    JERUSALEM (AP) — Egypt has appointed a new ambassador to Israel, choosing an experienced career diplomat, officials from both countries said, in what some took as sign of positive relations between Israel and Egypt under an Islamist president in Cairo.

    Atef Salem el-Ahl has been serving as Egypt's consul in the Israeli resort town of Eilat. He will replace Yasser Reda, whose four-year term ends this summer. Israel's Foreign Ministry and Egypt's state media confirmed the appointment Sunday.

    The choice of an envoy familiar with Israel counters concerns in Jerusalem that relations with Cairo could be downgraded with the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

    It all seems to be good news out of Egypt these days - let's hope this guy can encourage both sides to the negotiating table, and maybe as a catalyst for a peace process.

    Let's hope what "seems to be good news coming out of Egypt these days" continues and is a beacon for other Arab Spring revolutions.

    I think the initial fear that the "Islamists" were going to tear up the peace agreement and attack Israel are subsiding. I never thought that was going to happen anyway.

    The major difference is that the Mubarak regime was at the service of Israel and that is no longer the case.

    The Mubarak regime was also close to Abbas while being mostly dismissive of the government in Gaza. That roll is reversing. There have been regular diplomatic interaction between Egypt an Gaza.

    Have you seen anything going on in the West Bank.

    I don't understand your position.

    Egypt just dissed Iran's IslamoNazis during Morsi's recent visit to Iran. It's all over Iranian news now. At the end of the day, Shiite Iran is supporting Syria's Assad, which is slaughtering Sunnis, Iran sides with Iraq's Shi'ites in their struggle against the Sunnis. Morsi has also just announced that he plans to visit Israel, officially, which is tantamount to blasphemy for the Iranians.

    The Arab Spring is about to get much bloodier.

    Roudy -

    Do you support Morsi visiting Israel and clamping down on Islamic extremism?
