Mideast Violence Could Turn Into Terrorism: MubarakEgyptian President Hosni Mubarak Tuesday warned that the Palestinian-Israeli violence could turn into "terrible" terrorism if the United States does not take concrete measures to help end the nine-month bloodshed between the two sides.
Mubarak issued the warning while inaugurating a new bridge on the River Nile, the state-run Middle East News Agency reported.
"If the United States does not push for a solution to the violence, it would take the shape of terrorism and the Mideast region would become the scene of terrible terrorism in the world," he was quoted as saying by the agency.
"The United States has many interests in the region, therefore there should be American action regarding this issue," Mubarak said.
He called on the U.S. to "move and intervene." "Otherwise, the U.S. interests will certainly be affected and we shall all be affected," he added.
U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell is expected to arrive in Cairo Wednesday within the context of his Mideast tour in an attempt to consolidate a shaky U.S.-brokered ceasefire between the Israelis and Palestinians, which went into effect on June 13.
Over 600 people, most of them Palestinians, have been killed since the outbreak of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict sparked by Israeli violation of an Islamic holy shrine in East Jerusalem last September.
