The silence from Human Right organizations as well as NGOs, the UNO and Muslim Ummah towards the current situation of Egypt and also Syria – where one power-hungry man, Asad is sticking to power and causing the situation to worsen -- is really shameful. the chemical attack in Syria makes me wonder whether we are men on the loose from the lunatic asylum; how shameful that we are thinking of resorting to use of such weapons on fellow Muslims.

If something like this had happened in any European country we would have seen people all over the world showing sympathies and would have played an active part to stop this genocide. What is astonishing is that we don’t see any Muslim countries coming out against these barbaric acts as well.
