Everyone can play the crazy game

So, there is apparently a big problem in the University of Minya because of two coptic girls students: 1 drew a cartoon of the Prophet Mohamed, and the other, facing an increasingly hostile islamist roommate- drew an X over Koranic verses. When the news spread, naturally demonstrations demanding the girls' head on a stick broke out all over the University. The Coptic Church, for its part, decided to take a positive stand on the whole issue:

The Coptic church has since attempted to calm tensions, saying that
Ishaq and the student who drew the Muhammad image, Diana Samual, were
psychologically unstable and should not be held responsible for their

Yes, the church actually claimed the two girls are crazy. They didn't send them to the psychiatrist or anything. Too much of a hassle. They caused problems? They are naturally crazy.

This is all a very positive development, because the Church now is taking the same stance the Egyptian security forces does whenever they are faced with a muslim who attacks and kills Christians: He is, clearly, crazy, and it has nothing at all to do with religion. And don't you forget it!

    Hell, if the government can do it why can’t we?

    Soon, ALL ACCOUNTABILITY will vanish from Egypt as everybody will be certifiably insane!

    “The only Poo-nanny Sandmonkey has ever had, has been Financed!”

    Dude, seriously, I understand you leaving lots of comments and double posting comments to drive traffic to your blog that nobody reads and all, but do you really have to resort to such Idiocy? Is this really the best you can do?

    Don’t get this wrong, this is no attempt to engage you in some stupid inane back and forth game of insults in my comments section. You are not worth the effort (MaGdee for example I would engage; he is actually intelligent) and I usually ignore trolls. But I read your blog and you do seem to have a half decent brain in your head, so really, there is no need to bring urself down to the level of idiotic troll commentary. Traffic is not worth that my friend. You should have more self-respect than that!

    All the best,

    Is alcohol not doing it for you anymore?

    Are the stresses of living in Egypt finally getting to you?

    Is the semi euphoria first experienced of being a little privileged enough to study in Boston fading that quickly?

    Is reality sinking in, becoming a concubine of your own indiscretions and inadequacies?

    Is it all catching up with you all of a sudden to the point where “YOU” have to stoop even lower than usual without your usual care free stooper of “Not bothering to Post on your own blog’s comments section attitude,”

    that you just presumptiously insinuate that it is Tarek-the Modern Pharaoh who left the Hot Jewish Girl comment?

    What’s up with that?

    So anyways, how’s your ridiculous excuse for a life going these days besides the above?

    Brilliantly Pathetic no doubt!

    Enlighten us a little since you are in the mood of intriguing us regularly with your presence in your comments section?

    I bet you miss the states where one can misjudge objectivity for lack of huh?

    Do us all a favor and bleep yourself out when you start getting ridiculously pathetic

    Thanks and all the best to you as well

    If you ask me the country is full of lunatics. But like Peter said whats good for the goose is good for the gander. I’m surprised the church is willing to scoop that low, but it is the path of least resistance.

    Here’s a fine example of Egypt’s rising conservatism…


    “We no longer have anything but anatomy books and photos,” says a student Ahmed Gamel, 20. A naked model would be ‘haram’, or forbidden, under Islam. “It just happened, without a decree, in the 70s. There never used to be a problem,” says a professor.

    Like the dancers at Cairo’s Opera House, the models must be covered head-to-toe. Bellydancing, also considered an artform by some, is in decline in Egypt, with dancers considered sinners by the majority.

    …What exactly isn’t ‘haram’ these days?? Attacking monasteries?

    @CarpetMuncher: we STILL don’t have actual proof of what happened, so calm down for a minute and quit trying to jump on the bandwagon!
