SO SUE ME

Posted:

In March, columnist Ahmad al-Gamal of Egyptian newspaper Al-Yawm Al-Sabi proposed Egypt sue Israel in international court for reparations for 10 biblical plagues cast from Hebrew curses, including boils, lice, locusts and turning the Nile River into blood. Al-Gamal asserted Israelites swiped gold, silver and other precious items as they began their legendary desert wandering. He also wants reparations from Turkey (for the 16th-century Ottoman invasion), France (Napoleon's 1798 invasion) and Britain (for 72 years of occupation).
