Egyptian In Shreveport Prays For Peace

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, La -

The bloody battle between supporters of ousted Egyptian president Muhammad Morsi -- which includes the Muslim brotherhood -- and anti-Morsi protesters has caught the attention of the world. It's also taking an emotional toll on Egyptian American, Dr. Sami Bahna.

Dr. Bahna...Chief of allergy and immunology at lsu health Shreveport, mostly blames the Muslim brotherhood for the current chaos in the country he left back in the 1970s. Dr. Bhana is a Christian and cringes at the thought of what brother hood or pro-Morsi supporters would do to him if he was there.

Take a look at what happened to a Christian church in Egypt. According to reports this is surveillance video of Morsi supporters destroying it and setting vehicles on fire.

Bahna is happy that some of his extended family members are still unharmed. However he worries about their safety amid violence and uncertainty.

To get peace back it's going to take the western world...To know the reality and support the current government and the people what I see now is surprising and disappointing. That the western world and the united states they are getting distorted image of the reality even if they say they are neutral they are not neutral in my opinion "

He says it may take a while before the Muslim brotherhood

And Egyptian military leaders and civilian supporters on each side set aside their differences. Nonetheless he's hoping for a miracle

"we hope and pray...And by the way there are a lot of people praying inside Egypt and outside Egypt that peace will happen miraculously soon. Because the situation is critical we cannot afford more losses"
