At a mass rally in southern Egypt, Egyptian presidential hopeful and former Arab League chiefsaid that “the Camp David accords were dead and buried long time ago, I should be considered as a document which should be put on the shelves of history."
"The main purpose of the agreement with Israel was to establish an independent Palestinian state on the lands occupied by Israeli forces in 1967, but Israel failed to implement Palestinian state in the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem," Amr Moussa added.
"This accord is dead and buried," the leading Egyptian presidential candidate stressed.
In a visit to the west of Egypt two weeks ago, Moussa described the Camp David agreements as "ink on paper whose period of authority is over'.
It is worth mentioning that, Camp David agreements between the Israeli prime minister and the Egyptian president Anwar Sadat under the mediation of U.S. President signed on September 17, 1978,at the U.S. presidential retreat at Camp David, Md.
However, Moussa later clarified in a separate TV interview that Egypt will still honor its overall peace treaty with Israel.
On April, Moussa said in statements to Al-Hayat newspaper: "Egypt will be a democratic state and will not go backwards." And he added: Part of the Egyptian political system will be controlled by Islamist, or will based on an Islamic reference in the Constitution." Moussa spoke on this issue amid growing fears regarding the rise of Islamists in Egypt. "Islamic extremist groups are too weak to take power," he stated.
On the other hand, according to a poll conducted by the Egyptian Al-Ahram newspaper on Monday, Moussa would receive 41.1% of the popular vote in the presidential elections in May 23-24. Moussa was the first Egyptian presidential hopeful to submit his papers and become an official candidate for the post.
The poll was based on answers from Egyptian adults from 26 provinces.
According to Arab and foreign polls, Amr Moussa is most likely to win presidential election on May, as he will be supported by those who fear the Muslim Brotherhood and Salafis ruling Egypt.
