Arab Spring was about the rise of a population against a repressive, oppressive regime, rising food prices and diminished employment prospects. It didn't start out as an antisemitic or anti-Israel endeavour. But those in power will do anything to keep their power, even if it means controlling a rebellious population by allowing the population to direct their anger toward the Jews, toward Israel. The Egyptian oligarchs encourage or perhaps conveniently fail to discourage the anger of the people from being directed against Israel. The oligarchs manage to avoid having to relinquish power and redistribute wealth by doing so. Hey - even the police emergency laws are now back in full force in Egypt.
