darth vader returns: the isalmists long march in egypt

more even than pakistan - egypt is standing testimony to how islam strips a nation - in this case a very ancient civilization - of it's own identity and values. of course - it is also a country that has been completely subverted by the saudi wahhabis.

it is sad to see egypt go this way; but once gets the feeling it was inevitable. it seems that nasser and his officer coup - and the progeny of the coup (saddat and hosni) were the only ones standing preventing the raving mullahs from taking-over.

guess the arab spring froze before the weather thawed
