Egyptian Deputy Prime Minister Yahia el-Gamal accused Israel Monday of inciting sectarian strife in Egypt, saying that American and Israeli security intelligence agencies do not want to leave Egypt on its own
Speaking to Lebanese newspaper Champress, Gamal said that the Egyptian people are not inclined towards extremism, and that the average Egyptian today has negative attitudes towards extremists.
The vice premier also said that despite US aid in helping "Israel implement their plans," the US is beginning to feel that Israel has become a burden because it prevents the US from normalizing relations in "a very important region."
