I’d like to think this is a hoax

but unfortunately, it probably isn’t.

Egyptians may sue Jews over the Exodus
CAIRO, Aug. 21 (UPI) — A dean at Egypt’s University of Al-Zaqaziq is preparing a lawsuit against “all the Jews of the world,” accusing them of stealing gold during the exodus.
The university’s dean of law, Nabil Hilmi, told the Egyptian weekly newspaper Al-Ahram Al-Arabi the Jews during the exodus “stole from the Pharaonic Egyptians gold, jewelry, cooking utensils, silver ornaments, clothing and more …”
Asked why cooking utensils might have been taken, Hilmi said “… this had been the Jews’ twisted way throughout history; they seek to cause a minor problem connected with the needs of everyday life so as to occupy people with these matters and prevent them from pursuing them to get back the stolen gold …”
Hilmi said the “debt” could be rescheduled over 1,000 years, with the addition of the cumulative interest during that period.

The only people entitled to anything would be the pagan Egyptians, the ones who believed in Isis and Osiris, and whoops, they’re all gone. How’d that happen? Who could have perpetrated such a dastardly deed? Anyone? Professor Hilmi?

    This is an old one. Talmud, Sanhedrin 91a:
    It happened again that the Egyptians summoned Israel before Alexander of
    Macedonia, demanding from them the gold and silver which they had borrowed
    from them at the time of their exodus. As it reads [Ex. xii. 36]: “And the
    Lord hath given the people favor in the eyes of the Egyptians, so that they
    gave unto them what they required; and they emptied out Egypt.” And Gbiah b.
    Psisa requested from the sages permission to be the advocate of the
    defendant Israel, with the same reason mentioned above. He got this
    permission, and did so. Then he said to them: What is your evidence? And
    their answer was: From your Torah. Then said he: I in defence will also
    bring my evidence from the same, which reads [ibid., ibid. 40]: “Now the
    time of the residence of the children of Israel, which they dwelt in Egypt,
    was four hundred and thirty years.” Hence I demand of you the wages for the
    labor of six hundred thousand men whom your parents compelled to work for
    them all the time they were in Egypt. And Alexander decided that the
    Egyptians should give a proper answer–for which they requested three days’
    time, which was allowed to them. But they could not find a satisfactory
    answer, and they fled, leaving their sown fields and their planted
    vineyards. And also this year was a Sabbatical one.”
