Egyptian Envoy to Israel "Optimistic"

(IsraelNN.com) Egypt's new ambassador to Israel Sunday said he now sees the "light at the end of the tunnel" which he didn't see three years ago. Egypt recalled its ambassador from Tel Aviv in 2000 following the outbreak of violence.

Mohammed Assem Ibrahim reported that he spoke with terrorist organizations who met in Cairo last week with the Palestinian Authority (PA). He said the talks were a move in the right direction.
