Cairo, Egypt - (ReUterus): Top pyramidologists in Cairo's Arachaeology Ministry have insisted that none of the pharaohs were black or Arab "and that includes Tutankhamun, Cleopatra and all the other big name tourist attractions."
Dr Zahi Hawass told a press conference that the ancient Egyptian civilization celebrities were all "Arian whites, same as Jesus, Buddha and other notables."
"Tutankhamun was not black, and he wasn't an Arab," Hawas postulated today.
"Anybody promoting ancient Egypt was a black or Islamic civilisation is barking up the wrong tree.
"Sure some of the mummies look a bit dark about the gills these days but you'd expect that, wouldn't you, what with all that embalming fluid.
"As for the idea that Egyptians are Arabs and Africans, that is pure hype," Hawass added.
"All the DNA findings show that Egyptians and their ancestors are as much European Arians as anyone currently in the EU.
"Why else would our good neighbors the Israelis be allowed to play in the UEFA Euro Cup Football championships?"
