Silence is Acquiescence

Egypt’s government, a member of the UN, is obligated to promote peace and tolerance among nations.  But it is prosecuting those who insult President Morsi or the Muslim Brotherhood, but it tolerates incitement to genocide by Muslim clergy.  The hate mongers are very clear about their objective, as evidenced by the Egyptian cleric Mahmoud Al-Masri and many others.  They mean what they say, and we should take it very very seriously.

What can we do? Inaction is not an option. Our voices are heard only when we ask our representatives in Congress, our Senators, and others to whom we are connected in the wider world to notice these statements and speak out against them on our behalf.

Now that you are aware, beware! Let’s keep the issue alive.  Words can and do kill.
