Not so Quiet on Egyptian Front

As Israelis celebrated Rosh Hashana over a long holiday weekend,

Syria and Iran were getting headlines and attention.

Maybe I missed it, being occupied with family matters and holiday meals,

but I have not seen many reports coming from Egypt, just ones about Sinai attacks.

Of course, a 18:00 curfew kind of limits things,

as only protesters seem to try and test that early curfew hour.

This photo was taken in Cairo on Friday afternoon, September 6.

Small protests are being blocked and stopped.

A group similar to this one was turned back on their way to the Israeli ambassador’s residence on Thursday.

All is not quiet on the Egyptian front.

How many have to be killed for it to make the headlines?
