    Funny, as I recall this synagogue was once full of Egyptian Jews. Where did they go? Oh yea, Egypt illegally committed ethnic cleansing and kicked all the Egyptian Jews out, after stealing their properties and assets, of course. And today, the Jews are rededicating a synagogue in Jerusalem's Old City that was destroyed by the Jordanians. No doubt, this is also a "provocation". We're sick and tired of racist Arabs, almost all of whom practice apartheid and have horrific human rights records, yet lie through their teeth and show their racism. "Israeli agression"? The fact is that it's the Egyptians who have shot and killed dozens of unarmed refugees trying to sneak over their border into Israel. That's just one sick statistic of the disgusting human rights record Egypt has. Yet why worry about innocent, unarmed, dead African refugees when people can vent their hatred at Israel?
