Reports of an Israeli massacare of egyptian POW in 1967 war thanks to an israeli documentary raises the ire of the egyptian government and media , and naturally the egyptian people as well, since, you know, Israel is involved. ("Constitutional ammendments? What constitutional ammendments? The Israelis killed our boys almost 40 years ago!") They all called for the peace treaty to be scrapped or nullified, one nasserite newspaper "Al Karamah" actually went as far as demanding the killing of the israeli ambassador in retribution. Mubarak, for his part, demanded punishment for those who committed those atrocities. Go Mubarak, defender of egyptians!

The Israelis, for their part, are confused, since the documentary doesn't show the killing of any egyptian POW's in it at all. Some started wondering whether the whole thing is a made up crisis!

And now, another Israeli TV documentary- in response to the first documentary- claims that the egyptians killed dozens, if not hundreds, unarmed Israeli POW's in the 1973 war.

I can't wait for the Israelis to start demanding the head of our ambassador on a stick and the scraping of the peace treaty with Egypt. Can you?

Fuckin Hell..
