79% of Egyptians Would Not Allow Jews to Return to Egypt


Peace… in our time.

A poll in Akhbar El-Youm, Egypt’s most widely circulated state owned newspaper, asked readers whether they would agree with the idea of the Egyptian Jews who had been expelled from Egypt returning to the country. 79% percent stated that they disagree. 18% said that they agree. And 3% had no opinion.

That’s not surprising as in a 2011 poll, only 2% of Egyptians had a positive view of Jews.

Before the war, Egypt had an estimated 60,000 to 100,000 Jews. By 1976 that number had fallen to 200. Between then thousands of Jews were arrested, locked up or deported. Sustained persecution wiped out the Jewish population of Egypt.

The same phenomenon has been taking place, at a slower rate, with Christians in Egypt. Meanwhile the EU will be giving Egypt $6.5 dollars and Obama will be giving Egypt a whole bunch of F16s and Abrams tanks.

    Egypt is rife with Jew hatred and the Muslim Brotherhood Mafia wants to keep it like that. Moreover, the Muslim/Arab world is endemic to Jew hatred and this is nothing new, regardless of the fabrications to the contrary. The fact that millions upon millions Jews fled their lands, with nary the clothes on their backs, says it all. Nothing has changed.

    100% of Jews that would even consider moving to that (or any) islamic hell hole endorsed by the US President Stinky (bo) would deserve what the 79% would dish out.

    this is why the scriptures have always told Israel to never – NEVER – trust Egypt. It truly is Egypts loss and demise. (by the way there is something missing in the amount the EU will be giving Egypt "$6.5 dollars" is it millions or billions? Really doesn't matter because bottom-line, the Brotherhood shouldn't be getting anything.
