Dr Pipes

Our MSM is too busy with the Russian hysteria and the online humiliation of CNN and I suppose finding a person who posts a gif video making fun of CNN is big news More so when he was blackmailed by CNN So for your readers that want to read interesting news from let us say Egypt that is not reported by our media

1. The murder of the Polish citizen Magdalena Zuk who was murdered in an Egyptian Red Sea resort and this happened this past April and still the crime is unsolved and is there any links to Jihadists? We really don't know but it can only damage the fragile tourist industry in Egypt

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/africa/polish-woman-egypt-holiday-magdalena-zuk-murder-red-sea-resort-marsa-alam-a7742446.html

2. The recent attack on tourists by an Islamist in the Red Sea resort of al-Ghardaqa (Hurghada) and two German tourists were stabbed to death and four other tourists sustained stab wounds Again he is an Islamist

3. This is another very interesting news item: 400 Chinese Muslims or Uighur and they are students at al-Azhar University were deported back to China Reason? It has not been given but one must suspect that both Egypt and China are very worried about exporting Islamic terrorism to China

http://www.bbc.com/arabic/middleeast-40525052

4. One Egyptian killed and many injured on Warraq Island which is located north of the very affluent Zamalek island but it is populated by mostly poor people The police claims that some people were occupying public land and the end result? Riots and anger

5. Coptic churches are halting activities during the rest of the month of July! Reason? Fear of Islamic terrorism

6. Most popular weapon used by Muslim terrorists in Egypt? The knife! Check this item

7. Most damaging to the economy must be the sharp drop in the value of the Egyptian pound Now one US dollar buys 17.94 Egyptian pounds and just two years ago one US dollar would get you about 8 Egyptian pounds

8. Refugees in Egypt? Yes Egypt is now the home of 5 yes 5 million refugees Far more than Europe and some refugees are doing very well and the ones that are doing very well are the Syrian refugees

https://www.brookings.edu/blog/future-development/2016/10/04/who-are-the-5-million-refugees-and-immigrants-in-egypt/

http://english.ahram.org.eg/NewsContent/1/151/217025/Egypt/Features/Syrians-in-Egypt-A-haven-despite-the-hardships.aspx

Does the EU or the US or even the UN care about these refugees in Egypt? Not in the least

9. Egyptians accuse Obama and his Admin of supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and this support is still part of the US policy in the Trump Admin

Daniel Pipes replies:

Your headline and your summary ("Egypt is now the home of 5 yes 5 million refugees Far more than Europe") do not reflect the contents of the Brookings report which is: "the 5 million immigrants are mostly Sudanese, some of whom have lived in Egypt for generations. And the 500,000 figure likely overstates the number of Syrian refugees.")
