Egyptian Man Stabs American Who is a Pro-Palestinian Arabic Professor
An apparently less than brilliant Egyptian man stabbed one of the few Americans who might have been sympathetic to his cause:
Mahmoud Badr, 30, who holds a bachelor's degree in commerce, was arrested on Thursday after stabbing American academic Chris Stone in the neck outside the US embassy in Cairo. ...
Chris Stone was recently appointed head of the US-based Center for Arabic Study Abroad (CASA) by the American University in Cairo (AUC).
He has been praised for his pro-Palestine views and his interest in Arab culture.
