Ships did not cut internet cable.

No ships were present when two marine cables carrying much of the Middle East’s internet traffic were severed, Egypt’s Ministry of Communications has said, contrary to earlier speculation about the causes of the cut.

The ministry had originally stated that a ship dropping its anchor on the two key cables was most likely responsible for Wednesday’s cut in service that robbed Egypt, Saudi Arabia and India of most of their internet connections.

“A marine transport committee investigated the traffic of ships in the area, 12 hours before and after the malfunction, where the cables are located to figure out the possibility of being cut by a passing vessel and found out there were no passing ships at that time,” said the statement.

The ministry added that the location, 5 miles from the port of Alexandria, was in a restricted area so ships would not have been allowed there to begin with.

Internet connectivity in Egypt had now reached 70-80 per cent of its previous rate due to rerouted connections through alternate cables in the Far East and to Italy, added the statement.

Two ships have sailed from France and Italy at the request of cable owners Fiber-Optic Link Around the Globe (FLAG) and the South East Asia-Middle East-West Europe 4 (SEA-ME-WE 4) and will begin repairs which are expected to take several days.

The ministry estimated that full service in Egypt would not be restored for another ten days.


(Long pause…)


Read on.
In times of possible great change…see my Obama article (Barack Obama’s Excellent Adventure. Or…St. Quantum Takes Yet Another Electroflying Leap. ) possible great resistance ramps up at the same time.

The more things change, the more they try to remain the same.


And pray.

Is this Israeli/U.S. sabotage in preparation for some REAL shit?

From (Yeah…I know. Rense. But I’ve been thinking about this for days.)

The website,, reports that as of Friday, 1 February 2008, internet traffic routing through/from/to Iran has been cut to zero. Packet loss is 100%. (4)

2. Whereas CNN reported on Thursday, 31 January 2008, that internet traffic to Israel has been unaffected because Israel uses a “different route”. The same CNN article also reports that Lebanon and Iraq have been “spared the chaos”. (5)

So, the sudden, unprecedented round of undersea, communications cable cutting in the Middle East leaves Israel and Iraq still connected, while completely shutting down the Iranian internet.

Funny how that works, isn’t it?

The situation is well beyond our individual means to affect anyway, except by understanding.

And real understanding IS real prayer.

Bet on it.

Let us pray…
