Burning of Virgin Mary Monastery in Deir Mawas, Minya, Bishop Tadros Monastery in Fayoum and Sohag Diocese’s services building.
Brotherhood supporters continue to demolish and burn Atfih Diocese in Giza [Greater Cairo], a large number of churches in Minya [Upper Egypt], Fayoum, Assiut, Suez, Arish [Sinai], Luxor [south Egypt], the Bible Society headquarters in Cairo, and the Franciscan school in Suez.
I have been praying all day for the safety of Christians in Egypt and beg you to also pray.
I am amazed by the force behind the defeat of Obama's Egyptian terrorist regime.
The camp — once a bustling site where the protesters read the Quran, talked of politics and demanded the military reinstate Morsi — was destroyed before their eyes. Wooden tent frames that held up roofs of blankets and tarps were ruined. Posters of Morsi were torn down, people said....
Mohammed Ibrahim, who is in charge of the Cairo police, said security forces cleared the Rabaa camp following international levels of self-restraint, with minimal causalities. He said Morsi's supporters stormed 21 police stations and damaged or torched seven churches nationwide.
At the end of the day, al-Ashry sat — dejected — at a mosque near the Rabaa sit-in. He didn't know where the leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood were, where to find the leaders of Gamaa Al-Islamiya — an Islamist group he supports — or anyone leading those backing Morsi.
"No one knows what happened," al-Ashry said.
On this blessed day when an army of angels carried the body of their Queen to Heaven, I think I do.
This is a very interested article, obviously written from the perspective of empathy for Obama's jilted Islamic forces in Egypt.
Cry me a river.
Check out the placement of quotations marks:
On July 11, Ottawa raised just such a pipsqueak “concern.” Stephen Harper’s government was more emphatic as it condemned the shooting death of a Coptic Christian priest near El Arish. “The targeting of religious leaders is unacceptable.” Following the second massacre, July 27, in which about 80 protesters were gunned down, Ottawa was “deeply concerned and appalled” — and fixated on its clarion call for respecting “religious minorities,” namely Coptic Christians...
respecting “religious minorities,” namely Coptic Christians.
Barack Obama was also mostly silent about the two massacres. So was David Cameron. So was much of Europe. They had refused to call the July 3 military coup a coup. In fact, John Kerry passed the perverse judgment that in toppling the elected president Mohammed Morsi, the Egyptian army was “restoring democracy.” American annual aid of $1.3 billion was to continue.
It’s only now after Wednesday’s bloody massacre of pro-Morsi protesters that Obama stirred himself to shed crocodile tears.
Feel the love.
