Amr Khaled, the influential Egyptian Muslim televangelist, called for an internet campaign against sectarian incitement after attacks targeting an Alexandria church in Egypt killed 23 and injured dozens on New Year's Eve.

His website asked young Muslim and Christian youth to use social media venues such as Facebook and Twitter to mobilise against sectarian strife. He says although the church bombing killed tens, sectarian strife could cause the death of hundreds or thousands for years to come.

Khaled, who said that sectarian tensions were a cause of the violence witnessed on New Year's eve, believes that actions taken online can be effective; that a mouse click could make a difference and that sectarian speech online may have contributed to the violence witnessed.

Khaled's campaign urges people to "share fy el Khier" or share "in doing good", which is the slogan of his campaign. He is asking users to change their Facebook profile pictures to the campaign's logo and to spread the campaign's video.

Act to prevent a mafia from forming in the Egyptian Government
In my humble uninformed opinion: Consider the parallels between Iran's Revolution and Egypt's. The military leaders are strongly advised by the US, and then mafia rise into government. The mafia enslaves the peoples, to support the military. The military's self-serving interest is to promote a mafia in the new government; whether they know this or not. The cabinet of officials is replaced by assassination and control enacted by the killing of their families. Mafia rise into power. In my opinion, there MUST be "institutional structure" put into place to fight against the mafia taking control. Or all of the ministers will be under the thumb of a war lord, and the ministers will simply become figure heads. Do, or die. Regardless of their moral standards, ministers will have to cause the killing and subjugation of the people, or die themselves. Please do not let the mafia rise into power in Egypt. Look at Iran for examples of what not to do. The current parallel
