Mubarak blames Israel for Mideast peace crisis

Mubarak blames Israel for Mideast peace crisis

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has blamed Israel for the stalemate in peace negotiations with the Palestinians.
He has warned Israel that its security hinges on peace rather than occupation or force.
Addressing a joint session of the Egyptian parliament's two chambers on Sunday, Mubarak also called on the United States and other Mideast peace brokers to "assume their responsibility" to break the stalemate in the peace process.
Egypt in 1979 became the first Arab nation to sign a peace treaty with Israel, but relations between the two neighbors have been cool, chiefly over the lack of progress in reaching a regional peace settlement.
