Foreign policy slogans in Egypt

Zionists really like to reassuring themselves.  They oscillate between sheer panic and pathetic and unrealistic self-reassurance.  Some who can't read Arabic, like Thomas Friedman, insist that there are no foreign policy goals or chants for protests in the Arab world.  Yesterday, I was watching coverage of the protests in Tahriri Square from yesterday, and there was a huge banner and it said:  "Down with Ahmad Abu Al-Ghayt, friend of Israel and US."  It is not news unless it is translated into Arabic--and unless it fits Zionist agenda.
