World News: Egypt Christians furious after clashes kill 25 – thestar.com – by Tamim Elyan and Edmund Blair
An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:
Egyptian Christians turned their fury against the army on Monday after at least 25 people were killed when troops crushed a protest using tactics that deepened public doubts about the military’s ability to steer Egypt peacefully towards democracy…
Prime Minister Essam Sharaf, appearing on state TV in the early hours of Monday, said the government’s attempts to build a modern, democratic state were being disrupted by security concerns and talk of plots against democracy.
“We will not surrender to these malicious conspiracies and we will not accept reverting back,” he said before the interim cabinet met for an emergency meeting.
My (typo-corrected, one 2-part and additional single) online response to the above linked-to article follows:
“Egyptian Christians turned their fury against the army on Monday after at least 25 people were killed when troops crushed a protest using tactics that deepened public doubts about the military’s ability to steer Egypt peacefully towards democracy.” Let’s be utterly clear, the Egyptian revolution didn’t succeed. For one thing, It can’t be allowed – by the [corporatocracy] and it’s ‘Christian’ leadership centered in the U.S. – to succeed for democracy there would result in the request by the people that destroyers of democracy who claim to champion [it] leave their region. Does uncle Sam, whose blood is the money of capitalism and the slavery it is based upon, leave when asked?
Additionally, as the quote I inserted into part one of this post shows, corporate-owned media cares – in a negative way. It isn’t part of the solution. Only our caring is part of the solution. Only caring by a majority is part of the solution. We have a too free press here – if it isn’t truly, the way governments need to be but aren’t, by and of and for the people. You can just hope that by chance a media that blithely talks about the bloody Egyptian military rulers failing to steer democracy, will do the right thing, but that just proves that [you’re] a sheep, which is what you’ve been turned into by the corporatocracy. We don’t want monsters running our nations, period. Only employees for corporate-owned media have accepted the defeat of the Egyptian revolution, of the people. Their paycheques help with their clarity, clearly.
The thing is, Christianity is in a sorry state. It wasn’t for no reason that Jesus prophesied that there’d come a time when he would denounce Christians, telling them “Get away from me you workers of lawlessness, for I do not know you.” (Matthew 7:21-23) I believe in revolution – by the people against their oppressors. But I must qualify that. I believe that it is wrong to oppress and enslave and exploit others. I believe you can only squeeze people so hard for so long before those people will break down, which may or may not result in a violent reaction. The people are not automatically sinning when they resort to violence in self-defence. Otherwise, I don’t believe that the lasting solution to the problem of those who choose to live by taking life from others can come from imperfect humans. It has to come from a higher source. It has to come from God, whose self-given name is Jehovah. Therefore, I believe in Armageddon.
Armageddon, for those who don’t know. is simply the event – call it a war if you like – that will occur when God finally calls this experiment in man’s self-rule off. He only allowed it because we (Adam and Eve actually) wrongly chose to learn what independence from the Creator means. As a God of light, he decided that since questions were raised by that rebellion, egged on by another rebel, an angel, then he would allow time for them to be settled, once and for all. The issue of universal sovereignty was raised (Is God’s way good? The best? Is there another?) and it would therefore be settled, after which, in full justice and righteousness, Jehovah would deal with rebels very conclusively and rid us of their sick, perverted world. For all time. Otherwise, Where would the love be if this madness could return?
The third comment I tossed in follows:

He doesn’t want to revert to what? His army ran the show before. It runs the show now. And, Obama willing, it will continue to run the show and put the people in their place. Thanks Americans, for caring so little that you have allowed fiends like George W and Obama to run the world. Thanks a lot!
