#1 It's not the Christian's location that pisses off the muslims, it's their existence

#2 Yes indeed. But a location that you can armor up makes it easier to defend your existence. Right now the Copts are easy pickings.

#6 Don't count on any support from the Hussein administration.

#7 How about we just give them Egypt? They'll do a better job of protecting the historical sites, and will likely be better hosts for tourism.

The Muslims can go back to Arabia.

#8 You WANT the Copts to be stick with the ungrateful SOB's who will try to kill them daily Rob? No, we've seen what happens when a Christian rules over a Muslim in the ME. Better to give them a piece of land Egypt can't cover/care about. Personally I think think an exchange of people is the best option. Trade the Copts for the Paleo's.

Then again I'm being cynical thinking of human beings as trade objects. Doesn't mean I can't wish for a 'mutual immigration' though.

#9 nice idea but the Egyptians wouldnt want the Paleo's. Egyptians speak the "highest" form of Arabic and the Paleo's apparently speak the "lowest" so not sure that would work.
