Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said on Tuesday at the United Nations that Palestinians should strive to live peacefully alongside Israelis, and should work towards co-existence. 

From the Jerusalem Post:

UNITED NATIONS - Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi urged the Palestinians to overcome their differences and be ready to co-exist with each other and with Israelis in safety and security.

Following Egyptian-mediated reconciliation talks with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' Western-backed Fatah faction, Islamist Hamas said on Sunday it would dissolve its "administrative committee" to enable the president's administration to retake control in the Gaza Strip.

On Monday, Sisi met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Pictures of the meeting showed the two men seemingly conversing well with each other.

Let's hope that Sisi's message is taken to heart.
