#Flagman is becoming the #1 ranking trend on Twitter as we speak and radio Israel hacked and playing Quran.....things will get very tough soon i guess
You were listening to the Arab channel in Israel radio.

As for the Israel-Egyptian relations, guess who showed up for Iftar hosted by the Israeli president - an Egyptian diplomat .

I see that you don't consider eating Humble pie Haram during Ramadan.

Your statement of "Israel days in Egypt is over" was a bit premature, wasn't it ?
It is over in a the sense of "We are not Mubrarak era anymore".......if Israel wants to deal with Egypt, they have to deal with us now as an entire nation.....and take it a word from me, any Egyptian official who would try to play games on the nation and have any kind of agreements with Israel without prior approval from the nation will be out of his position whatever he is....even if he's the president....we rule our own country not the muppets the west keep implanting.

I'm all for the joint peace.....but we're NO LONGER MUPPETS of the west nor Israel.

Israel should refrain immediately from violating human rights, attacking Palestinians, expanding more than what it is and accept the fact of a "Palestinian State"

Which general are you saying "we rule" ? Egypt is still ruled by army.

Egypt was not a Muppet - the Muppets managed to transform chaos to success, not the other way round.

Army is acting as a ruler but it's the people in the streets who are actually deciding now, even SCAF won't go against the nation will and there's so many examples that they comply to what people say.

The mobs don't rule. can't rule. they can only lead to chaos.

Egypt is not a democracy yet.

Re: Egypt "Jan 25 - Day of revolution" [Update: Mubarak resigns]

It's all getting a bit off topic, kids. Neither Egyptian nor Israeli sympathisers have much authority when it comes to telling their neighbour how to run their affairs. This thread is turning into another 'Israel / Palestine' drag. Please let's not allow that to happen ...merci danke toda shukran thanks...

Actually that was quite a creative answer, I liked that. Creativity often comes from chaos and creativity, in turn, leads to success. The world needs more creative and fewer destructive minds; those who can see answers in the rubble and dust, those who can turn fears into hopes and aspirations.

I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

T.S Eliot.

I suppose that chaos is often a matter of perspective. Ghaddafi might say that success has been turned into chaos in Libya right now.

One person's chaos is another person's success and vice versa.

Ok, the Israel/Palestine thread has sucked up the appropriate posts from this thread. Uncle Max has a bulging vein on his forehead so...let's keep it crystal please.

Re: Egypt "Jan 25 - Day of revolution" [Update: Mubarak resigns]

Egypt agrees that the terrorists were Gazans and are also an Egyptian problem. From Egypt's Al Ahram:

"We shared information with Israel to the effect that these militants are only pockets of a radical militant group in Gaza; and I am not talking about Hamas," said another Egyptian official. "We had been sharing concern about the situation in Sinai and the Israelis know very well through the consultations of the past few days that this situation is [just as much] a reason for our concern as it is for theirs," he added."

Just to put the records straight, if you look at the Arab World of the past 50 years, you cannot see many state leaders "implanted" by the West. An exception was the Hashemites. The Saudi were KEPT in power by the West but not implanted. The dynasty in Morocco was not implanted but made their way against France. And in your country, Nasr, Sadat and Mubarak were not implanted either. The three chaps of course had a clear "democracy-deficit" . Whomever will become president on the Nile will have to find ways to get along with Israel. To use common sense and realism does not mean to be a "muppet" of anybody.

Why do you speak about the "mobs" ? Opinion polls on the road are a major factor in established democracies. And while Egypt indeed is not yet a democracy, things look quite good, and the president-ad-interim to all appearances is not trying to grasp power.

Just for the info #Flagman name is Mustapha Kamel and he's an example of an average Egyptian young who didn't care about his life to just bring a flag down.....do you think the entire Israeli army courage combind can stand against this single man.....obviously not.

As Castro said, Egyptians have enough courage, heart, will and ready to die for their own country.....that's a weapon that Israel definitely doesn't have.....if Israel decided war......they have to fight +20 millions of the same kind of courage if not more.....the only thing i would think of is to nuke us but this means nuke them too as we are so close.
A) And what is the profession and what are the hobbies of the young man ? I do not think he did not care about his life. Stuntmen, artists etc are people who do risky actions but in reality are more careful than many other people

B) Relax. Israel does not have the slightest intention to attack Egypt

Re: Egypt "Jan 25 - Day of revolution" [Update: Mubarak resigns]

Quote "Egypt is on high alert after an attack by hundreds of protesters on the Israeli embassy in Cairo left three people dead and hundreds injured. "

I do not hear anything about mobs in Israel attacking the Egyptian embassy?

I guess that shows the difference between a civilised country & 3rd/4th world countries?

I'm not with this act, but i don't blame the people if SCAF / Govt didn't do anything whatsoever regardless of the protests happening for weeks

One comment, who said Israel is a "civilised country", is it cause they're bombing with F-16 and American weapons they are civilized and the people who spontaneously refuse their oppression become 3rd/4th /5th countries.???

You were calling the flag burner a courageous man, What made you change your mind ?

As for attacking embassies for dodgy reasons, ask Danish/U.S diplomats for their views about Arab/Muslim rage.

It's the response to the Israeli arrogance refusing to apologize in addition to SCAF our Govt failure to take any action or offer the nation any solutions, Israeli killed 6 soldiers and this is post revolution era, so Egypt's response is totally different and Israelis had to get this message....Netanyaho's & Levni's speech today shows well that Israel got the message

I'm not with the act cause i believe it breaches the law but still everyone who took action is definitely a HERO, i'm not changing and won't change ever my mind.

Israel simply have to understand 1 thing, what is between us is a paper, but if they keep crossing the line, this paper is void and they will have to face the nation and not government

At least we both agree your hero is a criminal.

As for Israel breaching the contract - A civilised country would wait for the investigation about the terrorist attack from Sinai. Should Egypt decide to cancel the peace treaty Mubarak's time in office will be remembered as a golden era. shame.
