As public support for the United States in Egypt increases as a direct result of phase one, we can then focus on a broader issue that is sure to impact US-Egyptian relations if it is not resolved. If we are able to improve the historically weary relations between Israel and Egypt we will be directly improving American-Egyptian relations. A mutual understanding between Egyptian and Israeli people will confirm stronger homeland security it all three countries of a complex triangle. Former Egyptian president, Hosni Mubarak, had been in alliance with the United States with regards to Israel and—despite it’s affiliation with a rooted radical Islamist group called the Muslim Brotherhood— the new government under Morsi confirms that relations will stay solid between the countries.  However, with constantly changing governments and a changing global world it is time that the United States needs to ensure that such peace will last and be as unwavering as possible through revisions and updates of international treaties such as the Camp David Accords. With an end goal of cutting military spending and maintaining American-Egyptian relations, we must first stabilize relations with Israel focusing on the Gaza strip, a current point of stress.   The creation of a summit that meets every decade to update and re-implement the Camp David Accords in a way that is more compatible with the fluctuating international political field is crucial to ensuring long-term piece in the volatile region of the Middle East. As with any treaty, it is crucial to review past agreements from a new and updated perspective that takes constantly changing governments into consideration. The United States must push Egypt to support dialogue between Israel and Palestine and take a lead role while the United States takes more of a backseat. With implementation of phase one this will be possible and Egypt will want to secure a liaison with the US through Israel.

Within this newly developed summit, the presence of both Arab and western countries must be present. An update of the Camp David Accords will include a clarification on vague point listed on the document. To instill real change, specific resolutions need to be passed, especially in relation to the Gaza strip. We must convince Israel to stop its blockade of supplies to Gaza that has created a devastating and impoverished situation for Palestinians living there. If the US wants to see relations improve between Egypt and them, the US must be willing to be tough on Israel as well.? Why should they? How would Israel listen? America will push these reforms by threatening to pause aid to both countries if they do not listen.  Moreover, releasing political prisoners on both sides will lead to a more fair ground for both sides.  **elaborate on political prisoners. If the United States can successfully follow through with this summit then multiple positive outcomes will arise. First, the Palestinians in Gaza will have food and won't depend on the UN, and in return would see Israel in a more positive light for clearing the blockade. Secondly, Hamas will be seen as less of a hero to the Palestinians because they won't need the aid that Hamas donates to the stifled region. Rather, Hamas will be seen increasingly as a terrorist since he would be bombing Israel which has initiated peace. ** appendix on Hamas** appendix on the geographical region of Gaza strip. Hamas’s influence will be decreased automatically by opening the Gaza strip. And most importantly, both Israel and Egypt will have more allies in the region with the successful of this big compromise. The United States has a vested interest in the stability of Egypt, Israel and the peace that is currently upheld. Updating treaty to reflect ideals and necessities of modern times and changing governments. This must be done to continue meeting the best interests of all parties involved.
