Mishiko left his people in Egypt2011-02-07 20:20
President of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili has now got the full right to put on Moses' chiton and dwell on the Promised Land. He has been given a unique chance to repeat the feat of the Biblical prophet. Even if his dreams about Abkhazia and South Ossetia are hopeless, it does not diminish the comparison. Neither did Moses see the Promised Land - that was the way God punished him for the displayed lack of belief; still, the prophet is known for leading the people from Egypt and bringing them where necessary. Now Mishiko has got a similar chance.
Not so long ago, during his speech on the air of the First Information Caucasian channel, Saakashvili compared Abkhazia and South Ossetia to the Promised Land. It is quite logic that thus he automatically compared himself to Moses the Prophet and Georgians to Jews led to the blessed land. However, according to the Holy Scripture, the Biblical prophet never entered the Promised Land but that's not important. Who could think that just two days later, Mishiko's Biblical comparisons would develop according to the Old Testament?
The Georgians who got stuck in Egypt because of the disorders turned to their authorities asking to get them out as soon as possible. The resorts of Sharm el-Sheikh and Hurghada stopped being attractive to them as soon as civil convulsions started in the land of pyramids. They can be easily understood: how can you think of having a rest if any moment you can be hit with a stone or robbed in some side street? A civil war is about to break out here, so foreign tourists are being urgently evacuated. Yesterday, a plane with Russian students started off back to Russia from Cairo.
What is the Georgian MFA doing for its fellow countrymen, however? It answers unwillingly that there is nothing to be afraid of and that people will come back by charter flights. The point is that the officers overlook the fact that the plane is not a bus and one cannot fly standing there. Besides, tickets to Tbilisi are over. But the Georgian diplomats are not going to take the mishap to heart.
Even commercial companies were shocked at Georgia's cynical attitude towards its own people. Airzena flight company came out with the initiative of taking the people out of Egypt but the Georgian MFA seems to be unwilling not only to stir a finger but to allow anyone else do the same and the company's initiative hung in mid-air.
"Additional flights have not yet been scheduled, for the Foreign Ministry has not turned to our company with a relevant problem", - Airzena is at a loss.
