One of the public complaints that Avigdor Lieberman made re: Mubararek was his failure to visit Israel other than for Rabin's funeral.
A nunmber of years ago while I was OU President,I was part of a small Presidents Conf. delegation that met in Blair House with Mubarak.During the course of the diuscussion, I asked him exactly why he had never visited Jerusalem?
He answered with a question "What's so important about Jerusalem? with a smile and twinkle in his eye.
The fact that the Egyptians said they would not talk to Lieberman, and yesterday Egyptian Intelligence Chief Suleiman not only met with him,but the result was reported as being fruitful.Furthermore Lieberman was invited to Cairo.
Thus as I said a few days ago,Israel should be proud of Lieberman since he heads a party that won a significant number of seats in the Knesset.Those countries that wish to deal with Israel will come aroud to the position that each country has the right to choose their own representatives.
