More of the fetid, rotten fruit of the "islamic spring" in Egypt. Thirty years after a wonderful peace accord with Israel, America's longtime onetime ally is ousted and replaced with imperial Islam -- with Obama's blessing.
Muslims are vowing a million man march against the Jews, and a demand that that the Israeli ambassador be expelled.
In an extraordinary act of courage, Egyptian churches announced on Thursday their rejection of a protest scheduled for next Friday to demand the expulsion of the Israeli ambassador to Cairo. I say courage because the Coptic Christians in Egypt have been subjected to presecution, violence, murder, church burnings and the kidnapping of their wives and daughters. They will pay for their vocal stand against Islamic supremacism.
The anti-religion screams for blood; a true religion openly rejects the evil racism and hate and stands up for the right and the righteous, despite the terrible consequences of defying Isalmic supremacism.
Egyptians Pledge Anti-Israel ‘Million Man’ March The Blaze, August 24
While anti-Israel activists have been demonstrating outside Israel’s embassy in Cairo for the fifth day in a row, Egyptian daily al-Youm al-Saba’a reported Wednesday that protest organizers are now calling for “a million-man protest” to take place outside the embassy on Friday.
Using Facebook and other social media tools, organizers allege the demonstrations aim is to forcibly remove Israel’s ambassador to Egypt and close the Israeli embassy altogether.
Protesters reportedly chant “expell the ambassador immediately.” Some demonstrators have even gathered outside the ambassador’s Cairo residence and called on local residents to join them in order to “force the ambassador to leave Egypt.”
Israel National News reports:
Anti-Israel protests erupted in Cairo last weekend following reports that at least three Egyptian security officers were inadvertantly killed during a firefight between IDF forces and the terrorists who perpetrated the deadly terror attack near Eilat that left eight Israeli civilians dead last Thursday.
The protesters burnt Israeli flags and threw fire crackers at the embassy building in hopes of igniting the Israeli flag at the embassy. An Egyptian youth later climbed the building and took the Israeli flag down.
The border-fire incident has stirred a diplomatic crisis between Jerusalem and Cairo. Egypt’s cabinet said Sunday an Israeli statement expressing regret for the border deaths was not enough, but it stopped short of recalling its Tel Aviv envoy. Israel has determined at least three of the terrorists involved in last Thursday’s attacks originated in the Sinai, contrary to previous Egyptian claims Sinai terrorists were not involved in the incident.
Protesters are allegedly demanding the peace treaty between Israel and Egypt be altered, particularly with regard to the military presence in the Sinai, which protestors want completely abolished. But, as INN notes, the re- or demilitarization of Sinai be a fatal blow to the 1979 Camp David Accords, and could result in open armed conflict between the two nations.
With social networking tools having been successful in organizing anti-Israel initiatives in the past, one wonders how many anti-Israel demonstrators will turn up to Friday’s million man march.

Egyptian churches reject call for massive anti-Israel protest Fri 26 Aug 2011
Egyptian churches announced on Thursday their rejection of a protest scheduled for next Friday to demand the expulsion of the Israeli ambassador to Cairo.
A number of activists who have been staging a sit-in in front of the Israeli Embassy called Tuesday for a million-strong demonstration to take place this Friday to demand the removal of the Israeli ambassador, a move that would likely further strain relations between Cairo and Tel Aviv.
On 18 August, six Egyptian military and security personnel were killed by Israeli gunfire at the border between Egypt and Israel.
The Coptic Church called for political groups and coalitions to leave the issue to the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) and the government. It urged youths to cooperate with the military junta so that they do not become separated from their political leaders, as was the case under the former regime.
The Catholic Church spokesman Rafiq Greish said that youth should not interfere in what should be done with the Israeli ambassador and should leave the SCAF to deal with the matter.
Greish ruled out any decision by the church to ban the youth from participating in Friday’s protest. The Catholic Church believes in the freedom of speech and has never directed its followers to take a certain political action, Greish said.
The Maspiro Youth Union said it would hold a protest in Tahrir Square, not in front of the Israeli Embassy or the house of the Israeli ambassador, as some have called for. It said, in a statement, it will call for a review of the Camp David Accords, particularly its provisions that determine the number of Egyptian military troops allowed in Sinai. The union stressed, however, that determining the status of diplomatic relations should be left to the Foreign Ministry.
Haitham Kameel, a member of Copts Without Restrictions, said that the group would also participate in the Israeli Embassy protest along with other political forces.
