Egypt’s Sisi knows Hamas for what it is – an extremist Islamist organization, closely tied to the Muslim Brotherhood.
An examination of Egyptian public opinion in the run-up to the election might have yielded hints of the less-than-wholehearted enthusiasm of the electorate, taken as a whole, for al-Sisi.
Egypt itself has come full circle these past three years – from military régime to short-lived democracy and back again.
Among those killed was Abd al Basit, whom the officials described as the group's military 'emir.'

In an interview with El Balad TV on Friday, Zind said in answer to a question on whether he intends to imprison journalists who criticize him: "I would imprison anyone, even if it is the Prophet."
Egyptians are reassessing 1950s-era nationalization policies that squeezed out the Jewish community and other ethnic minorities.
Sisi has launched a tough security crackdown since Morsi's overthrow. Security forces killed hundreds of supporters of his Muslim Brotherhood in the streets and arrested thousands of others.
The big question yet to be answered is will Sisi deliver on his promises to create jobs and improve the standard of living for all Egyptians.
Former Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi's death sentence could add fuel to an already raging Islamist insurgency.

Former army chief Abdel Fatah al-Sisi expected to become Egypt's next president, meaning Egypt will likely revert to rule by men from the military.
In Qatar, Turkey, Britain and elsewhere, hundreds of activists have set about trying to isolate Egypt's army-backed government diplomatically.
Should Sisi be elected as is generally assumed, he will have to decide whether to go along with the cold peace or to take the bold decision to promote cooperation with Israel for the greater benefit of both countries.
The deal would include advanced aircraft, monitoring equipment and other sophisticated weapons that would be used to fight terrorism emanating from Sinai.
