    Default Israel tells its citizens to leave Sinai immediately

    On foot of what it calls 'concrete evidence' of an imminent 'terrorist attack'. AP reporting it.

    Usually they issue warnings but leave their citizens to it. This time seems to be different, more specific, they're telling them to get out quick, and to make sure they tell any other Israelis there who might be out of contact to get out too.

    Of course, some might argue that Israeli diplomatic isolation at the moment (well, not isolation, more a bit of a spat with them) require a sudden threat like this to get everyone back on side again. But that would be very cynical............

    What the hell would a sane Israeli be doing in the Sinai in the first place?

    Iran: We will join 'world nuclear club' within a month - Haaretz - Israel News

    maybe its to do with this. They might be about to get going on this. Egypt would be the only country that Israelis citizens would be exposed to immediate attack.

    Apparently it's quite a common holiday destination for Israelis, and a constant source of concer for the Israeli government in that regard. There is supposed to be some of the best coral reef diving sites in the world there.

    Notice that they didn't call on their citizens to "go home". There would be a great run on flights out of Israel if that happened!
