    Egypt's government has a public that is less than in love with Israel. Egypt had 5 policemen killed by Israeli troops which had invaded Egyptian territory. Egpyt's government has to have something to show the public that it did not just roll over when Israeli troops mistakenly killed Egyptian police. Netanyahu's honor makes it impossible for him and his government to admit any error no matter how mistaken. Arab 'honor' has nothing to do with the diplomatic problem. The situation in Egypt is fragile. The Egyptian government has an operation underway in Sinai to suppress the same terrorists as Israel is fighting. The question is will Israel be wise enough to ease it's allies problems by admitting what appears to be an error? The answer seems to be NO! And thus Israel will stoke suspicions by the conspiracy minded that it in fact fabricated the whole incident. Too bad there isn't in the entire Netanyahu government who is man enough to stand up and say 'we screwed up."
