This seems to have flown completely under the radar.

From Egypt Today, May 1:

President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi received a delegation from the Jewish Institute for National Security of America (JINSA) on Tuesday in the presence of Abbas Kamel, interim president of Egypt’s intelligence services.

During the meeting, President Sisi expressed Egypt's keenness to be in constant contact with all sects of the American society in order to enhance common understanding and intensify consultations on the diverse challenges facing the region, noting the decades-long strategic relations between the two countries.

For their part, the American attendees stressed the importance of the strategic relations between Egypt and the United States in all fields, expressing appreciation for Egypt’s efforts on various fronts, especially in addressing terrorism in general and the framework of Comprehensive Operation Sinai 2018 in particular.

The delegation also praised Sisi's efforts in countering extremist ideology and realizing economic development through the steps undertaken as part of the country’s economic reform program, stressing that the economy is back to the recovery path.

The president also stressed the importance of supporting the national institutions and working on enabling them to carry out their roles and responsibilities in maintaining security and combating terrorism.

He also reiterated Egypt's support for the international efforts and initiatives aimed at achieving a just and comprehensive settlement of the Palestinian issue, which lies at the heart of priorities for the Arab world.

President Sisi stressed that a just and lasting solution to the Palestinian issue will provide a new reality by shaping public opinion, which will contribute to the stability and security of the region as a whole. 
JINSA is a hawkish group, supporting withdrawal from the Iran deal and with seeming unwavering support for Israel.

This visit is not mentioned on their webpage as of this writing. I'm curious why not.
