Star Tribune Article RE: Sudanese in Egypt

Please check out the article from this week's Minneapolis Star Tribune. (Thanks Sarah!) I have met Isaac a number of times at St. Andrew's. Remember one important thing as you read it--this is American media. Therefore, take what is said with a grain of salt. The way Egyptians are portrayed is very negative, but it is not the attitude of Egyptians as a whole. In fact, most people I associate with are very interested in helping the Sudanese. It's mostly the uneducated who make problems for the Sudanese (and Westerners for that matter!).

One thing I didn't notice until someone pointed it out is the photo gallery of 8 photographs. Be sure to click on that link!
