It is a pity, Dhimmi, that Cairo was taken over by Islamists.

I remember travelling by myself to Cairo, about 15 years ago, and meeting a great scholar on the way and a Cairo Orchestra Musician, both very kind and soft.

I had a great time knowing several great places in Cairo, invited by the professor and the Musician.

The enchantement ended when the scholar wanted something else, not knowing I was Jewish and when the Musician took me to see his Mom @ her house, where they "taught Me" about the Egyptian Military Plan to destroy forever that "@*t" "up there" (Israel, that was stolen from Egypt). _ Let me remind you, it was in 1992.: "... Do you see that ... up there, Ynnatchkah..One day, very soon, it will be completely destroyed....".When I asked why, being so ignorant from a far away foreign country, he said I had no idea what type of barbaric creatures the IDF is formed by....

His uncle held a high position in Egypt Military.

The scholar, a professor of history at Cairo University also hated Jews, but somehow, he had other priorities. Yet, took me to great places, very luxurious btw.Taught me about Amenophes IV and Nephertythe-and also took me to watch a fair of Industrial Engineers... it was really a great trip....However, I had to run away as things started "to burn"...

There are good people in Egypt...It is just it is in the wrong hands. Pity...

Submitting....
