    CAIRO, (PIC)-- Dozens of Egyptian citizens demonstrated in front of the Israeli embassy in Cairo on Wednesday demanding an end to their country's relations with Israel and to exporting gas to it.

    The rally was organized only hours after unknown persons blasted the pipeline in El-Arish that carries Egyptian gas to Israel and Jordan for the second time in three months.

    The demonstrators chanted the people want an end to normalization with and an end to natural gas exports to Israel.

    A lot of that aid was to prop up the Mubarak dictatorship in Egypt. They don't need that anymore.

    Once Qadaffi gets his country back he can send them some oil money.

    You don't think that there will be bribes, er aid, made available to the next regime, so long as it is willing to go along?

    Egypt has been paid very well for the last 35 years to make nice with Israel. With the shape of Egypts economy, they can't afford to pass up that aid

    We've been training their military on US posts in the USA since I went through basic in the 70s.

    When my pay was $250 month their's was at least a couple thousand, and we helped pay it.
