Egypt. Fayoum. Tunis. 2013. (Translation of the written text below) - Where are the human rights in Egypt? I invite the whole world to come and see the poverty in Egypt. - This opinion shows
Egypt in a bad way. You'd better not put it in the book because the state security people who are responsible for Egypt, might become suspicious of you. - You cannot photograph a woman while she is sleeping because a man might see it. - Our country, Egypt, is the country of safety and security, and all is well here. Long Live Egypt! - I agree. - Egypt has potential, it is rich, but the government is not fair to all the people. - This opinion gets you involved in politics; it's better if you ignore it, you're better off not publishing it. - Egypt is not poor. - Sleeping and eating are private things. You should not be exposing them, they should be hidden. - I'm not really bothered by the idea. - Wrinkles in the face. - How can you know this if she's wearing the niqab? - Not true. This is true: 1. Sunna from the prophet, may God bless him. 2. Chastity of the Muslim woman. - Plastic bag from Al Orman. - Not true, because the bag has "Mecca Clothing Store" written on it.
