    This restored historic synagogue has absolutely nothing to do with Zionism or even the modern State of Israel. Mr Hawass exposes himself as a racist & bigot by his actions, which clearly amount to a deeply held antisemitism.This long time self-promoter, who purposely wears his Indiana Jones hat to create a media image for himself, apparently wishes to deny the historical significance this synagogue has to Egypt itself.The Egyptians restored it(allegedly)to acknowledge this important part of their history (and to produce a revenue stream from enhanced Jewish tourism to Egypt). What his action amounts to is yet an other example of the total antisemitism which permeates Egyptian society. It is not inconsistent with Egyptian TV's multi-episode depiction of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion (shown across the Arab world during Ramadan) and their national association of "journalists" boycott of Israeli journalists and punishment of any journalist who attempts contacts with Israelis.
