646) The Egyptian Map .. !

Guys, some or many of you may consider this a trivial issue, but believe me it is an important one. Almost all of the international maps have Egypt boarders with Sudan drawn wrong according to the British Administrative division between Egypt and Sundan when they succeeded in splitting them apart in the 1950s. Halayeb Triangle was recognized as Egyptian land but administrated by Sudan. Egypt boarders officially goes along with latitude line 21, but most of the maps got it wrong.

Please make sure everytime you see the wrong map (above) to send the publishers the right one (below). We should be proactive, it is our land, and our duty to keep it right on the maps.

One of the comments I have got on facebook:

This is the map approved by the UN based on Sudan claim & query. They submitted the maps & the old Anglo Egyptian Treaty & we sent troops there & established a new reality on the ground subject to explode at anytime & we didn't care to debate it with the UN & The Sudanese.

Another sign of the genius Egyptian Foreign Policy :)

Check this out Kaman

قرية مصريه تقدر مساحتها بـ15 كليومتر مربعا، وتعود تسميها بـ " أم الرشراش " إلي إحدى القبائل العربية التي سكنتها.
احتلتها إسرائيل في 10 مارس 1949، أي بعد ستة شهور من اتفاقية الهدنة، و بعد حرب ١٩4٨ بسنة. وقد احتلتها (إسرائيل) بالكامل عقب قرار وقف إطلاق النار، مستغلة فرصه انسحاب الحامية الأردنية التي كانت تحت إمرة قائد إنجليزي، للحصول علي موطئ قدم، ومنفذ بحري علي البحر الأحمر. وقامت القوات الاسرائليه بقتل جميع أفراد وضباط الشرطة المصرية في المدينة، وعددهم 350 قتيلا، بالرغم من أن "عصابات رابين"، دخلت المدينة دون طلقة رصاص واحدة، لالتزام قوة الشرطة المصرية بأوامر القيادة بوقف إطلاق النار. وقد سبب احتلال ام الرشراش إحراجاً كبيراً للملك فاروق حيث تدعي الوثائق أنه كان سيعقد اتفاقية صلح مع إسرائيل، واحتلالها منعه من فعل ذلك.
اقيم علي موقعها ميناء إيلات الإسرائيلي.
