Tiran, Sanafir, and Civil Unrest in Egypt

Last month, Egyptian President Abd a-Fattah al-Sisi announced that he was returning the two Red Sea islands of Tiran and Sanafir to Saudi Arabia. The announcement sparked unprecedented public opposition to Egypt's president in both the press and on the streets. The Egyptian public's reaction shows signs that Egyptian's patience is wearing thin. In this week's episode, Mike and Danny discuss the history and significance of Tiran and Sanafir as well as the state of affairs in Egypt.
