Copts Arrested

Egyptian police have detained two Egyptian Christians for their work on the Web site of a Christian Arab group based in Canada.

OK... I doubt that the Egyptian authorities will take advise from me, but I'll volunteer it anyway:

Dear Authorities,

Such actions are not in your interest. They can backfire in many ways such as:

- You will harm your reputation and the reputation of the whole government.
- Human rights organizations will jump at your throats.
- You will give ammunition for opposition and opponents to attack you.
- You will generate more international pressure on your government.
- You will get alot of negative press coverage around the world.
- Copts in Egypt and abroad will feel threatened.

And what will you gain?

Nothing... Believe me.
