When Pope Benedict XVI spoke out in January 2011 against the persecution of Christians in Egypt and elsewhere in the Middle East, Al-Azhar University in Cairo, the world’s most prestigious Sunni Muslim institution, reacted angrily, breaking off dialogue with the Vatican and accusing the Pope of interference in internal Egyptian affairs.

I saw one of the FOX Cairo correspondents saying that there are (unconfirmed) reports of numerous coptics being killed. He mentioned one rumor of 15 being gunned down in a small village elswhere in Egypt.

While I’m glad he didn’t report it as fact without proof, I fear that if it is true it won’t be reported anyway.

The free world is in a war with Islam. Many people just don’t realize it.

There was a story on CNN last Sunday morning that showed the Coptic Christians living on the garbage heaps of Cairo. Their only way of making a living is gathering the garbage from the city and bringing it to their “Trash City.” They used to raise hogs for meat, feeding them the garbage, but last year the damnable Muslims used the swine flu scare to order all their hogs to be slaughtered, depriving them of meat.
Someday God will have vengeance on those who are so cruel to Christians and their children. In the meantime, we must pray for all who suffer for the Christian faith.

Coptic Christians are being killed all throughout the mid east..they are being beheaded, their daughters kidnapped and forced to convert to Islam..their churches bombed and burned and all we hear from our State department and the president is ((crickets))

It seems the leaders of our country believes in freedom of religion for islam , not so much for christians
