I just read this NY Times article on the mass killings in Egypt, and I highly recommend you take the time to read it: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/15/world/middleeast/egypt.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0
This is incredibly disturbing on so many levels. I haven’t been keeping up to speed on current events in Egypt as much as now I think I should, so this was eye opening and I think a must-read. There is too much in the article to try quoting specific parts or recapping it; I think you just need to read the source, especially if you’re not up to speed.
There are so many thoughts and questions that this brings to mind… and I hope we can at least drive some critical discussion following these events.
