Wrong. The pyramids and other Egyptian monuments used to bring in tourist dollars, but no more. The so-called "Arab Spring" has killed the tourist industry in Egypt. Read the article in the May 2012 National Geographic magazine about this. The author of the article visited the tourist sites in Egypt. Gone are the tourists. Gone are the thousands of vendors who sold junk to the tourists. Egypt has killed its only real source of revenue.
