Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and families of this tragedy.

 

Some of our regular visitors around the World, might wonder why it took us few days, before posting anything about this tragedy.  As we are sure this attack came as a shock to the entire world,  it's intensity and outrageous violent result were a direct hit to any human being that has any kind of feelings.  

Guilt by association was our initial reaction, as Egyptians, Arabs and Moslems, especially, if you live abroad, specifically in North America and particularly in the USA.   Many of us have lived here many years, in many cases longer than we've ever lived in our birth countries.  We know for a fact that we have enjoyed the freedom, democracy and above all have been living in peace and harmony.

As we've mentioned on several occasions, since the start of "The Egyptian Castle" almost four years ago, we've stayed away from two issues, politics and religion, but stood right by any issue that touched human lives in general, affecting the lives of innocent people, and spoke up for the right of everyone to live with dignity and in peace.

It is our duty to report the facts and condemn violence against innocent people.  The cowardly terrorist attack that took place on September 11in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania  is something each of us will always remember.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all who've been directly affected by this horrific act.

While the attack took place on United States soil, it was in truth an attack on all the people of this world how we live, work and are able to interact with each other.

Terrorism is designed to emotionally demoralize people and immobilize countries, their citizens and businesses. The ultimate goal of any terrorist act is to bring society to a halt.

The attacks of this past week have created a challenge for all of us, wherever we live in the world. We have great  faith that all of us worldwide will rise to the challenges of reaching out to those less fortunate while moving ahead both personally and professionally in order to defeat the ultimate, paralytic goal of terrorist acts.

Contrary to the reports of abuse to Arab individuals, we have an obligation, at least from our point of view and based on our own experience living in the USA to report that we have not faced any kind of mistreatment or harassment from any American individual.  On the contrary, many of us have had nothing, but a show of love and compassion from Americans, assuring us their understanding of the situation and that not all Arabs or Moslems are guilty, while offering their own homes for protection in the event of an escalation of the situation.
On the other hand if you are an Egyptian, Arab or Moslem and have suffered any abuse, please write to us and tell us about your specific case
If you are an American and as we believe in a civilized communication and you have anything to say to us, we'll be happy to hear from you and post your thoughts here
To all Egyptians, Arabs and Moslems, speak up .. click here to send us an email highlighting your personal reaction and we will post your thoughts  in future updates.
