Egyptian Worries

egypt and the iranian threat : Dry Bones cartoon.
It is sad that decades of peace with Israel were not used by the Egyptian government to combat anti-Semitism and demonization of Israel.

Excepts from a report by Middle East Online headlined "Egypt press blasts Nasrallah as 'war criminal'"
"CAIRO - The Egyptian press on Sunday slammed Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah as a 'war criminal who' should be put on trial. . . "A criminal who knows no mercy" cried the blood-red headline in the state-owned Al-Gomhuria which reserved the whole of its front page for an editorial bashing Nasrallah, repeatedly referring to him as "Sheikh Monkey."

"Sheikh Monkey, we will not allow you to belittle our judicial symbols, for you are a highway robber, a pure criminal who has killed his own people but we will not allow you to threaten the peace and security of Egypt," editor Mohammed Ali Ibrahim wrote.

"You and your gang are terrorists and soon... the public prosecutor will issue details of an investigation into your terrorist organisation," he said.

Al-Ahram newspaper, which is also state-owned, said Nasrallah's admission that Hezbollah is operating in Egypt provided grounds for prosecution.

"The admission by (Nasrallah) of sending agents into Egypt... puts him at the forefront of accusations and requires dealing with him under Egyptian law, or international law and issuing an (Interpol) red notice for his arrest," said editorial writer Ahmed Mussa." -more
