Israel Issues Warning To Citizens To Immediately Leave Sinai Peninsula, "Terror Attack Imminent"

Are things between Israel and Egypt about to get really heated?

From BNO News:

JERUSALEM (BNO NEWS) -- Israel's anti-terror bureau warned on Tuesday that a terror attack in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula is imminent and all Israelis must leave the region. The warning message said, quoting intelligence sources, that a terror attack in which Israelis could be kidnapped is imminent, Israeli media reported.  "We call on all Israelis now in Sinai to leave at once and return to Israel," the warning said. "Families of Israelis now in Sinai are requested to make contact and update them of this travel warning."

More from Sky News:

Israel has issued an "urgent" warning to its citizens to leave Egypt's Sinai Peninsula immediately.

It comes after "concrete evidence" of an expected terror attempt to kidnap Israelis in the region.

The warning was issued by the Israeli prime minister's office.

It took the unusual step of calling on families of Israelis touring the Sinai to contact them.

Israel's anti-terror office has a standard travel advisory telling Israelis to stay out of the Sinai desert because of the threat of terror attacks.

However, thousands of Israelis routinely ignore the warning and go on holiday in the desert and along its Red Sea coast.

Egyptian security officials said about 35,000 Israelis are in the Sinai now, and they expected thousands more to arrive later this month.

In the unusually strong statement, the Israeli anti-terror office called "on all Israelis residing in Sinai to leave immediately and return home".

Families of Israelis residing in Sinai are being asked to contact them and update them on the travel warning.

In 2004, suicide bombers attacked Egypt's Taba Hilton Hotel, just across the Israeli border, and several campsites where Israelis are known to stay on holiday.

Dozens of people were killed and hundreds wounded.

Israel controlled the Sinai from its capture in the 1967 war until returning it to Egypt in 1982 in the framework of a peace treaty between the two nations.

Perhaps they are just bringing their citizens back to defend the homeland and not leave them as a target in Muslim countries after they strike Iran?

Over the Easter holiday there was an upswing in Isareli tourists here in Dahab. There were rumors the previous bombings were set off by those disgruntlrd with all those shekels being spent here. Looks like someone doesn't want them sticking around.

Ps if anything does happen God forbid I'll post here if I learn anything. Going out right now to warn people.

Israel Issues Warning To Citizens To Immediately Leave Sinai Peninsula, "False Flag Terror Attack Imminent"

Those of you marking down my comment, please read this carefully.

I am not defending Israel or claiming that this attack (which has not happened yet, if it does happen) must by definition be an Islamic terror attack.

Nor am I accusing CD of anti-Semitism -- only trying to figure out what his motivation would be for throwing out that kind of accusation.

My point was that I don't know what's behind it, and neither do any of you, and anyone pointing fingers at this point regarding a terror attack that hasn't even happened yet is jumping the gun.

 Well i suggest a healthy level of skepticism is warranted.

ML, do you have the memory of a goldfish?  Why would anyone believe anything that any government says these days?  They are always either lying or wrong.

Not trying to be disrespectful, but shit.

A while ago several posters confidently proclaimed the arguments from the "9-11 truthers", and condescendingly dismissed anyone who challenged their discredited viewpoints.


ZH is a useful starting point for researching ideas that challenge the establishment. Apparently, it also attracts a variety of conspiracy theorists of questionable authenticity.

This as the russian general warns israel to stand down while the Egyptions call out iran AND Israel on nukes. Netanyahu pulled out on summit for this very reason along with the escalating US estrangement. The old relaible Tuekey called ISrael the greatest threat to peace last week. Dubai assasination operation gone bad and over 2000 leaked secret documents by a military underling takes some of the shine off the vaunted intel capabilities. Adds up to increasing isolation.....makes sense

don't underestimate the evangelical connection, war in the holy land means the rapture is on the way!


Anonymouse's picture

Oh please.  The Rapture will happen in God's time.  No evangelical would put himself in God's place to "make" the Rapture happen

ZakuKommander's picture

Absolutely!  Those who believe in the Rapture are obviously the clearest of thinkers.

Anonymouse's picture

Your open-mindedness and faith in your fellow man is heartwarming.

ZakuKommander's picture

With all respect, those referencing a belief system that permits some to ascend to bliss while the vast majority of their fellow men are left behind to suffer through times of tribulation should be careful using the term "heartwarming."

Anonymouse's picture

If it is not true, it is harmless as no one will be left behind to suffer.

