Please avoid disaster in Egypt

By From page A6 | April 17, 2013

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.
