Hundreds of angry protesters march on Wednesday evening from Talaat Harb Square in downtown Cairo heading towards the ministry of foreign affairs near Tahrir Square to condemn the ongoing brutal attacks on the Gaza Strip by the Israeli forces.

Protesters chanted “Gaza Gaza, You’re the pride,“ “Arab states are cowardly,” “Palestinian blood is our blood,” as they carried Palestinian flags.

Protesters are demanding Egypt cut diplomatic ties with Israel and close down the Israeli embassy in Cairo.

A number of Egyptian political forces including the National Front for Justice and Democracy and Hamdeen Sabbahi's Popular Current have called for the protest.

Nasserists, the Revolutionary Socialists and other Palestine solidarity activists took part in the spirited rally.

On Wednesday night, president Mohamed Morsi recalled Egypt’s envoy in Israel following the Israeli attack that killed at least seven Palestinians, including Hamas leading figure Ahmed Al-Jaabari.

Time to act
IF a foreign entity occupied the heart of Europe you would expect the European states to not recognise it and unify their resources to declare War on it. The rulers of the Muslim world who claim to love Palestine have shown they are useless appeasers of the Occupiers of Palestine. The people want more that just words but action

Time to act properly
Egypt need to act carefully.To Counter Israel threat is establishing guerrilla war and even longtime war because Israel is too strong.Egypt and Arab countries don't enggage in full scale war with Israel because they are too strong and supported by strong nations.Just assist Palestnian secretly with weaponary technologies and do like counter US in Iraq and Afghanistan.By years Israel economy will much suffer,could be worse than US got.
