BBC: Egypt bans 'too religious' Matrix

Egypt has banned Matrix Reloaded because it may cause "crises" and "harm social peace". The press complained that it "reflects Zionist ideas, and promotes Jewish and Zionist beliefs."  On the one hand I appreciate the need for cultural sensitivity but this seems rather extreme. Too bad they named the city Zion in the movie.
