Complaint re teaching that Israelites built pyramids,7340,L-3370258,00.html
Head of the SCA, Zahi Hawass "has Hawass filed an official complaint to the Egyptian attorney general of Egypt against a Cairo high school for teaching the students that it was the Israelites who built the pyramids. Hawass, prominent figure in Egyptian culture and around the Arab world, criticized the school curriculum for 'insisting that the Jews built the pyramids and highlighting the fact that those who refused to partake in the building were physically tortured.'
The longstanding debate over who built the five pyramids of Giza, West of Cairo, was rekindled at the first official visit of an Israeli delegation to Egypt, in 1977."
