But for the AFP stringer its “Violent clashes have erupted between Muslims and Coptic Christians”– of course.
The 70 million Muslims are just defending themselves, against the tiny minority of extremist Christians, you Islamophobe!
Violent clashes have erupted between Muslims and Coptic Christians in the northern city of Alexandria and elsewhere in Egypt, newspapers reported on Friday.
One clash was sparked by a row between a young Copt and the son of the imam of the city’s Bilal mosque which resulted in dozens of the faithful from both sides fighting outside the Church of the Holy Virgin in Al-Dekhela district.
Several people were hurt and police arrested 13 Muslims and Copts on Thursday, said the independent newspaper Al-Masri Al-Yom which added that the incident underlined growing tensions in the port city and elsewhere.
Anti-riot police had sent 35 vehicles to patrol the district inhabited by members of both communities.
In another incident on Thursday, four people were taken to hospital and 35 arrested in the village of Saft Meydum, south of Cairo.
Violence erupted after a Coptic youth on a bicycle rode into a young Muslim girl whose relatives stormed into the streets heading towards the cyclist’s home intending to stone it, newspapers said.
Copts are estimated to form six to 10 percent of Egypt’s 76 million people.
* Copts are the remnants of the indigenous population of Egypt who is all but wiped out by their Muhammedan overlords. But you will not hear anything about their plight from Irene Khan or other Muhammedan agit props who have infiltrated human rights organization like Amnesia intentional…
Hamas Destroys Christian School and Church
Now that there are no Jews in Gaza and Hamas is in control, they’re
beginning continuing the process of driving out the remaining Christians: Gaza’s Christians fear for their lives.
Christians living in Gaza City on Monday appealed to the international community to protect them against increased attacks by Muslim extremists. Many Christians said they were prepared to leave the Gaza Strip as soon as the border crossings are reopened.
The appeal came following a series of attacks on a Christian school and church in Gaza City over the past few days.
Father Manuel Musalam, leader of the small Latin community in the Gaza Strip, said masked gunmen torched and looted the Rosary Sisters School and the Latin Church.
“The masked gunmen used rocket-propelled grenades to storm the main entrances of the school and church,” he said. “Then they destroyed almost everything inside, including the Cross, the Holy Book, computers and other equipment.”
Musalam expressed outrage over the burning of copies of the Bible, noting that the gunmen destroyed all the Crosses inside the church and school. “Those who did these awful things have no respect for Christian-Muslim relations,” he said.
