Please Remove your Religious Symbols
from the Pyramids Photo

Dear Admin of the Facebook
Group titled "Egyptian Jews"

I would like to express my concern and voice my protest to the Group's Logo/Picture ...
(which places a Jewish Religious Symbol, Magen David or Star of David, over the Giza Pyramids. I will not share the Picture here as to avoid promoting it).

Egyptian Jews are Egyptian ... just as Egyptian Muslims are Egyptian ... Egyptian Christians are Egyptian ...

As a concerned Egyptian, I am disturbed by seeing any Religious Symbols being super-imposed or attached to the Pyramids ...

The Pyramids are Egyptian ... not Jewish ... not Muslim ... not Christian ... Just Egyptian ...

Kindly, Change the Picture of the Group as a sign of Respect to our Egyptian Identity ... which goes back in History beyond Judaism, Christianity or Islam ...

I hope you can understand this request ... and I apologize if I caused any inconvenience ...

But my shock came from some of my Egyptian Facebook fellows who support revival of Egyptian Identity and are active members in Groups like "Egypt Remembers" and "Egyptian Flag", etc., who saw that this picture is "nice and dandy because it shows how much Egyptian Jews love Egypt" !!

Excuse me for being ahbal ... or even worse, of being habel (masculine of habla) but ... how would Americans feel when someone uses Statue of Liberty and super-imposes a Crescent on it?


These are national symbols ... what next?



Make the Sphinx wear a Cross?

Or make Nefertiti wear a Hejab?



What is going on here? Would someone please explain it to me, because I am shocked.

Truly shocked and appalled.
