Reading what the Egyptian press writes about this event, there actually seems to be little hope things will change...

Reminds me of what a young french woman with Tunisian background answered me some years ago: "Homosexuality? That's a Christian invention, it doesn't exist in the Muslim world".

The weight of education and cultural background. Guess we need more than one Arab spring to solve this...

Signed, of course.

Thanks Freya
