Al-Masry Al-Youm (Egypt), November 2, 2010
The Kul al-Arab website [www.alarab.net], published by Palestinians resident in Israel, has reported that that former Israeli military intelligence chief Amos Yadlin -- on the occasion of his official handover to his successor, General Afif Khufifi, a few days ago -- said: "Egypt represents the biggest playing field for Israeli military intelligence activity. This activity has developed according to plan since 1979."
According to several Palestinian and Lebanese news websites, Yadlin also said: "We have penetrated Egypt in many areas, including the political, security, economic, and military spheres. We have succeeded in promoting sectarian and social tension there so as to create a permanent atmosphere of turmoil, in order to deepen the discord between Egyptian society and the government and make it difficult for any regime following that of Hosni Mubarak to alleviate this discord."
