Sir-- Why are we all worried about ourselves? Our oil? Our tourist destinations? The people of Egypt are willing to fight for their freedom, just as we did in the revolutionary war. Everything the United States isn't necessarily the best thing, or the best way of solving a conflict. The people protesting are good people, with families and friends. They deserve freedom just as much as we do. Our chance to spend a bunch of money on a fancy hotel and tour a pyramid should be the least of our concerns right now. It's about the people, not the pyramids. Of course, all of these unnecessary violent protests are only hurting the economy. But this is what fighting for freedom looks like. I'm sorry for the human losses and I hope the birth pangs of Egypt's new society are worth it.
Took Egypt in school
Sir-- Whatever happened to the promise that Egypt was going to be a democratic country? It's too bad because most Americans studied about your country in grammar school and always wanted to visit. Once a tourist destination, Egypt is now in ruins by its own people. What a shame.
Sir-- I would tell Egyptians to learn to compromise, work together, and be lenient and considerate. Learn to give up your selfish needs for the good of your country. The government can't give you everything, and can't give you a golden spoon on a plate. You want to eat? Work for it. Same goes to Greece.
Sir-- Thank you Obama for helping to overthrow one of America's best allies in the region. Obama gave Egypt billions of tax dollars because he said it was a great example of what is good in the Middle East. Now Egypt will become another failed Islamic state. Tourism, which is Egypt's biggest industry, has already seen a huge collapse. I hope Al-Assad holds his end or else Syria too will fall to the radicals.
Spring in Dearborn
Sir-- In Dearborn, Michigan, mosques now blast the call to prayer five times a day every single day from huge loudspeakers, and in neighbouring cities you can hear it whether you want to or not. This is where non-Muslims are not welcome during Ramadan and the city council covered up honour killings since the entire city top to bottom is Muslim run. This is the extension of the Arab Islamist spring.
Where it started
Sir-- Tunisia was the beginning of a deep and decisive transformation in the Islamic world. Religious conflict among them, frustration for the existence they have to endure and the always cruel rulers they all have, made a very explosive reality for everybody involved.
