I agree Stavros. But I’m sure that if there is mass persecution in Egypt the rest of the world will interfere... I hope.
We put our trust in God, not in princes or presidential nominees. (Psalm 118:8,9), not in marches or rioting or in a legal system or politics.
These events only prove the Bible is true and our God will execute vengeance through us.
I get the sense you aren't fluent in reading Arabic, or are you?
I guess if you are, you would understand much more of the gimmicks happening in Egypt, than a superficial outlook of blaming the revolution for what is happening now. Don't take me wrong, so many people (and indeed not only Christians) think and believe this way... well... it isn't...
God actually protested against authorities that were evil and seeking-own-interests.
St. Paul did the same...
Shafik wouldn't have been better for Christians. He would have been exactly acting in the same vein as mubarak, turning a blind eye to persecution, discrimination, lack of employment (and under-recognition), and the right to build churches. The only person in history (the whole of Egypt's history since St. Mark's preaching in Egypt) who did "some" good to Christians was Abd El Nasser, and that was only because Pope Kyrillos carried out God's miracles with him personally. He was a gentleman. It is the way it has to go. Christians in Egypt have always lived as a minority (at least since islam conquered in Egypt), and minorities every where are used for political reasons, and how starkly obvious this could be in any nation except an arab one.
The authorities that were evil were the pharasees.
