Media Secretary General of the MB Bloc and presenter of Gaza probe Dr. Hamdy Hasan stirred a big crisis in the Parliament when he said he felt ashamed and disappointed for the government"s stance towards the Israeli aggression on Gaza upon which the NDP MPs interrupted to confront him.  But MP Hasan went on accusing the government of conniving with Israel and supplying it with Egyptian gas "despite its plan to expand its boundaries from the Nile to the Euphrates!"

Hasan further questioned how Egypt could export gas to Israel at a price cheaper than the world market price and how it could buy gas for $3 and sell it for $0.75 which means losing 55 million dollars daily or 18 billion dollars annually.  "At the same time it calls on the Parliament for additional support while a third of the Egyptian population is living under the poverty line.  What is the Egyptian citizen"s interest in exporting gas to Israel while he is not able to get gas for his oven?," Hasan added.

"The government was answering questions other than those addressed by the MPs.  We asked the Minister of Petroleum how he was exporting gas to those who are planning to occupy our country, as clear in Israel"s map in the Knesset which stretches from the Nile to the Euphrates Rivers, as they had planned to occupy Cairo and Damascus in 1955.  Moreover, the economic crisis is blowing down all the world economies, so how can we lose 18 billion dollars every year without having any thoughts about modifying this agreement? We were startled by the response of the Minister of Petroleum who began explaining to us the chemical difference between the oven and gas and how each of them operates," Hasan told Ikhwanweb.

"And when we asked Mufeed Shehab about the denial of university professors" access to Gaza to help in the process of its rebuilding, about the closing of the Rafah crossing in the face of international aid including the Qatari aid which waited for three days until it was withdrawn by Qatar, and about the patients injured by white phosphorous whom the Egyptian authorities refused their access to Egyptian hospitals for treatment so as to cover up on Israel"s crime of using internationally banned weapons despite the seriousness of their conditions and the death of some of them after being denied treatment, he gave us answers that were totally irrelevant," Hasan added.

Commenting on the absence of the Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Abul-Gheit from the session despite his presence in Egypt and his knowledge of a probe with him in this session, Hasan described it as "carelessness with the Parliament."  And when NDP MPs made excuses that he was busy attending important meetings, Hasan replied, "What is more important that answering the questions posed by the Egyptian people whom His Honor, the Minister, represents?"

Hasan concluded his probe saying, "Who is Egypt protecting? The criminals who kill the innocent or those who are struggling to liberate their lands and regain their freedom from the occupiers?"
