Serious Charges Leveled Against Hawass


by Peter Tompa

More charges have been leveled against Zahi Hawass. Western archaeologists

have held Hawass up as some sort of role model for their crusade against

collectors, but the fall of the Mubarak regime, another picture from Egypt

has emerged. See

Are the allegations of cronyism, corruption and sexual harassment true? And,

if they were widely known within the archaeological community before now as

it seems, why have Western archaeologists so idolized Hawass?

E ancora:

Egyptian bust

"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:

Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"

Nothing beside remains. Round the decay

Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare

The lone and level sands stretch far away.

Please ignore Dr Hawass!

He does not represent us Egyptians.

Tell him that he must leave now.

The man is a clown and a tramp!

Email from Egypt, doing the rounds since Zahi Hawass's government


Percy Bysshe Shelley's poem about the colossal statue of Ramesses II, which

now sits in the British Museum, is a warning to kings and tyrants. Empires -

no matter how mighty - fade.

These words apply to Presidents and to Egyptologists, equally. In light of

events in Egypt, Dr Zahi Hawass - Secretary General of The Supreme Council

el-Hanafy, a graduate from Cairo University who carried his school

certificates in a folder - said of Dr Hawass: "He doesn't care about us. He

just cares about propaganda." Demonstrators were back today calling for an

end to "corruption" and "nepotism" in the SCA. More protests are planned for

collection and other museums has been contained by the army. Like many

Ministers retained from last week, he walks a fine line to retain his

In primo luogo ci andrei piano su tutta la vicenda e su tutti questi "giovani leoni" .

In secondo........avessero ragione e questo fosse davvero un "di tutto e di più", mi chiedo cosa dovrebbero fare i nostri studenti universitari ai loro "baroni".........

ciao, notizie molto interessanti, grazie per la segnalazione..

Sicuramente chi ricopre quelle posizioni in certi regimi dovrà scendere a dei compromessi...certo le accuse che gli hanno mosso sono pesanti....speriamo non siano generate dalla gran voglia di cambiamento ......(una sorta di caccia ai "nobili"...)...

Di sicuro, a parte pochi, la non stavano bene .....
