    ... lies in the fact that there has not been "mutual" dehumanization. The level of hate speech about Jews in Egypt is absolutely off the charts, it is so high, and calls for outright genocide against the Jews have been common on Egyptian TV for decades. Not only are calls to massacre the Arabs/Muslims not common on Israeli TV; any TV station in Israel that broadcast such calls would likely be shut down, and while there may be an incredibly tiny sliver of the population that believes in slaughtering Arabs, this sliver is vanishingly small. In contrast, the level of rabid anti-Semitic hatred in Egypt is extremely high - likely greater than 50% of the population. So don't bother to say "mutual" dehumanization and demonization. Israelis don't blame Egypt or the Arabs for every problem that they have in Israel. As for the rest, Diab really has made a number of common-sense points. One can only hope that he, himself, will be more careful in the future when he instinctively blames Israel for happenings in the region that are not at all related to her.
