Somebody get Ridley Scott and Rupert Murdoch on the phone cause those don’t look like white people to me.
Czech archaeologists have unearthed the tomb of a previously unknown queen believed to have been the wife of Pharaoh Neferefre who ruled 4,500 years ago, officials in Egypt said Sunday.
The tomb was discovered in Abu Sir, an Old Kingdom necropolis southwest of Cairo where there are several pyramids dedicated to pharaohs of the Fifth Dynasty, including Neferefre.
Protests continue in Egypt and this raw video shows you how serious and deadly things have gotten. Hit the jump for the raw video.
This video left me speechless, simply for the fact that according to the videographer these are not Israeli-born citizens but dual citizens from the States. They are obviously drunk but I feel they are expressing their true feelings for their Democratically elected president and those feelings are rather disturbing. Not enough is being said about the backroom wranglings that have been taking place between both of these governments, which are normally on the same page. Well, Obama heres what they think about you.

OK, so they tell us something that “we’ve” known all along, does that make “them” geniuses? Now, if they would only return the body then everyone will be happy campers, f*cking tomb raiders!
Dec. 17, 2008 — An inscribed limestone block might have solved one of history’s greatest mysteries — who fathered the boy pharaoh King Tut.
“We can now say that Tutankhamun was the child of Akhenaten,” Zahi Hawass, chief of Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities, told Discovery News.The finding offers evidence against another leading theory that King Tut was sired by the minor king Smenkhkare.
Hawass discovered the missing part of a broken limestone block a few months ago in a storeroom at el Ashmunein, a village on the west bank of the Nile some 150 miles south of Cairo.
Once reassembled, the slab has become “an accurate piece of evidence that proves Tut lived in el Amarna with Akhenaten and he married his wife, Ankhesenamun,” while living in el Amarna, Hawass said. Continue reading
OK, so when the hell is the rest of the world gonna return the stolen artifacts from Egypt that make up the majority of these museums collections?
NEW YORK (AP) – Dozens of ancient artifacts stolen by a former U.S. Army helicopter pilot were returned to the Egyptian government on Wednesday during a ceremony in Manhattan.
Officials said the items, including several small urns on display at the ceremony, came from the Ma’adi archaeological site outside Cairo and date to 3600 B.C. or earlier.
“When (the military officer) stole these items from Egypt, he robbed a nation of part of its history,” said Peter J. Smith, head of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s New York office. “The repatriation of the Ma’adi artifacts reunites the people of Egypt with an important piece of their cultural heritage.”
Also on hand were Egyptian Ambassador Hussein Mubarak and Attiya Radwan, head of the Central Department for Upper Egypt Monuments. Continue reading
As the candidates slug it out to take on the most monumental task in the history of the world, as we embark on the seventh anniversary of 9/11 let us not forget the MANY unanswered questions that linger around these events and how the majority of the world view the ‘US’ role in the attacks. It is not only the ‘Muslim’ world that has credible questions about the validity of these attacks, there are legions of Americans and Europeans who have been at the forefront, presenting scientific research and eyewitness accounts that dispute the “official” line about what took place on that Tuesday morning seven score years ago. With everything the Bush Administration has demonstrated so far, why would people find ‘this’ hard to believe. Wake up before it’s too late. We now return you to your normal broadcast.

CAIRO — Seven years later, it remains conventional wisdom here that Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda could not have been solely responsible for the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and that the United States and Israel had to have been involved in their planning, if not their execution, too.
This is not the conclusion of a scientific survey, but it is what routinely comes up in conversations around the region — in a shopping mall in Dubai, in a park in Algiers, in a cafe in Riyadh and all over Cairo.
“Look, I don’t believe what your governments and press say. It just can’t be true,” said Ahmed Issab, 26, a Syrian engineer who lives and works in the United Arab Emirates. “Why would they tell the truth? I think the U.S. organized this so that they had an excuse to invade Iraq for the oil.” Continue reading
