Does Mossad Have a ‘Deep State’ Behind Egyptian Politics It Uses to Keep Egypt in Line? – Al Jazeera English
President Morsi was toppled in a coup in June 2013, after only one year in office. It is of note that Mossad refers to the “Deep State”, a term that describes the powerful forces in the military, bureaucracy, judiciary and economic elites that worked to undermine democratic rule in Egypt.
The man who led the military takeover and is now Egypt’s president, General Abdel Fatah Sisi, epitomizes the deep state and had consistently warm relations with Israel. And Israel has long had a stake in Egypt being governed by a friendly regime.
The intelligence communities of both countries have had an entwined relationship since their governments signed the Camp David Accords in 1978. President Sisi was previously Egypt’s Director of Military Intelligence.
