EGYPT-UNREST-SINAI-BOMB

The Egyptian authorities have stated that the wave of Muslim terror attacks are linked to the Muslim Brotherhood and the Brotherhood’s official Twitter account certainly sounds like it as it celebrates the murder of three Korean tourists.

The Korean tour bus that was bombed originated from Egypt and was coming from a Greek Orthodox monastery but headed into Israel. The Twitter link goes to a Brotherhood article ridiculing attempts by the Egyptian government to encourage tourism demonstrating the motivational linkage between the Muslim Brotherhood and the terrorists.

Security sources in Egypt say that the bomb was meant to explode at the crossing between Israel and Egypt which may explain the Muslim Brotherhood’s Zionist crack. The MB was reacting prematurely to the attack that was supposed to happen, rather than the one that actually did happen.

The bomb may have gone off earlier because the driver, who was killed in the explosion, had taken a detour and stopped off at a coffee shop.

Israel attempted to offer aid, but its ambulances were refused access.

An explosion ripped through a tourist bus near a border crossing between Egypt and Israel in the Sinai Peninsula, killing at least three South Koreans and the Egyptian driver, security officials said.

The security officials said the source of the explosion was not clear, but they believe it was either a car bomb or a roadside bomb that was detonated by remote control.

Rescue workers found three bodies at the scene of the attack and the badly burnt remains of one or possibly two other people, said Khaled Abu Hashem, the head of ambulance services in southern Sinai.

Almost all 33 passengers on the bus were wounded by the explosion, with 12 suffering serious injuries. The wounded were being treated in hospitals in Taba and the coastal resort towns of Nuweiba and Sharm al-Sheikh to the south on the Red Sea’s Gulf of Suez.

The security officials said the bus had arrived at the Taba crossing from the ancient Greek Orthodox monastery of St. Catherine’s in central Sinai. The journey, they said, originated in Cairo, Egypt’s capital.

But simply crossing into Israel makes them Zionists according to the Muslim Brotherhood.

      Looks like I have you thinking. Good.

    Shame on you MB, you are truly a terrorist group, and hopefully the whole world realized that

      You might want to reflect on this: you are now certain that the Muslim Brotherhood is a terrorist group, and want to spread that word. As evidence, what do you actually have? 1. Daniel characterized the tweet as a ‘celebration.’ But there are two problems with this. One, there was no celebratory language in the tweet itself – at least, not that I could find. I’m guessing you don’t speak Arabic, and are accepting Daniel’s characterization. And, second, if the tweet were celebratory – obnoxiously so, cursing the victims, praising the perpetrators, etc – that would show that the MB had bad taste, questionable morals, and give us a sound reason to dislike it – but it would not show the MB to be terrorist, and that’s the conclusion you drew. 2. Daniel asserts that there’s something sinister about the wording of the tweet that implies prior knowledge of the intended bombing. But, again, how does Daniel actually support this? Daniel is apparently relying on your ignorance of language, culture, and geography to make innuendo sound reasonable. First, I don’t know if you’ve been to the Sinai, but I have, and there’s really only one place that a northbound tourist bus on the east coast of the Sinai could be heading. The dive sites in the Sinai, such as Sharm al Sheikh and Taba, are reached by coastal highways traveling down either side of the peninsula. When a bus leaves one of these towns, it’s either heading back to the Suez Canal to cross into Egypt proper, or it’s going to Israel. Given the number of tourists that come from Israel to dive in the Sinai, referring to the people on a northbound bus as “Zionist tourists” doesn’t imply that the authors of the text knew the bomb was intended to go off at a border crossing; it implies that the bus was traveling to Israel.

      If you are at heart an honest person, you need to be very careful when presented with innuendo that reinforces what you want to hear.

    These perfect cowards love to frame themselves as defenders when they are nothing but murderers. They need to be eradicated from the face of the earth.

  • truebearing

    Obama’s boys, at it again. Maybe Obama will send them some more money so their next attack will be more successful.

  • SoCalMike

    The bombs were probably paid for by American and European taxpayers.
    The people in free countries don’t control the foreign policies of their pwn government.

    It is a known fact that ِِِِArabs call all citizens of Israel “Zionists”! and the Arabic tweet was reporting the news, MB condemned this particular incident and all previous ones, accusing authorities of doing whatever necessary to keep them out of power! and pull off their stupid Coup!

  • herb benty

    Those Koreans were just looking at the ancient archeology sites. The “cup of Islamic evil is full” Oh Lord God Almighty, Amen.

    Daniel,
    The victims are identified as Zionist tourists, but nothing about the wording suggests approval or celebration – at least, not that I can tell. My Arabic is serviceable but not fluent – what was it that you picked up on that led you to select ‘celebrates’ as the most accurate description of this tweet?
