    Are Muslims the Nazis of the 21st Century?

    This news hits close to home, since I'm a big Egyptophile....

    As if we need reminding of what we're up against!

    Terrorists have also attacked tourists in Egypt. One incident happened earlier this year at a resort on the Red Sea. Another incident happened a few years ago at one of the monuments (Dier El Bahari) near the Valley of the Kings (where King Tut is still buried). I believe people were killed in both incidents. I am certain that the attack at Dier El Bahari killed at least one American.
