Today’s NYT headline:Â
Tennessee shaken by “life-threatening pork allergy.”
They didn’t say it was to avoid offending Muslims. They said it was about avoiding food allergies.Â Tennessee elementary school bans pork to avoid offending Muslims

The Brotherhood protesters rejected all offers of compromise and all demands to disperse. The interim government’s response was heavy-handed, but the Muslim BrothersÂ choseÂ violent resistance â€” using women and children as shields (a tactic typical of Islamist terrorists).Â There Are Those Who Have Sympathy For the Devil–and Those Who Don’t
Over at NRO (viaÂ RaymondIbrahim.com), I discuss the Western mainstream media’s bias, by always siding and portraying as “innocent victims” the Muslim Brotherhood while ignoring the sufferings of the truly innocent victims of the Brotherhood, in this case, the Christians:
…[T]he abuse of Egypt’s Christians has reached unprecedented levels in the modern era. Al-Qaeda’s flag has been raised above their churches; their pope is in hiding under threat of death; a priest was shot in front of his church, and another Copt beheaded; their children are being abducted; nary a day goes by without a church being attacked or set aflame; hate filled graffiti covers their homes and churches.

Khairat Al-Shater is at the top of the Muslim Brotherhood pyramid. He was supposed to be the original Muslim Brotherhood president. Â Saad Al-Shater has gotten the impression that he can intimidate the United States. One wonders where he got that impression from. The Muslim Brotherhood may be about to overplay its hand in a big way. And that will be fun to watch.

“the kafirs gave us everything free, but we only want jihad….”Â
As Muslim Brotherhood supporters continue theirÂ jihadi rampage on Egypt’s Christian churchesâ€”several dozens have now been attackedâ€”it’s important to remember that their hostility is not simply directed to churches, but any and every expression of Christianity, including crosses, Bible stores, and even remote monasteries. Most recently, for instance, early Thursday morning (Egyptian time), hundreds of pro-Morsi riotersÂ set fireÂ to theÂ Virgin Mary Monastery, also known as Muharraq Monastery, in Quwsaya, Asyutâ€”one of the oldest monasteries in the world, which held many ancient Coptic manuscripts, likely now all turned to ash. Its flames reached surrounding Coptic Christian homes, setting some 15 aflame.
As I relate inÂ Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians, Islamic attacks on Coptic monasteries are as old as Islam’s invasion into Egypt itself, that is, nearly 1400 years. Thus the persecution of Egypt’s indigenous, most original, inhabitants, the Christian Copts, continues unabated, in the same patterns, and in the name of Islam — that is, in the name of the Muslim Brotherhood, which, to its automaton-like devotees, is synonymous with Islam itself.
They are following in the illustrious footsteps of the caliph Umar, who is supposed to have said when ordering the ancient, fabled library of Alexandria to be burned: “If the books agree with the Qur’an, they are superfluous. If they disagree with it, they are heretical.”
Here’s a list of the destruction.
