    Sad how some of the most interesting places on Earth can’t be enjoyed by civilized people due to the local feral human population. I imagine one day there’ll be forced relocation to the moon for most of that continent…

    See America first.
    Monument Valley is far more impressive than anything they built in Egypt."

    monument valley is one of my favorite places on earth. been there three times (and don’t forget the ‘valley of the gods’ or the mokee dugway while you’re there:

    however, I do have to point out that no-body ‘built’ monument valley, it just came that way from the manufacturer.

    Islam is a religion of peace with civil conflicts in Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Egypt.

    People say one thing and do the opposite. Good thing that doesn’t happen here in the good ol’ USA.

    Drum roll please………….I agree with YOU!
    I have been to 42 of our 50 states and can’t wait to see the other 8. Also I would love to explore more areas of those 42. Our country is so vast and with so many differing regions with both natural and man-made wonders. Mt. Rushmore, Yellowstone and Yosemite come to mind. Also NYC was a great place to visit.
    No $1200 airline ticket to Europe, no overpriced hotels, no passport, no worries about being a “foreigner” without the protections of being a US citizen. We drove across the country in a rented RV and mapped out our route to include all the places we wanted to see and campgrounds along the way.
    It’s an experience I’ll never forget and yet there are so many places we haven’t seen yet.
    Btw I haven’t been to Egypt, but the way things have been, I don’t think you could pay me to take a vacation anywhere in the Middle East.
    I’ll watch Nat. Geo. to see the pyramids.

    Why should I care any more or less about what happens to Christians in Egypt than I do about what happens to Muslims there?
    (And don’t give me that “we’re a Christian nation” crap, because we ain’t.)

    “I’ll watch Nat. Geo. to see the pyramids.”

    My parents went to Egypt. When they went to the pyramids, they were surrounded by crowds of people who either wanted a handout or to sell them something of no value. It really detracted from their appreciation of the area. You might not know that if you just look at the cool pictures in National Geographic.

    @Harleyquinn

    Beautiful rant, but it means absolutely nothing and doesn’t even answer my question. Why should I care more about the safety of a random Christian Egyptian than I should about a random Muslim Egyptian?
    I know you believe that all Muslims hate Christians and want to kill everyone not like them. Of course, you’re absolutely wrong, but that doesn’t seem to slow you down much in regards to anything.

    The statement comes from Hilary Clinton, Barak Obama and a lot of other people both in and out of office. George Bush is in there to.

    They came for my neighbor and I did nothing, they came for my cousin and I did nothing, they came for my brother and still I did nothing, they came for my sister and did the same, they came for my father and my mother. Last they came for me and their was no one left to help.

    Harleyquin has no answer for you.
    The high road would say you should care for both muslim and christian murders as evil.
    .
    But as you say, if murders of Egyptian muslims means nothing, why should the murder of Egyptian christians be more important?
    .
    Politics, that is all. It allows the weak minded to be upset about stuff they have no clue about.

    Been to Egypt, rooted around in the sewage at the bottom
    of Port Said for 30 minutes looking for an antenna we dropped
    off the ship…couldn"t count all the shots I had to get afterwards…Lots of interesting things to see, but dirty and
    smelly.

    Finally, SOMEbody understands what I was getting at. A welcome break from all the people saying “It’s obvious you hate Christians, when you SHOULD hate Muslims, because ALL of them are evil savages who deserve to die”.
    And they call themselves “Christians”, and they think they’re going to get into Heaven with all that hate in their hearts.
