Coptic diocese says hundreds of Muslims assault church in Egypt

Hundreds of Muslim demonstrators assaulted an unlicensed church south of Cairo, an Egyptian Coptic Christian diocese said Saturday, in the latest assault on members of the country’s Coptic minority.

The incident took place after Friday prayers when demonstrators gathered outside the building and stormed it. The demonstrators chanted hostile slogans and called for the church’s demolition, the diocese in Atfih said. The demonstrators destroyed the church’s contents and assaulted Christians inside before security personnel arrived and dispersed them.

The wounded were transferred to a nearby hospital but didn’t elaborate.

    Boy those Coptic Christians sure are a bunch of islamophobes riling up those peaceful muslims. I mean, how can muslims possibly be the ‘best of people’ when there are infidels beyond the clutches of the umma who choose not to convert? By the way, do you know the muslim joke about there being ‘no compulsion in religion’? It’s a real knee slapper.

    So after their precious Friday prayers, full of righteous, religious fervor, they venture forth and attack infidels. A statement on the nature of the religion of “peace”, I would suggest.

    And why has our government been silent on Muslim on Christian violence and yet you are condemned if you suggest that Muslims follow Canadian laws and customs. Don’t bother Shithead Happysocks right now though he’s busy at another strategy meeting at some Muslim enclave with failed globalists from south of the border.

  • Arm Coptic Christians.

    I keep saying this.

    ‘The demonstrators destroyed the church’s contents and assaulted Christians inside before security personnel arrived and dispersed them.’
