in response to reader comment: Involved with a Muslim Egyptian

Submitted by RLT (United States), May 2, 2013 at 21:50

Dear Cindy - I just now read your message! Oh, how I wished I could somehow get in touch with you - but - this thread shows no e-mail address. Cindy - I am very happy that my story could be of some help, but - PLEASE - listen to me. - I was involved with a man from Egypt also, for over 2 years. We spent countless hours on Skype and I believed EVERY charming word he said. He was only a few years younger then I - but - I am here to tell you Cindy, if he is half your age - It won't happen - He is ONLY using you!

I went to Egypt - and married this man (Urfi) and thereafter he held me in a run down apartment (horrible conditions) hit me, spit on me, called me names and told me that I was worthless. He even went as far as to tell me I would die of cancer if I did not listen to him. He told me everyday how I was HIS wife now and I will obey him! Prior to going to Egypt, I had NEVER experienced anything like that from anyone or any man in my ENTIRE life. He was NOTHING like that while we spoke via Skype - NEVER! He know now, he only told me what I wanted to hear and was he ever so good at it. They will look you right in the eye - and LIE LIE LIE and think NOTHING of it! He and his Mother also stole from me, and kept me inside an apartment for days on end with no direct sunlight! Oh Cindy - PLEASE don't do it! The conditions in Egypt are horrific! And - DON'T let anyone convince you otherwise! I don't care WHO this offends or who might say that some muslim men are wonderful - don't fall for it his scam - EVER! The ONLY way it would work with a muslim man is if he were only "nominally" muslim and was used to the ways of the west.

95% of these men use women to obtain a green card, drain you of your money, and once your money is gone - SO are YOU! I kissed the ground I walked on when I returned to the States! Once I returned to the states, he continued to try and call me ( I NEVER ANSWERED) - but - he left voice messages - one after another of how much he loved me and in the same breath - begging for me to send him money! NEVER EVER did I pick up the phone, and now two months later he has finally stopped calling!

Yes, I learned the hard way - but it's over and I am home, and safe and away from what could have destroyed my life forever! If you saw me, or knew me in person Cindy - you would look at me and think - how could an attractive - intelligent - kind - women, fall for a msulim man from the middle east and especially online! But - it happened - even when I thought I it never would - I thought I was in control of my life - but - again, hindsight is always 20/20. I am just feel so very LUCKY that I got out alive! I hope somehow we can figure out a way to get in touch other then here, because I want so much to help you.

However; you are at the right place here at Daniel Pipes, as there many other wonderful people here who have great insight into muslim men per their own personal experiences! I really do care Cindy - and I am here for you always!
