    thank you
    but 250 pages are too much

    Because they – Israel - got what they wanted. Israel offered Egypt to pull back from the Suez Canal in 1967. But Egypt would not agree to allowing back the UN force as a buffer or to limit their forces. Egypt wouldn’t agree to even talk. But in 1974 Egypt provided all these guarantees and more. For Israel the best line of defence in the Sinai was always between the Canal and the Mountains. It made a lot more sense militarily and enabled the Canal to stay open for world trade.

    Merciful?

    No, we never wanted the Sinai, we wanted a embassy in Cairo. You got your land back we got what we wanted for 30+ years, since 48, peace, recognition and full diplomatic relationship.

    Of course we fought for peace, not sure what you were taught. but it is sad to learn that after all these years, we have fought in vain.

    Why we should change our flag?

    About we leaving, you are going to kill each other before that.

    Now, stop trolling habibi.

    No the Israelis weren’t merciful they were forced to accept the ceasefire by the Americans and the Russians. The Egyptians were desperate to stop the fighting because they knew their front had collapsed and the Russians did not want them to go through the humiliation of another Six Day War. Also the Americans knew that if Egypt was humiliated again then the chance for peace after the war would be minimal.

    Basically Russia threatened that they would join the fight on Egypt’s side if there was not a ceasefire before the end of October. They were starting to ready the deployment of their paratroopers to Egypt and also nuclear weapons.

    If the war had continued for another week with Israel calling the Russian bluff the result would have been disastrous for Egypt. The Egyptian 3rd Army would have to surrender or die in place with over 20,000 more Egyptian POWs. The IDF would have cut off both Ismalia and Port Said in the north and Suez in the south. Suez would be completely cut off and likely to surrender or collapse without any supplies. Also the IDF would be overlooking Cairo and probably on the banks of the Nile somewhere.

    See that’s your problem there. The Middle East isn’t the Arab World. Never has been, never will be. It’s like saying Europe is the German World. Arabs are just one national group amongst many others.
