    Renowned gay filmmaker John Greyson (Lilies, and who also directed several episodes of Queer as Folk) and his partner (an ER physician) have been held in a Cairo prison since sometime in August, without being charged. They were on their way back into Gaza, where his partner had been working as a doctor, and where Greyson was working on a film. He has been vocal in criticizing Israel's treatment of Palestinians. Reading between the lines, it appears the arrest was made at the behest of Israel.

    The article does not suggest or attempt to prove that Egypt is acting on behalf of Israel. It furthermore refers to the two as colleagues not boyfriends.

    If reading between the lines means pulling shit out of thin air, then yes, Israel, a country that Egypt hates, is responsible.

    The chances of Egypt doing something at the request of Israel are 0.

    Here we go again liberals, its either the fault of Global Warming, George Bush, Republicans, Conservatives, People of Faith, Jews, or anyone who doesn't tow the liberal agenda.

    Maybe the president US gays voted into office should cutoff foreign aid to Egypt.

    Look in the mirror liberal US gays, Israel isn't the problem, you are. You got what you voted for.
