Please avoid disaster in Egypt

The current events in Egypt are not understandable. On Jan. 25, 2011, a great revolution by youth succeeded in the removal of a dictator Hosni Mubarak. The world admired that peaceful revolution. Now, it looks like a disaster is about to break out.

Muslims and Christians lived in Egypt for centuries. In fact, during the revolution, Muslims and Christians protected each other during their prayers in Tahrir Square. Now, we hear of attacks on the Coptic Cathedral and on Al-Azhar mosque. Many Egyptians were killed. The police are not doing any thing to curb violence.

Religion (in this case, Islam, nor any other religion) is not the reason. I do not know whom to blame. God forbade killing of the innocents in the Quran as he said that killing an innocent person is similar to killing all humanity. I know other holy books have the same sentiment.

During President Mohamed Morsi’s administration, not only has the economy been driven into the mud, but safety, security, food supplies, petroleum products, jobs, etc., are very scarce. Either he has no idea of how to run a country or he has a terrible agenda. He needs to step down or be impeached as soon as possible and prepare for an early election.

I hope the U.S. government stops supporting him before a big disaster takes place.

    "I do not know whom to blame." ... You can start with the Muslim Brotherhood. They have been in a widespread campaign attacking and killing Christians for years. This problem has only become worse since the majority of Egypt's Muslims elected the Brotherhood fanatics into power, both in the parliament and the presidency. Here is a bit from a recent CSM news story on the violence against Christians by the Muslim Brotherhood: "Egyptian Christians were fearful when Mohamed Morsi, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, was elected president last year. Sunday, when a crowd attacked the cathedral complex that holds the seat of the Coptic Orthodox pope, it was a realization of their fears. And many worry that the ground is growing more fertile for attacks on Christians because of a rise in incendiary religious rhetoric. Clerics and others on religious television channels are responsible for spreading much of the bigotry and discriminatory rhetoric, but members of the Muslim Brotherhood and its political arm, the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), as well as the Brotherhood's official Arabic website, have also engaged in discourse stigmatizing religious minorities, particularly Christians." No honest observer is surprised that the Muslim Brotherhood is nasty and violent and hateful toward non-Muslims. This is how all Islamist parties behave in every country where they have any power. They use it to impose their evil.

    Morsi is the president and the buck stops with him. He failed miserably. He should step down or be impeached. I hope our government will never help him to pursue his terrible agenda. Some elements of the MB are extremists and scare anyone but great number of them are very peaceful and peace loving people. No one knew Morsi before the revolution. He has not been able to guide the country in the right direction.

    Hamza: You said: Some elements of the MB are extremists.... This is the official Muslim Brotherhood credo: ALLAH IS OUR OBJECTIVE; THE QURAN IS OUR CONSTITUTION; THE PROPHET IS OUR LEADER; JIHAD IS OUR WAY; AND DEATH FOR THE SAKE OF ALLAH IS THE HIGHEST OF OUR ASPIRATIONS. In my humble world view, this is pretty gosh darn extreme. Please note that Hamza is enthusiastically demonstrating takiya: the mohammad mandated command to further the cause of islam using lies and deceit. (see above for 'cause') Do your own research: islam 101 at Lots of great informational tabs at
