Younger generations in the west have become much wiser and open minded compared to older generations. Hopefully this will continue and move our country in a positive direction. However many adolescents have become lazier, very spoiled and less respectful. Is this change similar in Egypt? Have younger generations become more open minded towards other religions and ethnicities? Do you think they will bring wonderful changes? Have they also lost respect for their elders or is it the same?

What are stereotypes about the west that you have in Egypt? About customs, clothing or punishments for offensive behavior? Serious or humorous? As an example, stereotypes some people have about Egypt in the West are sandy deserts, pyramids and camels. I do understand this isn’t correct though

Are Coptic Christians in Egypt Given Equal Rights? What is your opinion of the issue in the article below?

Al-Azhar asks Coptic Church to denounce US religious discrimination claims-Al Masry Al Yohm
Pope Shenouda III of Alexandria shaking hands with Dr. Ahmed El Tayeb, Al-Azhar's new Grand Sheik, March 23, 2010. El Tayeb is named Al-Azhar's Grand Sheik following his predecessor's, Sheik Mohamed Sayed Tantawi's, death few weeks ago.

Al-Azhar attempted to persuade Egypt's Coptic Church on Thursday to rebuff a US report claiming that Christians in Egypt were discriminated against.
The Coptic Church had--for the first time--welcomed an annual US report on religious freedoms, saying there was indeed discrimination against Christians in Egypt. The Church held the government responsible for the report's conclusions, since it had ignored previous criticisms.
The Egyptian Foreign Ministry, for its part, rejected the report, saying that Washington had no right to assess religious freedoms in the country.
The Islamic Research Academy, which is affiliated with Al-Azhar, will hold a meeting on 6 December to discuss the report following consultations with church representatives.
Al-Azhar spokesman Ambassador Mohammad Rafaa al-Tahtawi said the objective of the meeting was to take a "patriotic stance" representing all citizens, both Muslim and Christian alike. He said Al-Azhar considered the report "unacceptable interference" in Egypt’s domestic affairs.
The US State Department's international religious freedoms report, released Wednesday, details alleged abuses of religious freedoms around the world. This year's report criticized “the practice of religious discrimination against Christians and Baha'is” in Egypt, pointing out that they did not enjoy equal representation in high-level government positions.
The report went on to claim that converts from Islam to Christianity were subject to numerous restrictions, the most noteworthy of which was the refusal of the authorities to issue them new national identity cards reflecting their conversion to Christianity.
