Egypt swaps arrested American-Israeli for 25 prisoners
Question of the Day
Since Mr. Mubarak was toppled, Egypt’s military rulers often have warned against what they call “foreign” attempts to destabilize the country. And like other Arab states, Egypt has a long history of blaming internal problems on Israel.
While the military leaders who now rule Egypt have vowed to follow suit, they have unnerved Israel with overtures to Israel’s enemy, the Hamas militant group, which rules Gaza, a tiny patch of Palestinian territory that borders both countries.
Those improved ties appear to have helped Egypt finally broker a long-elusive prisoner swap between Israel and Hamas last week, in which Israel traded hundreds of Palestinian prisoners for Israeli Staff Sgt. Gilad Schalit, who had been held by Hamas in Gaza for more than five years.
