No, it is teenage boys, usually under 20, who are showing off for each other. Getting away with it is egyptian culture, unfortunately.

I live in Qatar, a very Muslim nation, and harassing a woman on the streets there is a total crime and will be punished on a woman's word. A taxi driver who offends a woman will be deported. Men will not even get into an elevator with a unacompanied woman. This crap in Egypt (hasn't happened to me on the streets to any degree that I make note of it and I live here). I have been here both as a Muslim and non muslim and have not been harassed in the streets (unless taxis count).

Recently, men have started to be criminally prosecuted here for harrassment and one that I know of got a lengthy jail sentence. It is illegal and I think it will be enforced more an more and that men are going to learn a new culture, just like americans learned not to pollute, whistle at women who looked pretty(harrassment of the 70's) and buckle up for safety. Yes, Egypt is behind the states in all of these things, but things are improving. Laws are being enforced now more than ever before to clear up the streets and make Egypt safer. It doesn't happen until people decide to make it a priority. I think Egypt is getting there on several counts, and I think it is great. Egypt has a young, healthy population that is capable of a lot. Unfortunately the last regime left them idle and without much purpose. I hope Mursi corrects these things in a way that moves Egypt forward. Like the WPA or something. I think that there needs to be a national project and a movement that will improve lives and give those young boys something to do than pick on innocent women.

Your culture is about sexual stuff, Look at the clubs that opened for practice sex with whores, even ur hotels, some sluts work there to entertain the guests LOL

speaking about sexuality??? and u italian?

Look at your dirty roman old civilizations it was about nudity and sex, thats all.

In egypt: ancient egyptians were respectful, most statues were wearing dress and No nudity was shown.

In italy: ancient romans were wh'res and sluts, most roman statues show women Naked and men with their genital organs.

From ancient times, We were better than and Respect is something egyptian

The guys who harrass women in crowded or empty places, are muslim teenagers,those teenagers belong to uneducated poor families.

perverted boys raised in streets, what you expect from him? respect?

No need to blame christians on the sexual harrassment

perhaps christian egy women are harrassed in churches too by monks and priests as its very famous actions in churches world wide

Everyone knows this happens, most women encounter it on a daily basis. I know women who will not leave their home alone and that is sad :(

Mothers need to teach their sons respect of all women and other men and women need to stand up to it if they witness anything in the street.

Egypt needs to sort this issue out because sadly it is one of the reasons that friends of mine will never visit Egypt again, sadly :(

filthy btch, my prophet had 11 wives, they were all mature, first wife was 40 years....he had no pedophilla

rapist u mean? malaka

my prophet never raped anyone, after wars, there were women who fell as captives, so the blessing of islam religion, it allowed muslims to pick up wives from them, Muslims dont rape or enslave them.....unlike your savage western armies who were raping captured women and enslaving them.

Look at bosnia kosova war: the filthy orthodox serbs raped thousands of women by orders of orthodox serb churches and even some priests were observing the actions to bless,Your western world was blessing the actions, cuz these women were muslims.

The mouthy americans say we saved the bosnians, lol@their saving....after serbs finished raping and killing muslims, they interverne to stop the serbs.

No boys in heaven, dirty goat.......Allah states in holy quraan that" Servant boys of angels gonna serve the humans in paradise"

its not even refered to human being.
