That made me think and question myself, genuinely question myself: what good has come out of Egypt more recently?
Note to self: when you meet a Coptic Christian, ask him or her what he thinks of the Muslim invasion of Egypt and the deplacement of his people. **)
Note to self: if you ever have the chance to meet the widow (no, not his widow who is sitting in Paris on the billions he stole from the Palestinian people) I mean ask one of the widows of the Israeli Olympic team of 1972.
The images coming out of Tahir Square during the Obama-facilitated Arab Spring?
Note to self: Ask LARA LOGAN what these images cost her.
Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood, who is ruling Egypt now?
Note to self: ask the people of Israel.
The Muslim brotherhood whose credo was and still is: "Allah is our objective; the Quran is our law, the Prophet is our leader; Jihad is our way; and death for the sake of Allah is the highest of our aspirations" ?
Note to self: watch this video and listen to David Harris :
*) Cairo: A leading Egyptian jihadist, who fought in Afghanistan on the side of militant Taliban, has called for the removal of the world-famed Pyramids and the Sphinx, branding them idols.
Al Gohari, who was imprisoned twice in the era of Hosni Mubarak but released by a court verdict after the 2011 popular uprising that toppled the long-standing president. told the privately owned Egyptian Dream TV: “We destroyed the Buddha statues in Afghanistan and will destroy the Sphinx and the Pyramids because they are idols. The Muslims are obliged to apply the Sharia (Islamic law), including the removal of the idols.”
**) Muslim conquest of Egypt: The Muslim invasion of Egypt took place in AD 639. Despite the political upheaval, the Egyptian population remained mainly Christian. However, the gradual conversions to Islam over the centuries changed Egypt from a Christian to a largely Muslim country by the end of the 12th century. Egypt's Umayyad rulers taxed Christians at a higher rate, driving merchants towards Islam and undermining the economic base of the Coptic Church.
