    Young Palestinian filmmaker Nagham Mohanna, who took part in the mediterranean/middle east documentary training program Storydoc (see below) sends this report on her journey back to her home via Egypt.

    Hello everybody, I hope everything is ok and not so horrible as I am feeling now. Let me tell you about my travelling because it is really amazing. I left Corfu at 7:25 am and arrived in Athens at 8: 20 am on Saturday. Stayed in Athens airport around 5 hours.

    Left Athens at 2:30 pm and arrived in Cairo at 4:30 pm.

    And here we begin. The opening of a torture journey. When an Egyptian officer saw that I am Palestinian the procedures were started, to know if they can let me enter Egypt or not.

    While waiting in the airport and seeing how other people with other nationalities entered Cairo without any problems, they called me to investigate about my job and the workshop that I attended in Corfu. They told

    me that maybe they will take me immediately to the border and not let me enter Cairo again.

    I asked them how could that happen as I am a journalist and a girl and you have to show for me some respect! At 10pm they called me back and told me that I can enter Egypt, but that another Gaza filmmaker who attended the workshop will be expelled. I thought that I did not want to miss a big opportunity to discover the way and procedures of expelling, so I asked them to expel me with other people.

    The procedures are:

    Evidently the Egyptians know there are Palestinians. They are the ones singled out for a hard time.

    The Palestinian Muslims, Christians, and Jews were all opposed to the creation of a Jewish state.

    Israel was created 3000 years ago, 1000 years before Christ was born and 2000 years before Mahomet was born.

    Why would those Jews be opposed to a Jewish state?
