We shouldn’t get carried away by Egyptian FM’s pro-Israel comment, says ex-envoy

Former ambassador to Cairo Yitzhak Levanon is not among those who needed the latest fury involving an Egyptian Olympic athlete to convince him that Egyptian Foreign Minister Samar Shoukry’s recent comments about Israel were not a turning point in bilateral ties. Because Levanon was not swept up by Shoukry’s comments in the first place.

Shoukry sparked an uproar on Sunday by saying, in answer to a question at a meeting he held with Egyptian students, that Israel’s actions against Palestinians did not constitute terrorism.
