When completed, the Grand Egyptian Museum is going to be one of the largest museums in the world.
In what must be one of the most bizarre lawsuits in history, the plaintiff Ahmed Mohamed Mohamed Awad has listed charges that point to the idea that the museum is a Trojan horse meant to tell visitors and Egyptians that ancient Egyptian civilization was really built by Jews and that the Egyptians are under the control of Israel.
Here are the major charges in the lawsuit:
- Those who planned the architecture wanted to change the “identity of the characteristics of ancient and modern Egyptian civilization”.
- Through its architecture, those who planned the museum wanted to legitimize “the Sons of Israel” on Egyptian soil and the Jews’ (false) claim that they were the ones who built the ancient Egyptian civilization.
- The architecture confirms the (false) Jewish claims about the existence of Solomon’s Temple beneath the Al-Aqsa mosque, in order to continue with its destruction, in order to reach their alleged Temple and thus confirm their historic right to their presence on the conquered Palestinian lands.
- The wall of one of the corners that points towards Cairo, if extended, would reach the Wailing Wall and another wall reaches the oldest Jewish cemetery in the world (which is in Cairo). The cemetery is important historically for the Sons of Israel because it confirms their presence in Egypt since the beginning of the ninth century BC.
- The museum’s location, its design and its measurements make its horizontal angles reach the center of the Wailing Wall and Yad Vashem.
- Ditto the second stage of the construction, which was photographed using Google Earth, one of the walls “undoubtedly” points toward the Wailing Wall and the cemetery.
- Those who planned the museum deliberately planned it so that one of the angles between two walls is 27 degrees which somehow confirms a claim made by some studies that the Jews built the largest pyramid, because one of the passages inside the pyramid goes upwards in 27 degrees as well, and it’s exactly the number of the degrees that point from the pyramid to the Wailing Wall, anti-clockwise (whatever that means.)
- The decorations on the two main facades of the museum leave the impression that they appear to show the Star of David.
- There is a complicated explanation (consisting of five points) of how the museum’s design represents the Exodus of Jews from Egypt, after allegedly building the Egyptian civilization:
- The statue of Ramses II, who is associated by the Jews with the Exodus, will be placed, according to the plan, in a way that it will face towards the Wailing Wall.
- The same is true for the statues of all the great ancient kings of Egypt.
- The museum is divided into 6 inner spaces with 7 walls that represent the Menorah, which in turn represents God’s eye that protected the Jews at the time of the Exodus.
- The planners intended to place palm trees in front of the museum, although these palms hide the museum. These palm trees are supposed to represent the seventy palm trees that the Jews found on their way to the Promised Land that sustained them.
- The architectural design resembles or matches that of the Holocaust museums in Berlin and Jerusalem, a Jewish cultural center in San Francisco and Solomon’s Temple. This architectural design is meant to confirm the presence of the Sons of Israel in ancient Egypt and their Exodus from the area of the Giza pyramids.
It seems that the court ruled to stop the building until an “expert” checks the above mentioned claims, and 2,000 Egyptian pounds were paid to some “expert/s” to check them.
This is not the first time that Awad has attempted to stop the construction of this museum, which started in 2002. In 2012, perhaps when the lawsuit was initiated, he mentioned most of these charges and also alleged that the architect was Jewish and had studied under other Jews who had designed the "Holocaust museum" in Israel.
