Burn it, so he can stay….!!!
Are we going to burn Egypt??
Are we going to separate into two camps, one with a crescent and one with a cross?
Are we to discard our Egyptian Identity?
Is it going to be “Formerly known as Egypt”?
Are we going to separate Egypt into a Wahabi Saudi colony and US colony?
And, for what and for whom? For the father and the son?
For those who want it burnt so nobody else could stay or rule.
I am not denying the presence of a problem, there is a problem but will it be Iraq again in Egypt?
Moslems should all declare condolence to the death of the Coptic brother and should widely and openly condemn the attacks.
Christians should hold on to some rationality and not to follow the radicalist voices from within.
There are lots of doubts between the two religions in Egypt now, this burning ash underneath the scene is dangerous and we have to address it frankly and loudly.
Yes, Copts were not given the same rights as Moslems in certain situations, which make them, feel bitter, this policy that was invented by Nasser is another ridiculous policy and should stop right now.
But, at the same time Moslems think that Copts are using the current worldwide circumstances to arm-twist the government, even asking interference from foreign countries like the US and this puts them in a position of questionable loyalty, which is not true.
We need the rational voices in both camps, and in fact I feel ridiculous by describing them as two camps. It is one camp, the Egyptian Camp.
