Banking Issues (Cairo)

I am trying to find a bank that will do wire transfers in dollars to US banks. One that will also accept my MasterCard to get cash from. It is a cash card that I have deposits going to all in dollars and i need to keep some money in dollars and the cash I get out in Egyptian Pounds.
I am in Giza and am looking for a larger one that has branches all over. Misr Bank Manager told me he does not have to accept anything since the revolution and just ignored me after that.
Is there a good bank to open business and personal accounts with? Do you know if I can keep my business account in $ and my personal in EP?
My mastercard will not work in any ATM's outside of the US so i know I have to go in and get money.
