The Jews’ Fate in Post-Morsi Egypt

For Egypt’s tiny Jewish community, improvements remain scarce since Morsi's demise.
The Ben Ezra Synagogue was originally a Christian church, purchased for 20,000 dinars by Abraham Ben Ezra. It is believed that on this spot, the Pharaoh's daughter discovered the baby Moses.

Zamir also notes that it is dangerous for Jews living in Egypt to have any connection with Israel, including maintaining relationships with Egyptian Jews living in Israel. They are even forced to take anti-Israel stances. For this reason, Zamir cannot help Egyptian Jews directly, despite her deep desire to do just that. The anti-Israel hatred is evidently so strong in Egypt that the Egyptian Jewish community was forced to remove the name “Israeli” from their official name in Arabic. “The hate is really bad. Only when there will be democracy will there be peace. This will happen only when there is acceptance of the other,” Zamir emphasizes.

  1. These are all balatant lies… fabricated stories to further damage the clean image of Muslim Brotherhood. When they talk they tell lies… when they promise they never keep their promises… these would describe whom the Jews are…..

  2. Yechiel Baum says:

    Umno – how stupid you are since you have no intimate knowledge of life in Egypt as a Jew. You probably believe the pyramids were build by the Egyptians and not by the Jews as stated in the historical Haggadah. What religion do you belong to as I never heard of your religion entitled stupidity.

  3. I love how you muslim brotherhood bastards keep playing the victim card. I hope the military crushes you and you go back to your holes like the rats you are. I also hope post morsi egypt reinstates funding for the jews and promotes greater tolerance for these people.
