At Egyptian Dig, Families Pillage as Police Relatives “Guard” Site

Raymond Johnson, the director of the archaeological mission from the University of Chicago in Luxor, said: “This is a disgrace, it’s a real tragedy. After the meeting with the minister they increased the number of guards, but many of them are from the same families as those that pillage the site.”

That will work out nicely.


Mubarak protected the antiquities. For that reason alone he was preferable to the fanatic scum who have succeeded him. (Yes, he was a thug. Boo-hoo. We’re talking about Egypt. You were expecting who, Angela Merkel?)
