Mubarak said that the crossing would be only opened when the PA leadership's forces return to Gaza and in the presence of European observers.

In a statement from Brussels on Wednesday the campaign described Mubarak's statement as a "stab in the back of the Palestinian people".

It charged that the Egyptian stand represents an unprecedented actual participation in the aggression on Gaza.

The campaign asked Mubarak to retract his position, holding him responsible for the lives of the wounded who fall in hundreds in the ongoing Israeli military attacks on Gaza.
