A number of political activists have called for a million man protest outside the Israeli embassy in Cairo next Friday. The call came out on Tuesday, setting the aim of the protest will be to demand the expelling of the Israeli ambassador in Cairo and the withdrawal of the Egyptian ambassador in Tel Aviv.

 This comes amid declining numbers at the protest and sit-in outside the Israeli embassy in Giza.

 Egyptian activists have been holding a sit-in in front of the embassy in Giza for five days in a row.

 Another sit-in outside the residence of the Israeli ambassador in the Maadi suburb of Cairo continues amid calls for escalating pressure on the diplomat to leave the country.

 The Israeli killing of five Egyptian soldiers in Sinai last week has spurred thousands to protest against the presence of Israeli diplomatic missions in Egypt.

Arab spring?
From day one of the early demonstration in Tahrir square I suspected that Iran and Al Keida are behind the "egyptian struggle for democracy".The way egypt handles the crisis with Israel proves I was right.

Agitation and incitement against Israel is the best way to avoid the real problems A.R. of Egypt must solve.Egypt sinks into chaos, So much needs to be done in Egypt but instead you prefer a stupid demonstration to sasisfy your pride?

A failed revolution.

Stupidety
The Egyptian revolution can't afford to create unnecessary enemies. This misdirected march is a step in the wrong direction that could jeopardize Egypt's future. Time now to engage in building and stop destructing. Please stop this juvenile march!!!!
