    For security reasons, that's hardly relevant. For political, cultural and economic reasons, it is insignificant too. What is important though, is that Egyptian daily newspaper is admitting Egyptians partook in the terrorist murders of innocent Israelis. That should put cold clothes over the feverish calls for an "Israeli apology" Turkish-style. There are indeed some signals by the Egyptian junta, that they don't want to go the Turkish path after all: they didn't recall their ambassador hysterically, nor called for abrogating the Egyptian-Israeli peace accord, nor did they censor that Egyptians gathered with Palestinians from Gaza to commit these atrocities. Moreover, it seems the ruling junta has an ascendancy over the Palestinian terror groups PRC and Islamic Jihad, who were responsible for the barages of rockets, artillery shells and missiles onto Israel, most of whose trajectory was towards populated areas were successfully intercepted by Iron Dome batteries. As grave as it all is, there are hopeful elements still.
