Not good if you're a Christian.

Nearly 93,000 Coptic Christians have left Egypt since 19 March, a report by an Egypt-based Coptic NGO has said.

The number may increase to 250,000 by the end of 2011, according to Naguib Gabriel, the head of the Egyptian Federation of Human Rights, which released the report.

Not true. Maybe that was a while ago when this article was written. But now not anymore. Most Muslims and Cristians unite for their goal, which is that the scaf steps down.

Here are some newer articles written in the last week

Usual forum rules apply so please do not personally attack other posters. Like minded people can use a chat thread but there's nothing to stop others from dropping in unless they are being deliberately disruptive, insulting or offensive. If they are, report them and they'll be warned, infracted etc. So everyone try to play nice.

Actually they implemented the one the LTA is using for 2012. Before that we had a mixture between a Spanish-Norwegian-Argentinean-..... one, which was a disaster.
But the transition itself was very unfair for many players. Hopefully the new system would help alot.
On http://tennisawy.com/ there is a bit explanation.
By the way FEDERER97 and batates are good tennis players. The first one is 1997 and was number 1 under 14 for the most of last year before the second one took it over for the rest of the year and for the beginning of this year as he is 1998. They are ranked 57 and 42 respectively in the men rank in Egypt. They also played the world junior teams qualifying competition this year http://itfjuniors.tournamentsoftware.com/sport/draw.aspx?id=B05E2A11-0B89-45B7-8C5C-B76671171AF9&draw=2
Hopefully we'll see them one day on tour

And I love the apologetic tone as though it's 'okay' for a major political party to want to kill all Jews (many of whom are refugees kicked out of Egypt) in Israel. :rolleyes:

The fact that the FJP won 45% and the Salafis another 20% says it all about what the Egyptian people want. If I was a copt (and there are plenty where I Live) I would be looking for another passport, and it is not at all surprising why.

We actually do have some Jews and once again I am telling you no one here has any problem with Jewish people, the problem is mainly with the Zionists, so you're mixing the issues really.
It's not like this is the motto of the party or even their plan. This news you had was about 5000 people doing a rally. This doesn't necessary represent what either the party or the people here want.
Also it's not like they're going to do anything to the copts and that because they simply can't. I have some friends and I am sure they're not doing what you think.
And just for your information the FJP has some copts in the party.

I thought I might get some unbiased information here, but your language suggests you think of people of other religions as something you have to tolerate, even though you would just prefer them to disappear.

How can you say that a rally of 5000 people calling for ''death to the Jews'' does not represent what anybody thinks? Of course it represents what they think.

It seems to me the problem throughout the Middle East is Islam and the message of intolerance that it preaches.

It represents what these 5000 people think, not necessary what the party itself or the rest of the people in Egypt think.

01-22-2012, 06:19 PM
Why weren't they all arrested? Has the party officially denied that those people represent its views?

If the rally was officially held by the Muslim Brotherhood and was in a prominent Cairo mosque, then I do not see how it is at all possible to just shrug and say neither the Muslim Brotherhood or Islam has anything to do with the rally. Seems to me they were 100% involved.

Look, I was in egypt recently... I wandered in to a Cairo bookstore and the first two books I saw, pominently displayed, were Mein Kampf and the Protocols of the elders of Zion. It would be like walking into a Western bookshop and seeing copy after copy of Anders Breivik's manifesto, and the owner of the store denying they had a grudge against Muslims. Like I said, there are many Copts living in my area, many have told me that anti-Jewish feelings run very high amongst the Egyptian populace, far beyond those that could be attributed to the effects of the Israel/Palestine conflict.

And there is no Jewish community in Egypt. FFS, there are more Jews living in Haiti.

Anyway, good luck with the new democratic Egypt. These guys look like they are ready to step up for the challenge. :rolleyes:

News reports suggest the security forces allowed this to happen. Can someone explain this?

nothing wrong with saying it. it's just the way you try to use that incident to introduce your theory about hate "in the new egypt". you almost seem happy about these things happenning. neo-cons around the globe would be proud

You are not capable of seeing beyond your blinkers.

No, I am not happy. Just trying to understand if there are parallels with what happened in the Balkans once an oppressive regime fell and the people were able to express their true feelings about their fellow citizens. Should I have avoided thinking such thoughts? Are they politically incorrect? It still seems to me that when you criticize the way I said it, you really mean I shouldn't have said it . But you seem unable to tell me how I should have said it.

Not to mention the reports that the security forces may have actually encouraged this.

The security just stood there and did nothing.
I could guess the SCAF is planning this in order to keep the emergency law.

The parliament is having a meeting now about this event.

For the dead people. May their soul rest in peace.

Thanks. That probably answered my question. Does the SCAF want outbursts of violence in order to justify banning all protest?

And how would you discuss it? That's the part I am interested in.
But so far the only thing you seem to be concerned about is that I dared to comment on Egypt and that upsets you for some reason. You seem to think that thoughts not authorized by you must be bigoted. Don't you realize how egotistical that sounds?

It's a bit of an oversimplification but fair enough. Lack of education, jobs, sex, hope or whatever is still no reason to go to sports games with the intention to beat people up. Doing it and then actually kill people medieval style then we got a new level of madness.

Like most riots it has more to do with "pack mentality". They pump themselves up into a frenzy and if there is nothing or no other force to hold this frenzy back it will boil over sooner or later and people just follow without thinking. All it takes is those 1-5% if total idiots that take it too far and then usually others in the pack join in.

That is where this failed. The security/police or whatever must act before it goes too far. But with the state in Egypt and also the kick some young lunatics got out of the revolution they have surely been looking for more of that action. It's gonna be a major problem for Egypt to handle these young males that think they can do anything after being involved in some recent success
