Question by bunny adderstein: What do you think about the situation in Egypt? Should we believe all the scaremongering?
Ive recently been on holiday in Egypt (Sharm El Sheikh) and although family members warned me not to go because it is ‘so dangerous’ there at the moment with the political instability, I found it peaceful and welcoming. I actually felt safer there than in the UK. When I spoke to the locals about safety in Egypt etc they said not to believe all the scaremongering in the news about Egypt in the West and that its all rubbish. What do you think about all this, was I just lucky or is it true that its all rubbish?

Yes egypt is not safe, maybe you were lucky but police & brotherhood kill christian civilians for fun.
So scary, I advice not to visit cairo or alexandria anytime soon.
Try liberal places like Eilat & Tel-aviv Israel (not the palestinian terretories)
