Bibi Netanyahu is shreying about the Muslim Brotherhood in terms redolent of Al Qaeda. Mubarak uses the Brotherhood and a combination of impending chaos and religious holy war as the reason he can’t relinquish power. Obama seems to have drunk the Kool Aid as well. So I want to know: what the hell are they worried about? Look at this picture and explain to me, what the hell they’re all worried about.
NY Times report says that yesterday while Egyptian Muslims prayed in the Square, Copts stood guard protecting them. And today it was the Copts turn to hold Mass while Muslims stood guard.
Look people, you can harbor fears of Al Qaeda on the Nile all you want, but don’t pretend it has anything to do with reality. Of course, in the fervor of the moment many wonderful things happen that can later be undone. But I think the spirit represented in this image will hold true if Mubarak, Suleiman, Obama, Clinton and Netanyahu just would get out of the way and let this thing happen the way it should.
Egypt is a nation in which religions have co-existed for thousands of years. Why can’t they coexist with a change of government there?
Interestingly, we Jews were enslaved by a few Egyptian Pharaohs way back. We won our freedom and went our separate ways. But the Pharaohs remained and found others to enslave. Now the Egyptian people themselves are enslaved and seek to break the yoke of a latter-day Pharoah.
Let the Egyptian people decide how to run their country. No more backroom deals.
