When ur brothers and sisters r in danger .please , donít waste time and help them .unfortunatly ,these days .we saw muslims prefer to do their personal life instead of helping to their brothers and sisters .they prefer to be far from politic and only think to ordinary events like their salary and changing design of their home .i was thinking in our religion politic is very special aspect of Islam .we only pray and donít have action .we only watch murders and has forgotten mean of Jihad .we watch hateful crimes against our dears in Myanmar and r silent .we hear unfair vote of Egypt about its nation and donít say any thing .i can't imagine killing of more than 500 muslim in a country that has millions muslims .if every person only have 10 members in his family this means thousands people .This population wants to be silent and watch death of their dears ?They want to wait until this tragedy happen ?why they donít want to speak with their government .i believe if nation want to do an impossible work ,it certainly happens

Greetings whitelion,

Forgive me but I want to ask because this is a thing I see all too often... your phrasing of 'can't imagine killing of muslim'...
Why not 'people'?  Would it be ok if the people they were killing were not muslim?  Is this just a language difference between us and how we say things? 
I can not imagine the rush to judgement to have 500 people executed as Egypt has just decreed.  There was no fair trial and this to me is barbaric action.  One  that I would not expect from what was once an advanced civilization.
asalaam,
Caringheart

Salam ,Caring heart .u r right ,thanks for reminding .I must edit my sentence violence against all is wrong . no difference among humans .I am not Arab ,too. And understood ur mind . there is not any difference among humans .all of us r creatures of 1 creator .color of our skin or our language or other features can't change this reality .it is our duty to defend from all people that need to our help .we can't say that we donít save life of a person for his religion because it is really against humanity .most of other religions such as Christians help us in very bad conditions like flood , earthquake and Ö we have this duty in front of them ,too. Unfortunately nowadays only clothes of some people r belong to 21th century but their actions and behaviors r same of stone age. Allah hafiz.

Thoughts:

Has anyone else, like myself, pondered about the Egyptians?
Here is a land, sitting in the middle of Africa,
but here is a people very unlike all other Africans,
they are a people distinct unto themselves, are they not?
Egyptians don't fall into the African category, the Arab category, the Asian category, the caucasian category, the Hebrew category....
Am I wrong?

When I read your above comment, my immediate thought was "of course Caringheart is wrong". As it turns out, it is my understanding of Egyptian demographics which is totally wrong.

I have always assumed that the "original" Egyptians are (primarily) the people we currently call Coptics, and the Muslims in Egypt are (primarily) Arab immigrants who moved into Egypt from the Arab Peninsula in the decades after Mohammad died.

From research I did today, I discovered:

1) "Egyptian" is considered to be both an ethnicity and a nationality
2) Egyptian Coptics and Muslims are essentially identical genetically, and
3) there doesn't appear to have been any significant mixing of Arab or other ethnic groups into the Egyptian people.

To me, the fact all Egyptians belong to the same, unique ethnic group makes the hatred between Egyptian Christians and Egyptian Muslims even harder to understand.
