"They wanted to overturn the regional order," said Gilad.
"Their intention was to hit the Egyptian government hard, regardless of its identity, to break down chords peace and cause a general change in the Middle East. It is a kind of elaborate attacks of al-Qaida line of thinking or global jihad.
"Now this terrorism, according to Gilad, "threatens the whole region. If were to win, everything will collapse." It seems that - Gilas added - Egypt has reached a new awareness ... and will do everything possible to combat terrorism. This is also its responsibility."(ANSAmed).
