- Egypt-Israel Relations “at Highest Level” in History – Zena Tahhan
Although many Egyptians continue to regard Israel as a threat and sympathize with the Palestinian cause, the relationship between the two countries has become markedly explicit under President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. “Egyptian-Israeli relations are today at their highest level in history,” Nathan Thrall, senior analyst for the International Crisis Group, told Al Jazeera.
