But not the greatest minaret in the world...
Resource Majors, Egypt, & Gaza
In December 2008, the Japanese Government decided to provide emergency assistance to Gaza in the wake of Israeli's attack on the Hamas office and so on in Gaza.
Specifically, in February 2009, 29,000 blankets, 20,000 sleeping mats, and 8,000 vinyl sheets arrived at Gaza.
However, not only material assistance but also spiritual assistance must be needed for people in Gaza, since we can confirm an extreme state in the blocked city.
Will the regime change in Egypt be good news for the Gaza people?
SECTION I: Resource Market Leaders
I-1: Iron Ore
Global iron core trade is controlled by only three majors: Vale (Brazil), Rio Tinto (UK/Australia), and BHP Billiton (UK/Australia).
As the human civilization today is still based on crude oil and iron, this situation must be of a great concern of peoples in the world.
I-2: Top Suppliers of Other Resources
Barrick Gold (Canada)
BHP Billiton (UK/Australia)
Rio Tinto (UK/Australia)
De Beers (South Africa)
Anglo Platinum (South Africa)
Norilsk Nickel (Russia)
Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold (USA)
Norilsk Nickel (Russia)
Samancor (South Africa)
Talison Tantalum (Australia)
q) Coking Coal
Again, the core natural resources for the present material civilization are controlled by major companies that belong to a handful of countries. In other world, stability of the world depends on political, social, and economical stability of these countries.
It should be noted that Islamic nations do not play a major role in other fields than crude oil.
Additionally, China is very aggressive to take part in this control of natural resources.
And Christ Jesus said: The more you are given free, the more you must give free.
In addition, now you know what G20 implicates and why the World Cup Soccer Games and the Olympic Games should be held in Brazil or South Africa.
SECTION II: Significance of Egypt
There are only two nations where Abraham, Moses, Christ Jesus, Alexander the Great, and Caesar visited or passed through: Egypt and Israel (Palestine).
Though they were all ancient persons, the significance of Egypt has come to surface again beyond a 2000-year time gap.
For example, even the very fate of President Mr. Barack Obama, in terms of the 2012 Presidential Election, seems to depend on coming situations in Egypt.
For another example, even the very fate of the nation Israel, in terms of its hegemony in the Middle East in the 21st century, seems to depend on coming situations in Egypt.
Anyway, if Egypt is useless to help Muslims in Gaza, it must undergo a change.
On Egypt's border with Gaza, little has changed
Despite assurances, Palestinians still meet with abuse when crossing Egypt's border.

Many travelers coming from Egypt are held at the desert crossing for days, where soldiers and border officials verbally abuse them...
For many in Gaza, these border troubles give rise to hostile feelings towards Egypt.
“Do you know what it means to bluff?” asked Ahmed el Ashi, spokesman for Gaza’s Ministry of Health.
He said that patients sent to Egypt for treatment from Gaza — where the health care system has been sapped by the blockade and overwhelmed with patients — face many of the same troubles crossing the border as everyday travelers making the journey without medical permission.
Mahmoud Daher, director of the World Health Organization in Gaza, said that each month about 1,000 people need to travel to Egypt for treatment. About 80 percent of those are eventually allowed to pass through Rafah terminal, although in the last year the World Health Organization said between 35 and 40 people have died while awaiting clearance to travel.
Even only for Gaza's sake, the Mubarak regime should be replaced.

What do you read in this data?
The Buddha said:
"Do not burn splinters of wood, thinking the fire would make you clean.
A man cannot remove his uncleanness using a method that works only on man's appearance.
Instead, I make the inside of my mind emit brightness.
Oneself well cleansed and controlled to be directed to eternity is brightness."
According to a teaching of true Buddhism, it is what a man does but not how he was born that decides what he is.
Joh 2:5 His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.
Joh 2:6 And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.
Joh 2:7 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim.
