in response to reader comment: Religion of Intolerance

You know what, you're right. You pin-pointed the problem. "In Egypt if we wish to fix the roof tiles on our church because they are warn out we need Govt authorisation" Y ou pointed the finger of blame on the gov't. The gov't not only restricts christians from following their full religion, but also muslims.

Thats why muslims are "following" you around. muslim religous leaders are thrown into jail by arb gov'ts. Are tortured byt gov'ts. My grandpa is egyptian though I am libyan, he used to tell my mom about his friends who were trotured by nasser. Nobody likes arab gov'ts. including muslims. And you sat islam is a religon of intolerance? Have you even checked out Islam? There are dozens of rules set by Islam on how to respect jewish and christians. How to help christians rebuild chruches destroyed by fires. Dig a little deeper in Islam and you will find that Islam is a religion of tolerance that respects ahl al kitab " people of the book". And if you dig a little deep in history, you will find that christtians were treated far better under the islamic rules rather than the CHRISTIAN roman rule.
