This is breaking my heart.

 

Used to live in Cairo and one of my sisterfriends is Egyptian with most of her fam over there; they already went through the riots with the churches being bombed (2011? 2012? sorry time is sketchy for me atm) and narrowly missed being blown the fuck up in their church (20 minutes I think the timeframe was; they could all have died). I can't imagine what she goes through watching this from the UK, powerless to help :(

Egypt has been there for thousands of years, they will survive this... and i doubt it will completely crumble into civil war like you're seeing in Syria, since the military probably still has the support of 75% of the population. what the remaining people do, and how brutal the response is, remains to be seen.

 

 

what's terribly sad is that after their 'revolution' the army has now imposed another 'state of emergency'

i truly hope to see elections there soon, i love the place and it's people.

 

i heard an egyptian woman remark: when you have a bloody leg, sometimes you must amputate.

religious extremism sucks, so i was disappointed with the road the MB was taking, but i'm not so sure what will come next since they appear gladly willing to die for Morsi (of all the pathetic figureheads...)

 

 

and looking at the beach,

i'm not sure what people expect them to do. that battle was between Muslim Bros, who a lot of the population hates, and the military.

why should they interrupt their holiday bc some morons were throwing police trucks off bridges?

those people are the ones smart enough to stay away, whether as participants or spectators, they won't be among the hundreds killed.

I believe he is implying that in a nation with such a solidly religious majority (especially that religion) they will keep killing each other until there is Sharia law and other religious minorities have been "put in their places" and paying their Jizya.

One counter point to that would be the other highly religious countries, non-Sharia Islamic countries included that are not killing each other.

 

Another counterpoint would be the secular and/or non-Islamic countries throughout history that constantly kill the fuck out of each other.

In politics and sociology, divide and rule (or divide and conquer) (derived from Greek: διαίρει καὶ βασίλευε, diaírei kaì basíleue) is gaining and maintaining power by breaking up larger concentrations of power into chunks that individually have less power than the one implementing the strategy. The concept refers to a strategy that breaks up existing power structures and prevents smaller power groups from linking up.

There are countless examples; Europe spent the majority of the 19th and 20th century ripping itself apart, China has 4000 years of history that bounced between warlordism, tyranny, benevolent monarchy, revolution, civil war, warlordism, despotism, state masacres, etc. Myanmar is a non-Islamic country that has spent the last 60 odd years since independence in a constant state of civil war, insurgency, violent uprisings and just as violent government oppression. India is a religiously mixed secular state nation that has any number of insurgencies, has warred with two neighbours and clashes with all neighbours, experienced massive violence during partition and seen pogroms against Muslims.

 

Indonesia is a majority Muslim state that has experienced massive violence/massacres and state oppression that had nothing to do with religion, it was communism and race.

 

Malaysia is a majority Muslim country that is not ripping itself apart. Jordan, Turkey, Kuwait, Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, Kazakjstan, etc. are majority Muslim countries and they are not killing fuck out of themselves. Yes, all these countries have problems, all countries have problems but they are not killing each other large-scale and these countries are not ripping themselves apart.
