The United States must show more respect for the Arab world and meet by its pledge to build a Palestinian state, Mohammed Morsi tells David D. Kirkpatrick and Steven Erlanger of the New York Times.
Arabs and Americans have “a shared objective, each to live free in their own land, according to their customs and values, in a fair and democratic fashion,” [Morsi] said, adding that he hoped for “a harmonious, peaceful coexistence.” But he also argued that Americans “have a special responsibility” for the Palestinians because the United States had signed the 1978 Camp David accord.

The statements of Iranian military involvement can also be interpreted as the IRGC's way of threatening to increase its intervention, which would transform civil war in Syria into a regional war. The threat obviously aims to force Westerners, Turks, and Saudis to think twice before getting further embroiled in a proxy war. The ploy, however, could be too little, too late: Assad's regime may be beyond salvation, and increased IRGC presence in Syria is no guarantee for success.
