Daily Mail: Muslim Hate Mob H/T Counter Jihad

Guilty? It’s a badge of honour say Muslim hate mob (and because we’re on benefits, the state will pay our costs)

Group sues US Government for labelling it terrorist

WASHINGTON: The People’s Mujahideen is sick and tired of being called a terrorist organisation by the US Government. So its leaders settled on a uniquely American strategy: they sued.

Yes, the group has done its share of assassinations, bombings, embassy attacks and killings of US troops. But that was long ago, and now the People’s Mujahideen says it has devoted itself to democracy and non-violence, and it would like very much to be taken off the State Department’s list of international terrorist groups.  More from the Sydney Moonbat Herald

One thought on “Nice People”

  1. Bishop Thomas
    Lecture on Copts in Egypt Quote: “The word “Copts” doesn’t ring a big bell for many ears. Sometimes [people here] don’t know what are Copts, who are they, and why they are called Copts. That’s why I felt that it is worth it to start by explaining why we are called Copts and the explanation might tell you a little bit of the dilemma we have.
    Egypt has been always Aigyptos and everybody knew Egypt as Aigyptos. In the 7th Century there was a shift in the name and the country. When the Arabs came to Egypt, or, rather, invaded Egypt, they could not pronounce Aigyptos because of the linguistic differences. They pronounced it Gypt; so they took away the “Ai” and the “os.” So Aigyptos became Gypt, and, when they wrote it, they wrote it with a “Ka” so it became “Copt.” The whole country was that of the Copts.
    But gradually, for various reasons, whether because of taxation or pressure of some kind, or ambitions in dealing with the leaders or the governors of the country, some people converted. Those who converted were no longer Copts. They became something else, and those who remained Christians were the ones who were called “the Copts.”
    Here I will stop and pose a question: What makes a person change the identity of his own nation and shift the focus of his identity from Egypt to become “the Arabs” even though ethnically they are the same persons? They are the same people, but no longer “Copts.” That’s a big question mark and that’s a big reason for what is happening now. The Copts have been always focused on Egypt; it’s our identity, it’s our nation, it’s our land, it’s our language, it’s our culture. But when some of the Egyptians converted to Islam, their focus changed away from looking to their own [language and culture]. They started to look to the Arabian, and Arabia became the main focus. Instead of looking to where they are, they start to look elsewhere. So the focus here has changed and they will never be called any more “Copts.” That’s a big shift and this is actually a very important reason for what is happening now.”
