Remember when BO stood up and congratulated the revolutionaries that were taking down the Egyptian government? Remember when I said this would lead to control by the Muslim Brotherhood? Well, how does this grab you. Remember, this is the kind of change that BO supports.
CAIRO (AP) — Muslim mobs set two Cairo churches on fire overnight during sectarian clashes that left 12 dead and more than 200 injured. The deepening religious violence in military-ruled Egypt exacerbated an already chaotic and lawless transition to democracy.
Mobs of ultraconservative Muslims attacked the St. Menas church in the Cairo slum of Imbaba late Saturday following rumors that a Christian woman married to a Muslim man had been abducted. Local residents said a separate mob of youths armed with knives and machetes attacked the Virgin Mary church several blocks away with firebombs.
How do you like this? Never forget that BO supports this.
On Saturday just before the violence erupted in Imbaba, Shehata appeared with her husband and child on a Christian TV station broadcast from outside of Egypt and asserted that she was still a Christian and had never converted.
“Let the protesters leave the Church alone and turn their attention to Egypt’s future,” she said from an undisclosed location.
Sameh Fawzi, a Coptic scholar, said the new trend of attacks on churches and heightened tension between ultraconservative Muslims and Copts are taking place in the context of a weakened state and increasingly assertive Salafis.
The military rulers’ attempts to hold reconciliation sessions, instead of prosecuting those involved, only serves to reinforce the impression of the state’s weakness, he said.
You decide. Do you support a man who supports and encourages this kind of violence?
