    But what about reparations for slavery?

      It seems the Jews took care of that on the way out of Egypt themselves, if you believe the book of Exodus.
      Curiously, a subject of ANOTHER EGYPTIAN LAWSUIT was about just that!

    Reminds of the old “Bargain Movers” scam wherein sketchy families heading back to Egypt would rent a truck and a container. Then fill the container with valuable furniture cheapskate rich people had hired them to move to their new digs and then set sail for home sweet home.
    Good times long gone ?

    If they file it with the Hague they will of course rule in favor of the muslims.

    Which plague was Bat S*** Crazy?
    That’s the one you own 100%. Go sue yourselves, dimwits.

    When the 10 plagues were unleashed on Egypt, they were Polytheist Ra Worshipers. Tell these Muslims to go piss up a rope. Too bad they killed off most of the original Egyptians once the religion of peace took over.

    Maybe the JEWS show SUE the Egyptians for their Labour and Intellectual INPUT for building the Pyramids .

    • David_Martin

      Israel as representative for the Jews should register a builder’s lien on the Pyramids for unpaid wages.

    Is there anything the least bit Intelligent about ISLAM—
    That was NOT plagiarized ?

    Hah! So now they’re admitting that they did enslave the Jews (or rather, Israelites)? Colour me gobsmacked! For as long as I can remember the Egyptians have refuted the Israelites’ history of ever having been there. Can’t have it both ways, boys.

  • mashaba1

    The Egyptian Muslims should sue themselves. According to Islam Moses and all the other prophets were Muslims not Jews.

    Is the Eleventh Plague insanity?

    Because those who the Gods wish to destroy, they first make mad…

    Well isn’t it nice to have the Jews’ claim to Israel verified by an Egyptian nutter. Cool.
