Dhimmier må ikke istandsætte deres vantro helligdomme. Deres bygninger skal forfalde eller overtages af muslimer, siger koranen. Derfor bliver kirker i Egypten brændt af. Vantro og muslimer er heller ikke lige for loven. Hvad havde de tænkt sig, disse skøre koptere? Demokrati for vantro, kvinder uden tørklæde og andet udskud? Ret til fredelige demonstrationer? Ikke tale om.
Egyptisk stats-tv omtalte da også de demonstrerende som kristne hunde og opfordrede muslimer til at gå på gaden og foranstalte angreb, fortæller The New Yorker. Stats-tv spredte desuden falsk information. Ingen egyptiske soldater omkom. Men stats-tv hævdede, at der var dræbte soldater, siger Foreign Policy. Resultatet af militærjuntaens og de muslimske angreb var hele 40 døde demonstranter, skriver Walid Phares og mere end 300 sårede. Flere hundrede er meldt savnet. Så kan de lære det:
Egypt’s Spring becomes deadly for Coptic Christians
October 10, 2011 by Walid Phares
The credibility of the Arab Spring took a bloody hit on Sunday, October 9, when Egyptian Army forces shot dead more than thirty Christian Copts and wounded scores of them. In addition, the action by the Army was paralleled by armed men, described as Salafi Jihadists by Coptic sources, seen also shooting and hitting demonstrators with knives. At a few weeks from the legislative elections in Egypt, this violence impacts the debate about the Spring of Egypt but also challenges US and European policies towards the current and perhaps the forthcoming Government. Can the West support – and fund – a regime that kills members of the weakest community in Egypt, months after the fall of Mubarak?
International news agencies, including AP, were late in reporting the real casualties, as Coptic sources have identified more than 30 bodies seen on the streets at the time this article was filed (forty by the latest unconfirmed account). Hundreds of demonstrators who were protesting against the attacks on Christian Churches in the south of the country were also wounded and dozens were taken to hospital.

Egypt: Destroying Churches, One at a Time
by Raymond Ibrahim – October 10, 2011
What clearer sign that Egypt is turning rabidly Islamist than the fact that hardly a few weeks go by without a church being destroyed, or without protesting Christians being attacked and slaughtered by the military?
The latest chaos in Egypt—where the military opened fire on unarmed Christians and repeatedly ran armored vehicles over them, killing dozens—originates in Edfu, a onetime tourist destination renowned for its pharaonic antiquities, but now known as the latest region to see a church destroyed by a Muslim mob.
This church attack is itself eye-opening as to the situation in Egypt. To sum, St. George Coptic church, built nearly a century ago, was so dilapidated that the local council and governor of Aswan approved renovating it, and signed off on the design.

The Egyptian Military’s Crimes Against Humanity
by Raymond Ibrahim – October 11, 2011
Sunday, the Egyptian military opened fire on thousands of Christians protesting in Maspero, Cairo. In the words of one Christian eyewitness, armored vehicles “came at great speed and drove into the crowds, going backwards and forwards, mowing people under their wheels. The most horrible scene was when one of the vehicles ran over a Copt’s [Christian’s] head, causing his brain to explode and blood was all over the place. We got a clear message today that we are no first class citizens.”
Various numbers of casualties have been given; AINA asserts that at least 35 Christians were massacred, many beyond recognition, and over 300 wounded; hundreds are still missing. Graphic pictures of some of the slain can be seen here.

What is happening in Egypt to the Copts is the Kristallnacht of our times
Whatever the origins of the West’s unwillingness to recognise the existence of religion as a causal agent of conflict, this is a naivety which we can no longer afford to possess.
by George Igler on 11 October 2011
Some years ago in Dover I fell into conversation with an elderly man on a bus. He expressed an admiration for our nation whose depth I found perplexing.
He said this was due to the “restraint” Britons had shown when reacting to 7/7, an attack which had then only recently taken place.
He was genuinely amazed. Had the religious minority in his own country perpetrated such an act, he told me, the churches that were regularly set ablaze there, would be being torched with their congregations still inside.
