Mary Thornberry never thought this day would come.
But she has decided she can no longer stay in Egyptthe country she has loved and chosen to live in for nearly two decades, through revolts, protests and the political uprising that swept President Hosni Mubarak out and Mohamed Morsi into power.
In sorrow and anguish, I shake the Egyptian sands from my sandals and return home, Thornberry, a former Fort Worth resident, told the Star-Telegram in a recent email. This is forever. Irrevocably.
She made the decision as the number of deaths and injuries rises in the midst of clashes between Christians and Coptic Christians.
I can no longer abide the emerging Islamic Republic of Egypt, wrote Thornberry, 78, who moved to Egypt more than 17 years ago to study ancient Egyptian history after living in Fort Worth with her husband, James Derrick, for about 20 years.
The so-called principles of Islam are being put into place, Thornberry said.

Studying Egyptian history is worthy. The savages that live there now are not the ones who built that stuff, bby population, intelligence, or anything else. It was thousands of years before the Islamic infection.
She was able to live real cheap (retire) in Egypt and had loads of Egyptians kissing her butt and doing stuff for her cheap. That ended
I don’t think there will ever be a day that I want to go to Egypt.
I’d gladly pay ten bucks per megaton to launch on Egypt.
I'll see that, and raise you Ten more!
The editing is not very good. It should be clashes between muzzies and Christians and Coptic Christians. But we all know that here.
For the sake of the historical ruins there, you might want to go neutron.
how about a day when Egypt is returned to Christianity? A pipe dream maybe, but one can always hope
I’ll see that and raise you twenty! Lets glass over that Islamist pest hole once and for all. What do I hear for Saudi Arabia? 30, 40?
I had lived in the Philippines and traveled to India, both places giving me a look a a type of poverty we don't have here in the states, but Egypt was another level altogether, IMO.
It was not a good idea to stay there. Given enough time, she would appear on a video with a bunch of muslims making some demand which, unless met, would result in a beheading.
You can bet everyone for miles knew where she lived.
Maybe this quote wasn't bad editing, but selective editing to avoid naming Muslims near the start of the article.
I don’t get it. Can’t just take the story on face value? Gee, and the reporter even used the AP-incorrect term “Islamist,” to describe Morsi, too.
“Why anyone should be surprised, surprises me,” Thornberry wrote. “The platform, aims and actions of the Muslim Brotherhood have not changed from its inception, if anything, they have intensified.”
Thornberry said she’s scheduled to leave Cairo for the final time April 30, headed for her daughter’s home in Brooklyn Park, Minn.
“I don’t have to take it. I won’t take it,” she said. “I return to a civilized country.
She would have been an oddity and mini-celebrity in her neighborhood. Islamic gossip travels at light speed.
Aim your nuke at the Aswan High Dam & watch the world’s biggest toilet flush!
You don't get to wear sandals much in Minnesota.
Ancient Egypt made a comeback
This statement is a flat out lie. There are no clashes between Christians and Coptic Christians. Either she is not being truthful or the author of the article is wrong. Or maybe it is that the media can just no longer bring themselves to report Muslims as the troublemakers.
I was in Cairo a year 1/2 ago with a Coptic Christian guide. Essentially all of the Christians in Egypt are Coptic Christians.
Nuke ‘em ‘till they glow; then shoot ‘em in the dark!
