Are not We Best Buddies ??

Saudi Arabia is detaining an Egyptian Internet activist Youssef AL Ashamawy. Youssef is being accusing of spying on the kingdom for the Egyptian intelligence !! Yousif1224
Youssef is detained or in fact is in jail since last August 2008 !!?? He was forced to sign confession with the mentioned above accusation. Of course this is not an evidence , the doctors case in KSA is not finished yet. He worked for IT company that installed some systems for the Saudi Intelligence.
Now I got a silly question :
Why would Egypt spy on Saudi Arabia ??
Are not we best buddies ?? Are not we the good Sunni axis that stands against the Shiite axis of Evil !!??
I do not know if Mubarak will interfere this time but I do not have high hope.Youssef has been detained since last August ,also Mubarak did nothing for the two doctors ,in fact he visited the Kingdom and returned back without referring to them. Of course the Egyptian intelligence won’t comment or issue any press statement that denies or confirms the allegations of Saudi Arabia .They have not already issued a statement concerning Ashraf Marwan up till this moment for the record.Till now the human rights organizations in Egypt are following the matter.
From the political view I think this is an official step back in our relations with Saudi Arabia. Why now did the Kingdom announce the charge of Youssef after 4 months of his arrest ??
You do not accuse a citizen of another country of spying and expect that your relations with it will be fine. This is not the Yemeni case I am afraid ,it involves one of your citizens whom I do not know what he is going to face from punishment this time. The doctors with their list of charge are facing 1500 lashes while Youssef is accused of being a spy !!??
Of course our official newspapers ignored the whole incident.They have not received the permission.
Updated :
The Egyptian Foreign ministry denied the so called claims that Shamawy was detained because of Spy charges as he was detained for unspecified security reasons !!
