  1. Another country living in the dark ages, and the list of countries we all should actively blank-boycott by all means keeps growing

    Agreed, some times is mostly our fault by visiting and even investing money in those countries , the gay community should be more united and boycott those assholes at the en of the day it’s all about money!

  3. There has been an up0surge in Islamism since the new government.
    read the headline
    “Egypt arrests five Misunderstanders of Islam planning jihad mass murder of British tourists”

  4. Any LGBT who spend any money (directly or indirectly) in countries like this need their heads examining.

  5. I can’t help but wonder what prompted the police to raid that particular apartment.

      I reported this story for OutQ News. They were reportedly arrested because police thought they “looked gay” from the way they walked and their general mannerisms. I’m still trying to get updates about what has happened to them since.

  6. Good News ! This spells the end of Muesli and his repressivebrand of Islam ! His predecessor used the same nonsense legislation to attack the gays and within a year his regieme fell and the bastard died !

    1. El Hamdulilla…..on 3rd July a few days off ramadan ! the Egyptian Army has just replaced “Family man Muesli” as the legitimate ruler of egypt!
      I sincerely hope that His Kharki clad excelency will never hold another election in Mersa! Religious people should not have the vote! Democracy is NOT islamic! It just causes trouble for Terroni . . . .Lets have a fun loving Khadive

    So much for the Arab Spring then. As I said all along it will be followed by a long Arab Winter.

    1. Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. It is depressing, and makes one cynical to see so many revolutions and uprisings against tyrants descend into regimes as bad, or worse than the ones they replaced.
      Mugabe started as a socialist, but became a vicious, hate filled megalomaniac. Russia has become a corrupt, greedy autocracy. Even the French Revolution became perverted and rotten.
      Lack of support and good diplomacy by the rest of the world has failed the Arab Spring. The financial crisis has caused our politicians to take their eyes off the ball.
