Submitted by dhimmi no more (United States), Aug 9, 2008 at 07:50

Now boys and girls our dear Jon on his little trip to Egypt "out of interest" or is it for a masters thesis in God knows what wrote this gem

>Magdi (in Coptic Cairo),

Hmmm. let me see so you are writing a masters thesis right? then magdi must have a last name! So what is his last name?

>Maher (in Darb al-Ahmar,

ROTFL Pakistani Arabic. No I suspect that it would be el-darb el-ahmar. You need to stick to Urdu our dear Jon. I just do not get it why do Pakistanis ...have problems with the arabic language al al-ta3reef and when to use it and when not to use it.

>where I was conducting some interviews with the help of an Egyptian (Muslim) friend named Walid),

What is Walid's last name?

> and two younger guys

And their names? And what was the interviews about? Oh is it your little thesis or is it your little "out of interest" little trip?You know if I was to be your advisor you will flunk so far and do you know why? because you have no credebility so far and you are making things up as you go and do you think that we infidels do not read your nonsense?

>in Muqattam az-Zebbaleen

ROTFL Pakistani Arabic. The word muqattam is the name of gabal el-muqattam and I suepect tha it is harat el-zabaleen

For the readers: I susepct that our dear Jon watched the BBC documentary about the Coptic garbage collectors in Cairo that live in the area on the Muqattam mountain but they really live in harat or district of el-zabaleen or those that collect the garbage

And do you know what is the dead give away that you must be Pakistani? It is the ez- in el-zabaleen. I urge you to stick to Urdu

But wait: why would you conduct a study among those that collect garbage? They already have a job our dear Jon. What a fake

>whose first names I have since forgotten

Let me see; you told us that this is a thesis right? then you can consult your notes and find their names. Right? If you forget your source then you flunk our dear Jon.

>(in the St. Simeon the Tanner complex's cafeteria and in a street café later).

St Simeon the tanner complex? Where on earth is that? let me guess; fantasy? so in Egyptian Arabic it would be: el-qedees sham3oon el-dabagh. I thought that those Copts are zabaleen and not dabagheen? See what you got yourself into?

>All of them either had good enough English that I could talk in English with them or, in the case of Maher, I talked to him through a translator. Does this answer your question as to who and where?

Yes it does and my answer to you is: What a fake
