Sunlight is the best disinfectant…

My post from yesterday, which I also forgot to put on here.  From Examiner.com

Sunlight is the best disinfectant.

Those were the words, of course, of former United States Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis.  In addition to being a smart man, he was also a wise one.

Egyptian Islamists and SCAF:

Peek-a-boo.  We see you.

Click on the first link I posted please.  A cursory view will likely yield the following reaction, “Oh, how terrible.  A young, dead Christian man mowed down by Egyptian soldiers and Islamists.”

Now look again.  Focus this time.

If you analyze the photo intelligently, you’ll likely notice something compelling.  To the left, there is the hand of a man, very much alive, photographing his dead Coptic brother.

Technology.  It’s really something, that technology.  It’s menacing and inconvenient.  It democratizes and, in this instance, shames.

It illuminates.  It’s like the sun.

Fortunately, Copts are equipped with plenty of it.  You see, we have mobile devices that access sites like Youtube.com and Yfrog.com.  It’s as easy as snapping and sending.  Our videos of you have already gone viral and are getting the attention of just about everybody, everywhere.

Or haven’t you heard?  No?  Copts don’t just live in Egypt.  They live in North America, in Europe, in Latin America–pretty much everywhere.  Once liberated from the economic discrimination that impedes their full success–the discrimination that you impose–Copts tend to do well monetarily.

That’s right.  Not only have we got iPhones and iPads, we’ve got cash.

We’ve got cash, we’re angry, and we no longer feel the need to stay silent.

In fact, we’re about to get loud.

Each time you expose yourselves for the filth that you are, we’ll be watching.  And the more we watch, the more political power we will gain here and where you least expect it–in Egypt itself.

The world, and Americans in particular, will not stand idly by as you continue to massacre Egypt’s original inhabitants.  We will document each violation of our human rights.  We will protest.  We will photograph and videotape.  We will take to Facebook, Twitter and Youtube.  We will write.  We will inform.  We will shout and push and pray.  We will reclaim what is rightfully ours.  We will do this, no doubt, with the help of very few of our Muslim counterparts.  (How I wish I was mistaken.)

Times have changed.  We needn’t rely on the same antiquated cables and handwritten letters Ambassador Morgenthau was forced to use when informing President Wilson of the Turkish genocide of the Armenians.

Snap and send, Coptic bretheren.  Expose and mobilize.  We’re here every step of the way to help fund and otherwise support you.  You are not alone.

Murderers hate sunlight.  Drench them with it and, in the process, disinfect your country.

To those of you who wish to help, I suggest you do the following:

1. Click here:

http://www.facebook.com/pages/Secretary-of-State-Hillary-Rodham-Clinton/129487700431185?sk=wall

It is the Facebook page for American Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.  Message her.  More than once if you can please spare the time.

Let us send one, unified message that is succinct and powerful.

2.  Cut and paste the following onto her wall:

WE’RE WATCHING; COPTIC BLOOD ISN’T CHEAP.

If we can flood her page with this one simple message, we’ll pressure her into acting on behalf of a people who have long been discriminated against and slaughtered en masse solely for their religious beliefs.

Remember: One Unified Message.

WE’RE WATCHING; COPTIC BLOOD ISN’T CHEAP.

Thank you.
