I can see why you are in a state of panic, I would be too. As for discrimination, yes I suppose that would be true. But that doesn't surprise me since most every country bases their visa requirements on your country of citizenship. I'm not saying that's fair, but it is common.

You said you have spoken with the Egyptian Embassy, so let me throw this out there--Did they give you the option to come into the Embassy and get visas on the spot? I know that might be an inconvenience, but at this stage I would also be very uncomfortable with sending away my passport.

Just an idea, I wish I could be of more assistance. If nothing else, I'll bring your post to the top of the heap. I will also suggest posting in the Africa/Middle East forum if you haven't done so already. Good luck and I hope you will get it all sorted out in time.
