Freemasonry in the Middle East

This question is asked with all due respect. I read recently that Freemasonry is outlawed in most countries in the Middle East, save Israel, Morocco, and Lebanon. Perhaps sharia law countries, Freemasonry might be considered heresy, similar to the Papal Bull still in force (even if honored in the breach in most Western countries), but I don't understand the ban in many other countries, like Egypt, for example. Can anyone shed light on this, please? Thank you.

Most of it has to do with Freemasonry being labeled as a Zionist organization.

There is an irregular grand lodge in Egypt.
There is regular masonry in Cyprus, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey.
