The US administration has double standards regarding the Palestinian crisis, says El Sayed El Badawy, head of the Wafd Party.

Speaking at a meeting today with 32 US academics from Drake University, El Badawy said he knows the American people respect human rights and now Egyptians are demanding that Palestinian rights are also respected. He said the Wafd Party respects the American people but disagrees with the US Administration because of “their double standards in the Arab-Israeli conflict.”

The academics visited the Wafd Party headquarters accompanied by 29 students.

Double Standards
I agree with Mr. El Sayed. What seems annoyingly amazing is the fact that the Arab world, including its leaders seem to consciously condone and encourage this apartheid behaviour of America and Western Europe. Why can't the Arabs rise against this shameful situation even though it is so blatant and sticks out like a pyramid.
