Amid Violent Protests, One Small Voice of Wisdom

Before you write off Egypt, you might want to listen to his young boy. In a sea of sectarian hate and religious extremism, this boy shows a profound understanding of civil liberties and the separation of mosque and state.

As the streets have erupted in bloodshed and death threats, this little voice speaks the loudest if only someone was willing to hear him.

With some in Congress debating foreign aid to Egypt, here is a solution. Find this boy and give it to him. I feel pretty confident that he will know how to spend it.

  1. Assuming the translation of the boy’s Arabic was reasonably accurate, that boy is extremely knowledgeable, sensible, and articulate. He is also very brave for stating his take on the situation in Egypt for others to see and hear. However, I fear for him. The Muslim monsters would not give a second thought to killing anyone who talks like that, both to silence him and to send a message to those who prefer freedom over tyranny and Brutalitarianism.

  2. I admire the kid for going against the Qur’an not being for the so called discipline of their wives upon their beds. Going against the Qur’an is a fatal thing in Islam. It is like tearing pages out of it in their mind. When people en mass destroy that book not caring what people do to them is when they will save their soul changing the face of Islam. Religion and state are the same not having Christ in either one.
    West hide the truth. Middle East saw a lie thinking it was truth. I will teach the truth that is a book never taught.
    9 places in KJV says the heart figuratively is to be circumcised not sexual organ at all. Deuteronomy 30:6, Deuteronomy 10:16 ;Jeremiah 4:4 , Jeremiah 9:26; Col; 2:11-15;Acts 7:51;Lev: 26:41;Rom:” 2:29, Romans 3, 30.
    King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.) 1 Corinthians 12:23 :
    And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.
    Religions through the state in USA teach that those parts are uncomely not honorable. What USA honors is the dead. Islamic law teaches that the same parts are uncomely being less honorable. One side learned from the other never coming to a knowledge of the truth. Jesus is God. What western religions and west do not teach is that Jesus is God with blood in him for a time until he rose from the dead to be exactly like he was when Abraham and Moses saw him when his glory was not shining.
    Not being for the suffering of the poor is admirable, but Islamic law is godless. How can following it change what is?

  3. I should have added, if a drone doesn’t get him first. Sorry, my cynicism knows no bounds.

  4. There is hope yet. Remember him. We will hear more of him as he matures.

  5. Good kid.
    His parent’s should be proud.
    And what raff said with the addition of “our pols should also think more like this young man”.

    Seriously, that brought a big smile to my face. Almost as big as the puppy picture smile.

  6. A great young man with a head on his shoulders. Now, if we can only get the politicians to think like this young man, Egypt might have a chance. By the way, don’t send any aid to Egypt. Any money going there will go to arms and graft for one side or the other.

  7. SWM, You may be correct about his parents, but I think this kid definitely has a mind of his own. He also gets my vote. This kid seems to have a better grasp on the situation in Egypt than the Obama Administration. Although, that is damning w/ faint praise.

  8. I would vote for him, and I think his parents could very well share his views and have taught him well.

  9. I rather stop foreign aid completely to all countries and let them all fend for themselves. If individual people want to give money to countries let them

  10. “Find this boy and give it to him.”

    I imagine it would at least be better spent!
    Instead of being divided by thieves and murderers as the spoils of their crimes.

  11. Sometimes the wisest ones are not the corrupted ones….wisdom knows no age…..I agree…..
