Egyptian President, Jordanian King to Meet Monday
Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak and Jordan's King Abdullah, facing popular criticism of their peace treaties with Israel, will review the situation in the West Bank in Cairo on Monday.
Angry popular protest has increased in many Arab states since Israel launched its attack about ten days ago, with calls for Egypt and Jordan to expel Israeli ambassadors.
According to Reuters, thousands of Lebanese and Palestinian demonstrators chanted slogans in Beirut on Sunday accusing Egypt and Jordan of treason for maintaining diplomatic relations with Israel.
Egypt announced last week it had decided to scale down contacts with Israel. Jordan has said it is considering asking the Israeli ambassador to leave. (Albawaba.com)
