Egypt car sales affected by boycott over prices
Middle East today / Sweden / Stockholm:-A campaign calling on Egyptians to stop buying new cars to curb price rises has dented sales, but supporters say values must fall further to lure cash-strapped customers back to the forecourt.

Racists and bigots believe that diverse societies don’t work. Frustrated that their howling at the moon wasn’t enough, they’re now picking up weapons in an attempt to prove themselves right.

And yet after the initial alarm, the world carried on like before.
