Samah Anwar recommends "nuking" the Egyptian protesters
Egyptian actress Samah Anwar is outraged by protesters in Cairo’s Tahrir Square to the point that she has called on officials to “burn them to the ground because they are destroying Egypt.”
Mass popular protests against Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak since 25 January may usher in a new leadership in Cairo.
“If the situation required authorities to use fighter planes and nuclear bombs against them, then no time should be wasted in order to save Egypt” said Samah.
The comments made by Samah provoked harsh attacks against her on the social networking internet website Facebook. People posted comments describing her calls to burn the citizens of her own country as simply brutal and inhumane, and should make people rethink the roles stars play in their lives .
One Facebook commenter said that he used to watch Samah’s numerous television dramas and plays, but after her inappropriate remarks he has lost all respect.
Many others posted negative criticism about Samah, accusing her of disrespecting the rights of citizens to speak freely.
