Waiting for the outrage from liberals, Jew-haters, the UN, NGOs, guardians of historical antiquity, Barack Hussein Obama, the Brits, Egyptians, non-Islamists, the Presbyterian Church, the Methodist Church, palestiniasts, Hanan Ashwari, the Human Rights Council, Israeli leftists, Jewish frauds, Mahmoud Abbas, museum curators, Egyptologists, Samantha Power, the Vatican, and others, but nope, I am not hearing a single peep.

According to several reports in the Arabic media, prominent Muslim clerics have begun to call for the demolition of Egypt’s Great Pyramids—or, in the words of Saudi Sheikh Ali bin Said al-Rabi‘i, those “symbols of paganism,” which Egypt’s Salafi party has long planned to cover with wax. Most recently, Bahrain’s “Sheikh of Sunni Sheikhs” and President of National Unity, Abd al-Latif al-Mahmoud, called on Egypt’s new president, Muhammad Morsi, to “destroy the Pyramids and accomplish what the Sahabi Amr bin al-As could not.”
Where’s the outrage at Egypt? Aren’t palestinians supposedly starving in spite of the dearth of photographs portraying bloated bellies and sunken eye sockets? You see, there is no outrage because the world is afflicted with palestinianphilia. And it seems to be incurable. Via Jordan Times:
The Jordanian Professional Associations Council on Thursday said Egypt has refused to allow their Gaza-bound humanitarian aid convoy to enter its territory. Activists had originally intended to travel from Aqaba to the Egyptian port of Nuweibeh before heading by land to the Rafah border crossing with Gaza to express their solidarity with Gazans. The convoy of 150 activists and 25 trucks left Amman on Tuesday.
Why is the world silent on the Muslim persecution of Christians? Via Wall Street Journal:
A few weeks ago in the Egyptian city of Marsa Matrouh, after a mosque’s imam exhorted them to cleanse the city of its infidel Christians, called Copts, an enraged mob of 3,000 angry Muslims went on a rampage, destroying 18 homes, 23 shops and 16 cars.
400 Copts barricaded themselves in their church for 10 hours until the frenzy died out.
This was only the latest of more than a dozen such attacks during the past year as waves of mob assaults have forced hundreds, sometimes thousands of Christian citizens to flee their homes.
In each incident the police invariably arrive after the violence is over. No Muslim to date has been convicted for any of these crimes.
Al-Azhar, the world’s preeminent Sunni Islamic institution, has contributed to this widespread hostility by publishing a pamphlet declaring the Bible a corrupted document and Christianity a pagan religion.
Al-Azhar’s textbook for high-school students states that if a Muslim kills a non-Muslim, he is not subject to capital punishment since the superior cannot be punished for killing the inferior.
Hezbullah activity in Egypt is/was performed with the full knowledge of Iran. Via MESI:
The publication of Hizbullah’s subversive plan against Egypt and the exposure of a Shiite group headed by a Hizbullah activist that planned to act against Egyptian targets diverted attention from the challenge that Hizbullah has made against the very foundations of Lebanese authority. On April 3, 2009, Hizbullah published its political platform in advance of elections to the Lebanese parliament scheduled for June 7, 2009. The document calls for the abolition of sectarian politics and for the enactment of a new election law that would alter the equation of sectarian forces in Lebanon. In this manner, Hizbullah seeks to destroy the foundations of the sectarian regime in Lebanon agreed upon in the National Pact of 1943 that has been preserved by the Lebanese state ever since. The abolition of the existing political system will advance Hizbullah toward its fundamental goal: the establishment of an Islamic state and a complete Iranian takeover of Lebanon. The scholarly analyses that define Hizbullah as a Lebanese national movement are baseless. What Lebanese national interests are served by subversive activity in Egypt? What Lebanese interests seek the transfer of Iranian arms from Sudan and Sinai to Gaza? What national Lebanese ideology seeks to subvert the delicate sectarian structure upon which the modern Lebanese state is predicated?
We already knew this. What took Mubarak so long to learn it? Via JPost:
Egyptian President Mubarak told a meeting of the Egyptian ruling party that “the Persians are trying to devour the Arab states,” according to a report in the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Jarida on Thursday.
