Egyptians break into Israel Embassy in Cairo
AP via SFGate ^ | 9/9/11 | AYA BATRAWY, Associated Press

Posted on 09/09/2011 4:24:45 PM PDT by SmithL

A group of about 30 protesters broke into the Israeli Embassy in Cairo Friday and dumped hundreds of documents out of the windows after a day of demonstrations outside the building in which crowds swinging sledge hammers and using their bare hands tore apart the embassy's security wall.

Hundreds of protesters converged on the embassy throughout the afternoon and into the night, tearing down large sections of the graffiti-covered security wall outside the 21-story building housing the embassy. Egyptian security forces made no attempt for hours to intervene.

Just before midnight, a group of protesters reached a room on one of the embassy's lower floors at the top of the building and began dumping Hebrew-language documents from the windows, said an Egyptian security official who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

Same way they’ve treated both Christian and Jewish shrines, holy places and biblical historical sites everywhere.
But hey they’re the religion of peace.

I fear we may be too late (my personal opinion). Time will tell of course, but if these events against Israel pick up steam over the next 4-6 months, we could be in for a whole new world.

The guy was raised by Muslims and Communists, and has comfortably settled into those ideologies his entire adult life. It was apparent to ANYONE who bothered to pay attention back in 2008. He's rooting AGAINST Israel, against capitalism, against freedom, etc., etc., etc. The dude is playing for the other team!

0bama is a communist who is actively working with the communist-american politburo to destroy the U.S. His ideological roots are in the communist movement, just the same as the American left. Just try and speak out against them, and their “Anti-Facists” AKA “Antifas” will attack you physically with violence.

Israeli Defense Minster Ehud Barak said in a statement that he also spoke with his American counterpart, Leon Panetta, and appealed to him to do what he could to protect the embassy.

"I fear we may be too late (my personal opinion). Time will tell of course, but if these events against Israel pick up steam over the next 4-6 months, we could be in for a whole new world."

Yes, Obama is really sewing dragons teeth all over the world. He has aided the Islamists all across North Africa and what is happening in Egypt was widely predicted in conservative circles. Obama has helped run cover for the Iran nuclear program. As soon as US troops are drawn down to a token in Iraq, that counterweight will be gone. The stage is set for an explosion within the next six month and Obama will light the fuse if things turn further against him domestically.

I am assuming (and hoping & praying) that all Israeli personnel had vacated and left the embassy, perhaps even months ago.

That being said, I would expect that Bibi & his key staff as well as the IDF are looking at this with somewhat bemusement. But I have no doubt that Israel has already passed the word along to the Egyptian "rebels", that any indication of attacks or hostilities by the rebels against Israel, that Israel will make those screaming, motley rebel rabble yearn for the days of good ol' Mubarak.

An attack on the Israeli embassy IS an attack on Israel, and if they’re looking at this sh!t with bemusement, they are fookin idiotas.

BTW, Erdogan says he’s sending Turkish warships along with the next gaza smuggling flotilla to prevent attacks by Israel like the last time in which 8 activists were killed in a botched raid by IDF commandos.

Not quite correct. The fertilizer will hit the ventilator when one of those Arab Spring governments invades our embassy and holds our diplomats hostage. Then the resemblance to Carter will be complete.

Point well taken! Well in that case, we will see what Bibi & the Israelis do about this. My bet is that they will do nothing other to protest this through "diplomatic channels" which they have already done with Panetta (I believe it was him) and you can rest assured that 0dumb0/Panetta/Hitlary/Holder, etc will do nothing. And by default, Israel will do nothing for this attack & invasion of their embassy. Score another one for the muzzies against the West.

“And all the inhabitants of Egypt shall know that I am the LORD, because they have been a staff of reed to the house of Israel.

“When they took hold of thee by thy hand, thou didst break, and rend all their shoulder: and when they leaned upon thee, thou brakest, and madest all their loins to be at a stand.

“Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will bring a sword upon thee, and cut off man and beast out of thee.

“And the land of Egypt shall be desolate and waste; and they shall know that I am the LORD: because he hath said, The river is mine, and I have made it.

“Behold, therefore I am against thee, and against thy rivers, and I will make the land of Egypt utterly waste and desolate, from the tower of Syene even unto the border of Ethiopia.

“No foot of man shall pass through it, nor foot of beast shall pass through it, neither shall it be inhabited forty years.

Yes, nice to have the word of the one you can trust.
