Egyptian social media activists called on all Egyptians to take to the streets on Friday to protest Cairo’s ceding of the Red Sea islands of Tiran and Sanafir to Saudi Arabia as part of a new agreement between the states on maritime borders.

The mass demonstrations, organized by a group named "January 2011 Revolution," were being held under the banner, "The land is the honor," rejecting the decision of the Egyptian regime to "sell part of Egypt" to the Saudi kingdom. A drawing of the two disputed islands, as well as their names, appeared on the invitation created for the event on Facebook.

The central demonstration will take place in the famous Tahrir Square in Cairo, while additional protests are expected to take place in other Egyptian provinces.


More than 34,000 Egyptians confirmed their attendance on Facebook, and the organizers said they want at least a million people to participate in the mass protests.

There certainly seems to be a lot of island returning going on these past few years and a lot of arguments about them. They want them for strategic military positioning.  If I lived there and was just trying to be normal, I'd be none too happy about going under Saudi rule.

Hmm,  Egypt is prophesied in the Bible to be a Great Nation in the end times.  King of The South,  right now though it's only got sand and mummies. 

Tracking this for future updates, intriguing to say the least.
