I am branded as a Coptic Site

I am so proud to announce that I am included among Coptic sites on The Coptic Web Directory. I knew this long time ago since I started my blog but as you know I do not really care about talking religion here, since it is a personal matter for everyone. But I have some personal stories of oppression from other Muslims in Cairo that I would like to share with you. Just to let you know that some Muslims do not only oppress peoples of other faiths but people from their own religion.

But talking about the ugly incident of Luxor of yesterday, which I feel the obligation to write about since it touches other Egyptian citizens' rights as well as equality and freedom in our society, I want to say that me and my blog feel honored to belong to the Coptic Web Directory. I will be happy to belong to the Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu sites...etc as long as we believe in each others' right to have different faiths.

FFE - You are an intelligent, free-thinking, open-minded Egyptian!! You are an Egyptian first and foremost who loves her country and wants a brighter future for ALL Egyptians, Muslim and Coptic!!!!

Is Egypt only for one denomination??

Can not all peoples of Egypt work together to attain a brighter future for THEIR country?!

FFE - Thank you for your compassion and heart. I only hope more Egyptians will follow your lead!!

On behalf of all rational and good Egyptians I applaud you for your kindness and open-mindedness!

BTW - Some sad news to report, one of the victims in the mob violence near Luxor has passed away. I hope his death is not in vain.

Peace in Egypt!

Egypeter, We are all at the end of the day humans and that's the most important thing.

I am so sorry to hear about the death of one of the victims.

I was doing some posts on Coptic Traditions for the week of Christian Unity on my blog. I knew about how terrible Coptic Christians are treated, but was not as aware of the extent.

Do you know if Coptic Orphans is a good charity to support. They seem to be, but if you know more about them and other groups I would like to know. You can let me know through my blog at

The Coptic Christians are now always in my prayers.
