Cairo Billboard Greeting : Bruce Peck Adventures

Cairo Billboard Greeting

This advertisement was the first thing to greet us in Cairo as we disembarked from the plane. It’s a billboard for Mobilini, a cell phone company here that quotes Obama speaking about Egyptian revolutionaries.

The only problem is that, while the sentiment is positive, the quote doesn’t seem to be real.

It seemed odd to us that any American President would explicitly say that American children should be like people from any other country. So we googled and googled for where the quote came from and this is the closest that we could  find: “Today belongs to the people of Egypt, and the American people are moved by these scenes in Cairo and across Egypt because of who we are as a people, and the kind of world that we want our children to grow up in.”

Maybe I should send an email to Mobilini letting them know!

    I wouldn’t put it past that Commie to wish our children were Muslims like him and his Fascist cohorts…

    Welcome Everyone
    Thanks for checking out my writing blog . My name is Dillan.
    I have worked since high school in this niche. My interest in writing started at a young age. I wrote short stories as a child and eventually went on to work with my school newspaper.
    This early tryst into journalism eventually led me to academic writing. There is plenty of work for professional writers. I specialize in essays, but have the skills to do all types of academic writing.
    Email me for more information about rates and a price quote. I’m looking forward to helping you.
