“I read it and then scanned again because I was specifically looking for that. I can see it now, and I assume they didn't edit the article since there's no note—in which case I apologize to the author.”
“I certainly don't condone the attack on the embassy, but why no mention of Israel's shooting of 5 Egyptian security personnel? From what I have read this was what sparked the increased tensions.”

“The ones caught in the crossfire during the Israeli border raid on militants? It was all over the news when it happened. Clearly Egypt is losing control....as was predicted...the real goal of the "Arab Spring" is the restoration of the caliphate. events are moving quickly now.”

“I guess you forgot that the raid on Eilat in Israel was led by Palestinian terrorists dressed as Egyptian soldiers who slipped into Israel at the Egypt-Israel border. Let's place some blame on Egypt.”

“They did mention in the article the accidental shooting of 5 Egyptian police officers on the Egypt-Israeli border following the sneak border crossing from the Sinai by Gazans supported by Hamas and then those Gazans' shooting at a tour bus and killing 8 Israelis.
And although the Egyptian military, backed by scores of Egyptian police, helped rescue the handful of Israeli personnel still in the building (after the general evacuation earlier), initially they did nothing: They let about 30 protesters into the residential building (beneath the upper floors where the Embassy was actualy located), who then proceded to batter their way through three security doors (no doubt some important intel was secretly provided in order for these protesters to even breach the triple security that protected the Embassy).
Very sad - but not surprising, indeed, probably inevitable. Egypt had been at war with Israel under Nassar, but apparently too many Epytians couldn't tolerate the peace that Sadat and Mubarak forced on their unwilling populace.”

“This was a MISTAKE on the part of Israel, and they apologized for it, they would very much like to have good relations with Egypt !!!!!!”
“"Anger increased last month after Israeli forces responding to a cross-border Palestinian militant attack mistakenly killed five Egyptian police officers near the border. The militants, apparently from Gaza, had trekked across Egypt's Sinai Peninsula and sneaked into Israel, killing eight Israelis."
“I agree — the Australian food picture had fried onion rings (which is American) and, I think, a pastie which is British. And Chinese food as the 3rd worst? It's either pure click-bait, journalism fail, or someone is trying to annoy a lot of people.”

“Its salt and pepper squid..and its not a pastie, it a filo triangle, (pasties are a half moon shape and made with different dough) Australia has a multicultural cuisine, however, it is still true to taste of the country it comes from, we haven't dumbed it down!”
