    I am Egyptian, and am against the MB. That said, to call it a dictatorship is a gross exaggeration. The shops being closed has been pushed back more than a month and times adjusted due to public outrage. The scene that was cut from the movie as done voluntarily due to Shi'ite (less than 1% of Egypt's population)e outrage over the song being played while the bellydancer was dancing. The filmmakers complied with their request. The MB had nothing to do with the issue. El Gomhoreya, which you sited earlier is a state run newspaper, not a private one. The heads of all state run newspapers, who previously spoke on behalf of the Mubarak regime were expected to be removed once elections took place. No one was shocked. Egypt no doubt has a long way to go on its path to democracy, however, calling it a dictatorship worse than that of Mubarak' is a lie.

If St Jerome and other experts are right, Israelis may have thought that 'pot' meant vulva, but actually they were saying cup. Or forehead. Or maybe something else.
