DM Barak Denies Israel Thinks Egypt is Dictatorship

Sunday, November 4th, 2012

Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak is insisting that Israel does not consider Egypt’s government a “shocking dictatorship”, after Defense Ministry official Amos Gilad made the statement to students in Herzliya on Friday.

Gilad called the Egyptian Spring and recent elections a “tremendous historic change in Egypt”, and insisted that Israel’s relationship with Egypt has deteriorated since president Muhammed Morsi was voted in.  “Out of desire for democracy has grown a shocking dictatorship,” the Associated Press quotes Gilad as saying.  “Where are all the young people who demonstrated in Tahrir square? They have disappeared.”
