Salam,

Perhaps I should study it thoroughly so I can know what it's founders intended for their country.

And then sadly/possibly see the current result and wheep for the loss of the intentions first put by those who made those laws...

Because you must understand there is always a difference between what is set as a law and how it is followed. People calling them muslims but not following their faith ,as you put it, is one example.

I'll explain it more where this view of mine comes from.

In belgium we have laws. but the lawgivers have seemingly lost touch with reality.

Why? Because they still vote/put laws that can't be followed practically, nor controlled as such.

examples: police has to do a certain number of alcohol controls but don't have sufficient men to do both the number of controls and do their other work so they still try to comply to the law and do those test on their own colleagues. Result, the law and rules set out are still followed but the intent of safer traffic is completelly lost. now policemen and women that should walk the streets and see for it's safety are taking alcohol tests so that some stupid laws set numbers are met.

This is but one of many... as I know of at least 4 other such crazy realities where the law isn't followed as it was intended in Belgium and some others in France, Germany and the Netherlands... Why would Egypt be different?

So letting me study Egyptian laws doesn't make their borders safer or their border patrols stronger.

Nor their current rulers more or less severe towards terrorists.

I'm looking forward to the first recent newscast message where a terrorist is captured on Egyptian land and brought to justice... For sure this must be an event many journalists would jump on.

Don't you agree?

Submitting....
