Egyptian journalist Magdi Allam, visiting Israel, says, "'Hamas' terror is not a reaction to the occupation. Israel's right to exist is today the international criterion for distinguishing between the terrorist camp and the camp of life."

On the other side, he says, are Western countries and "supporters of the right to live."

Magdi Allam is the winner of the Dan David prize for his "exceptional journalistic work and commitment to freedom of the press."
