Just an exerpt from a story I got from Dcn. Greg Kandra’s Deacon’s Bench blog. The story concerns the latest violence in Egypt. The interesting thing for me was that the Prime Minister of Egypt chose to make an important statement on his Facebook page.
Social Media is certainly more relevent than some people consider it to be!
The government has appealed for calm. Prime Minister Essam Sharaf said he had contacted security and church authorities to contain the situation.
“The only beneficiary of these events and acts of violence are the enemies of the January revolution and the enemies of the Egyptian people, both Muslim and Christian,” he said on his Facebook page.
