#MyJihad in Libya: Muslims attack Benghazi church, assault two priests

Will the Islamophobia never end? “Gunmen attack church in Libya’s Benghazi: state media,” from Reuters, March 3 (thanks to all who sent this in):

(Reuters) – Gunmen attacked an Egyptian Coptic church in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi, assaulting two priests, the official LANA news agency quoted the foreign ministry as saying on Sunday.

The foreign ministry said it “strongly condemned Thursday’s attack on the Egyptian church … and the aggression towards Father Paul Isaac and his assistant by the irresponsible armed men,” LANA quoted a foreign ministry statement as saying.

It did not elaborate on the attacks but said an inquiry committee involving the interior, defense and justice ministries had been formed and had “taken the necessary measures to secure the church and its occupants”.

It expressed “deep concern” over the attack, saying it was “contrary to the rules” of Islam and international human rights laws.

Libya’s small Christian community has expressed fears over Islamist extremism …

Indeed. It is a pity that the Vast Majority of Peaceful Muslims don’t seem to be able or willing to rein in these “Islamist extremists.”

    it just gets so tiring learning of these new atrocities on this and other such sites on such a regular basis. I’m just tired of being so sadden for the victims. Is it almost time for justice? destroy it and be done with the matter!

    I thought Ben Ghazi was dead, and his body swept under a carpet of lies…I don’t doubt these same gunmen participated in the attack on the US facilities…the ones Rasool O and Hillary said they would bring to justice…No one ever asks Rasool how the efforts to catch and punish these terrorists is going…

    ……………………….

    After our diplomats were slaughtered in Benghazi, remember how many “journalists” assured us that Benghazi was really a very “moderate” and decent place, and that this massacre was, really, nothing but an inexplicable aberration?

    I wonder how this violence against Christians fits into that meme? Better to ignore it entirely, if you want to be able to hang onto your denial…
