Egyptian newspapers and magazines (Al-Usbu`, for example) have been reporting on the Chief cleric of Al-Azhar Islamic University. Apparently, the guy, who loves banning books when he is not praising the president of Egypt, is losing it. In recent months, he threw a shoe at a journalist; slapped another journalist, and Al-Hayat reported on the first page (tomorrow) that he kicked out a female journalist from his office, and yelled curses at her, accusing her parents of not raising her properly.
