It's Happening Again: At Least 25 Killed in Sharm el Sheikh blasts

FYI-Unfortunately, it appears at this early stage that some affiliated al-Qaeda group has struck the resort area of Sharm el Sheikh again-there will be lots of tourists there. (sigh) This madness seems never-ending....

It would appear that the Movenpick hotel, one of the nicest properties in that area, as well as another 4 star hotel were targeted-one hotel front was completely blown away-as well as the Old Market area-this was clearly targeting westerners.

PS: reading international press reviews sometimes broaden one's mind...

Exactly!

Only watching Fox news and reading USA today won't get us any where!

While alQaeda are a bunch of ugly killers, the only group who will seem to benefit from hitting the Egyptian economy is the Israelies.

Egypt is the most popular destination in the mideast by a million miles, besides Dubai for Europeans, and Israel is not so happy about that.

By the way, Israel is a beautiful country and I have nothing against it.
