Unfortunately, Giggles, the people of Egypt have been brainwashed for decades with crude antisemitic cartoons and tv series, the like of which one only finds in the nazi paper Der Stuermer. so they are not really objectively informed about the nature of Israel- neither the good nor the bad sides of Israel. Despite the 'cold peace' between israel and Egypt (for which Israel returned the captured Sinai completely) Egypt has used Israel as a scapegoat for the dissatisfaction and rage of the Egyptian people about their dictatorial regime. The classic tactic of all oppressive regimes: blame the Jews. things are more complex than you describe, Giggles!
