On Saturday, the official Facebook page of the State of Israel in Arabic linked to the foreign ministry published a photo of Ramadan hugging Israeli singer Omer Adam on a Dubai rooftop.

He's got no respect for nothin'. Don't do the crime, if you can't do the time.

There are a billion or so (almost exactly in fact) reasons why the dictator of Egypt is soon to be ex.

And by "put on trial" you mean "criticized on Twitter".

The trial hearing is on December 19th. It's not mentioned in the article though but he is going to face the amazing charge of "offending the Egyptian people". Apparently "Selfie with Jews" is too specific.
This can lead to prison time, it happened before.

When people talk about how the US is awful, things like this are a nice change of pace.

Is that why Sean Connery became a recluse?

"Selfie With Jews" is my Def Leppard/Bob Dylan mashup act.

I'm not sure "Yeah, things can be awful here, but they're SO much worse in other places" is the kind of upbeat positive message that puts a spring in anyone's step.

It's not so much that as "The US is worse than any other country in the world."

So they haven't, in fact, let those people go.

You used to laugh about
Plantation layabouts
Dreadlocks flowing in the breeze
All day slashing cane
A tuppence for the day
Your pockets, full of what you seized
so
Pour some sugar on me!
In name of Jah
Pour some sugar on me!

"We aren't last!" is a heck of a standard to hold yourself to.

when will the arab world wake up and realize that the hatred for Israel is only there for their dictatorial governments to distract the citizenry.  Egypt doesn't care about the palenstinians nor does any other arab country.

About the same time America wakes up and realizes that the Ds and Rs aren't nearly as different as they present themselves, and have been keeping the general public distracted with wedge issues while they continue to line the pockets of corporate interests.

The same corporate interests who own all the major news outlets, coincidentally enough.

No they're not.  The US is just sliding down from 1st World shiat hole, to 2nd World shiat hole...

They're still better than a 3rd World shiat hole after all.

Except Flint MI still doesn't have reliable fresh water

If they are gonna boycott a singer for taking a selfie with Israelis, they should boycott the billions in foreign aid that they get for having a peace treaty with Israel. Maybe stupid Egyptians should STFU.
