Obit: Mustafa Khalil, Egyptian peace negotiator

2 hours ago

CAIRO, Egypt (AP) — Mustafa Khalil, a former Egyptian prime minister who was an architect of the 1979 Camp David peace treaty between Egypt and Israel, has died, the state news agency reported Sunday. He was 88.

MENA said Khalil died late Saturday in a Cairo hospital, where he was being treated for an unspecified illness.

Khalil — then secretary-general of the ruling Arab Socialist Union part — accompanied late president Anwar Sadat in his historic visit to Jerusalem in November 1977. The visit paved the way for the negotiations mediated by then-U.S. President Jimmy Carter.

Khalil, who served as prime minister from 1978-1980, then headed the Egyptian team in negotiations with the Israelis at Camp David, which ended with the 1979 peace deal, the first between an Arab nation and Israel.

"Khalil contributed in serving the country for over 50 years and took part in making peace and building the basis of development," former U.N. Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali told MENA in reaction to Khalil's death.

"We continued negotiations together that ended in the Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty that launched the peace process in the region," said Boutros-Ghali, who — as deputy prime minister for foreign affairs — also went with Sadat on the Jerusalem trip and participated in the negotiations.

More recently, Khalil served as deputy chairman of the ruling National Democratic Party. He stepped down in November.

He is survived by his wife, Nehal, a son, Hisham, and a daughter, Zeinab. President Hosni Mubarak was expected to attend Khalil's funeral, which is scheduled for Monday, state newspapers reported.

Don't just open your mouth and prove yourself a fool....put it in writing.

It gets harder the more you know. Because the more you find out, the uglier everything seems.
