Sweet! People are catching on. I'm surprised there was anyone there, as tourism understandably is in the pits. Must have been a Muslim. If there's any group that needs to know about astrotheology, it's the Muslims (and Christians).

Egypt tourism slump blamed on Islamist rule

Quote:
FOR millennia, the Sphinx guarding Cairo's famed pyramids has gazed upon the rise and fall of civilisations and the passage of countless visitors.

Now though, the ancient statue is looking on an absence of foreign tourists.

They have been chased away, the coterie of local souvenir hawkers and guides in its shadow say, by the political turmoil swirling over the country.

On Saturday, as polling stations nearby received voters for the second round of a referendum on an Islamist-backed constitution, the Giza Necropolis, as the site comprising the Great Sphynx and the pyramids is known, was all but empty.

"Currently there is no tourism in Egypt," grumbled Adel Anwar, the 32-year-old owner of a trinket stall.

"The new Islamist government has no experience in managing the state," he said. "The Islamists care only about their interests, not us. They forget about everyone else."

Let us not forget that the Muslim Arabs are not the original inhabitants of Egypt and that the Coptic Christians are.
