CAIRO – An off-duty policeman boarded a train and opened fire on Tuesday, killing a 71-year-old Christian man and wounding his wife and four others, the Interior Ministry said. The attack, less than two weeks after the suicide bombing of a church killed 21, sparked new demonstrations by enraged Christians who pelted police with stones in southern Egypt.
The church attack on worshippers leaving a New Year's Mass in the Mediterranean port of Alexandria touched off three days of riots and demonstrations by furious Christians who criticized the government for failing to protect them and vented over what they see as persistent discrimination.
All of the casualties in the latest attack were Christians — four of them women — raising concerns it will ignite a new wave of protests by a community still traumatized by the suicide bombing.
Soon after the attack, hundreds of angry Copts gathered outside the hospital where the wounded were being treated in the central Egyptian province of Minya and stoned police.
It was not immediately clear whether the gunman knew his targets were Christians. But four of the five wounded were Christian women who stand out in the conservative south as they would probably not have been wearing headscarves as most Muslim women do.
The ministry statement identified the policeman as Amer Ashour Abdel-Zaher, a 23-year-old Muslim, and said he boarded the Cairo-bound train at the town of Samalout in Minya province and opened fire on the passengers with a handgun. (Read more.)

Muslim Policeman Shoots Five Coptic Christians in Egypt
I guess it's hard to protect the Copts, when there are so many people willing to kill them, and when some of the killers have jobs as police officers. So much for Muslims protecting Christians in Muslim lands. Meanwhile, CAIR and ISNA are complaining about Islamophobia and bigotry in America.

I posted this on a Muslims blog but I think I will share it here as well.
@Blog Owner and the other Islamic Bigots on this blog.
The latest Islamic missionary work in Egypt has caused me to reflect on how someone could do the things that Muslims do in the name of their god’s. To not only take human life so callously but to throw one’s own life away in the process, is for me is beyond comprehension.
I can only conclude with the help of the “Peaceful Moderate Islamic bigots” on this blog that Muslims view non Muslims as less human or at least less then Muslims.
A prime example of this is Blog Owner himself. When he first posted on the Islamic missionary work, the title of the blog post was “Al Quida Kills 21 Christians in Egypt”. After it was pointed out to him that Muslims were killed in this Dawah campaign, he changed the blog post to “21 PEOPLE killed” . This is a tell, he only finds people to be killed if Muslims are the ones being killed.
Also when the blog owner was confronted with how Christians are to be “protected”\discriminated against, how they are to be separated and segregated, how they are denied the basic human rights that not only the US constitution calls for, but also the UN Declaration of Human rights (It should be pointed out that no majority Muslim nation has ever singed the UN declaration on Human rights.) His only response was “Pork is not good for you” or “take a chill pill, relax nothing to fear in this” in other words he sees nothing wrong with this level of bigotry.
Further prove of Islamic bigotry and dehumanizing non Muslims comes from the Islamic theology itself. The very fact that Islam teaches and Muslims believe they are the “Best of Creatures” demonstrates that Muslims view themselves as superior to non Muslims. There by making non Muslims inferior.
And finally in Islamic law itself, Non Muslims are worth less then Non Muslims.
From the Reliance on the Traveler.
“o4.2 The indemnity for killing a male Muslim is 100 camels.”
“The indemnity for the death or injury of a woman is one-half the indemnity paid for a man.
The indemnity paid for a Jew or Christian is one-third of the indemnity paid for a Muslim. The
indemnity paid of a Zoroastrian is one-fifteenth of that a Muslim.”
So woman are worth less then men, and Christians and Jews are worth less then Woman.
I guess it’s a good thing that Christians and Jews, and Zoroastrain’s are at least worth something so, Hindu’s, Animist, and other pagans are worth NOTHING.
So this how and why Muslim missionaries can do the things they do, in promotion of your religion. This is how and why seemingly everyday average people, can stone a woman to death, this is how and why they can whip a woman in public, this is why hey can blow themselves up killing themselves and and others in the process all for the name and glorification of your gods.
Like I said "The best weapon against Muslims is Islam, the best weapon against Muslim's is Islam."
Well it's good to know that Muslims are protecting Christians in Muslim countries.
I tell you if the Egyptian Copts are paying Jizya they should get a refund. What kind of service is this?
I figured the "human shielding" was a sham.
One community? Yeah, right.
The only thing linking Christians and Muslims is an Arab identity that is being eviscerated by Muslim religious fanaticism more and more every day.
Well, I don't know about you, but whatever the reasons each individual Muslims had for being there, I don't think it's right to assume that none of them had sincere intentions of protecting the Christians. I think it's just right to let God be the judge of their hearts.
I think we tend to forget the human being behind the Muslim sometimes.
Lots happened on Christmas. In Iran up to 70 evangelical muslim background believers were arrested and could face apostasy charges. Plus Nigeria attacks... Seems this year should be interesting...
