The Egyptian minister of culture

Unfortunately, the Egyptian media gave an impression that the Egyptians are depressed because Farouk Hosny, the Egyptian minister of culture, failed to be the general manager of UNESCO on September 22, 2009!!!

No one in Egypt is sad for that, except Farouk Hosny himself!!!

Mr. Farouk is 71 years old & he is a minister of culture since 1987 (22 years ago)!!!

He has a lot of strange announcements which provoked the Egyptian street. So, what will this aged minister does in the UNESCO?!

On the light side, today 13th of October, 2009; on this day in 1988, the international Egyptian novelist Naguib Mahfouz won the prize of Nobel in literature.

Although, I disagree with the novels of Naguib Mahfouz, but I can't deny that he was one of the most magnificent writers of Egypt & the Arabic world.
