The protests in Egypt are not anti-Israel

The BBC and other news outlets are keen to present the uprising in Egypt as being one in favour of democracy and not being at all concerned with Israel; oh really...

Go to 1:30 and listen to 2:50 and hear what at least some of the people on the streets of Cairo want:
"All the people hate him.  He’s supporting Israel!  Israel is our enemy. We don’t like him…Israel and America supported him.  We hate them all!" and then we are told that the removal of Mubarek means that the people in Egypt will be able to "destroy Israel."

Meanwhile Israelly Cool  reports that:
'Mohamed Ghanem, one of the leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, calls Egypt to stop pumping gas to Israel and prepare the Egyptian army for a war with it’s eastern neighbor.

Speaking with Iranian television station Al-Alam, Mohamed Ghanem blamed Israel for supporting Hosni Mubarak’s regime. Ghanem also said that the Egyptian police and army won’t be able to stop the Muslim Brotherhood movement.'

I have a very bad feeling about all of this but the BBC will not report such words as it goes against their 'narrative'.
