Egyptian Islamists ready to declare war on fun

Azza al-Jarf, a candidate for the Muslim Brotherhood, told supporters: ‘Tourists don’t need to drink alcohol when they come to Egypt; they have plenty at home.

‘They came to see the ancient civilisation, not to drink alcohol.’…

Influential cleric Yasser Bourhami has called for ‘halal tourism’ – which includes restrictions on Westerners.

Speaking to private television network Dream TV, he said: ‘A five-star hotel with no alcohol, a beach for women – sisters – separated from men in a bay where the two sides can enjoy a vacation for a week without sins.

‘The tourist doesn’t have to swim with a bikini and harm our youth.’
