Muslim Brotherhood Out, Killing Christians In

Originally published by the Gatestone Institute.
In scattered locations across Egypt, wrote Morning Star News, mobs of hard-line Muslims enraged over the deposing of the countrys Islamist president [Muhammad Morsi] this week attacked Christian homes, business[es] and church buildings and were suspected in the shooting death of a priest.
None of this should come as a surprise. As Gatestone Institute reported right at the beginning of the June 30 revolution, anonymous letters addressed to the Copts threatened them not to join the protests, otherwise their businesses, cars, homes, schools, and churches might catch fire . This message is being delivered with tact. But when the moment of truth comes, there will be no tact.” Several popular and influential Brotherhood leaders and supporters made the same threats, including Sheikh Essam Abdulamek , Dr. Safwat Hegazy , Dr. Wagdi Ghoneim, and Sheikh Abdullah Badr.
True to their word, now that Morsi and the Brotherhood have been ousted, Egypts Christians are being heavily targeted by Brotherhood supporters. On July 3rd, in a village in al-Minya in Upper Egypt, the services building of St. George Church was looted and torched. Likewise, the evangelical Saleh Church in Delga was attacked and caught fire, while the villagers, the majority of whom are Copts, had their homes and businesses looted and torched. Two Christians were injured from the fires. According to the pastor of Delga Catholic Church, who was able to escape the fire only through the roof, supporters of former President Morsi are engaged in continuous and unprecedented harassment of Copts. He said that a number of those people broke into the homes of Christians at gunpoint, terrorizing women, children and seizing gold jewelry and furniture. He contacted security forces, pleading for help. Witnesses said security arrived next morning.
Another Islamic mob tried to attack the main Coptic cathedral in Qena, but the military fought them off. The group moved on to attack Christian-owned homes and businesses in the area, sources said. Also on Wednesday (July 3), a mob attacked the Church of the Holy Virgin in the coastal town of Marsa Matrouh with stones, but the military also repelled them. It is a miracle no one was killed in the attacks a woman told Morning Star News.
Unfortunately the miracle did not extend to other Copts attacked by Brotherhood supporters. On July 6, Coptic Christian priest Mina Cheroubim was shot dead as he left his church in al-Arish, north Sinainear the same area where al-Qaeda linked Brotherhood affiliates attacked and expelled Christian Copts months ago. Four more Christians were slaughtered by Muslims in Luxor province. The attack is being positioned as collective punishment: some Muslims accused Christians in the village of killing a Muslim, although Christians deny it, saying the Muslim was killed by another Muslim, but the mob decided to scapegoat the Copts. Dozens of Christian homes and businesses were looted and torched. Hundreds of Coptic villagers fled.
This is just the beginning, said one Coptic Christian woman from Upper Egypt who was interviewed. They wont be happy until they steal everything we own and kill us all. How can anyone be full of so much hate? If I took my eyes off God, I would shrink and die.
Another Egyptian woman, incensed at the overthrow of the tyrannical Brotherhood, and like all Brotherhood supporters, scapegoating Egypts Christian minority, declared, I am a religious [Muslim] Egyptian lady. I tell the Christians one word. You live by our side! We will set you on fire! We will set you on fire!
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
The stupid lady can't count, that was 17 words.
Happy Ramadan Everyone!
“..Killing Christians In...”
That’s the idea.
I will ask, with sadness, a single question. More than one.
In the light of a world-wide PERSECUTION and actual killing of Christians, does the CHRISTIAN world maintain such a silence.
Where is the protests from Rome? I do not hear or read of the anger of the Protestant world. Protestant Christian leaders proudly seem to be more concerned with gay rights, LGBT rights, fairness than the slaughter of co-religionists.
The killing of priests, ministers and the burning of houses of worship around the world bring only a concern with something else.
The Christian world witnesses a KRISTALLNACHT on a virtual daily basis, and turns its collective back. WHY?
It’s Ramadan. They’re just in the holiday spirit (hungry, hot, po’d, looking for an infidel to vent on).
