Kafr Salamma updates
Here are some updates on the recent religious clashes in Alsharqeyah in Egypt: The situation is not resolved yet, with negotiations still being worked out between the authorities, the christians and the muslims. The Police is still afraid to step into town, but it did surround it to prevent anyone from the media from coming in. The deal they are working out right now is this: No more bloodshed, the christian guy responsible for the death of the muslim dude will sell his land to pay the muslim dude's family his "Diyah" ( monetary compensation for someone's death. It's an Islamic thing. It absolves you from the crime of killing them), and the muslims and the christians who went around and burned other people's houses will have to sell their houses and land and leave their village for good. That's the compromise they seem to be reaching right now, and I still can't decide if it's a good soloution or a bad one. What do you think?
