Arab Spring in Egypt: A nation of (mostly) morons

This clip is informative. Egyptian playwright Ali Salem is trying to explain to a pair of obviously incredulous TV hosts that Israel doesn`t send cancer, belts that cause infertility, dairy products that cause women to be sexually aroused, or killer sharks to their country.

The fact that they are sceptical, let alone that anyone could be stupid enough to believe such nonsense, tells us a lot about the state of contemporary `Arab Spring` Egypt.

Unfortunately, Ali Salem represents an older generation that is giving way to insane radicals.
