Since publishing this post about that crazy man who want to demolish the pyramids and Sphinx I received several reactions attacking me for publishing this post from both Islamists and non Islamists.
The main objection : Why would you publish something like this in your blog and spread it like that when this man only represents himself and a narrow segment from the society or rather Islamists ??
I am sorry , this man does not represent himself alone but rather represents a whole. Similar views were expressed by none other Salafist Calling leading member and co-founder of its political arm , the famous Al Nour party.
Al Nour Party and Salafist calling as well El Shahat are popular enough among millions of Salafists in Egypt.
Of course this will lead us to wonder about Al Nour party’s position from all this. I bet they will have double standards on this , they do not have a problem in respecting foreign anthems while they do not pay respect to our national anthem.
Now for those Islamists who can not tolerate this , they have to face the fact that their Sheikhs and scholars hate ancient Egypt because they look to ancient Egyptians as infidels who stood against Prophet Moses !!
Wagdy Ghonim, the foulmouthed Pro-Muslim brotherhood preacher had always slammed ancient Egyptians in his tapes and videos. This clip was aired on Al Nas TV channel , one of the most top Salafist Channels in Egypt.
Ghonim got a huge fan base among Islamists already.
I remember also the famous fatwa of Sheikh Hassan to sell ancient artifacts. Sheikh Hassan is also the owner of Al Nas TV channel as well one of the leading members of the Salafist calling in Egypt.
Are these enough for you to admit that we got a problem in how these radicals think regarding our history and our legacy !?
Second Objection : This is a Wael Al Abrashi’s show and he is attention seeker.
Well it is not about Wael Al Abrashi or his hot hair , Al Abrashi did not tell Morgan El Gohary or El Shahat to say what he wants. This is how they think. We have to deal with that.
Third Objection : This is a secondary issue !!
This is not a secondary issue , it is nation’s history. Iraq’s history has been destroyed and Syria’s history is being destroyed. I will not let this happen to Egypt’s history as well !!
Taliban blew up Buddha statues , their supporters can do this in Egypt.
I can not ignore anything and yes I believe that these groups are back to the surface to scare us in order to make the public miss Mubarak’s solid security fist. Still whoever is moving the strings in the backstage , he is playing with fire that can burn the whole nation down. This is why I am extremely worried.
Luckily I am not worried alone as the Tourism coalition in Egypt has threatened to sue President Morsi for the lack of reaction after Morgan’s alarming statements.
