Every single member on this board. In fact every citizen of the world needs to spend 30 minutes watching this interview.

There is now no excuse to remain ignorant of the facts.
Ala'a Al Aswany an Egyptian novelist who wrote the famous Yacoubian Building ( A book everyone interested in Egypt living under Mubarak regime should read), or watch the movie Yacoubian Building interviewed by Al Jazeera English.
An absolutely must see episode!
"The Nazis made me afraid to be a Jew, and the Israelis make me ashamed to be a Jew."
I watched it, Abu.. I think he's smart and likable..
However I don't think he is entirely correct.
Saudi Arabia and Egypt have been at Loggerheads before.. when Egypt flirted with communism during the Nasser years... on opposite sides of the civil war in Yemen.. and with the betrayal of sanctuary given by the Saudis for followers of Sayyid Qutb.
Yet, here we are with Saudi Arabia sending billions of dollars to Egypt in its time of need.
Egypt will NEVER be like Saudi Arabia.. and should not create this phony fear of "the Wahabbis".
