The Assyrian International News Agency reports a Coptic priest in the same region was threatened late last week by a mob of Muslims that surrounded the church of St. George.

Father George Thabet was serving the morning mass when hundreds of Muslims, some armed, surrounded the church vowing to kill him.

Eye-witnesses reported the Muslims chanted, “We will kill the priest, we will kill him and no one will prevent us..” One Muslim said they would “…cut him to pieces.”

Security forces arrived and escorted Father George in a police car to the Coptic Diocese in Minya. Youth from the church remained to defend the building from the Muslims.

    They never stop trying to improve the world by killing everyone in it except themselves.

      Well, I just can’t help seeing that there is no word in MSM about this behaviour…, so most of the people consider that Islam is not sooo bad. Then others consider it’s just their “culture”…😦

    More from the “religion of peace.”

    I’m afraid it’s a done deal under the so-called Freedom Party, under the Muslim Brotherhood:

      Great link, really interesting reading. But, unfortunately that’s not all:

      The US signaled last week that it plans to continue business as usual when it comes to arms sales to the Egyptian military, despite the recent revolution in Egypt and continued anti-government demonstrations there.

      On Friday, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency notified Congress of a possible sale of 125 M1A1 Abrams tank to Egypt – the first large arms deal since Hosni Mubarak was ousted from power in February – including associated weapons, equipment, parts, training and logistical support at an estimated cost of just over $1.3 billion.

      If approved, the deal would increase the number of Abrams tanks in Egypt from around 1,000 to 1,130.

      According to the notification to Congress, Egypt would receive 125 tanks, parts of which would be produced in Egypt, as well as M256 Armament Systems, M2 .50 caliber machine guns, 7.62mm machine guns, spare parts, maintenance, support equipment, personnel training and other related elements of logistics and program support.

    And this is supposed to be the “religion of peace”? Well, this administration does consider the Muslim Brotherhood to be peaceful negotiators. But their is evidence which proves that the Muslim Brotherhood is anything but peaceful. The Obama administration is living in some kind of fantasy land.

    Great site!

      Thanks, Teresa!

      The Obama administration is living in some kind of fantasy land.

      The problem is that he sees that fantasy as reality…
