The discourse about Jewish Communists in Egypt shows that the perception
of minorities is linked to the majority’s perception of its own condition.
Jewish Communists became politically active in a period when Egyptian
society as a whole was in a process of change. Where that change would
lead was open. Different political and social forces were engaged in a
power struggle. Young Jews turned to communism because it seemed to be the
best basis for social justice and equality.
