I want to extend my condolences to the Egyptians and other nationals impacted by the terrible human tragedy that befell Dahab on Monday. More than 20 people were killed in a hideous terrorist attack that rocked the peaceful coastal city — the third in the Sinai in 18 months. When will this ever stop! It really is truly disgusting and just so terribly evil!
The husband and I went to Dahab a few years ago and really enjoyed the laid back atmosphere of this place; everyone seemed content and simply at peace. I hope the bombings don’t change its unique atmosphere in the long run.
Here is a picture of Dahab I took during the trip that I called The Dahab Hippies. It was by the beach where people bearing all the hippie hallmarks hung out to get a sun bath.
You might need Q-Tips to clean what you hear, or your ears.
I heard that Coptic Christians where behind the attack.
You’re right about how simple and unique this town is, and hopefully, like all towns and cities hit by tragedy, it will move on. Sadly, we’re in an era where this sort of strategy (scattered attacks on civilian life) is in full swing; possibly the only way to stop it is simply to keep going…for everyday people to keep living their lives as if the threat of terrorism doesn’t exist. Yes, there are political, economic, and religious factors at play, but more than all that, these sorts of attacks are used to instill fear and, eventually, assert power. This reason alone makes it important for people to not allow that fear to control their lives.
Depressing indeed, and so infuriating. When will this insanity ever stop??
