    If the army leads a transition, where the peace treaty with Israel is upheld, one of the most dreadful aspects of the Mubarak regime -at least from Israel's point of view- was the horrendous state-promoted anti-Semitism. According to a Pew opinion survey, 98% of Egyptians hold negative opinions about Jews (not even Israel). The change to democracy has to include the end of demonization of Jews and Israel. Al-Ahram hinted that its editorial bias must change, and reflect an unbiased view of both Egypt and the world. As the army gets time to attend this (which is understandably too early for so much it has on its plate) then it is important that both Israel, the EU, and the USA discuss this issue with Egypt. These hateful views can't change overnight. But the effort to plant healthier seeds from now on, and keep them up determinedly, must be sown from now on. That doesn't mean being uncritical of Israel. It means fairness, and withdrawing odious anti-Semitic libels the state encouraged to be broadcast from Egyptian media.
