And we'll do what?

In May of this year I visited Egypt, I did a Nile cruise, a visit to Cairo and then a few days on the Red Sea. It was a damned good holiday, but it was obvious from my conversations with out tour guides that Egypt was a country with problems. All the tour guides were fairly convinced that there would be another revolution in the country after the overthrow of Ex president Mubarack. The reasons cited were that there were now fuel shortages, power outages and food shortages, seem that President Morsi and his merry band of Muslim Brotherhood supporters were if anything more corrupt than the previous administration. Added to this religious intolerance and economic lunacy then the armies crackdown was probably inevitable.
Egypt's ambassador to London has been warned of Britain's "deep concern" over a bloody crackdown on supporters of former president Mohammed Morsi.
Ashraf El Kholy was summoned to the Foreign Office for a meeting at which a senior official "condemned the use of force" to clear two protest camps.
A state of emergency was declared in Cairo after the violence.
The city is reported to be quiet but tense after the crackdown, which left hundreds dead.
Egypt's interim government has been the subject of worldwide condemnation after the clashes.
The official death toll has risen to 525 but leaders of Mr Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood claim that far more were killed in what they describe as a "massacre" on the streets of the capital.
Well there goes the Arab Spring.
50% of Egyptians who have the franchise and are able to vote are illiterate, they make up the bulk of the surprisingly well armed Muslim Brotherhood having been told by the various imam's in the mosques to vote for and support the brotherhood. These are the self same imam's who under Mubarack were kept under observation and subject to imprrisonment for preaching hate. Mubarack knew Egypt's life blood was tourism, hence he dealt ruthlessly with those who got in the way of it. Morsi reversed all this.
So, we summon the Egyptian ambassador to what is colloquially known as the camel corp headquarters to tell him we're deeply concerned. Wow I bet he's quaking in his boots, I mean other than a stiff talking too, what else can we do?
The army aren't the problem here, the problem is the muslim brotherhood whose supporters have destroyed and attacked churches all over Egypt

Yet we're concerned...
We really need to get our priorities right and be supporting the Egyptian army.
But no, we won't, we'll support the barbarians... As usual.

Proof, if it were needed, that our government, the LibLabCon and most of our top civil servants:
- favour Islam and muslims;
- hate Christians and don't care what happens to them, murder, rape, acid attacks, church burnings etc.

Maybe the top C-of-E people should be in that 'hate Christians' group, as well, as you don't hear them raising the awful plight of Coptic Christians in the MSM?

And if the Egyptians are having such problems with fanatical muslims then for me it has got to the point that I want no mosques in England & Wales.

Let them go elsewhere to other mosques; they have too many violent nutters and their religion condones violence against non-muslims, which is not a situation we should have to tolerate.
