In a country where the President hires the Minister of Information who is responsible for all official and unofficial media outlets, in a country where the Chairman of the Shura Council hires all editors-in-chief and in country where many prisoners of conscience die in prison because of torture or choose to live in seclusion because of the regime’s threats to him/her or their family, I AM NOT SURPRISED to read everywhere that the one of the journalists of one of the government-run newspaper, Al Massaa’, repeats Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s words saying that
the Holocaust did not happen. Not only that the “Banned” Muslim Brotherhood leader whose group won 88 seats in the Egyptian parliament through a good deal with the regime says also that the Holocaust did not happen and calls it a myth
Are we going to be named the "Islamic Republic of Egypt" any soon under the leadership of President Hosni Mubarak who claims that he runs a secular country? It is getting better by the second during your fifth term, onwards to 30 years in power! Photo by Reuters.
