In Solidarity with the People of Egypt

February 1, 2011 § 1 Comment

In honour of today’s (Feb 1st 2011) Million Person March in Egypt, I would like to express my support for the people of Egypt as they continue their struggle for the basic civil rights and freedoms they’ve long been deprived of.

Many of us here in the West look on in awe and admiration as a nation rises up after years of repression under a military dictatorship to claim justice, liberty, and democracy for their people. We should remember that we have the power to support them from where we are: they need our prayers, and for us to share information on their plight with those around us. They need us to pressure our governments to support this just cause, and for us to write to newspapers and media to address any misinformation and deliberate political spin that takes away from that cause for the sake of Western interests in the Middle East.

People of Egypt, may God bless you with the strength and courage to continue in your struggle.
May He aid you in these difficult times, and may He grant you success.
Ameen.

§ One Response to In Solidarity with the People of Egypt

  • I am envious of the youth of egypt for the values they hold toward their country, their vision and fight for democracy and justice. This is what I call a democratic revolution not the shit revolutions that we see in our country and what we saw in Iraq.
