It was announced today that President Mohamed Hosni Mubarak is to stand down and the Supreme Council of the Army is taking control. What happens next?
It is reported that at least 21 people were killed and over 70 were injured in a bomb blast which happened during a New Year’s Eve Mass at the al-Qiddissin Church in Alexandria, Egypt.
Egyptian President Mubarak said it was the work of “foreign hands”.
US President Barack Obama condemned “this barbaric and heinous act” and said those behind it had to be brought to justice. “The perpetrators of this attack were clearly targeting Christian worshippers, and have no respect for human life and dignity,” he also said. “We are continuing to gather information regarding this terrible event, and are prepared to offer any necessary assistance to the government of Egypt in responding to it,”.
Well anyone who has lived in the Middle East and in particular Egypt, they would know that the Christians, Jews and Muslims have a long history of safety and harmony. This is why you still find jews in Iraq, Syria, Iran and Egypt. This is why 10% of Jordans population is Christian and almost 50% of Lebanese population is Christian and 10% of Egyptian population is Christian.
In the example of Egypt they amount to over 10 million people. Such a large minority will always be an assest for anyone to interfere with and destabilise Egypt for it’s own purpose. No one is sure who is really behind this attack but it can be certain that it is ‘foreign hands’.
However if I was an Egyptian I would be alarmed by the immediate help of the USA without even proper investigation who was behind these attacks; which only leads me to believe that America has an invested interest in Egypt in fighting it’s war around the world and is looking for further it’s support from regional mights as it did with Pakistan.
US president Barak Obama condemned the killing of 43 people as “outrageous” after a female bomber attacked on a large crowd receiving food aid in Khar in the region of Bajaur, North-west of Pakistan.
Well at least the feminists will be happy that the bombing was carried out by female and this brings equality in the ranks of the so called ‘terrorists’.
However Obama went to state that he strongly condemns “the outrageous terrorist attack in Khar,” and that “Killing innocent civilians outside a World Food Programme distribution point is an affront to the people of Pakistan, and to all humanity,” he said.
Mr Obama if you’re so concerned about the killing and murder of innocent civilians why have you not condemned and stopped Drone attacks by your own army in Pakistan. To date Drone attacks in Pakistan has murdered over 2000 innocent women, children and elderly people.
U.S. airstrikes in Pakistan are killing Pakistani civilians, turning public opinion against the government, and U.S. experts say the airstrikes are destabilizing the Pakistani government. Please have the decency to value life for life and halt U.S. airstrikes in Pakistan.
I call Obama a bomber cause those are your bombs.

John Smith started the day early having set his alarm clock (MADE IN JAPAN) for 6 a.m.
While his coffeepot (MADE IN CHINA) was perking, he shaved with his electric razor (MADE IN PHILIPPINES)
He put on a dress shirt (MADE IN SRI LANKA), designer jeans (MADE IN SINGAPORE) and tennis shoes (MADE IN VIETNAM). After cooking his breakfast in his new electric skillet (MADE IN INDIA), then he sat down with his calculator (MADE IN MEXICO) to see how much he could spend today.
After setting his watch (MADE IN TAIWAN) to the radio (MADE IN INDIA), he got in his car (MADE IN GERMANY) filled it with GAS (from Saudi Arabia) and continued his search for a good paying AMERICAN JOB.
At the end of yet another discouraging and fruitless day checking his computer (MADE IN MALAYSIA), John decided to relax for a while. He put on his sandals (MADE IN BRAZIL) poured himself a glass of wine (MADE IN FRANCE) and turned on his TV (MADE IN KOREA), and then wondered why he can’t find a good paying job in AMERICA.
AND NOW HE’S HOPING HE CAN GET HELP FROM HIS PRESIDENT (MADE IN KENYA)
