The Sinai Peninsula is both a vacation paradise and a haven for jihadists and gangs of thugs. The military and the police are trying to regain control over the region. But a new class of haughty warlords and a resentful public mean the state's chances are

I look to the Sinai with anger, and a look back on what should could have been. Israel gave back the Sinai was part of the historic peace accord between Israel and Egypt - Nibel Prizes were given, and Jimmy Carter was a hero (until the election).Sadat who only wanted peace was murded by his own troops as they were against the peace accord.
Thirty plus years later, this piece of desert has turned into an Muslim extremist nightmare.This was not Murarak, this is the out of control extremists who want to choak the life out of Egypt.

And people are demanding Israel surrender even more land for more of this??

This situation isn't going to improve anytime soon with the Obama admin cutting off aid to Egypt.

I never thought I'd see the day when I would say that I am more proud of the present Egyptian administration, even though military, than I am of the present U.S. administration.

The Muslim Brotherhood is evil, not above using the grossest of deceptions, their years of training by the Nazis, terrorism, torture of their own people.

They rightly are being rooted out, and I hope they will rightly be dealt a death blow, although there's still a lot of kick in them, and they're spread far and wide -- especially well entrenched in the Obama administration and some of the top security posts in the U.S. government.

I feel this is tragic information. Islam is spreading all over the world with its terrorizing, gang-like methods.

If it was a good ideology, then it would not attract terrorists and the criminally violent.

Everyone hates when I mention the Biblical laws and statutes. However, everyone forgets that those Ten Commandments and the 613 statutes were designed to create better, civilized societies. And, in a way, they really did! The Jews and Gentiles were never molded into the people God truly desired because of the stiff-neck and rebellious nature of humanity. However, they did help in improving many societies, especially our Western societies.

The Civil War in the United States cost 625,000 men their lives because both sides believed whole-heartedly in what they were fighting for whether it was for or against slavery. However, neither side was raping nor brutalizing women and children as the Syrian civil war is doing right now.

During WWI and WWII Western societies united in eliminating the European threat and the annihilator of Jews and Catholic priests and other groups.

The Biblical laws and statutes united many societies so they could work together for the same cause.

As of yet—however, they will someday, according to Revelations, the ideologies of Islam have not been able to unite those Middle Eastern cultures into one force.

As long as they are unable to unite, we, Israel and all Western nations, will be a little safer, because all the Islamic cultures are, at present, preoccupied with killing each other.

Great point Portland. When they're busy killing each other, which they seem very happy to do, it means there's less chance they will try to kill us.

That is a great way of putting it. Violent criminals, the violently oriented, the ones who want things done by force, these are the ones attracted to Islam. Peace, getting along, the Golden Rule doesn't apply, unless it's to others in their own sect, and then there is still a lot left to be desired.

Beth, you are so aware of that which is and should not be. You commented .....The Muslim Brotherhood is evil, not above using the grossest of deceptions, their years of training by the Nazis, terrorism, torture of their own people.........................

I am absolutely convinced many of those highest in our government belong to the Muslim Brotherhood.

They would love to silence us because we are a barrier to More money....More Power.......,More........MORE....MORE!!!

I think it's important to remember, when we stop evil we are doing the evil doers the greatest service......preventing them from creating even more....More....MORE ...karma that must be paid in pain and tears.

The ones who shun the truth will be betrayed by the evil.
