<quoted text>The litter is a big issue-right there was a bit of a deal with trying to reform it before and the whole stupid swine flu (lets kill all the pigs!) debacle messed up the "system" which actually involved, heavily, christian businesspeople in the trash removal industry and the system they had for getting rid of trash. The reforms forgot that there are very traditional ways of doing things and they did not take it into the plans that they would be disadvantaging several different groups. The acts of the govt may have been well intentioned, but the execution hurt Christians particularly as they had the market on the various trash removal services. The results also hurt Muslims and the environment. There is actually a very effective, but inefficient system of recycling 'recycleables' here, but the rest of the trash is picked through and scattered in the process. The govt needs to observe the way it is (not) working now and find a process that provides employment at a fair wage and gives respect to people who work hard and rewards to those who work effectively and productively. That is the problem here, the system does not reward effective work-no one is really accountable because it is just so casual.
That sounds like the USA government.

How come the Muslim Egyptian Government isn't treating Christians like they used to be treated around the time of Muhammad where there were real and pure Muslims? Here's an actual historical treaty giving the terms that Christians must accept to prevent Muslims from killing them after they were already conquered

Much worse, the trash services are not regulated at all or if they are, there is NO enforcement. I think the local neighborhoods need to be more separate and have smaller areas to manage with individuals responsible for them. I don't think they really have that here. It is just CAIRO GOVERNATE, which is like 10s of millions of people. Dividing it into neighoborhoods, like the local police districts, or smaller, would be more effective way to manage problems and deal the specific issues facing a community.

And lots more besides, That is a treaty If the one I know of to the monks at San Katrine) that was in effect from the time of the prophet and has been renewed for the last 1400 years. There is no legalized discrimination against Christians in this country, unfortunately, like in the states, there are idiots who don't care what the law or the spirit of the law is, so they break the law or try to manipulate it, depending on if they are the people or the ruling parties.

Jihadis Threaten to Burn U.S. Embassy in Cairo

Jihadi groups in Egypt, including Islamic Jihad, the Sunni Group, and Al Gamaa Al Islamiyya have issued a statement threatening to burn the U.S. Embassy in Cairo to the ground. According to El Fagr, they are calling for the immediate release of the Islamic jihadis who are imprisonment and in detention centers in the U.S. including Guantanamo Bay: "The group, which consists of many members from al-Qaeda, called [especially] for the quick release of the jihadi [mujahid] sheikh, Omar Abdul Rahman [the "Blind Sheikh"], whom they described as a scholar and jihadi who sacrificed his life for the Egyptian Umma, who was ignored by the Mubarak regime, and [President] Morsi is refusing to intervene on his behalf and release him, despite promising that he would. The Islamic Group has threatened to burn the U.S. Embassy in Cairo with those in it, and taking hostage those who remain [alive], unless the Blind Sheikh is immediately released."

But they are following the clear example of Muhammad when they do this. They are being the real Muslims? Are you a Muslim? not if you don't agree with them.

When are liberal apologists going to realize that these aren't a few wayward Muslims, these are people correctly following the example of Muhammad himself?? Just because it is uncomfortable to realize this, doesn't mean that sticking your head in the sand to avoid confrontation is going to work. In fact, it merely encourages them, just like Muhammad made treaties with people and saw their appeasements as something to exploit in order to gain time to grow strong enough to wipe those treaties out and conquer them. This is not the behavior of some bad Muslims who are misinterpreting Islam, it's the behqavior of Muhammad himself. It's right there right in front of everybody's nose, but since it's uncomfortable, people simply ignore it and live in denial.

Keeping him locked in a cage is greater punishment.

Death would only make him a martyr to the crazy Islamics.
