* From Al Reuters. Read the last sentence: “Christians account for up to 10 percent of the population of Egypt and relations between them and the Muslim majority are usually harmonious. Disputes, most commonly over land, religious buildings or young women, sometimes lead to violence.”
* This is, of course, absolute bullshit. The Coptic Christian are the original inhabitants of Egypt and as dhimmi’s, they are constantly harassed and under siege. The plight of the Copt’s has been documented here and on many other anti-jihad sites, but is generally ignored by the main-stream-media or whitewashed with bullshit like above. There are no ‘disputes over young women’- what happens is that Muslims kidnap Christian women and force them into marriage with Muslims. Under the sharia courts of Egypt the Copt’s cannot get justice.
CAIRO, Dec 16 (Reuters) – Police arrested at least seven Egyptian Muslims after a riot in the southern city of Isna on Sunday that left at least 13 Christian-owned shops smashed up or burned and a church front damaged, security sources said.
They said a car and a motorcycle owned by Christians were also burned and it appeared the rioters had attempted to burn the church.
Tensions have been high in the city for several days with a number of incidents threatening to escalate into sectarian clashes. Police have upgraded their presence.
The tensions appear to have started when an angry crowd of Muslims surrounded and smashed up a Christian-owned store on Wednesday, where they suspected a Muslim girl was having sex with two Christian boys. Police beefed up security in the city after that incident.
Sunday’s riot comes after an altercation last night that saw a Christian shop-owner accuse a Muslim woman of stealing a mobile phone from his shop.
The woman was cleared by authorities and released.
(* of course! Stealing from Christians is not an offense!)
Egypt suffered its worst Christian-Muslim clashes in decades in 1999 in southern Egypt when 20 Christians were killed, 22 people wounded and scores of shops destroyed.
Last year, a 45-year-old Muslim man stabbed a Coptic Christian man to death and wounded five others in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria, sparking three days of sectarian clashes in which one Muslim was killed. Egypt says the attacker was mentally ill.
* The ‘mentally ill’ attacker suffered from a condition called ‘sudden jihad syndrome’- which often afflicts Muslims when they come out of the mosques after Friday prayers. The ‘sectarian violence’ crock is just that: complete bullshit. Shameful, but typical distortions and falsehood from Al Reuters.

Â * . . . Of rather more significance are the regulations designed to show, and indeed to stress, that the dhimmis do not belong to the arms-bearing classes.
* The dhimmi must ride an ass, not a horse; he must not sit his beast astride but sidesaddle, like a woman.
* Most serious of all, he must carry no weapons, and is therefore always at the mercy of any who choose to attack him. While armed assault on dhimmis is comparatively rare, there is always a sense of danger, as well as of inferiority, for those who may not bear arms in a society where it is normal to do so. The dhimmi was not alone in this disability, which also affected some other social groups, notably in the Arabian peninsula. He was, however, the most vulnerable.
* The dhimmi cannot and indeed may not defend himself even against such petty but painful attacks as stone throwing, done mainly by childrenâ€”a form of amusement recorded in many places from early until modern times.
* The dhimmi had to rely on the public authorities to protect him from attack or other harm, and while this protection was often, indeed usually, given, it inevitably faltered in times of trouble or disorder. The resulting feeling of endangerment, of precariousness, is frequently expressed in dhimmi writings. Id.
