Egypt in the news on 25 October 2020

As we note in Speed Round, above, US President Donald Trump’s suggestion that Egypt could resort to a military strike on GERD is leading the conversation on Egypt this morning.

Also getting attention is a non-binding anti-abortion declaration Egypt signed as part of a US-promoted pact to “promote women’s rights and health.” The Guardian and the Washington Post are among those taking note.

Elsewhere, in reviewing Egyptologist Toby Wilkinson’s new book, A World Beneath the Sands, which details the exploitation of Egyptian history for years by the British and French, the Gray Lady asks the right question: “Where were the Egyptians when all this plunder of their heritage was taking place?” The book is also getting ink in the WSJ.
