ZenTiger Egypt needs to stop meddling in the affairs of other countries

The German President condemned Egypt's recent demands regarding German property, and suggested that they stay out of German affairs entirely.

This diplomatic row came about as Egyptians demanded the "return" of a 3,400-year-old bust of the wife of the Sun King Akhenaten, which has been in German hands since 1912.

Now the Egyptians want it back, if not for keeps, then at least on loan to mark the opening in 2012 of a new Grand Egyptian Museum, near the Pyramid at Giza. If the Egyptian Museum in Berlin does not agree, says Zahi Hawass, there will be trouble. “We will make the lives of these museums miserable,” the secretary-general of the Supreme Council of Antiquities in Egypt said. “It will be a scientific war.”
