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!
