Elder over at EOZ has, once again, come up with the news of how the muslims of the Religion of Peace are living with their neighbors. This little story highlights how some muslims in Egypt are doing their best to show the world that they are in no way associated with those muslims who attack civilians.
Or, maybe not....
In the "District of Rain" in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, an ugly scene of Muslim militants burned a church, after prayers Friday (29/11), chanting "God is great ...! God is great!",
Early in the morning two Sundays ago, hundreds of Christian Egyptians quietly slipped into a former underwear factory where they had discreetly set up a church and held their first service. Bells rang and hymns were sung.
A crowd of angry Muslims quickly gathered, threw stones at the building and burned banners that said, “No to the church.” They tried to storm the gates, clashed with police and chanted, “The church has fallen, the priest is dead,” according to witnesses. In fact, no one died, but 13 people were reported injured. ...
... In one southern city, a Muslim man was killed in clashes over the expansion of a Coptic Orthodox monastery, and Muslims torched Christian villagers’ homes because a priest was seen holding Mass inside a house...
In Ain Shams, where about 4,000 Christian families are vastly outnumbered by Muslims, congregants bought the factory three years ago and quietly began setting up their church.
Muslims bought a parking lot across the street and started building a mosque — one of about five within a few blocks. It was from these mosques that the angry crowd rallied when word spread that the Copts were at prayer.
But at their first service, the Christians announced their presence with bells and hymns — even distributing chocolates outside the building [Ed: That was their mistake. chocolate? Don't they know that sharing of chocolate is tantamount to declaring war?!?!] — apparently hoping the church would be accepted as a fait accompli. Instead, the riot erupted.
Anthony ended up being led out of the church protected by police while the mob hurled insults and stones.
