Hawass Misses Old Order

In a self-serving account of how the Egyptian museum was saved from extensive looting, current Egyptian Minister of Antiquities Zahi Hawass also makes the following revealing statement:

"Once you would not dare to show no respect to a government minister, now they come and spit in your face if they do not like what they hear."


Others might consider that lack of respect a reasonable demand for accountability.

Of course, it remains to be seen how accountable the new Egyptian Government will be to the Egyptian people. Only time will tell whether the army allows real reform or if any changes are just cosmetic ones.

I for one believe it's time for Pharaoh Hawass to retire to his pyramid.
