he said was a “real opportunity” and hailed his own country’s peace deal with Israel.

You seem focused on gays. Most of times, people in this case don’t dare to confess to themselve they have homosexual pulsions… Have fun waging war on US mainland : they don’t even need the army to defend themselves : there are more guns than inhabitants, shooting and hunting are the real national sport. Here, it’s just the case in the country, for a 70M ppl country, we “just” have around 15M guns, I estimate that smth around the 3rd to the half are .300winch-mag w. optics, same stuff as Chris Kyle… If SHTF, you’d have 5M snipers in militias… Read more »
