First thing that popped into my head too.
Let's be clear. This happened in Islamic Egypt.
Israel is in the Middle East too, and it is quite safe there so long as you don't show up wearing a bomb belt.

Islam had nothing to do with this, lack of law and order

That area is a smuggling corridor and going there
without any idea of who is around is shockingly dumb.

He must have believed all the hype about the piece-loving religion of piece.
Vikings used to sack, rape and pillage all over Europe. Then they became Christians and stopped. Bedouins are devout Muslims, and also murder, sack, rape and pillage whenever the opportunity presents.
Gotta be the Jews’ fault. Thanks Eleutheria5.
You do realise the murder rate here is higher than than all middle eastern countries. The highest are south american,eastern european and southern and central african countries. I have visited Egypt, to see the pyramids, and they had nice resorts along the red sea aswell.
