because they fear the future there. They are not being included in talks about the future. Mubarak was a stabilizing force in the Middle East and I'm sure the world will regret the "side of history" Barack Obama, in his infinite wisdom, has decided to plop down on.
This is a worrying situation that is for sure but to blame Obama is a bit rich, guess all the protesting people who were demanding a murderous dictator be ousted are not responsible for their own actions but rather Obama is for thinking that the world would harshly judge America for supporting a murderous dictator. The man cannot do anything right with situations like this, if he sat back and did not support the people demanding freedom to choose their leader (dictators, as it would seem they want?) he would likely be criticised for that, support the people not the dictator and he gets slammed for that too. I much prefer to criticise the guy for things like breaking his promise to close gitmo or his promises of transparency that he has failed to deliver on as he actually did wrong there.
As for the people choosing yet another dictator to rule and probably murder them someday, well my heart hurts for them and goes a long way toward explaining my complete lack of respect for religion. Theirs seems to have taught them to put men in places of such powers as to be God like

It is a terrible situation for these Christians who have been in Egypt for generations. Maybe Obama will stand up for them?
Why do you not stand up for the Christians in Palestine Ann?

The problem is, they replaced Mubarak with Mubarak II.
He is no different...probably worse.
And Mubarak was an ally of Neo-Con Ameria, not regular America. Not by a long shot.

They attack their own women in Tahrir Square and attack Christians in their churches. What kind of government can we expect from people like this. I think they NEED a boot on their necks, they can't behave themselves on their own. People get the leaders they...

Very rarely do I see a forum thread on Islam. I have not seen an atheist who has started a thread on Islam insulting Mohammed or Allah or just speaking out against them. Christianity and Jesus seem to be the target. I know it is because the US, for example, is considered a...
