According to several news reports, Egypt will start DST on midnight 
after Thursday, April 30, 2015.
This is based on a law (no 35) from May 15, 2014 saying it starts the 
last Thursday of April.

This means we will to change the rule to "lastThu 24:00s" instead of 
"lastFri 0:00s".
Clocks will still be turned back for Ramadan, but dates not yet announced.
