That awkward moment where you want to declare a state of emergency then realize you've been having it for 30 years.
Damn those guys who climb buildings are scary! (watching youth climb up building housing #israeliembassy on TV)
@habibahamid @tomgara Unfortunately, I think #Egyptians are going to see some kind of #SCAF crackdown in the wake of this mob attack.
Was that @salmasaid? RT @halmustafa: #video: #AlJazeera: Protester outside #IsraeliEmbassy in #Cairo bit.ly/oWua9B #Israel #Egypt
A couple of people still in #tahrir, but police have not returned to the square as interior ministry orders stated yesterday #egypt
Interior ministry cancels all holidays for officials working there until the crisis of tonight's protest ends #egypt #israelembassy
SCAF had support to recall ambassador or expel Israel's - with peaceful protests- but fully chickened out. Fun to see them in such spot now.
I drove across Cairo today and went to the mall. The numbers of Cairenes in traffic and at the mall was normal for a Friday.
guys it is an emergency status in the ministry
At the risk of getting twittattacked, can I just say that the majority of Cairenes were actually NOT in Tahrir or at #israeliembassy today?

Israeli ambassador decided to leave after hearing that some kids scattered his stack of documents?
@acarvin In all cases, Godspeed!
Tear gas not ending .very strong
@mosaaberizing that, or he concluded that #SCAF had no interest in protecting the embassy, now or in the near future.
Egyptians need to focus on domestic issues, their situation is too delicate to concentrate on Palestine. Anyone agree?

Remember how Arab regimes used anti-Israel sentiment to detract from substantive domestic issues? No?
I'm intrigued that Mr Obama took weeks before any comments about Syrian regime were made, but for Israeli embassy it takes hours?

and Obama expresses his extreme concern over what is happening to the Israeli embassy
In the grand scheme of things, this'll just be another incident expressing the growing discontent. There won't be a war. Chill the fuck up.
