Police fired tear gas to disperse hundreds of Muslim protesters outside a church in southern Egypt Friday. The demonstrators were demanding an investigation into allegations that a Christian man sexually assaulted a 6-year-old girl. …

Flare-ups of violence between Egypt’s Christians and Muslims have become more frequent in the past two years in the wake of the country’s uprising that ousted longtime President Hosni Mubarak but also weakened security across the nation.

Egyptian Christians fear that the power vacuum that has followed Mubarak’s overthrow is giving ultraconservatives and extremist Muslims a freer hand to attack churches and Coptic property, especially in poor areas of the nation. …

The headline “Muslims and Christians clash....” always turns out to mean a mob of over 100 muslims attacked a handful of Christians, including children, for the crime of being Christian. Every time.

Headline “Muslims/Christians Clash” should properly read “Muslims carry out unprovoked attack on christians, those that could fought back, the rest were either raped or slaughtered”

The first question to ask is was there really a rape?
The second question to ask is where was the girls Uncle.
The third question to ask is have they honor killed the 6 year old yet.

They’re muzzies. If the allegation was a 6 year old boy was raped they’d be fine with it.

No, because it’d have to be a Muslim doing the raping. Same in the case of the six-year-old girl. Assuming anyone got raped at all. Of course, if a rape did take place and a Muslim did it, it’s suddenly not rape. This is a trumped-up excuse to attack kafir.

I don’t see the problem. Just because all moozlums want to either rape and murder your family or blow you into bloody pulp or slice off your heads...that doesn’t mean they are bad people. Hey, people, how’s about some tolerance around here. After is 2013.
