For the majority of my blogs ( what a weird word...) I do try to keep it light. I do not always succeed. And sometimes, like now, they are intentionally straight.
I have been watching what is going on in Egypt...land of pharohs and sphinx, pyramids and knowledge. And they are fighting for what we fought for in this land over 200 years ago.
I am not stupid...I know the fear is that the Muslim Brotherhood, whose spawn is Al Queda and Hamas....those who see America as the " great satan "...will take over and push the country into what Iran has become...a more dictatorial state than it already is.
That now there will be the power to push Israel "into the sea". That the tepid and tenuous peace that has prevailed in that region for the last three decades will come to a fiery end. That the dictator we know is better than the one we dont.
And yet....arent the people there fighting for what we fought for so long ago? For the right of assembly, the right of free speech, the right to worship ( yes, even this ) as we please....the right of the press...arent they fighting for FREEDOM ????
Arent they fighting for the same thing we fought for ...and are still fighting for??
How can we not support them...and God help this government if they dont.
