Here we go the 2011 edition of this tedious never ending issue which at this time seems a little inappropriate in talking about the loaning of priceless objects to a dictatorship in the middle of a period of transfer of power which will bring one party elections later this year. The expected transfer of power will go from father Hosni Mubarak to his son Gamal and some will say it was an inspired choice.
The issue of who owns this pretty lady is secure now! The issue of running around the world attempting to shakedown desired objects from museum collections is another matter. Seeing if they can be shamed out of the objects desired can only serve to harden the resolve of those resistant institutions out of thoughts of loan.
