Something I designed ages ago, and remains relevant today!
We are all Egyptians… We are ONE! Wake up and unite!!!
Yesterday, Egypt awakened to a horrendous tragedy…
An unspeakable act of treachery and evil…
The Hideous hands of terror has struck Egypt, all of Egypt & all of the Egyptians, and it had struck them where it really hurts.
21 EGYPTIANS dead, and 74 wounded… an appalling criminal attack directed at each and every one of us.
Instead of celebrating a new year, we are burying and mourning our victims… and forever will this date, 1/1/2011 be marked with sadness and grief for all Egyptians.
To my fellow Christians, allow me to offer my sincerest and most solemn condolences to you, on your terrible loss…
Your loss is our loss… The blood that was shed was Egyptian… it was you & me and every single one of us who was targeted by these vile murderous acts…
To my fellow Muslims, we must condemn these horrible acts, both verbally and by the power of our actions; we must support our Christian brethren and sisters in their time of trial. That’s what the Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) would have done if he was amongst us:
“Those who believe (in the Qur’ān), those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Sabians and the Christians,- any who believe in God and the Last Day, and work righteousness- on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.”
“Strongest among men in enmity to the believers wilt thou find the Jews and Pagans; and nearest among them in love to the believers wilt thou find those who say, “We are Christians”: because amongst these are men devoted to learning and men who have renounced the world, and they are not arrogant.”
And finally, to all my fellow Egyptians, We must stand united against the tyranny of evil doers. It falls on us the educated and intellects of both sects to make sure that this unity remains unshaken, I don’t know how, but it is most important that we understand and make those around us realize that we are not one and the other, we are ONE, there are more things to unites us, than to divide us…
We are not two sects sharing a land, we are one NATION living in its’ land.
We must fight ignorance, hate and sectarian discrimination… by the power of our words, ideas & actions.
May the victims rest in peace and may God bless us all.
BERLIN (AFP) – Germany’s attempt to create a multi-cultural society has failed completely, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said last weekend, calling on the country’s immigrants to learn German and (more importantly) adopt Christian values.
Merkel weighed in for the first time in a blistering debate sparked by a central bank board member saying the country was being made “more stupid” by poorly educated and unproductive Muslim migrants.
“Multikulti”, the concept that “we are now living side by side and are happy about it,” does not work, Merkel told a meeting of younger members of her conservative Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party at Potsdam near Berlin.
“This approach has failed, totally,” she said, adding that immigrants should integrate and adopt Germany’s culture and values.
“We feel tied to Christian values. Those who don’t accept them don’t have a place here,” said the chancellor.
So much for Secularism & the separation of Church and State!
I thought Europe stopped forcing it’s religion on others when it stopped the crusades! (about 10 – 50 years ago)!!!!
What happened to Human rights, tolerance, co-existence and freedom of religion & expression?! I guess the governments of the west only uphold these values when it’s in their best interest!!!
