Israel's only friend in Egypt

`Ali Salim, the vulgar and crude (and plagiarizing playwright) is Israel's only friend in Egypt.  He, by definition, was a staunch supporter of Sadat and Mubarak's dictatorship.  I wrote about him before: he speaks well of Arab-Israeli peace at WINEP, but on Aljazeera he rails against Israel and even Jews (all of the handful of Israel's friends in the Arab world are rabid anti-Semitic).  Here, he attacks Ahmad Shahat in the mouthpiece of Prince Salman and his sons (Ash-Sharq Al-Awsat).
