Egypt: Protesters Attack Israeli Embassy (Updated)

This just in from Israeli National News:

Egypt: Protesters Tear Down Embassy Wall

Just a short while after it was put up, hundreds of Egyptian protesters tore down on Friday the security wall that had recently been put up near the entrance of the Israeli Embassy in Cairo.The Associated Press reported that Egyptian security forces did not intervene as crowds climbed the embassy security wall, pummeled it with hammers and tore away large sections of the barrier.

Israel's Channel 10 News reported that after bringing down the wall, the protesters managed to overcome all the heavy security around the 21-storey building which houses the Israeli Embassy and were even able to climb onto the floor on which the embassy is located.

The Associated Press reported that just before midnight local time, 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.

An Israeli official confirmed in a conversation with AP the embassy had been broken into, saying it appeared the group reached a waiting room on the lower floor. IDF Army Radio reported that there were no embassy employees in the building at the time of the break-in.

There was recently an unconfirmed report that a protester had fired at the embassy building. The same day, a Muslim Brotherhood cleric called on Egyptians to murder all Israelis in the country.

Aren't we being told that the Muslim Brotherhood is a moderate group? Perhaps not.

The situation remains volatile in the Epicenter. Every day we see some combination of missiles launched, terrorist attacks, demonstrations, shootings, or some other form of violence in or around Israel. In this powder keg, with tensions at high levels, it won't take much to trigger an unstoppable cascade of violence leading to the expected battles.

Stay tuned.

Hello Scott and Caver

Every Friday after prayers it all fires up again; but now the Mulluh's sp? have Twitter, Facebook, Blackberries and Raspberriessss they can stoke the coals any day of the week.

It's way past simmer, one morning soon, we will wake up and poof! Damascus will be no more and Bob's yer Uncle. God willing we will be up and out of here; I cannot bear the thought of all the carnage. :(

Scott, will this be one MSM news? If it's not...

Scott said...

I'll be shocked if the MSM carries this in any substantial way - its not in keeping with their agenda, and it conflicts with everything they have tried to tell us about the "uprisings' and more specifically the Muslim Brotherhood..The MSM is loathe to cover anything that doesn't fir with "the agenda"

Oh ok. I think in Canada the media is more "liberal". Sometimes when hamas breaks the ceasefire it shows up on ctv news. Yesterday they mentioned how gadafi's weapons were being sold on the black market and to "groups associated with al Qaeda". It seems like they're more open and transparent with the media up here.

Hello Dylan

"It seems like they're more open and transparent with the media up here".

I saw this last night, so paid particular attention to our news 'over here'. Yes, they have covered the destruction of the security wall; not a fleeting glimpse but quite a long video of it.
However it may be suiting them as the dangers we face today since 9/11 have been discussed a couple of days ago by Tony Blair, who said things were basically MUCH worse than we ever thought.

Whereas yesterday David Cameron said things were better?
I am not a fan of Tony Blair, but in my opinion he was spot on and David Cameron has blinkers on.

God bless
