Ahmad el-Shahat, a young Egyptian man from Sharqiya, climbed 14 floors till he reached the balcony of the Zionist embassy in Giza, took down the Israeli flag and replaced it with Egypt’s. The same happened to the flag on top of the Alexandria consulate, where protesters replaced the Israeli flag with Palestine’s. Demonstrations broke out in Fayoum, Beheira, Ismailia, Suez, Mansoura, Luxor and elsewhere demanding the expulsion of the Zionist diplomats and cutting all relations with the apartheid regime. Some even managed to reach the residence of the Israeli ambassador in Maadi, which is a fortress.
We will never forget Palestine. The road to Jerusalem passes through the Arab capitals.
