    Egypt's power change came with Obama's approval.There was not a Christian vs Muslim problem of such magnitude before that change. Obama was reared somewhere in some type religion...and has since cheapened what Egyptians can only expect when they see other Christians.Christ said, Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
    Egyptians probably found the uS had been funding the change of power many years prior...and do not trust the pay-off type lobby Congress has ears for in the uS replacing their religion that they see cornered in the uS...along with all the other churches that were not closed ten years ago.
    Obama's brand of a Democracy is not productive...but that holds true for both the Republicans and Democrats...none appear too religious or they would not be standing there tearing down religious governments...and replacing them with politicians like them.
