Good job! I hadn't heard of Adalah-NY before this, very interesting.

Thank's guys! It means a lot hearing compliments from you. Qunfuz, yes I've heard, very exciting and what an honour! I hope he sends me a blender :)

Wassim, responding to the call you issue, I'd like to call your attention to one Arab whose business is worth boycotting.
Hussein Salem from Egypt, who was formerly in the Egyptian intelligence, now co-owns the East Mediterranean Gas company alongside the Israeli Merhav group.
Meanwhile, he owns the JolieVille hotels and resorts group, which has hotels across Egypt, including in Sharm El-Sheikh and Luxor. According to the JolieVille site company profile (http://www.jolieville-hotels.com/company_profile.php) Salem's HKS Group also provides the city of Sharm El Sheikh with all its water needs: "As well a Water Desalination plants, Water Purification plants, and water Treatment plants, located in Sharm El Sheikh, which produce and supply all water needs for Sharm El Sheikh City."
Each can draw his/her own conclusions on whether or not to re-enter Sharm ever again. My advice is that if you are to do so, make sure to take plenty of water with you!
