Once again we see an Islamic supremacist blame the victims of Islamic jihad aggression for that aggression itself. Muslims bombed a Coptic church in Alexandria last month, murdering 21 people, and last Tuesday, Muslims murdered a priest — and Zawahiri has theÂ Islamic chutzpah to say, “The first among those who are responsible for setting the situation ablaze is the leadership of the Coptic Orthodox Church under the leadership of the one called Pope Shenouda III.”Â (Christians force Muslims to kill them …)
ChristiansÂ incite more interfaith tension by not thanking the Egyptian Muslim military officers for the gunfire, and compensating them for the cost of the bullets. “Egyptian Armed Forces Fire At Christian Monasteries, 19 Injured,” by Mary Abdelmassih forAINA, February 24 (thanks to JW):
(AINA) — For the second time in as many days, Egyptian armed force stormed the 5th century old St. Bishoy monastery in Wadi el-Natroun, 110 kilometers from Cairo. Live ammunition was fired, wounding two monks and six Coptic monastery workers. Several sources confirmed the army’s use of RPG ammunition. Four people have been arrested including three monks and a Coptic lawyer who was at the monastery investigating yesterday’s army attack.Â “Allahu akbar” against Christian monastery with tanks

Somehow these poor folks got the idea that Islam mandates a death penalty for apostasy. If only they had listened to Hamas-linked CAIR or any number of other Muslim groups in the U.S.! “Islamic Radicals Kill Christian Convert in Somalia,” by Alison Matheson for theÂ Christian Post, February 24:
As was the case with theÂ demonstration by Copts to demand a secular Egyptian government the other day, coverage of this story in the Western media has been minimal, despite thousands of Copts’ protesting in the aftermath of this murder.
“Coptic Christian priest killed in Egypt, setting off new protests by religious minority,” from theÂ Associated Press, February 23:
ASSIUT,Â Egypt – A Coptic Christian priest has been killed in southern Egypt, triggering street demonstrations by several thousand Christians.
Other reports indicate that the priest’s safe was opened and property stolen, (by the police?) with police seemingly eager to settle for robbery as a motive. ButÂ one other article also notes that neighbors heard the assailants “chanting Islamic slogans.
