From Cairo to Bahrain

The time of euphoria is over. The young people of Egypt must now deal with their elders (and vice versa).

The Fifth Fleet is on the fault line in Bahrain.

Nicholas Kristof, Nick Robertson, and other amazing journalists are right there in Bahrain where the US has few options. Read Kristof in The New York Times.

What can Christians do in this time of danger as the whole Middle East seems to be a tinderbox? I don't take back anything I wrote in my blog about Egypt at http://ruminations.generousorthodoxy.org/2011/02/february-11-2011an-angel-in-whirlwind_13.html but the situation now is several danger-levels ahead of Egypt. We should be imploring the Lord of the universe to watch over this crisis and, in particular, to give wisdom to our presidential administration.
