The animal lover inside me cannot but react especially in front of a dog. My dogs suffered for too long justice Luc by with me In a neighborhood inside a city in a country within a culture that looks at dogs as impure. In Egypt it should not be different . Something I always bow with respect whenever I visit turkey is the status of dogs and cats there. I am will be a happy street dog living in Turkey . Clean, comfortable and very well fed. I strongly believe that a country with such treatment to dogs and cats is a country that builds human beings.

In my country , the moment the dog passes by someone’s side a big scream is heard as if a monster appeared or a plague is hitting in the area. Some months ago , they announced for a prize in Gaza for 10 shekels for each dog that is killed.not many years ago , all the street dogs in Jericho and other cities were poisoned to death.

I did not expect dogs and cats to be better treated in egypt , where it is really hard to feel human beings, but yet, despite the miserable situation. Of humans and animals , animals, in the case of dogs had the privilege of life . That dog and his tribe in alKarnak probably were here since the Pharos. They as the people are not Pharos anymore , but they live with n the accepting fact of life turbulences with modesty that is unbelievably overwhelming .. it makes you forget all the annoying things you pass by or endure. You pass by a starving dog and he still sits in-front if you peaceful .you talk to people , pass them by, you always find welcoming and appreciating gestures … you cannot but think that at the end it is always about people …. and animals.
