How dare those dhimmis try to build a new church! Don’t they know that is forbidden?
Misunderstanders of Islam attack again in Egypt. If only they would listen to all those who are ready to tell us here at Jihad Watch that Islam is peaceful and tolerant, and that it is we who are stirring up hate by reporting on the misdeeds of its legions of misunderstanders. But how passing strange it is that in Egypt, with so many millions of Muslims, misunderstanding of Islam would be so widespread! Has anyone addressed this strange global collapse of Muslims’ ability to teach their religion properly to their children??
“Egyptian church clash injures 12,” from the BBC, with thanks to Null:
At least 12 people were injured in clashes in Upper Egypt when a group of Muslims attempted to stop Christians converting a house into a church.
Security officials said the Muslims set fire to building materials for the building in Odaysat, near Luxor.
Several members of both communities were reported injured in the subsequent clashes, as well as two policemen.
It is the latest in a series of violent sectarian incidents in Egypt in the past few months.
A security source quoted by Reuters said the Christians did not have official permission to build the church.
Oh, well then! Their papers are not in order? Kill them!
Police arrested 10 young men and the owners of the house, reports say.
Correspondents say curbs on building churches have been one of the main grievances among Copts, although these restrictions have been eased recently by presidential decree.
Yes, and you can see how respected that decree is.
