My friend Natasha Ghoneim went to Cairo this summer, as she does most summers. But this time she went with the goal of finding some of the untold stories of the revolution. As Egypt’s revolution made clear, human rights are not something guaranteed to anyone, not just in the Middle East but in many places in the world.
So what about the animal rights in a world with limited human rights?
Arabs don’t have a lot of indoor pets, but outdoors, animals remain their friends and often their livelihood, especially horses. At a place thousands of tourists go every year. This is one of Natasha’s stories, which resulted in an Australia animal relief organization stepping in to help.
