Egyptians Ransack Israeli Embassy in Cairo

Egyptian Mobs ransacking Israeli Embassy in Cairo

Fox News reported Friday that  Egyptians assaulted and ransacked the Israeli Embassy in Cairo. The Israeli Ambassador  his family and staff  fled escorted by police, driven to Cairo airport where a military plane took them home to Israel.  The embassy  was torn apart, documents scattered by the huge mob of protesres  who  assaulted and pierced the high security wall with sledghammers. All while Egyptian police  stood by watrcing  not lifting a finger  to quell the rampaging mob or make arrests.  It is not lost on many of us, that the ruling Supreme Military Council is either indifferent or simply following the course of least resistance since the eruption of the Arab Spring and downfall of the Mubarak government..   Every Friday, Salafist preachers in Cairo  stoke hatred  of Jews and Israel. They demand that the 1979 Peace Treaty between the two countries be torn up ending the Cold Peace -a reference to the lack of support by  ordinary Egyptians..  Given the recent  terrror attacks at  Eilat and  accusations that Israeli  forces while in pursuit of the terrorists  may have  shot and killed accidentally  five Egyptian border police  during the action tensions have risen dramatically in Cairo and other major cities in Egypt.  As a result, the Egyptian interim government called home its Ambassador in Tel Aviv.  That riggered mounting portests at the Israeli Embassy in Cairo.   Egypt is still holding Ilan Grapel, a dual American-Israeli citizen who was arrested in June while touring Egypt and accused of spying on behalf of the Mossad..  Egypt,  with the condonment of Israel, sent more than 2000 troops and tanky scouring the Sinai Peninsula seeking  alleged Al Qaeda terrorists. Israel has deployed troops to the border with Egypt and has contracted for the construction of a virtual 120 mile long wall separating the two countries. The irony is that deep in the Sinai peninsula is a Multi-National Force and Observers  group (MFO) that was to act as a trip wire to avoid  possible conflicts. Among the  MFO contingent are US service personnel. That aspect of the  Egyptian Israeli peace treaty may have been voided  to allow Egyptian troops into the Sinai  as part of the hunt for al Qaeda and Palestinian terrorists. Egypt has also  arrested  four  Israelis sent to  guard commercial vessels in the Gulf of Aqaba.  Many have asked  whether the US-orchestrated peace treaty may have compounded the problem when it forced Israel to give up control of the Sinai peninsula, making Israel’s southern border increasingly vulnerable.  The Cold Peace appears to be heating up.

 

According to thFoxNews report, Israel’s Minister of Defense Ehud Barak contacted US Defense Secretary Leon Panetti asking for assistance to secure.the embassy,  Given the crowds of several thousand engaged in protests and ransacking the Israeli Embassy, the Egyptian military police were finally forced to send in troops, tanks and fire tear gas to disperse the mobs.  The Obama White House, which had high hopes for the Arab Spring in Egypt is now caught in the dilemma  of its own making trying to  resolve the untenable situation. This latest development comes just days before the looming unilateral declaration of Statehood for Palestine at the UN General Assembly sessions in Manhattan. .  However in Cairo things have spun out of control of the Supreme Military Council chief Tantwai, who succeeded the dethroned Mubarak. Now, he is the object of scorn by the mobs in Tahrir Square in Cairo.

 

The Cold Peace appears to be  rapidly heating up.

  1. I predict a hot war against Israel very soon, I hope the Israeli’s are up to it. Although they are professional fighters fighting what is basically a rag tag mob of poor, illiterate conscripts,

    “In cases of defence ’tis best to weigh
    The enemy more mighty than he seems:”

    The one thing you can guarantee is our feminised “rulers” in the West, neatly caught on the petard of their own contradictory rhetoric: the Arab spring, move towards democracy, those liberal socialists throwing of the yoke of oppression etc, and embarrassed with having to explain the millions they’ve poured into the Middle East to bolster their own racial and cultural illusions, will display a Cognitive Dissonance worthy of Neville Chamberlain. As they filter the facts to bolster their own illusions, they will dither as Israel falls, or attempt to make Israel give some concessions in the belief that if only Islam can be given what it wants, they will stop.
    I don’t know, and often despair; when is our Poland going to come, when are we finally going to see National Socialism (or do I mean Islam?), I often get the two confused for some reason, for what it is?
    As I said before, Israel should call up its reservists for some quick retraining, start to lay minefields on its borders, start building up its defenses, and prepare for a hot war.
    It should declare, that if it wins, the populations of Gaza and the West Bank will be moved into Jordan, and the land taken as the spoils of war, and all enthusiasts for Islam inside its borders will either leave the religion or leave immediately.
    Then the backward Islamic scum will know the train of events they are setting in motion.
