Turmoil of any kind would discourage most tourists. There are the occasional thrill seekers or just plain ignorant types wandering around.

In theory, should it ever happen, would you speak up if the Islamic government decides to destroy everything pre-Islamic, or will you support the destruction of the great and historic sites of Egypt?

On the eve of the 2nd round of voting in a referendum on the Muslim Brotherhood-drafted, sharia-based constitution, violence has erupted with opponents of the constitution setting two buses ablaze which were used by Muslim Brotherhood supporters.

Turmoil is also going to kill business. The mustards are going to blunder for years, be a miracle if they wised up anytime soon. Too many delusional theocrats.

Islam should exist in the hearts of its faithful and not become a hammer to be wielded by politicians. Egyptians should listen to their own hearts.

its no good calling people names when you are shown to be wrong. I posted to you only a short time ago and pointed out that Egypt would suffer if you went down the radical muslim way. Egypt gets most of its income from tourism. Many in the country are now in fear of their lives and that includes moderate muslims. If the pressure on non muslims in Egypt increases there will be civil war. It seems to me that is what the muslim brotherhood is attempting to achieve. It will then give the brotherhood the excuse to wipe out the Copts and any other opponents. Many will die because of the greed of the muslim brotherhood, this a grasp for power and they are using religion to get what they want. and idiots like you will follow them untill it is your turn to be put against the wall. If you think your islamic republic is so great ask the people in Iran how much freedom they have, so many want to be freed of the yolk of the immams but they are to scared to try.

The more islamic you become the more you will be taught to hate westerners. You're a fine example yourself.
The Saudis will be your new masters soon!
