I told the Humar: Let us wait and see

He Lied asking:
How can a blog called Uprooted Palestinians supposed to be a tribune for the Palestinian cause stand with those who cooperate and coordinate with Israel and promote those who recognize and compromise with Israel ? ….

While waiting:  Egypt’s Sisi in Russia for $2-Billion Arms Deal

Egyptian army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi arrived in Moscow on Wednesday with Egyptian Foreign Minister Nabil Fahmy for “2+2″ talks with their Russian counterparts on Thursday to negotiate a $2-billion arms deal.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrvov and Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu had made a landmark trip to Cairo in November aimed at reviving ties that had remained stagnant since Soviet times.
Diplomats in Moscow said Thursday’s talks would focus on regional security issues such as the Syria crisis as well as trade and economic relations. But Moscow officials have confirmed that a large part of the discussions will focus on striking a massive new Russian arms delivery deal.
The head of Russia’s state industrial holding company said after the Cairo meeting that Moscow was on the verge of reaching a landmark agreement to deliver air defense systems to Egypt’s army.
