"..the cancellation of ceremony comes following ... 'aggression by Israeli authorities against Muslim sanctuaries.'" Oh that makes a lot of sense. Penalizing Egyptian citizens who pay Egyptian taxes and contribute to Egyptian society just because of their religion. If the Egyptian authorities have a beef with Israel, that's fine - but go take it up with Israel, not innocent people who have nothing to do with the Israeli actions you are so upset about. It's obvious the Egyptians lump all of their Jewish inhabitants into one pot: since they're Jewish they MUST be Zionist. That's sheer bigotry. Going by Egypt's logic, Christians and Jews here in the U.S. should boycott any mosque ceremonies because of 911. Ludicrous you say? Yes, I agree, just a ludicrous as what the Egyptians are doing.
