Egypt Protests as Arab World Watches


The BBC, CNN, and FOX News chose not to carry this news. But, Al Jazeera puts the Egyptian protest against terror as their lead story.

1,000 Egyptians chanted “We will not be terrorized!”

Egyptian workers vowed that they would not be terroriszed today as over 1,000 demonstrators protested in Shaem el-Sheikh:


“There is no God but God and terrorism is the enemy of God,” chanted the Egyptian protesters, including hotel chefs, technicians and road sweepers, as they marched along the main road of Sharm el-Sheikh, hit by three bombs on Saturday.

“The feeling is very sad and very angry. We are not going to be scared by the bombers,” said Sherif Saba, an Egyptian investor in the diving and beach resort.

Protesters marched into the night, waving Egyptian flags and holding aloft signs in Arabic, English, Spanish, Italian and Russian.

Egyptians working in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh attend a protest in Sharm el-Sheikh in Egypt on Sunday.

Al Jazeera also reported the protests as front page news:

“People are against those who did this. They have no religion and are not from us, neither as bedouin or Egyptians. It’s a cowardly act,” said Saleh Mohamed, a south Sinai bedouin wearing flowing robes and a lilac headscarf.

The Bahrain Tribune is now reporting on the protest as well.
The Jordan Times mentions the Anti-terror protests.

More than 1,000 Egyptian hotel workers, bedouin sheikhs and foreign dive school instructors marched through Sharm el-Sheikh on Sunday to condemn bombs which killed 88 in the Red Sea resort.
