A conversation between a few friends over lunch today.
(I was the one asking the most basic questions…)

“Do you think Egypt will overthrow its government?”

“Who knows.”

“I think it’s a matter of time.”

“Do you know the demonstrations were organized over Twitter?”

“Yeah, so they shut it down.”

(Me:) “Shut Twitter down?”

“No, they shut the Internet down.”

(Me:) “What, of the whole country?”

“Yep, and the cellphone network too.
So Egypt currently has no Internet or cell phone service.”

“I’m afraid they are going to end up taking out their frustrations on us.
It’s always easy to blame Israel.”

“That’s true for all our neighbors.
It’s easy to blame Israel for their own problems.”

“I heard that if you tried to Google ‘Egypt’ in China right now, you won’t be able to find anything.
The government blocked it.”


“I’m personally most afraid of Jordan.”

“Jordan, why?”

“Because like 77% of the population is Palestinian.”

“I more scared of Lebanon.”

“Yeah, those in Haifa should feel threatened.”

“Don’t worry, they’ll reach you in Tel Aviv too.”

“I should move south.”

“Syria or Egypt can reach you down there.”

    日本のニュースでも頻繁にエジプトの暴動が報道さえているよ。 インターネットや電話回線を断ち切るなんて、本当にひどい。そんなことをしたらもっと民衆が暴徒化していくんじゃない?抑えれば抑えるほど反発は必須だよ。
    それにしてもエジプトの話題からヨルダン、レバノン、そしてイスラエルへ話が流れていく感じ。なんともイスラエル人らしい。シミもよく、It’s easy to blame Israel って言ってるよ。
