Israel to pay for 10 Plagues?

Egyptian journalist demands that his government sue Jewish state for heavenly punishments described in Exodus

Bible study meets modern litigiousness in a story that may one day yield a riveting courtroom drama.

Ahmad al-Gamal, an Egyptian columnist for Egyptian daily Al-Yawm Al-Sabi, advocated in the newspaper on March 11 that Egypt sue the State of Israel for damages caused by the 10 Biblical plagues,

“We want compensation for the plagues that were inflicted upon [us] as a result of the curses that the Jews’ ancient forefathers [cast] upon our ancient forefathers, who did not deserve to pay for the mistake that Egypt’s ruler at the time, Pharaoh, committed,” the cranky journalist wrote, according to a translation provided by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

Moses didn’t curse the Arabs for the 430 years of servitude. Their only claim to a connection with the Copts is through Hagar, Ishmael’s mother.

Can you sue God?

Now that’s funny! And will He answer?

The ancient Egyptians were not Arabs.

And the Jews owe modern Egypt nothing on account of what happened thousands of years ago.

If it was left up to the Hebrews they would still be slaves in Egypt. Sue the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob.

They should quit while they’re ahead. The next round of plagues might include obamacare.

So this Journalist specifies that God exists, He listens to pleadings from (at least) Jews, answers with Divine power, and has punished those contrary to His will.

My goodness, what would Allah say?

Even so, Arabs have no standing.

If I did sue God, I would get a good Jewish lawyer.

Some of the reasons Egypt is still stuck in the Biblical period in terms of Economy and Progress are as follows:

1) Islam
2) Chaotic/Anachronistic laws and rules
3) Over population
4) Military dictatorships
4) Inability to think rationally

If the Egyptians would stop reverting to stupid claims against the Israelis (Israelites) and backward thinking, they MIGHT progress into the 17th Century. As it is right now, they can't seem to remove their noses from their behinds. Claims that sharks seen off the Sinai resort coasts were MOSSAD agents or asking for reparations from the Exodus only reinforces the claim that Egypt is one of the most f***ked up countries on the planet.

I guess they still haven’t learned from His discipline.

Sounds like the guy should eliminate the middle men and demand his government sue God...

The ancient Egyptians were not Arabs.

Worse, their present (Coptic) descendants are currently being oppressed BY A-rabs.

Must be listening to Obama wants reparations from the Jews and God. Soon the world will hear God’s answer = more plagues rain down on Egypt. What do you expect from a 7th Century believer of Islamic Lunacy!
