    BRUSSELS, (PIC)-- Members of the European parliament said they sensed a consensus among the Egyptians they met on the need to end the five-year siege on the impoverished Gaza Strip.

    They said so during a two-day visit to Cairo that ended Sunday after discussing several foreign policy issues that included the economic blockade on Gaza and the closure of the Rafah border crossing in Rafah region.

    The delegation met with Arab League secretary-general Amr Moussa and officials in the Egyptian foreign ministry and listened to what they had envisioned for the country's future.

    Ufree urged the Egyptian government to take steps to strengthen ties with the Palestinians in Gaza “who have for a long time suffered from the policies of the former regime.”

    Who said so?

    The Egyptian military has always strongly supported the embargo, and they are the only government that exist in Egypt right now. Just because a bunch of people are walking around vibrating that they want to life the embargo it does not mean that anything will happen. That will actually be up to whoever actually gets power when Egypt gets a real government.
