Watch it and Weep
Watch it and weep over the loss of innocence. That's what little Egyptian children are learning?? Instead of love, they teach them hatred? A little girl, not much older than my own little girl swaddled in a veil and talking about "hate"....what a disaster. Where are her toys and colorful books and childhood fairy tales and nursery rhymes and games with her little friends??
I'm not against teaching children about their religion and faith. In fact we're buying a children's illustrated Holy Bible for our daughter for Christmas. But to completely rob a child of all the joy and innocence like this is a crime.
The big disaster is that a lot of Muslims will tell you "so what? Jews kill Arabs every day in Palestine. What about what they teach their kids from Talmud about hating Muslims (although that doesn't make sense because I suspect the Talmud was there before Islam came about)"
The fault in that logic (if you can call it that) is that by the same token, all Americans should teach their kids to hate Muslims after September 11. All Australians should have also done so after the Bali bombing. All Copts should teach their kids the same as a result of what we suffer everyday at the hands of our Muslim Egyptians...Where would it end?
American, European and Aussie kids went out and collected donations to help Tsunami victims and Pakistani earthquake victims without a thought of what religion they are...At the time where the Saudis who are obscenely rich as well as staunchly Muslim sat around watching. In the mean time little Egyptian girls are being taught to judge others and hate those different from herself before they are even taught how to read or write.
And they wonder why the world thinks they are backward?!
