British role in Egypt

Reader comment on item: Palace Walk

Submitted by Lamya (United States), Mar 12, 2006 at 05:26

The review is great, but you failed to include the role of Fahmy and his opposition to the British occupation. You focused more on how the so-called islamic society oppressed the people and made it difficult for Egypt to move towards modernity (which is true only to some extent), however; you do not mention how the British also played a role in taking away resources from Egypt and draining it's wealth for its own benefit which consequently did not allow it to innovate freely.
