The need to preempt Iran and export gas to Egypt was the reason the government gave to push through its controversial plan for Israel's natural gas. Now, this reason may no longer exist.03:48 31.08.15 | 0 comments
Let me clear up your confusion. The Ben Maimon Synagogue was the synagogue of Rabbi Moshe ben Maimon, the Rambam. To the Egyptians, the Rambam is sort of a national hero -- not as a great Jewish rabbi, but as an Egyptian doctor who was a pioneer in medical science. It was in Egypt that the Rambam conducted his studies on the circulatory and nervous systems, centuries before European doctors began their studies. The Egyptians even had the Rambam on a postage stamp a few years back.
