Egyptian authorities have arrested a local resident for “loving Israel,” the Al-Masry Al-Youm newspaper reported on Sunday.

According to the report, the 24-year-old was arrested in the Sohag governorate in southern Egypt. He was arrested for allegedly writing to Israeli nationals through Facebook and criticizing Egypt and Egyptians as well as declaring his love for the Jewish state. […]

Police say the suspect revealed that he has met several Israeli tourists when he traveled in 2011 to Sharm al-Sheikh and worked as a driver at a tourist resort, convincing him to travel to and live in Israel. He added that he went to the Israeli embassy in Cairo to try and get a visa claiming he was going to visit Jerusalem but was unsuccessful.

Egypt is notorious for arresting people which it blames of being “Israeli spies.” …

The guy realized when he actually met Israelis that his government and his religious teachers had told him big lies about Israel and Jews. They want him to hate, hate, hate, but the reality is that they all can only dream of living in the Jewish state. The Muslims abuse their own citizens by turning them into hate machines, so that they won’t complain about how bad it is under Islam. Muslims have more civil rights and a better life in Israel than in all the Muslim countries. What a tragedy that Egyptians try to stifle the facts.

This is partially why Stalin would not let American and British officers observe fighting on the Eastern Front during the Great Patriotic War. (Besides learning about Russian equipment and tactics.) He feared that Russians who became familiar Americans and Brits would find they were really not the monsters he wanted to paint them as. The information about advances in German armor and tactics since the Battle of France 1940 would have saved many American and British lives.
