Americans Fascination of ancient dead Egyptians !!

American fascination of ancient dead Egyptians

More than 1200 years ago, two ancient Egyptian cities vanished from the face of the earth, due to natural disasters.  It took the French underwater archaeologist Frank Goddio, more that 40 years to discover the two missing ancient cities on the bank of Alexandria Egypt.  however in less than 40 days, president elSisi, the current pharaoh, sold two strategic islands to the Saudis. I went to meet Mr. Goddio at MIA where more than 250 pieces of his discoveries are on display in Egypt’s Sunken Cities exhibit. He was enthused, proud, informative and introspective. I asked him about his fascination of dead Egyptian and Egypt ancient history where Egyptians themselves don’t really care that much or don’t even bazar. Most Egyptians never visited the Pyramids, Egyptians are consumed by their modern Pharaohs more the ones lived thousands of years ago.

The former Egyptian Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq has given a phone interview on live TV, denying reports that he was kidnapped.

Mr Shafiq’s family had voiced fears of foul play, saying they were unable to contact him after he landed in Egypt.

He was deported from the UAE on Saturday after five years in exile.

The deportation came after Mr Shafiq stated his intention to run for the presidency of Egypt in 2018. He said on TV he was now reconsidering the plan.
