Dr. Pipes

I wanted to bring to your attention a follow up on the Iranian tourists that arrived for a visit to Egypt and this has been lost in the big story of the charges against Bassem Youssef and these are the tourists from Iran that arrived for a visit to Luxor and Upper Egypt and it seems that Morsi who was responding to the salafists demands also wanted them to have nothing to do with the Shia shrines in Cairo after all clueless Morsi and the salafists do not want the Shia to ruin the minds of Sunni Egyptians!

So what did Egypt get? They got a group of affluent Iranians and here are a few pictures from al-masry al-youm

I do not see any poor Shia here. And notice that you do not see any chadors and only one woman wearing hijab and even one woman that is sleeveless!

Egypt is for sure not Iran ikhwan muslimeen or no ikhwan muslimeen

So what is the response of the salafists? they are not very happy and here is the response of a salafi leader by the name of Ahmad el-Sisi and he is not happy

Oh we have not seen the end of it

Our leaders do not seem to have a clue that Sunni and Shia Muslims do not see eye to eye and that there will never be a support for a nuclear Iran in Egypt
