What can we do for Egypt?


Here is a really difficult dilemma. We need to help, that is human nature, but there is not a lot we can do for Egypt, or Egyptians.

So, what can we do?

We can always pray. And that should head our list.

We can look for opportunities to help non profits in the Middle East which help with relief efforts.

But, we can also contact our politicians to ask them to pressure the State Department to quit meddling in the affairs of Egypt.

Why is that important?

Few, if any, westerners have any idea how to relate to Arabs. Much less Egyptians, and there is a huge difference between the two.

And we have no idea how to deal with the problems between the Copts and the Muslims in Egypt.

The best thing we can do is to stay out of the messy politics, and reduce our financial assistance by 10%. Reducing financial welfare to Egypt would send them a strong signal to calm their politics down, without being too heavily handed.

I think.

What do you think?

    What i think is that is better for you is to leave Egypt alone and to try to save your ass, because “There are not coming difficult days for the Americans”. The Difficult days are already there!
    So…Save first your country, and then ask the other countries if they need your Governments fatal involvement into their affairs. Everyone is going to answer no anyway. So…Save YOUR asses for now. If you can of course
