Disturbing News from Alexandria, Egypt

This is a story that tells you what kind of culture was adopted by Egyptians under the fascism of the totalitarian regimes like those of Egypt's military coup d’etats of July 23 1952.

It is a complete transformation to the principles and ethics that our history before 1952 taught us. I cannot believe that this is happening in Egypt that once hosted Damascus Jews after the 1844 massacre, Lebanon’s Christians after the 1860 massacres, thousands of Armenian orphans in 1915, the Greek royal family during world war II, Albanian Royal family after the 1950 coup d’etates, Al-Habib Bourqiba, Russian and Chinese princesses as well as Algerian and most African strugglers. Egypt was also sought by Prince Talal Bin Abdel Aziz and the Iranian and Libyan Royal families as a safe haven, where they all lived in safety. Let’s not forget Egyptian Jews who had to flee Egypt in a savage way under the brutal ruling of late President Gamal Abdel Nasser who gave orders to get them out of Egypt with their bedtime clothes confiscating all their properties.

Not to mention that the Mediterranean city of Alexandria before 1952 was a true European hub for all immigrating Europeans from Greece, Armenia, Ukraine, Italy…etc and nothing was mentioned about their faiths. Now it is a hub for extremists. How sad?

Now I am asking myself, why am I surprised? This is how the fascist era of the July Revolution has started; stabbing a nun now in 2005 is a normal development!

This also can tell you the amount of destruction that my Egypt is suffering under military ruling since 1952.

Time to end this era and start anew to bring back the Egypt we are all proud of. Photo by AP.

Gateway Pundit and Egyptian Sand Monkey have more on the story.

I don't even know what to say. How could anybody believe God wanted them to do something like that? What kind of God would that be?

It is an ideology that needs to come to an end. One of its corners is that "god" that calls for brutally butchering/blowing up innocent people everywhere regardless of their faiths. This ideology was augmented by dictatorship.

It happened that this is a fresh incident against a nun, but let me tell you that there are lots of muslims in Egypt that are discriminated against because they are not regarded as "true muslims" because they do not practice.

What a sad story. I so appreciate your voice of reason and strength at this crucial time. I was impressed with the history you shared.

We must bring this history back. Those who have distorted our lives with terrorism and extremism must leave.
