Destroying Churches in Egypt: One at a Time
Posted in the Minneapolis Forum

if they were mosques, the liberal socialist muslim president would be upset.
What clearer sign that Egypt is turning rabidly Islamist than the fact that hardly a few weeks go by without a church being destroyed, or without protesting Christians being attacked and slaughtered by the military?
The latest chaos in Egypt—where the military opened fire on unarmed Christians and repeatedly ran armored vehicles over them, killing dozens—originates in Edfu, a onetime tourist destination renowned for its pharaonic antiquities, but now known as the latest region to see a church destroyed by a Muslim mob.
This church attack is itself eye-opening as to the situation in Egypt. To sum, St. George Coptic church, built nearly a century ago, was so dilapidated that the local council and governor of Aswan approved renovating it, and signed off on the design.
It was not long before local Muslims began complaining, making various demands, including that the church be devoid of crosses and bells—even though the permit approved them—citing that “the Cross irritates Muslims and their children.”

These EOC Christians made the dumb choice of becoming involved in the internal workings of Egyptian politics.... The MB wants revenge and see's them as bankrolling, and masterminding their ouster (far-fetched yes, should these EOC Christians have been smarter though also yes.... at least until the dust settles now is not the time to shoot your foot off)

Hey, what did you expect, it's the "muslim way"...
Muslims are still living in the 7th century, then we import them into this country, so they can enter our universities and learn how to build IEDs, nuclear weapons, nerve gas weapons, and other weapons of MASS DESTRUCTION, with "our" blessings... Isn't that nice... because we have so many university professors here who think that we have shafted the middle east for so long, but who have forgotten the
sacrifices of our OWN soldiers, over many generations, so EASILY

Egypt was a civilized, beautiful tourist destination under Mubarak.
It's now a smoldering, deteriorating mess, being ruined one block at a time by 'the Brotherhood' and the followers of the Religion of Peace.
BUT, Obama said "we don't take sides!" What a disgrace.

It would be best to just leave it up to them and not care at all.(This inculdes sending ZERO money FOREVER.) Although Obama has no foreign policy so we'll see what happens
