Tel Aviv fears 'anti-Israel' Egypt

More than two months after the Egyptian revolution that ousted former President Hosni Mubarak, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has expressed fears that the new government in Egypt is becoming 'anti-Israel.'

Addressing a gathering of European Union ambassadors in East Jerusalem Al-Quds last week, Netanyahu said that some of the voices coming out of Egypt show “hostility” toward Tel Aviv, Israeli daily Haaretz reported on Saturday.

The Israeli premier said he is “especially concerned” over recent remarks made by Egyptian Foreign Minister Nabil al-Arabi.

The Egyptian top diplomat, along with other senior officials, has reportedly called Israel Egypt's “enemy.”

Commenting on the possibility of economic ties with Tel Aviv, Egypt's Finance Minister Samir Radwan has also stressed that Cairo did not need investments from "the enemy."

Netanyahu's worries are echoed by several other senior Israeli officials.

This comes as mass anti-Israeli demonstrations were held outside Israel's embassy in Cairo and its consulate in the Egyptian city of Alexandria during the past weeks.

On April 8, over one million Egyptian protesters gathered in Cairo's Liberation Square urging their military rulers to lift the almost four-year long crippling siege of the Gaza Strip.

The protesters also called for the expulsion of the Israeli ambassador in Egypt.

The developments come almost two months after a historic revolution ousted former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.

Egypt's toppled regime under Mubarak served the interests of Israel by assisting and keeping silent on the killing of Gazans.
