Egyptians boycott Cairo synagogue re-dedication

Elder of Ziyon reports that the Egyptian government boycotted the re-dedication of the Maimonides synagogue in Cairo earlier this week, because they were angry that 'Israeli representatives' were invited to the ceremony by Cairo's tiny Jewish community.

You may recall that the invited guests included "members of the Cairo Jewish community, the Egyptian diplomatic corps, former Israeli ambassadors and representatives of the state. A group of Chabad Hassidim will also attend the ceremony and help in rededicating the synagogue."

I'm not even sure whether 'representatives of the state' in that list means Israel or Egypt. But even if it means Israel, I still don't understand the objection. Don't we have a 'peace treaty' with Egypt? Would the Egyptians expect to be invited if a large Islamic museum were dedicated in Jerusalem or Tel Aviv?

"large Islamic museum "- with what in it? Skulls? Dead suicide bombers?
