31. Egyptian Minister wants to burn Israeli books
Brod ,   USA   (05.14.08)
This shows that peace does not exist among Islamist-Jihadists. As former Al Azhar University Professor of Quranic Interpretations, Omar Abdel Rahman, says "Jihad and killing are the head of Islam. If you take them out, you cut off the head of Islam." (p.24, "Islam and Terrorism" [2002] by Mark A. Gabriel, PhD).
32. #29
Hilda ,   US   (05.14.08)
You comment was stupid. We are talking today. The only things they write today are anti Israel and anti Jewish tirades. This only shows that the so called peace between the two countries is very thin and was only done because Sadat was a pragmatic person who wanted his land back. He , however, paid with his life for even that overture.
33. Appointment to UNESCO secretary-general????
Lina ,   USA   (05.14.08)
You must be kidding. Don't degrade UNESCO with this low life. Sad state of affairs when a Culture Minister boasts about burning books.
34. Farouk Hosni Is An UNCULTURED Person.
Maansingh ,   The Netherlands   (05.15.08)
Farouk Hosni said he "would burn Israeli books himself if found in Egyptian libraries ". THIS shows that Farouk Hosni is an uncultured person. This person is supposed to be the Egyptian Minister of Culture. An UNCULTURED person sitting on the post of Culture. That this person is a member of the Egyptian Government -- alarm bells should ring in capitals around the world about the culturedness of the Egyptian Government. This UNCULTURED person should definitely NOT become the boss of UNESCO, which embodies education, science and culture in the world.
35. #19 No!, Farouk Hosni is a famous joke
Mubarak appointed him for bashing Islamists. They had the poor man got brain transplantion, now his head is full of vacuum, and created the culture ministry to fit his ability. Those who knows what is going on in Egypt, I don't believe that Shalom Cohen is one of them, appreciate that.
36. After UNRWA, comes UNESCO: Happy UN!
normasmediainsightwo   (05.15.08)
After UNRWA, here is another figure for UNESCO. This time from Egypt. Minister of CULTURE "would burn the Israeli books himself in found in Egyptian libraries." Is that is the kind of Peace [between peoples] that we are looking for?! Peace requires a culture of Peace so that Peace becomes genuine. What if a Minister of CULTURE teaches otherwise? Is this kind of figures UNESCO is looking for? Shameful. Peace!
37. Farouk Hosni is Minister of 'Book Burning' Culture.
Stupid people desire to remain stupid. For them applies : ignorance is bliss.
