|BASSATINE NEWS the ONLY Jewish newsletter reporting directly from Egypt|
|A Community Chronicle put out by the Jewish Community Council (JCC) of Cairo since 1995|
|ARTICLE IN AL-GOMHURIA DAILY April 27, 2002|
Candid interview with JCC's Carmen Weinstein prominently displayed on page 4 of leading Egyptian daily.
Our Faith is guiltless of Sharon's thuggery… His warmongering lost out on a golden opportunity for peace..
Carmen Weinstein.. Egyptian Jew... Vice President of JCC speaking on behalf of the community,…a woman of honor and integrity, analyzes and speaks out on current predicament… strongly denies merger between Judaism and Zionism… as well as explaining difference between Judaism 'a religion'; and Israeli 'a nationality,' and denies any connection between Judaism and the inexpressible violations committed by Ariel Sharon..
With his country and people's interest at heart President Mubarak handled current "imbroglio" wisely and carefully... Egypt is safe… respects all religions.
JCC agrees with President Mubarak... severing diplomatic ties with Israel will not solve problem… Palestine and Israel need an umpire. JCC believes President Mubarak has the prerequisites for such a task.
Situation aggravated by what seems to be personal vendetta between Sharon and Arafat, menacing the security of the whole region and reviving antisemitism worldwide… Reviving 50 years-old memories when peace and prosperity were a dream away, the dream that became a reality when peace between Egypt and Israel was concluded a decade ago.
