    CAIRO (AP) — An Egyptian security official says a group of about 30 protesters have broken into an apartment one floor below the Israeli Embassy in a high-rise building in Cairo and are dumping hundreds of Hebrew documents off the balcony.

    Hundreds of protesters have been converging on the embassy throughout the afternoon and into the night, tearing down large sections of a security wall outside the 21-story building housing the embassy.

    That is an act of WAR. Further it is the responsibility of the Country the Embassy is in to protect it from external violence. Egypt's Government is proving they can not and will not protect foreign Embassies and you are happy? This should be condemned by all Nations and the condemnation should be directed at the Egyptian Government.

    CAIRO (AP) — Hundreds of Egyptian protesters, some swinging hammers and others using their bare hands, tore down parts of a graffiti-covered security wall outside the Israeli Embassy in Cairo on Friday. Thousands elsewhere protested for the first time in a month against the country's military rulers.

    Outside the Israeli Embassy, protesters for the second time in less than a month pulled down the Israeli flag from atop the 21-story building.

    Egyptian security forces did not intervene as crowds climbed up the embassy's security wall, pummeling it with sledge hammers and tearing away large sections of the cement and metal barrier, which was recently put up to better protect the property from protests.

    Since Mubarak's fall, calls have grown in Egypt for ending the historic 1979 peace treaty with Israel, a pact that has never had the support of ordinary Egyptians. Anger increased last month after Israeli forces responding to a cross-border militant attack mistakenly killed five Egyptian police officers near the border.

    CAIRO (AP) — Egyptian airport officials say the Israeli ambassador is at Cairo's airport waiting for a military plane to evacuate him from the country after protesters broke into Israel's Embassy.

    The officials say other Israelis were also waiting for the evacuation flight to take them back to Israel early Saturday. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

    So... What are their reasons? Masses don't *just* become enraged and destructive. There's obviously more that isn't being mentioned.

    The Egyptian government was paid by the US to side with Israel. The people, however, have always supported the Palestinians.
