Oh qash wa tibn? No I do not translate Arabic for wannabe Arabs like you

>4. Regarding Muslims and Christians in Egypt: yes, there have been alarming violent attacks recently.

But you told us: "By the way in many majority Muslim countries like Egypt Muslims and Christians live together peacefully without major incidents"

Remember that our dear Jon? And I did prove to you that you are very wrong now you write:

>There have also been periods in the past where Christians had more or less limited rights. However, this improved during the 20th century, and the rule is now (still) a more or less peaceful coexistence. I recently returned from Egypt, and (out of interest) I talked with a lot of Coptic Christians there. The perception of those I talked with is that there are few problems,

But you told us that there are no problems and no violence in Egypt between Copts and Muslims remember?! Why do you change your mind now?I'm also curious: And how did you communicate with those Copts? In Egyptian Arabic?I doubt it very much . You have such vivid imagination our dear Jon

>and they have many Muslim neighbors and friends that they get along with well. The only major problem was marriage (neither Muslims nor Christians want their children to marry each other). Violence is a startling exception and not the rule. It is right to point out the increasing violence and condemn it.

Then there is indeed violence as in the case of last year sectarian violence in Alexandria and you know what? This means that you are really ignorant

>However, a blanket claim that "Islam" is behind the violence would fail to explain how Christians and Muslims have lived in general peace through the years (at the very least in a much more peaceful state than many other multi-religious societies around the world.)

Yes I only blame islam which is no more than a bad human idea not unlike communism and it will also be defeated in the market place of ideas just like communism

And no you really do not know the history of Egypt and I'm not really interested in teaching you our dear Jon because you are really beyond help

I urge to to abandon Islam and be whole again
