Tourism brings corruptionPosted: January 16, 2012
Yes.. that is true. No, not the relatively benign European and American tourists who bare their mid-rif while guzzling beer. The corrupt tourism is from the Gulf & Arabian Peninsula. These tourists, unaccompanied men, account for almost all the traffic in prostitution, as well as for a serious percentage of secret and heavy drinking. The stories are horrific. The women, mostly victims of circumstance, have no recourse in a corrupt system of justice that will further victimize them, and will not press their cases.
The question is, will the right and honorable MB & Salafi politicians do something to curb the behavior of the Gulf Arabs or turn a blind eye. Or worse, blame the victims. If their reaction to the Army’s brutal treatment of women protesters recently is any guide, do not hold your breath. These men will not stand up for Egypt’s women.
