On my way home last Friday I saw 5 boys, couldn’t be more than

14. They were running between cars in one of Zamalek’s busy streets trying to catch a look at women driving in short skirts or low-cut tops. They regrouped after the raid ended next to my car, I opened up my window and asked them with a smile “guys, wouldn’t you rather go and try to meet a girl”?

The most depressing part of that story is how the look on all their faces reflected the same thing: the idea has never crossed their mind!

Our society no longer breeds friendship, only perversion.
