The protests in Egypt having an effect in the Lowcountry

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - On Tuesday night, The Jewish Educational Alliance brought in the Jewish Fund's Israeli Emissary and former consul in Egypt to shed light on what's happening and what it could mean for our future.

"Seeing what's going on there, I think it will bring us to a better Egypt, a better nation, a better place to live. I assume that it will be a much better place to live when it will be taken over by Mubarak's regime; we'll be able to contain it and to transfer power in the very best way that they can do," said Israeli Emissary Ronnie Porat.

Porat also encourages us to talk to our politicians to help make the Egyptian transition smoother.
