    One of the most fascinating details to emerge from Nonie's FIRST book was her experience at the American embassy in Cairo when trying to get home from a visit to her native Egypt. An Egyptian employee processing her visa noticed the Christian name of her husband, took her aside and demanded to know his religion. Terrified, Nonie lied and insisted he was a Muslim.

    Lesson? At the AMERICAN EMBASSY in Cairo, AMERICAN CITIZENS are sometimes bullied and threatened by extremist Muslim employees. One wonders the difficulties faced by Coptic Christians seeking to visit or emigrate to America? One also wonders the extent to which this is the rule at our embassies throughout the Muslim world?

      Actually, that isn’t so surprising when you take into consideration that according to the last PEW opinion survey 85 percent of Egyptians believe that anyone that leaves their religion should be killed. Which is especially startling when you realize that approximately 10 percent of the Egyptian population consists of oppressed Christian Copts. Thus, when you couple the above with the fact that per Sharia females are forbidden from marrying non-Muhammadan unbelievers, you can better understand why the Muhammadans at the Egyptian embassy were so alarmed.

        My incredulity is that it's the locals and not the US government who seem to be running policy at the embassy.

    I really like Jamie's interviewing style with informed intelligent people. He is prepared, professional, and gets the opinions of his guests, without forcing his views on his guest. Refreshing to say the least.

    NASSERISM, THE EGYPTIAN PEOPLE AND THE DOWNFALL OF MUBARAK -except

    "BILL O'REILLY AND MUBARAK THE BAD

    Friday night my jaw dropped as I heard a self-righteous, nonsensical Bill O'Reilly sounding off about Mubarak being a "bad guy" and deserving his fate. He was sounding off about his corrupt, oppressive and brutal regime and his billions socked away in Switzerland and elsewhere. WHAT A CLUELESS PINHEAD! O'Reilly is oblivious to the fact that his notion of a "bad guy" isn't shared by most Egyptians, nor for that matter are his Western democratic values. Indeed, by O'Reilly"s standard Gamal Abdel Nasser, Egypt's despot for 14 years, was a "bad guy," a very "bad guy," as much a corrupt, oppressive and brutal tyrant as Mubarak who, like Mubarak, filled Egypt's jails with tortured political prisoners.

    Yet Nasser, unlike Mubarak, was immensely popular with his people, as well as with the Arab street. In fact, most Egyptians and Arabs wept when Nasser died and millions turned out for his funeral. But these same Egyptians were bitter with Mubarak for thirty years and wanted him gone or dead. Why? Because unlike the corrupt, brutal, oppressive Nasser the non-ideological Mubarak failed to make them proud: proud to be Arab; proud to be Egyptian; proud to be Moslem; proud to have the truth. Oppression, brutality and corruption in a ruler are okay with Egyptians so long as he does them honor and makes them proud."
