EGYPTIAN JEWS

Its a shame that only a very few Egyptian Jews remain in Egypt now...don't you ever wonder what happened to them, those people were EGYTPIAN, and they were an integral part of our society and lived in harmony with their countrymen as equal citizens, Egyptian jews were just like any other Egyptian, but unfortunatley once the ZIONISM movement started many Egyptiians didn't understand the difference between Zionism and Judaism...and the sentiment against them turned bitter, specially after the ."LAVON AFFAIR where Egyptian jews were recruited by Israel to spy on Egypt and bomb several key foreign targets in Egypt, after that many Egyptians mistrusted all Egyptian Jews.

Anyways now adays most egyptians dont understand THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN JUDAISM AND ZIONISM which is very sad. I am 100% against Zionism and the autrocities the state of Israel commits...but i am not against Judaism and have a deep respect for that religion, specially that i am a muslim i know that the Prophet lived peacfully with the jews and said they must be treated well when living amongst muslims, since they are people of the book. Read the Article below regarding jews of Egypt.

THIS PICTURE SHOWS HOW IT WAS PRETTY NORMAL TO BE A JEW IN EGYPT, THIS IS GENERAL NAGUIB SHAKING HANDS WITH THE RABBI OF EGYPT....
