To discount rumors Gameel el-Batouti may have been after insurance money...the family took cameras on a tour of his country assets. THIS was to be the co-pilot's retirement home...a two story villa outside Cairo. "NOW YOU'VE SEEN HIS CHILDREN, HIS HOMES, THERE'S NOTHING ELSE YOU CAN SAY ABOUT GAMEEL EL-BATOUTI"..HIS SON KAREEM SAYS..."IN SHORT, THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH HIM." What has rankled most here is the suggestion by investigators that el-batouti's apparent uttering of a prayer that is ued a hundred times a day by Moslems means he was about to crash the plane. Much of the blame is being laid on the foreign press. "IF THE INVESTIGATION FINISH AND THEY SAY GAMEEL BATOUTI WAS A VERY GOOD MAN, DID NOT DO IT. WHO , IS ANYBODY FROM YOU GOING TO COME BACK TO HELP US TO GO AND GET OUR DIGNITY BACK? And in that they have the backing of the Egyptian government. NABIL OSMAN, GOVERNMENT SPOKESMAN "THE MEDIA I FEEL IS NOT GIVING EVERYONE TIME TO REFLECT, TO INVESTIGATE WITHOUT ANY PRESSURE." Egyptians are deeply proud of their history and culture...and many feel they are being taken for granted by the west.
