    Isn't there a sphinx in Vegas? Go there. Food's better, too, and female clitoral mutilation is illegal

    Doesn't say much for the progress of Egypt and the negative influence of islime that Egypt was actually a much better place 5000 years ago. Ironically, ancient Egypt was one of the earliest civilizations in history, yet, Egypt, today, is so uncivilized.

    as the arabs themselves say; "it was written'....


    for those that have not realized it yet, 'Egypt' is not the 5-6 blocks surrounding the Embassies and first class Motels in Cairo or Alexandria. Our state dept. and Obama missed that memo apparently. 80% of Egypt is just a step up from fellaheen.

    The huge votes for both Islamic parties should have surprised no one.

    Salam Alaikum......

    You have a point, alot of Westerners have these romantic notions of Egyptians when they think of the Pyraminds and the Ancient Egyptian culture that was there thousands of years ago. However, the people that currently live in Egypt are not the same people that built those beautiful monuments, I have met many Egyptians when I was in the Middle East and the majority of them for the most part are very conservative, backwards and look to Islam for guidance in every aspect of their daily life whether it be personal, business, private etc etc the majority of Egyptians want an Islamic state under strict Muslim guidance, this is what they want and it was foolish of anyone to think that Egypt would turn into Las Vegas or Amsterdam once Mubarak stepped down.

    Egypt is over rated, for the most part it is a third world shit hole, besides the Pyramids and Sphinx what else is there? cheap hashish? no fucking thank you, I'll take Vegas over Egypt anyday of the week, nobody is going to go to Egypt anymore once they start banning alcohol and start covering up the women anyways.

    I don't agree. People go to see the history. Egypt was never really known for "partying" anyways.

    In any case..this sort of sucks. But most of the third world is very conservative.

    Once they ban alcohol and start making women wear burkas like in Iran they can kiss their tourism industry good bye, people aren't exactly lining up to visit countries with strict Islamic rules and guidelines.
