79% of Egyptians Would Not Allow Jews to Return to Egypt

Peace… in our time.
A poll in Akhbar El-Youm , Egypt’s most widely  circulated state owned newspaper, asked readers whether they would agree with the idea of the Egyptian Jews who had been expelled from Egypt returning to the country. 79% percent stated that they disagree. 18% said that they agree. And 3% had no opinion.
That’s not surprising as in a 2011 poll, only 2% of Egyptians  had a positive view of Jews.
Before the war, Egypt had an estimated  60,000 to 100,000 Jews. By 1976 that number had fallen to 200. Between then thousands of Jews were arrested, locked up or deported. Sustained persecution  wiped out the Jewish population of Egypt.
The same phenomenon has been taking place, at a slower rate, with Christians in Egypt. Meanwhile the EU will be giving Egypt $6.5 dollars and Obama will be giving Egypt a  whole bunch of F16s and Abrams tanks.
