Does Israel use the “Menendez Affair” and the option to cut the financial aid (which is quite modest) to Egypt to manipulate and pressure the Egyptian position into the more desirable for Israel direction in the Gaza war?
Was it the purpose of this affair to start with?
Did Russia and Cuba (Menendez’ sworn opponents) orchestrate this affair under the Israeli (and others) covers, and was it planned in advance, as part of the Russian plot to arrange the Gaza Pogrom with the substantial help and participation from the Wagner Group?
Putin deceived Israel with the false promises of “Intelligence Cooperation”, dangling the Menendez Affair as the bate, convenient for both; and then he stabbed Israel in the back on October 7, 2023.
This is my interpretation and understanding of these events which appear to be closely related: the Menendez case and the Gaza war.
Quote: “The [Menendez] affair tarnished the reputation of the Egyptian government precisely when it needs economic backing from the U.S. and as Congress is exerting pressure on the issue of aid.”
