Nevine El-Aref sums up what happened on Friday 11 November on the Giza Plateau, and the loss for Egypt on that day
The "Ceremony of Love" that was scheduled to be held on the footsteps of the Great Pyramid of Khufu on 11 November, and the furore it created among Egyptologists, the public and the media, has raised questions over private functions on the Giza Plateau and meditation sessions inside the Great Pyramid, as well as the roots of misoneism -- a resistance to anything new -- in Egypt and the importance of the Khufu pyramid in New Age rituals.
It all began on 5 November when a Polish numerologist group posted on its website a call for people from all over the globe to come to the Great Pyramid of Khufu on 11 November for its so-called "Ceremony of Love".
