As the world watches to see whether Egypt becomes a beacon of hope for the region or descends into the dark night of Islamist tyranny, there are particularly distressing signs in Egypt’s state-run press that relations with neighboring Israel could be poisoned by hate.
In a disgraceful example, the Egyptian weekly October Weekly in its August 28, 2011 issue, published a front page article titled “The New Nazis: The Black Record of the Israeli Generals,” by ‘Ibrahim ’Abd Al-Ghani.

The laugh is that most Egyptian military men hold AH and the German Generals in high regard ......... the brilliant defensive and offensive manuevers of the German Army are taught at the military academies. In the early-80s, I was a dinner guest of an Egyptian Army General who lived in the very wealthy enclave of Gazhira Island .... guess who's potrait hung in his study? When I asked him where he got the oil painting, he said he acquired it from the estate of a diplomat who got it himself from the German Embassy in Brazil when the Embassy was closed during the war.
