Well this was big words and this is the essence of this topic.
Well what you describe is right they did destroy and sell important
historic things, but what country has not done that? And special when
we come to religion, when a stat is hold by imperials that force their
religion and way of living on them they will do many stupid things to
get ride of there occupant, and maybe they destroyed this temple because
you should not have the richness of them when they self could not?
As I written before, for your countries to have saved those object the
whole world inclusive Dr. Hawass is grateful but this is a time no longer
existing... Cant imaging that we see the Germans as Nazis anymore
Or British as Colonists
I understand that you British people have a hard time to understand this
because you have never been occupied by a foreign country and have
never lived under those circumstances...
But when you say that its all abut Dr. Hawass then I understand
when there is a new man in his position things are different...
Just because you dont like the man you want give him credit
for bringing the stolen relics home! (Sounds like the Arafat discussion
Is not your heart in the ancient history of Egypt? because its not
the Ancient history of "Europe the conquer" we are interested in
And we are not talking abut emptying this Museum we are talking abut
very important key relics like the Bust of Nefertiti who should stand
beside her King
Why are the half that dont like him so more important then the
half who do like him? Could it be that the half who dont like him
are Germans, British and France Egyptologist ???
And you all go by my questions in nice way to avoid the
conflict... If there was some truth in our history and Excalibur
was indeed put in a stone... and this stone hade been removed
from England when you where occupied would you not
want it back???? dont you think that is should belong to You!!
And to this crap abut the museum in Cairo... If you invested so
many million £ in tomb robbing why not invest a few in the Museum
and make sure that the Museum could take care of this relics.
But there is no willing to do that because you cant give
your imperial pride the needs trough a fine helping hand like that
I am truly sorry to see that you have such pride in your dark ages
of you countries history and to finally release that you are not
true ancient Egyptian history lovers but its all abut imperial
thinking and that you still want to be the masters of the world
I know this is strong word but what can I say. When people
makes this a personal vendetta against one man as the
final excuse to not do what is right....
