THE TRUTH ABOUT EGYPTIAN PROTESTS
Dear friends As a human being and a physician, I categoricallyand unconditionally deplore all killing. As afather, my heart goes out to all those who lostsons and daughters in Egypt's violence today andsince the uprising of June 30.Nevertheless, in the middle of a frenzy of Western politicians and Western mediaconsistently presenting only one side -- theIslamists' -- I could not let this day pass withoutsharing some thoughts and some truths. For thelast six weeks since the overthrow of MohammedMorsi, the Western media consistently portrayedthe sit-ins that paralyzed Cairo and other parts of Egypt as sit-ins by "peaceful demonstrators". Asmayhem broke out throughout Egypt today, theyconveniently ignored what was happening in therest of the country to focus on those "peacefuldemonstrators."Peaceful demonstrators??Peaceful demonstrators do not have the capacityto kill more than 47 police personnel documentedby name, rank, and serial number in a few hours.Peaceful demonstrators do not attack theKerdasa (neighborhood close to the pyramids)police station with rocket-propelled grenades, killthe station's police officers, strip them of theirclothes, and drag their bodies down the street.Peaceful demonstrators do not threatenChristians with genocide as was called for bymany of their leaders over the last six weeks, andas documented by multiple videos available on YouTube and other outlets.
