Memphis, Egypt by bsargentina

On 24 February 2011, at the Christian Science Monitor, we read that ordinary Egyptians wish their revolution had never happened

According to the Christian Science Monitor:

1. In recent weeks, Umm Karim, a mother of four, has only been able to afford one meal per day.

"Her teenage sons both lost their jobs when the factory they worked in burned down in Egypt's revolution."

2. "Some Egyptians are beginning to wish that their own revolution had never happened."

3. "Shaban doesn't know how he is going to find money to feed his children dinner.

"Since the revolution started, he has not had a job."

Shaban wasn't involved in Egypt's protests.

4. In Shaban's town of al-Maraziq, building projects are halted and business ventures have been disrupted.

A mechanic in al-Maraziq says that business has declined.

He now pays more for paints and spare parts.

His 11-year-old nephew now misses going to school.

5. Umm Karim says: "I wish the revolution never happened."

Hopefully Um Karim will not have to worry about her sons set up as a terrorist to satisfy some US/Israel quota and disappearing in some gulag or murdered for protecting their mother should the police decide to rape her. Change means revolution, revolution means difficulties and hardship. This is why it is imperative to make it all well worth it by following it all the way through. Future generations will thank this generation including um Karim and family for their sacrifice.

Dear Genie,

The CIA coup in Egypt is intended to advance the agenda of Israel and its friends.

I hope you do not believe the lies of the mainstream mdia.
