Israelis Warned ‘Don’t Go Back to Egypt for Passover’

Every year, a few thousand Israelis think there is nothing better to do on Passover but to celebrate the Exodus from Egypt by going back there, apparently thinking that terror is better then slavery.

The Israeli National Security Council’s counterterrorism bureau has warned Israelis and other tourists and businessmen to stay away from the terror-infested Sinai Peninsula, especially during Passover.

The Counter Terrorism Bureau has posted 33 warnings that terrorists, including those who take orders from Hizbullah, are roaming the world on the prowl for victims, especially Israelis.

Warnings also were posted against traveling to tourist sites, and terrorist hotspots’, such as Indonesia and Malaysia as well as the more popularly known terrorist favorites of Yemen, Tunisia, Afghanistan, Sudan and Algeria.

“According to our information, there continues to exist threats of revenge against Israelis abroad, especially businessmen and former government officials,” according to the Bureau.

It added that terrorists want to kidnap victims as well as murder them. “There have been multiple kidnappings in the Sinai of U.S. citizens over the past four years, and kidnappings of foreign tourists in the Sinai have increased since January 2012.

“Overland travel from Israel to the Sinai in particular is strongly discouraged.”

It added, “Hizbullah blames Israel publicly for the death of Imad Mughniyeh,” the Hizbullah mastermind terroroist who was assassinated in 2008, presumably by Mossad agents.

The Bureau reminded travelers that Iran has accused Israel of being responsible for the deaths of eight nuclear scientists.

  1. Ani Stubbs says:

    No ****tttt

  2. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    Reports are an Israeli was kidnapped today in Sinai. The Israelis that go to Sharm every yr are warned repeatedly of the personal dangers. They do so at their own risk and this should not become an opportunity as it was with Shalit for the gov't to release prisoners in exchange.

  3. I think the Old testament or Torah also warns people not to go down to Egypt.
