One comment on “The Mummy - (1999 movie)

  1. 14:45 This might be an obscure joke where the Egyptian curator is mispronouncing a Yiddish word. In large culturally integrated cities (like New York, where I'm from) Yiddish phrases become part of the common vocabulary. One example is a friend of my family that described his pilgrimage to Mecca as a "schlep."

    BTW in Islam Jews are "People of the Book" and are historically treated with some degree of tolerance, though how much varies depending on time and location. http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/the-treatment-of-jews-in-arab-islamic-countries
