I've written before about the rise in anti-Semitic comments I hear here. In London they come from large companies and from individuals. One of the most 'popular' posts on this blogs remains my post about Holocaust denier 'Lady' Michele Renouf .
Since anti-Semitism has become so 'acceptable' in London, it's not surprising it's 'acceptable' for a leading archaeologist in Egypt to make stupid comments about Jews.
But now they are taking things one step further in Egypt - Jews have been banned from using the Maimonides Synagogue in Cairo for prayer. It's been declared a piece of Egyptian cultural heritage, an 'antiquity' and no longer allowed to be used as s synagogue by the few Jews that were not hounded out of Egypt ...
Like many other archaeologists, I thought that the character Zahi Hawass was modelling himself on in the Indian Jones movies was Indie. Clearly we were wrong - it's the Nazis.
Update - I've closed comments as life's too short to listen to nonsense from some people.
