Sunbathing in Alexandria may soon be a thing of the past, at least if some Egyptian Islamist politicians have their way. clearpxl
Egypt's tourism industry has suffered a severe blow since the outburst of anti-regime demonstrations in January. But that did not stop the Freedom and Justice Party, the political wing of the Muslim Brotherhood, from demanding stricter regulations over what tourists can do and wear while visiting the country. The party is urging officials to ban skimpy swimwear and the consumption of alcohol on Egyptian street

Killing tourists by the busload is next. Oh well Egypt, you got the change you wanted.
thanks to comrade obama
a more hostile mideast.
if you thought that was possible.
What did Obama know, and when did he know it?
Looks like Egypt is tots up.
Yep, will Obama ever be called out on his support of overthrowing Mubarak?
Obama has repeatedly praised the “Arab spring”. I’ve always thought that we need to be careful what we wish for, because we don’t know what’s going to happen in these countries. We can’t just assume that some sort of parliametary democracy is going to replace the dictators.
It’s quite possible that the Muslim Brotherhood will take over in Egypt. That could be very dangerous to world peace, and to Israel.
Ditto in Libya. The rebels who are pushing out Qadafi are thought to be allied with Al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood. While Qadafi was a monster, can we really say it would be a good thing for Libya to be an Al Qaeda state????
We really have to reserve judgement and see what happens in these countries after these revolutions have run their course.
War is hell.
Not pyramids!!! Not guilty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A billion and a half dollars a year doesn’t buy as much country as it used to.
Obama himself incited the riots and insurrection over there when he did his mid-east tour. People forget that he called for and encouraged the change. ooops!
Oddly enough, Egyptian moderates and secularists may have no other alternative than to go Mubarak on the fanatics, hopefully hitting them so hard that they are completely put out of the picture, much less politics.
At the same time, there is no help to be found with socialist practices, as every one of those they embrace will make things worse for everyone. So their best bet, not ironically at all, would be for a version of the Tea Party. Much less government and low toleration for fanatics.
I have to say that my sillier side was thinking, Yes! ban the wearing of skimpy bikinis during alcohol consumption by the men in Egypt. ;)
Seriously, though, this is the beginning of a tragedy, not over anytime soon. Blame belongs to the socialists, such as our esteemed Golfer In Chief, his cohorts, and the islamists ad nauseum.
...credo is "Jihad is our way and death in the cause of Allah is our dream"And that's just in the Oval Office!

Thanks Dallas59.Sunbathing in Alexandria may soon be a thing of the past, at least if [the] Egyptian Islamist... Freedom and Justice Party, the political wing of the Muslim Brotherhood [gets] stricter regulations over what tourists can do and wear while visiting the country.To all -- please ping me to other topics which are appropriate for the GGG list.
How many readers would be surprised if these Islamic nutjobs mandated the destruction of the sphinx and disassembly of the pyramids?
But, hey, thank goodness we got rid of ol’ Hosni Mubarak....
Since taking office, name one thing Obama has done that has calmed the frazzled nerves of the Arabs in the Middle East and helped the Israelis to secure their position as the lone democracy in that region?
I cannot think of one, though I have tried. I think that’s because he knows he’s an Arab and he simply hates Israel.
The ignorant Americans that follow the NYTimes and the MSM have watched the Arab Spring and they think that they are seeing democracy in motion. They do not live in reality, anymore. They live in the utopian myth of all things Obama and believe every one of his lies.
They cannot fathom that this will not end well. And when it doesn’t, they would never even consider to implicate the One in any of this. They fall back and say, “Well, he TRIED HARD. It isn’t his fault that people died needlessly in Cairo and Tripoli with America’s help. We’re ALWAYS the good guys.”
Unless of course it’s Bush’s Shock and Awe in Iraq or the war in Vietnam. Then we’re the devil. War is only good when Obama is Commander in Chief.
It’s like we’re living in an alternate universe that the socialists have finally succeeded in making. I want to leave this universe and hide somewhere where it is safe, but I wouldn’t know where to run to.
Dearborn, Michigan already kills infidels (that would be YOU!) for such infractions. Obama currently working on an Executive Order instituting sharia law in place of the Constitution. Hey, don’t blame me! I knew who the prick was in 2007!
How dare you put a bikini photo of my young wife up on these boards!
As Chauncey Gardner might say "Spring brings lots of weeds, too"
The pyramids have survived 5000 years of weather, earthquakes, sand, neglect, and any number of regime changes.
Can they survive islam, which destroys all it touches?
Thanks for the nice visual. Reminds me of why I love the beach!!!!
Are Muslim women even allowed to go to the beach, even in a burka swimsuit????
The erosion of women’s rights in Egypt:
Well said. We are likely NOT seeing democratic revolutions. The odds are that Islamic fundamentalists will either take over or have a strong say in the new governments in these countries.
The liberal fantasy that these dictators are being overthrown, and will be replaced by some parliamentary democracy, are just fantasies. The reality will be ugly.
Separated at birth?
Actually that may BE the mechanical lurch AT birth!
Hilarious graphic lol.
Remember in 2001, the Taliban destroyed some ancient Buddha statues in Afghanistan. They were considered offensive to Allah, so they destroyed them. Dudes with bazookas took their target practice. The world was shocked that ancient treasures would be destroyed by religious fanatics.
Is there anyone here who did not accurately forecast the results of this "Arab Spring?
Anything is possible. It’s amazing how Leftists and Muzzies look so much alike! The resemblance is striking!
When do they start tearing down the Pyramids?
Are you trying to say that if some hot chick in a bikini walks down the Islamic part of town that some one might put a jihad on her?
When it is the women’s-only swim time!
Eh. It was inevitable. All those Arab Strongmen weren’t going to live forever.
Without foreign aid and tourism the Egyptians will be eating each other in a year— literally.
Question: if the Egyptian muzzies decide to blow up the Pyramids like they did the buddhist carvings, will the West have the cojones to stop them?
Have fun crawling back into the paleolithic age....
I wouldn't worry about that.
There won't many tourists visiting Egypt in the future because there won't be anything to see in Egypt. The Islamic fanatics now in charge there will be sure to destroy what is left of Egypt's past.
The liberal’s dream religion: “Other people/objects must be responsible for my lusts/drunkenness.”
Unfortunately, it is easier (and less convicting) to blame drunkeness on alcohol and lust on women’s clothing than it is to say, “Lord, I am a sinner. I confess (insert sin) “
Islam is a disease. Muslims are maniacs.
There is NO coexistence with them. Democracy and Freedom are concepts totally inimicable to them
THEY WILL KILL US IF WE DON’T KILL THEM FIRST.
“Unfortunately, it is easier (and less convicting) to blame drunkeness on alcohol and lust on womens clothing than it is to say, Lord, I am a sinner. I confess (insert sin)”
Yes, that’s true.
However, men being what they are, women parading their T&A around creates the near occasion of sin. We are bombarded by skin on all sides—see the hot bikini photo above—and that doesn’t make things any easier on men.
And no, before you start accusing me of siding with the mooselimbs and advocating burkas, I think the modesty of the American heartland during the 1950s would be completely appropriate and adequate.
Barak bin Hussein abu Obama al-Kenyata started a little earlier than that:
The Obammunist campaiging for Islamic separatist party in Kenya.
