CAIRO (AP) — A roadside bomb near Egypt’s second largest city Alexandria killed a bystander and injured two others on Tuesday, while authorities defused two more explosives at Cairo International Airport, officials said.
The latest reports are part of recent spike in small bombs being planted around Egypt. Many of the devices have been so-called flash-bang grenades, designed to sow panic but cause minimal damage or casualties. The larger and deadlier bombs have been targeted almost exclusively at members of the Egyptian police and army.

Anti-Jewish sentiment is growing so quickly on a major California university campus it caused one student to gleefully proclaim that “Hamas & Sharia law” have taken over.
It all began Thursday when members of a Jewish fraternity, Alpha Epsilon Pi, walked out of a University of California-Davis student Senate vote on a bill that called for divestment in “corporations that aid in the Israeli occupation of Palestine and illegal settlements in Palestinian territories, violating both international humanitarian law and international human rights.”
(Robert Spencer’s analysis at link. It might also be pointed out that the OIC has legally defined terrorism to not include jihad, as jihad is an obligation to muslims. Therefore, on the one hand, milim orgs. know that we think of jihad as terror, so they can condemn terror, which to them means defending ourselves against jihad, but when we openly link the two they bristle. This is more revealing and important than it would appear without this explanation)
Controversy over cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed hit home in Seattle recently, culminating in a protest outside of southend refugee service provider on Friday.
A group of Somali Americans gathered outside the Refugee Women’s Alliance (ReWA) on Martin Luther King, Jr. Way to demand the resignation of a teacher who showed the cartoons to her teenage students on the day after the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris.
“We’re not gonna be silent when it’s something that’s not right,” said Hassan Aden, who was one of between 15 to 20 people who attended the protest. “We’re trying to show that we’re not happy with what she did.”
Seven Islamic State terrorists were no match for an elderly man hell-bent on avenging the execution of his son at the hands of the terrorist organization.
When Basil Ramadan, reportedly in his 60s, approached an ISIS checkpoint in Tikrit, about 120 miles northwest of Baghdad, he gunned down the terrorists manning the facility, according to the Daily Mail.
Ramadan managed to take out seven using an AK-47 before he himself was shot and killed.
His 18-year-old son, Ahmed Basil Ramadan, was one of eight Iraqi police officers forced to appear in an Islamic State propaganda video before being executed for spying on the militant organization in January.
