I suggest to think and look carefully about Egypt at the moment. The country is far from being stable, nobody knows what the future will bring. Every single person is looking for business and money. Working has another quality here.

Yes, anybody can move to Egypt. Thats not the problem. I mean the political situation is difficult. With the new constitution nobody knows how life will be here. Thats the main problem: nobody knows about work, life for forgeigners, new laws etc. Sure there are foreigners, but also many people leave. I wish you good luck.

Fuck Americas Evil tho. They plan just too weak and everyone and the only thing the future holds is for the already rich people to have all the money and everyone else to just start off here. I would rather live in a state of poverty then be a part of this greedy community that's so full of laws that everything you do cost money and every time you break 1 of their 1,000,000 lies you get fined hundreds and hundreds of dollars just so the courts can become richer. When is anyone going to care about justice? I believe we will see justice Wayne Jesus returns.
