You beat me to it, Robin

Reader comment on item: L'Institut d'Égypte – In Memoriam
in response to reader comment: Islam's Destruction of Everything Beautiful

Submitted by DEBORAH THE JUDGE (United States), Dec 27, 2011 at 23:30

You are absolutely correct. These people who are now called "Egyptians" are in nationality title only! They had absolutely nothing to do with the building of the ancient Eqyptian empire or any of the elaborate structures, so therefore they aren't destroying their own identity because it never belonged to them. They are descendants of bedouin Arabs who took over Egypt, obeying the quran to move in and take over the whole earth. They don't have any respect for anyone else's heritage, or relics, or religion, or land, so why be stunned by this? The remnant of the true Egyptians was scattered and their empires fell shortly after God poured out his plagues to get the Hebrews out of there.
