You are in Egypt indeed!

 “The three are lying to her” is an Egyptian movie by the actress Yasmine Abdel Aziz. She performed the role of Nagiba, a hard working girl who got the best grades in the high school. As soon as she started studying at the university, she met with an spoiled guy who used her. Then, she met with another fake religious man who trade on religion, and he tried to use her too. Later, she met with a human rights activist who appears to care for others while he cares only for himself.  

In fact, I’ve always imagined Egypt as Nagiba, the good girl as Egypt was pioneer in many fields for long time. But, political Islamists and other appeared pretending to care for Egypt, while in fact they only care for themselves and their agendas. 
Egypt was pioneer in many fields and sciences. It was more developed than Europe, but now it’s full of contradictions that you can only find here!
