Israel Shuts Cairo Embassy, Diplomats Flee Egypt

Ramin Mazaheri, Press TV, Cairo

“Since the announcement that Hosni Mubarak has stepped down, people have been celebrating across the world. But one group isn’t joining the party: Israel’s representatives in Cairo.

The embassy here has been shut down indefinitely, and the Israeli flag was removed from the building’s roof.

Press TV is a 24-hour English language global news network owned by Islamic Republic of Iran.

Mubarak warns of far worse to come

“‘They may be talking about democracy but they don’t know what they’re talking about and the result will be extremism and radical Islam,’”  (Andrew Bolt)

  1. The “guarantee” to maintain the peace treaty looks about as watertight as a fishing net.

  2. InshAllah Islam will be victorious…Egypt will rise to liberate Palestine from the filth of the zionists

  3. * Egypt will rise to liberate Palestine from the filth of the zionists

    Really Saif? As the line from Shrek might go: “allah, and what army?”

    Egypt isn’t even named as an Ezekiel 38 / 39 coalition member, apparently because God has already dealt with it:

    The burden of Egypt: “Behold, Yahweh rides on a swift cloud, and comes to Egypt. The idols of Egypt will tremble at his presence; and the heart of Egypt will melt in its midst.

    And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbor; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom.

    The spirit of Egypt will fail in its midst. I will destroy its counsel. They will seek the idols, the charmers, those who have familiar spirits, and the wizards.

    I will give over the Egyptians into the hand of a cruel lord. A fierce king will rule over them,” says the Lord, Yahweh of Armies.

    The waters will fail from the sea, and the river will be wasted and become dry.

    The rivers will become foul. The streams of Egypt will be diminished and dried up. The reeds and flags will wither away.

    In that day the Egyptians will be like women. They will tremble and fear because of the shaking of the hand of Yahweh of Armies, which he shakes over them.

    The land of Judah will become a terror to Egypt. Everyone to whom mention is made of it will be afraid, because of the plans of Yahweh of Armies, which he determines against it.

    In that day, there will be five cities in the land of Egypt that speak the language of Canaan, and swear to Yahweh of Armies. One will be called “The city of destruction.”

    In that day, there will be an altar to Yahweh in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar to Yahweh at its border.

    It will be for a sign and for a witness to Yahweh of Armies in the land of Egypt; for they will cry to Yahweh because of oppressors, and he will send them a savior and a defender, and he will deliver them.
    (Isaiah 19, in part)

    * Egypt will be brought to its knees, reduced to feebleness, and none of your boasting against Israel will be heard there again.

    What will become of you, Saif? On whom will you use your “saif”?

    Islam is doomed.

  4. “Serious Consequences” Prevented Bloodbath

    Mr Panetta was able to reach Field Marshal Tantawi shortly after one o’clock on Saturday morning, warning the Egyptian of “serious consequences” if any of the Israelis was killed.

    Egypt’s military rulers also ignored repeated calls from U.S. to stop 13-hour attack on Israeli embassy

    Remember when we said “Apparently Cairo isn’t screening out calls from Washington yet”? Well, it turns out they were. American officials got the same line as the Israelis, that Field Marshal Tantawi “could not be found.”

    It took the threat of “serious consequences” from Secretary of Defense Panetta — not to mention direct intervention by Obama himself — to get the Egyptians to lift a finger, once Tantawi was “located.” And there should still be “serious consequences.” “Egypt’s military rulers ignored pleas from US as mob attacked Israeli embassy,” by Adrian Blomfield for the Telegraph, September 11:

    With six Israeli security guards fending off an angry mob rampaging through the mission, Leon Panetta, the US defence secretary, tried for two hours to get hold of Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi, Egypt’s de facto head of state, to demand an immediate rescue operation.
    The New York Times reported that the entire attack lasted 13 hours. The generals took their time.
