In three intense weeks, he traveled the length and breadth of the country. On the return, he wrote a provocative book, full of wry humor and keen insight, which became a best seller in Egypt. Ali Salem's A Drive to Israel is an engaging account of Israel through Egyptian eyes, and a deliberate challenge to Egypt's intellectual establishment.
