The world stands silent. The individual must rise up and defeat this evil. It's just that simple.
More from the new Egypt that big media adores and boot licks.
Coptic Christian Student Murdered By Classmates for Wearing a Cross AINA In mid-October Egyptian media published news of an altercation between Muslim and Christian students over a classroom seat at a school in Mallawi, Minya province. The altercation lead to the murder of a Christian student. The media portrayed the incident as non-sectarian. However, Copts Without Borders, a Coptic news website, refuted this version and was first to report that the Christian student was murdered because he was wearing a crucifix.
"We wanted to believe the official version," said activist Mark Ebeid, "because the Coptic version was a catastrophe, as it would take persecution of Christians also to schools." He blamed the church in Mallawi for keeping quiet about the incident.
Today the parents of the 17-year-old Christian student Ayman Nabil Labib, broke their silence, confirming that their son was murdered on October 16, in "cold blood because he refused to take off his crucifix as ordered by his Muslim teacher."

Nothing to see here, move along, everything is fine with the religion of peace.
Obama must be defeated if the Copts are to be saved. Perhaps someone will remember that we give Egypt 2 billion a year in foreign aid to support the peace with Israel (which is dissipating fast) We have commanding votes with the IMF and World Bank, and the Egyptian economy is in drastic shape. In sum, we have a hammer, but under the Clinton admin we will never use it.
Jay Leno’s wife says this is culture, not religion.
Nothing to see here. Move on.
Looking at the state of American schools (especially urban high schools), they seem like the most likely places in this country for one to be murdered for thinking or dressing differently.
Makes Obama happy
