Impenetrable barriers separate the richest Egyptians from the rest of society.

They are real walls of cement and iron, not just symbolic walls describing class structures figuratively. The wealthiest class is increasingly becoming alienated from the rest of society. They have shut themselves in to enjoy the wealth of a country they know nothing about except what would fill up their coffers. This minority live in new housing compounds with names like Hyde Park, Beverly Hills, Palm Hills, Evergreen, Utopia, Kattamia Heights and others. It is a phenomenon unknown to Egypt before the 1952 revolution, whose 52nd anniversary is tomorrow.
