[3 car bomb] Blasts rock Egypt's Sharm El-Sheikh resort
Reuters ^

Posted on 07/22/2005 3:43:44 PM PDT by jmc1969

CAIRO (Reuters) - An explosion shook the Egyptian Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh on Saturday, starting a fire and sending a cloud of smoke up over the town, a resident said.

The explosion, audible more than one km (half a mile) away, appeared to take place in a market area which includes shops popular with tourists, said the resident, who asked not to be named.

Too much hummus. Gas explosion. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

It's probably a terrorist attack. If I'm not mistaken, lot's of Jewish vacationers stay at that resort.

very scary. However, I am amazed that so many Westerners still vacation in Egypt. You couldn't pay me enough money to set foot in a Muslim country. Why do people take such a risk these days? It's not like there aren't lovely beaches elsewhere in the world.

And the fact that muzzies leave 'em in droves ought to tell us something, too.

Don't even want to have a layover in one, although it would be a good occasion to piss on it.

Hugh Hewitt believes there are only a dozen or so fanatical Islamists...

Is that the Hyatt? A lot of Brits go there according to the reviews on the internet...

Tourist and camp sites were attacked before there.

Rmember the French charter plane that crashed into the sea there when Tony Blair was visiting? Ever solved?

Time to put more pressure on Israel. They obviously aren't making enough concessions. /sarcasm

Re#9 He is in a bit of denial on the numbers. He does have some good guests and earlier played Donald Trump's testimony to Congress on the UN construction/bid. It was hilarious...

We were in Sharm el Sheik in the 80's. There was a UN peacekeeping force there at the time. Don't know if it is still there.

Per Fox:
"The hotel was completely burned down, destroyed," said Amal Mustafa, 28, an Egyptian who was visiting with her family and who drove by the Ghazala Gardens.
Khaled Sakran, a resident, said he saw the first blast from the Old Market. "I saw the fire in the sky," he said. "Right after, I saw a light in the sky and heard another explosion, coming from Naama Bay." He said he believed there was also a third explosion.

Fire in the sky? hmmm

I know, but many they shot down a plane and it just happened to hit a hotel?

Per MSNBC: Multiple blasts rock Egyptian resort town; many casualties feared.

The MSM never says many causalties feared. The last time that kind of wording was used was...9/11. They always say "no indication at this time" and always wait for the police. I may be wrong, but this sounds serious.

Wasn't there an explosion there a couple of years ago?

Also, I think I remember hearing that Tony Blair vacations there sometimes.

I could never be a terr. All my primitive lifestyle fantasies involve Latin American beach towns, outdoor cafes, and too much time on my hands.

Sinai? These guys are nuts.
