Perhaps for the last time ever, I feel the need to issue The Highly Coveted ‘Ya Think? Award™ to the Alarmed Human Rights Groups.

Did you think that mutual tolerance and respect would break out across the land? Really? More importantly, do you understand that the misery that will be Egypt for years to come has a great deal to do with your naive thinking.
