Egyptian Activist Forced to Flee for Backing Israel over Hamas

(Times of Israel) Stuart Winer - Dalia Ziada, an acclaimed Egyptian author and liberal democracy activist, has been forced to flee her home country amid a furious backlash after she praised Israel's military campaign against Hamas, saying it will benefit the entire region if the terror group is eliminated. Ziada told the Institute for National Security Studies, an Israeli think tank, three weeks ago that she hopes Israel's efforts to remove Hamas from power in Gaza succeeds. She told Israel's Channel 11 on Wednesday, "I fully support what Israel is doing to eliminate Hamas....I support it 100% and urge everyone to support it." Without Iran-backed Hamas or other extremist Islamist organizations, the situation in the Middle East would "without a doubt be a thousand times better." She added, "If it weren't for the security collaboration of Israel with us, with Egypt... the terror organizations would still be in Sinai today." The terror groups behind deadly terror attacks on Egyptian security forces in Sinai "were established by Hamas."
