Egypt: Muslims open fire on Christian’s home hours after Morsi promises to protect Christians

Which means that Morsi is either honest but ineffectual or dishonest and complicit.

“Copt home attacked after Egypt president promises security,” from AFP, October 6 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

AFP – Gunmen opened fire on the home of a Coptic Christian in the Sinai peninsula on Saturday, hours after a visit by President Mohamed Morsi to reassure Christian residents they would not be targeted again.

Gunmen “used automatic weapons when they opened fire on the house of a Coptic resident of Rafah hours after the president left,” a security official told AFP.

There were no reports of casualties, he said.

Witnesses told AFP three gunmen in a car fired on the house of Magdi Niruz before fleeing the scene.

Morsi had visited the Sinai peninsula on Friday to meet with and reassure families who fled Rafah to El-Arish after receiving death threats.

This “will not happen again,” Morsi told a group of local Bedouin tribal chiefs and other residents of El-Arish.

“Your security is our security,” he said.

“What happened is an individual case which represents neither Egypt nor its children, Muslim or Christian. It’s crime for which the perpetrators must be held responsible,” MENA quoted Morsi as saying.

According to residents and officials in Rafah, on the border with Gaza, Christian families fled to El-Arish about 30 kilometres (19 miles) away after having received death threats from Islamists.

Leaflets were circulated in Rafah demanding that the Coptic community leave or be killed, residents said. A shop owned by a Coptic family was subsequently machine-gunned….

    Robert, note the tainted commentary:

    Hundreds of Muslims threw stones at police officers on the Temple Mount on Friday afternoon, following a week of confrontations between rightwing Jews and Muslims there.

    *********************************************

    Right, the whole violence would never have started had not the “rightwing” Jews incited matters.

    Those evil “rightwing” Jews … why the hell can’t they get along with the peaceful muslims?

    Look at the credits of the reporter, you ARE GOING TO CHUCKLE:

    Hatred of infidels has increased in Egypt; Christian’s homes are being targeted, Jews no longer will be able to visit the Pyramids or see Cairo. Wearing a yarmulke or Star of David as a tourist is now risky. Salafist-Jihadists are everywhere.

    I believe that Morsi is probably all of these: ineffectual, lying, complicit. As for honest, I doubt it. Egypt is probably in for some very rocky times.

    Please don’t spread counter superstitions here. This is not the place.

    I actually wanted to say in reference to “Which means that Morsi is either honest but ineffectual or dishonest and complicit.”

    … How about the Copts’ deity? Ineffectual?

    The Copts’ deity said:
    “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jews. But now my kingdom is from another place.” John 18:36

    May the King of Kings change your heart.
