In memory of the events of September the World

Corresponding day Tuesday, September 11, 2012 marks the day Tuesday, September 11, 2001 the day of the attack on the United States and the bombing of the World Trade towers.

However this sad anniversary of young people gathered naughty in front of the U.S. embassy and tried stormed and burned flag for the film, which is abusive of the Prophet, which has spread on, expressed saw the matter in a way Error Event thereby contributed and promote bad Video.

In addition to show Egypt badly at this time, also contributed to the spread of idea Islamophobia"intimidate non-Muslims from Islam and Muslims."

We do not urge violence and invite to express opinion but peacefully against any attack on any religion or embassy or the promotion of violence, security forces also secured the entrances and exits of the embassy not to happen any losses.

Hence I am addressing an apology to the American people about what happened today because it is backwardness and ignorance and I I appeal to them that not all Egyptians are ignorant and can not afford it anniversary sad, and these young people have expressed their anger at the Video that is abusive of the Prophet incorrectly and what they did offended Islam and Egypt and Egyptians.

We Egyptians consider this way backward and insulting to express opinion and agree to break into the embassy because it does not fit with our revolution, we were peaceful revolution calls for democracy and freedom and still, but not without its ignorant, or fanatic, I hope that what happened does not affect the relations between the Egyptian people and the American people who support our revolution wholeheartedly.

Nice post, Lobna

I appreciate your message, Lobna. There have been many times that I have felt equally ashamed of the actions of Americans or Christians or Westerners or any other group which I may be considered a part of. Reasonable, open-minded and tolerant people can separate the actions and behavior of the fanatics and extremists from the general population. I just wish that the media showed events with more balance. It's too easy to see the horrible things people are doing around the world. And too uncommon that we see the good.

That's why I love platforms like World Pulse. It gives people like you and I the chance to show another side of what we see on the news. Thanks for writing this.

Peace,
Kara-Amena

Thanks Kara

I am happy with this comment .And what is happening to intimidate minds and make a group of people afraid of the other, whether at the level of states or within each state What is the only policy.

Therefore, I want you and I and our ideals work together to propagate ideas straight and think outside the box and look at things from all sides and put ourselves in the other.

In order that I wrote I apologize to the American people because what is happening what is only Policy part of them some want to show Egypt badly and the other side Racing candidates for the presidential elections of the United States to protect the American people from radical Arabs, knowing that in all countries of the world where there are extremists, and Atmanh that are not affected by the policy relationship the American people, the Egyptian people and treats everyone like you and me in this form flexible open-minded.

I always wish to communicate with you.
