And now for something completely different.....or, how others see us!
I recently stumbled across this film on "You tube". The interesting part starts at 2:03:45.
This is an Egyptian film portraying what is claimed to be a true story of an Egyptian dancer involved in espionage against the British.
The acting and production values are laughable. Note that the extras' guns don't appear to be firing...even blanks lol.......and one suspects that the Union Jack / Union Flag is only flying so that one of the actors can pull it down!
But there is a serious aspect to this film. It shows how anti-Western propaganda is still a popular source of entertainment in the Arabic (Muslim??) world.
As Robert Burns said..."Oh wad some power the giftie gie us, to see oursels as ithers see us."
