Citizens all over the world and within Egyptian borders, are horrified by the news concerning the man, Al-Sayed al-Essawy and his plans to fight and kill an innocent lion on June 25.
Al-Sayed al-Essawy states that he bought the lion for 25,000 EGP (U.S. $4,200) and has asked the Ministry of Interior to agree to hold the event in front of the Giza Pyramids. Our question to them: Do they wish for Egypt itself, as well as the greatest of human-constructed acheivements, to be remembered for such barbarity?
There is no doubt in our minds that Al-Sayed al-Essawy is a very strong man, however, he shows great ignorance and an inability to show the true strength of compassion for even considering this act. Man is no longer judged by his ability to bend and break life. Man must be judged by his ability to show mercy and compassion for all that lives, in order for us to better ourselves.
