But on closer inspection, both kiosks openly stock the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a notorious anti-Semitic text that purports to be an account of Jewish plans to rule the world, but was actually written by Tsarist secret police in 1905.

They also sell Hitler's autobiography, Mein Kampf.

in another part of the article

But it's clear that some publishers in Egypt do not practise the kind of respect for religious groups that Mr Mousa is calling for from the West.

This silly BBC correspondent doesn't seem to realise the difference between the Danish cartoons (not that I care about either of these issues) and the sale of Mein Kampf by book vendors in Cairo. Not only that, but he might be surprised to realise that Mein Kampf is on sale at Amazon and the "Protocols" are available freely on the internet through a quick search on Google. Now, did his erudite majesty find anyone drawing satirical pictures of Moses or Abraham in Cairo? go away and do some real journalism.
