Image More Important than Substance?
This is quite revealing. Egypt's own protection of its cultural heritage at home is a complete mess, but it's so protective of its image, that it's pressured the Chinese to demolish a knock-off of the Sphinx that has been used as a movie backdrop. Will Egyptian Cultural authorities also demand that any MOU with the US contain a stipulation that the Luxor Hotel and Casino be demolished as well?

National Geographic News had a great photo of a Sphinx being barged through Hong Kong harbor. At that time Dr. Hawass promised not to target Las Vegas hotels.
