New issue of Cairo is online

Readers of might be interested in Cairo's analysis of the fallout of the Sharm Al Sheikh bombings, an interview with radical writer Sayed Al Qemani, who gave up his writing career and recanted after receiving a death threat, a campaign against the way the ministry of tourism depicts Egypt that got started online, a voxpop on the Muslim Brotherhood, a look at how MEPI is not working out in Egypt or perhaps a new Adel Imam comedy about living next door to the Israeli embassy. There's a lot more here too.

Fun for the whole Arabist family.
