Censorship strikes again
Once again Egyptian censors are steping in to protect the people from dangerous influences. Al-Jazeera reports that they are refusing the director Khaled Youssef permission to screen his latest movie Dukkan Shahata ("Shahata's shop") unless he removes a scene in the end that is apparently "warning Egyptians of total chaos and clashes between the people and the police" in the coming few years, unless something is done about the country's social ills. Dangerous thoughts indeed.
