Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has taken sides with Israel, blamed Hamas for the massacre of hundreds of Palestinians in the Gaza War.

"How long will Arab blood continue to be spilled, only to hear those who admit to miscalculating the scope and scale of Israel's response?" Mubarak said.

He made the remarks with regard to the 23-day Israeli war, which killed at least 1,330 people including almost 500 children.

"The resistance must take into account victories and losses,” said the president. "It is responsible for the people, who in turn should settle the score [with the resistance] over the gains it has achieved, but also the sacrifices, the pain and the destruction it has caused."

Mubarak also alleged that "They (Hamas and other Palestinian factions) are trying to take advantage of Israeli aggression to force a new reality on the current Palestinian and Arab situation. A new reality that will alter the equation and reorganize the balance in favor of known regional powers and will serve their agenda."

Egypt kept the Rafah border-crossing closed during the Gaza war and after the war, it prevented humanitarian aid supplies from freely entering into the besieged Gaza Strip.

Cairo also reportedly misled Hamas before the start of the Gaza war and ensured that Tel Aviv was not to begin a war against Hamas. The misinformation raised the number of casualties Israel inflicted on Hamas during the first day of the war.
