Egypt threatened to abrogate 'peace treaty' if there was a Gaza ground op

Here's another reason that probably made the government of Israel think twice about invading Gaza on the ground: Egypt threatened to abrogate the 'peace treaty' if Israel invaded Gaza.
Prior to Wednesday's cease-fire agreement between Israel and Hamas, Egypt threatened that an IDF ground operation into the Gaza Strip would endanger the peace treaty between Jerusalem and Cairo, Channel 2 reported on Thursday.

According to the report, Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi refused to speak directly with Israeli representatives during the cease-fire negotiations, despite the US urging him to do so.
This ought to make Israel think again about the value of pieces of paper that claim to bring 'peace.'
