When I was growing up in Cairo, not everybody used to do the Friday prayer thing. Lately it seems that EVERYBODY does it. A few weeks ago I went out around the Friday prayer time. The little mosque on my street was full and people were spilling out on the sidewalk. It took me 2 minutes to walk past the mosque and to my car during which I heard the Imam cursing Jews Christians and Muslims who dont pray (me). Had I hanged around a bit longer, I would have probably heard the fat fuck cursing the whole world (except ofcoarse the good people who are praying with him). I drove off and could not find a soul on the streets. State Security soldiers were praying, garbage collectors were praying... hardly any cars on the streets. Cairo was not like this a few years ago. Whatever happened to us?
