Some General is better than a terrorist.
I’m glad to see the Egyptian people and military rising up against a tyrannical terrorist government.
Just ask the Egyptian Copts how wonderful Obama’s buddy Morsi has been to them.

I wonder if the NEXT government WON'T be tyrannical and terrorist. I can only hope. My husband and I lived in Saudi Arabia for five years and I went to Egypt twice because it was such a WONderful country. It is so sad. I wish them all peace and prosperity.

The Egyptians probably treat their Christian brothers badly because the Christians have a strong work ethic and therefore OWN homes, businesses, buildings, etc. The hard working Japanese in Hawaii are, I am told, resented by the locals because they OWN so much of Hawaii.
The Indians who immigrated to east Africa were greatly resented by the locals because the Indians WORKED so hard and ended up OWNING much of Nairobi, etc.
Not a new story.
From the Internet:
The Copts are the native Christians of Egypt, a major ethnoreligious group in Egypt and the largest Christian group there. Christianity was the religion of the vast majority from 400800 A.D. and the majority after the Muslim conquest until the mid-10th century and remains the faith of a significant minority population. Historically they spoke the Coptic language, a direct descendant of the Demotic (daily, every, common) Egyptian spoken in the Roman era, but it has been near-extinct and mostly limited to liturgical use since the 18th century. They now speak Arabic.
Copts in Egypt constitute the largest Christian community in the Middle East, as well as the largest religious minority in the region, accounting for an estimated 10% of the Egyptian population. Most Copts adhere to the Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria. The remainder of around 800,000 are divided between the Coptic Catholic and various Coptic Protestant churches.
Observation: When the ROMAN Catholic Church insisted on Latin as the language of the Mass, it drove away Greeks, Egyptians, etc. Then in 1962 the Pope allowed the VERNACULAR in all countries for the Mass.
That allowance TOOK AWAY the reason for breaking away from the Latin-centered Church. Most of those break-away Catholic communities reunited with Rome.
I was in Serbia this past month and went to Mass. The ONLY word I understood was "Jesus." Otherwise it was the EXACT same Mass as I hear in the USA. I could follow what they did, not what they said. :o)
