    CAIRO (Reuters) - Egyptian activists demolished a wall around the Israeli embassy in Cairo Friday after thousands demonstrated at Tahrir Square to push for a timetable for transition to democracy and an end to military trials for civilians.
    Activists who spearheaded an uprising that ousted President Hosni Mubarak in February have been piling pressure on the ruling military council to fix a date for parliamentary and presidential elections and to get rid of officials who served under Mubarak.
    After Friday prayers, thousands had converged on Tahrir Square, the epicenter of the protests that toppled Mubarak, for what was billed as "Correcting the Path" protests.
    Some of the demonstrators later marched to the other side of the Nile in Giza, where they used hammers and large metal rods to destroy the wall, erected this month by Egyptian authorities after daily protests over the killing of five Egyptian border guards in Sinai.
    "This action shows the state of anger and frustration the young Egyptian revolutionaries feel against Israel especially after the recent Israeli attacks on the Egyptian borders that led to the killing of Egyptian soldiers," Egyptian political analyst Nabil Abdel Fattah told Reuters.
    Egyptian police stood aside as activists tore down the concrete wall to the cheers of hundreds of demonstrators.
    "It is great that Egyptians say they will do something and actually do it," Egyptian film director and activist Khaled Youssef said, standing among the protesters outside the embassy.
    "They said they will demolish the wall and they did ... the military council has to abide by the demands of the Egyptian people," he said.
    Israel Radio cut into its Sabbath programing with bulletins about the Cairo demonstrations. Citing Foreign Ministry sources, it said the ambassador was safely at his official residence and that Israel was in contact with Egypt, the United States and European powers about the incident.
    "Police will not do anything to the protesters and they will be left unharmed to continue demolishing the wall," one security source said.
    Tensions between the two countries sparked a series of angry protests that reached a climax last month when a demonstrator scaled the building and removed the Israeli flag.
    The five security men died during an Israeli operation against gunmen who had killed eight Israelis. Egypt threatened to withdraw its ambassador from Tel Aviv. Israel has stopped short of apologizing, saying it is still investigating how the Egyptian troops were killed.
    Protesters also demonstrated outside the Interior Ministry, near Tahrir Square, where some hurled stones at the building.
    TAHRIR PROTESTS
    Fridays demonstrations were organised mostly by secular groups which had been pushing for reforms, a new constitution and an end to the trial of civilians before military courts.
    Islamists, including the political party set up by the Muslim Brotherhood -- Egypt's best organised political force after the dissolution of Mubarak's National democratic Party -- have distanced themselves from the planned protests.
    The country's military rulers have promised to hand back power to a civilian government after elections, which they said would be held before the end of 2011. The council has also facilitated the trial of Mubarak and several of his aides, including former Interior Minister Habib al-Adli, on charges of corruption or conspiring to kill some 850 demonstrators.
    But many Egyptians remain skeptical.
    "Since January 25 until today, we don't feel there has been any change," said Kamel Ebrahim, a 37-year-old civil servant who was among the thousands in Tahrir Square.
    "Thugs and thieves have multiplied and the Field Marshal has done nothing to improve things," he said, referring to Mohamed Hussein Tantawi, head of the ruling military council.
    The protests also put pressure on Tantawi, who is due to testify in Mubarak's trial in a closed session Sunday. The judge has banned all media coverage of the proceedings during the week also. Other senior figures, including former officials under Mubarak, will also testify.
    "This is your last chance, either you say the people are in my heart or you leave," a man who identified himself only as a driver said. "Will you be able to say that Mubarak did not give orders to shoot?" he said, standing beneath a large poster on which Tantawi's face was spliced together with Mubarak's.
    Activists said they have no plans to camp in the square.
    Protests were also organised in Alexandria, Egypt's second largest city, and in Suez. Witnesses said military police detained three activists during a demonstration in the city.
    In Alexandria, thousands of protesters chanted "The trial, the trial or the gang will stay in power."
    One of the protesters, Hazem Ahmed, 26, a member of Egypt's Democratic Front party said, "I joined the protest today because of the slow pace of the trials and it being not serious."

    Look for Israel to clean up the neighborhood. Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria. Then the U.N. will get a giant coalition together and attack Israel and Israel will win that one to.

    Israel imeomba US msaada wa kulinda ubalozi wake Cairo.

    Nilidhani Israel ni nuclear state. Kumbe "taifa teule" hawana uwezo wa kujilinda wala haiba ya kuomba wazi wazi ulinzi kwa Marekani?

    Hii ni moja ya debate kubwa ktk US kuhusu mapinduzi ya Egypt. Kuna wale waliopinga kuhusu kuangushwa kwa Mubarak, kwa sababu ya hofu kama hii ya urafiki kati ya Egypt na Zion State.

    Sasa hivi tunaona nchi kama Turkey inakuwa na tension kubwa sana na Israel.

    Zamani USA alikuwa anatoa ahadi za pesa na kadhalika kwa nchi nyingi sana za MidEast. Sasa hivi zote zile regime zimeanguka. USA hajui ni nani wa kumpa hizo rushwa ili kutuliza hizi protests za kila siku.

    Naona Obama kawapa nguvu sana MidEast.

    What I know Egypt will never be the same after recent revolution...those thugs who tears down Israel embassy wall are cheating themselves since their action will neither improves their lives nor help to build democracy they fought for. I can simply say those thugs are hooligans who want to use Israel as scapegoat which in my view it wont help to solve the chronic problems faced by most Egyptian...the energy spent in tearing that wall down could have been better spent in cleaning and collecting garbage from the dirty streets of Alexandria, El Giza, Cairo and Port Said... Mubarak was good for Egypt since in nature Arabs can never be ruled democratically.

    Mkubwa, katika pecking order ya geopolitical conflicts mambo yako hivi:

    Nchi ambayo ni Nuclear state ni nchi temi kuliko nchi ambayo sio nuclear state, hata kama msipotumia Nuclear kwa sababu kufika kwenye nuclear stage natural sequence of military build up ina predict kwamba utakuwa umeshajiweka sawa kivingine kabla ya kufikia hiyo Nuclear. Utakuwaje na nuclear usiwe na vifaru na manowari na ndege za kivita? Israel ni nuclear state, Egypt sio Nuclear state, Israel inategemewa iwe na uwezo wa kivita zaidi kuliko Egypt, hata bila kutumia Nuclear, japo mwisho wa siku nuclear siku zote iko on the table.

    Isingetegemewa Israel iombe msaada kwa Nuclear state nyingine kulinda balozi yake katika nchi ambayo sio nuclear state. Imetia aibu, imeonyesha udhaifu. Umepata picha?

    Moja ya madai ya Egypt ni kuuwawa kwa askari 5 au sita wa Egypt kwenye mpaka wa Israel na Gaza. Baada ya Israel kufanya kitendo hicho je Wamisri wamewafanya nini Waisrael?

    Uturuki nao ni wafa maji tu raia wake kumi waliuwawa kwenye flotia; wamewafanyaje Waisrael?

    Hao waarabu wote ni walalamikaji tu as usual; but at the end of the day watakuwa wamewafurahisha raia wake kwa ukuta uliovunjika na matishio ya kuvunja uhusiano wa kibalozi na Israel. Arabs are just infirior to Jews and that is the painful truth Arabs don't want to swallow!

    ...In real terms the recent surge in anti-Israel protests is not related to the killings, but a manifestation of changing balance of power in world politcs ...from West to East. (The Middle East/Arab World is the playing field)

    A small correction: It should read Middle East. Far East ni huko Vietnam, Japan n.k!