If it is true, it is not the Christians who make that decision.

The belief system itself doesn't enter into the equation.  It is, or it is not.  And either way, the Christian is not saving or damning anyone, as no one makes the choice for anyone but himself.

ZakuKommander's picture

Your rationality (sarcasm truly off) actually proves my initial point, you clear thinker, you.

faustian bargain's picture

that's what we call 'disingenuous'. i.e. it is well known that many christians do not share that attitude.

'No evangelical would put himself in God's place to "make" the Rapture happen'

Ha ha ha.  There's a group trying to breed a flawless red cow in Israel right now for this very reason (it's from Revelations somewhere, I believe.)  I'm guessing this is among the more harmless Evangelical attempts to bring about the rapture.  Sending money to the settler movement is probably the fave.

Anonymouse's picture

In fairness, I should probably have said, "It is the (extremely) rare evangelical who would be so bold as to think he could force the hand of God."

Though frankly, I would question whether that person truly believed what he espoused, as that would be arrogant in the extreme.

chet's picture

I agree that is the case with most evangelicals.  Unfortunately, the few can aggregate into quite a stream of support for settlers in particular.

And of course you just need a few mega-rich people (jew or gentile) to provide a lot of support for counterproductive policies over there.

I think the rapture already happened and only a dozen or so people were taken. They just happened to be so tedious and worthless, no one notices they're gone.

hedgeless_horseman's picture

Indeed, I do miss Project Mayhem.

faustian bargain's picture

the rapture happened at devil's tower in wyoming, about 25 years ago...they made a docudrama about it..."close encounters" something or other.


Hulk's picture

Yep, it already happened and we are what is left!

25 years ago I sensed myself floating away, but then I saw this hot chick floating above me in a skirt with no undergarments....

All starting to make sense now....

When the Rapture happens, can I have your house?

"well, probability and precedent are in his favor."

That link is pure propaganda.  The Muslims "won" the Lebanon encounter?  I'll pass on such "victories" for my country, and scoff at such a source for my news.

gonna have to agree with link.  CD usually has the best comments going...

Another idiot pro-zionist.  Do you also agree with occupation, war crimes, genocide, and crimes against humanity?

I am Chumbawamba.

Man, you are an angry fella.  Why did your parents leave the paradaise of Syria to come to our filthy Zionist controlled country?   Feel free to return.

Missing_Link's picture

Hey Chumba, what on earth would lead you to accuse me of being "pro-Zionist?"  Did I ever say it was an Islamic terror attack?

Reading comprehension FAIL!

My point was that I don't know, and neither do you, and anyone pointing fingers at this point regarding a terror attack that hasn't even happened yet is jumping the gun.

Those of you who marked my comment as "junk," please read that again very carefully.

percolator's picture

ML, for Chumba and everyone else who can actually read you should not be surprised you're being accused as a pro-Zionist that's because you accused CD as being anti-Zionist. 

This was your first comment which has since been removed / edited:

ML said "Shame on you, CD.  You're really going to write off a possible Islamic terror attack as a false flag -- as a pure knee-jerk reaction -- before it's even happened based on no evidence whatsoever?

What would motivate you to say something so horrible?  Are you anti-Semitic, or do you somehow not believe that the Islamic terrorism in the Middle East is not a real phenomenon?"

I've read your posts and understand that you live in occupied Mexican territory, captured in an unprovoked war of aggression.  Please remove yourself from this occupied territory before lecturing others.  Thank you.

That's not the point son.

There is this thing called a recession going on. Israel is trying to get concessions from the United States (their ally) because Israel knows that if they destabilize the Middle East just now the USA will suffer (with high gas prices.)

Change the subject much?  Why do you live in Israel's unflinching ally?  Your tax money goes to buy weapons for Israel.  If you are this passionate, go home and fight Israel for real, not with a kayboard.

chumbawamba's picture

You are obviously uninitiated.

I do not pay taxes.  I currently have an IRS Summons on my kitchen table to prove it.

YOU pay for genocide and occupation.  I rail against it.

My conscience is clean.  How about you?

I am Chumbawamba.

My conscience is clean.   I admire your tax resistance.

Wish I could join you, though I dont want to be pulled aside when I leave the country...

When they nail you with a 100% penalty, that gold of yours will come in handy Chumba. Pay your taxes, Chumba, the only folks that get away with that crap are literally Franciscan nuns and priests. don't be a "hero".

Such is your claim.
