Morsi’s Letter to Israel Fake

A letter from President Mohammed Morsi of Egypt to Israeli President Shimon Peres caused a bit of controversy, after Egyptian officials claimed it was not real. The letter stated, “I am looking forward to exerting our best efforts to get the Middle east Peace Process back to its right track in order to achieve security and stability for all peoples of the region, including that Israeli people.” A spokesman for Morsi denied that the president had written the letter, calling it “totally untrue” and a “fabrication.” But an official in Israeli President Shimon Peres’s office said that aides had received the official communiqué from the Egyptian ambassador to Israel by registered mail and by fax from the embassy in Tel Aviv.
