Apparently, in Egypt it's not a problem for a man to punch a woman in the face as long as she's Jewish.

If the result of a prank on an Egyptian candid camera show is any indication, Israelis shouldn't expect normal relations with Egyptians any time soon. During a recently aired episode, three Egyptian actors were pranked by being led to believe they were appearing on an Israeli television program.
Suffice it to say, the Egyptian actors were not pleased to be with the Israelis.

All three "victims" of the prank were enraged at the prospect of merely being in the same room with people they presumed to be Jews. Two became violent and one even assaulted the young female interviewer.
The prank seems to speak volumes about the level of hatred for Jews and Israelis in Egyptian popular culture, and also, according to Memri, about what is considered acceptable behavior in the Muslim world.
