A group of Islamist militants killed Mina Haroan Abboud, a 39-year-old Orthodox Coptic priest, in el-Arish, Sinai Peninsula. AsiaNews sources have confirmed the story.
The murder took place today, in the early afternoon. A group of men, probably Islamic extremists, stepped out of a car and stopped the priest as he walked in the street. After shooting the clergyman at point blank, they fled.
Fr Abboud was immediately taken to hospital but died a few hours later.
Meanwhile, tensions are rising across the country after yesterday's pro-Morsi demonstrations. Sources told AsiaNews that the Muslim Brotherhood is taking its revenge.
In Cairo, people are fighting on rooftops, and Brotherhood members are hunting down young organisers of the 30 June mass rally."They are going house to house, pointing rifles and machineguns. They are attacking with all sorts of weapons," witnesses said.
Ah yes, Obama’s people out doing their dastardly deeds.
‘probably Islamic extremists’....uh, no. Authentic Islam, the way it’s supposed to be ‘practiced’.
I'm all for redundancy in cases like these.
Have you noticed this crap started after Zippy’s emergency meeting about 12 to 15 hours later in the White hut?
From "a simple way to pray" by Martin Luther to Peter, the barber of Wittenberg:
Dear Lord God and Father, convert and control. Convert those who are still to become children and members of your kingdom, that together we may serve you in your kingdom in the right faith and true love and pass from this kingdom begun here to your everlasting kingdom. Control those who would not withdraw their might and means from disturbing your kingdom. May they be dethroned and in humiliation stop molesting your kingdom.
Save Thy people, O Lord,
and bless Thine inheritance.
Grant victory to Thy Church over her enemies,
and protect Thy people by Thy Holy Cross
A genocide against Christians.....Memory Eternal
