Hosni Mubarak is a horrible dictator. He runs a country where constitutional rights are suspended, censorship is legalized, religious freedom is hampered, and democracy is passé.
And for those reasons, it is unfortunate that the low life is stepping down.
Even the largest minority religion and most persecuted of Egyptians groups – the Coptics – agree. Under what would likely be an Islamic fundamentalist government, Egypt’s seven million Coptic Christians could be at risk of suffering a similar fate to six million Jews, Gypsies, and homosexuals - this in addition to the Holocaust of sorts that the Copts have already faced.
Has it really come to this? Has it become so bad that bad is the new good?
I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Helen Thomas on winning the Lifetime Achievement Award
from the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
And let us all take this opportunity to celebrate hate and anti-Semitism, in recognition of Thomas’ integrity that has indeed brought her so far.
Hate thy neighbour!
Go back to your own country! (Everybody but the Aboriginal People who were here first.)
See, I feel like an achiever already.
Ever hear of the Sámi people in Sweden?
Does anyone know how the Basques are treated in Spain?
The Sámi (or Laplanders) are indigenous peoples of Sweden and the largest indigenous ethnic group in Europe.
Sweden is touted as one of the most egalitarian countries in the world; yet, the inequality with which the Sámi are treated is astonishing. Even though legally entitled, their rights have been unafforded.
Many haven't even heard of the Basque people. According to international reports
they are ill-treated and tortured by Spain.
