destruction of Pyramids coming as Sufi shrines are destroyed

I’m at an amazing writer’s retreat in the Yucatan peninsula and am enjoying ocean, glimpses of jungle, the inspiration and companionship of my fellow writers here and at directed, structured and luxurious work space and work time.  So, my novel is coming along very well and quickly.  I am grateful for this marvelous opportunity.  

That’s the personal news.  

On the political front I’m upset to read about the possibility of the pyramids being destroyed.  From Commentary here: Islamists calling for pyramids’ destruction

And, while that destruction is only in the first phase of distressed imagining, in Mali, radical Islamists are tearing down Sufi shrines, here: Sufi Shrines in Mali Destroyed

Not sure when people in this country will wake up to the vast and horrid destruction that this particular brand of Islam (Radical Islam) is bringing to the entire world, including the Islamic world, but I do hope – it is soon.  



Destroy Israel – Egyptian Protestors are hopeful

“Destroy Israel” watch these Egyptian protestors talk of destroying Israel.

Time will tell, what all of this comes to and means. This sentiment, does not bode well.

From here, and thank Pamela Geller as usual for her fearless reporting: Egyptian Protestors

I’ve been watching all of this with ah, great interest. Have some other posts to put up as well.
