Egyptian Security Forces Stand By While Copts Murdered

How many examples like this do Western leaders need before they start to wonder what Islam teaches about non-Muslims?

Amnesty International—Security forces stood by and failed to intervene during a brutal attack on Coptic Christians in Luxor, Amnesty International said in a briefing published today. During the sectarian violence, security forces left six besieged men –four of whom were then killed and one hospitalized – to the mercy of an angry crowd.

In an attack lasting 18 hours on 5 July, four Coptic Christian men were killed and four others were seriously injured. An angry mob armed with metal bars, knives, tree branches and hammers attacked Christian homes and businesses in Nagah Hassan, 18 km west of Luxor, after the dead body of a Muslim man was discovered near the homes of Christian families. Despite local residents’ and religious leaders’ repeated calls for help, security forces on the scene made only half-hearted attempts to end the violence and sufficient reinforcements failed to arrive.

“It is outrageous that this attack was left to escalate unhindered in this way. Amnesty International has documented a series of cases in the past where Egypt’s security forces used unnecessary force or live fire during demonstrations, yet in this case they held back even though people’s lives were threatened,” said Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui, Deputy Director of Amnesty International’s Middle East and North Africa Programme.

correct me if I'm wrong...those egyptian security forces are being funded by the U.S.? If so, we're (the U.S.) is in support of killing Christians?

Yes, the U.S. does provide for the Egyptian security forces. However, it's not appropriate to say the U.S. "supports" killing Christians; the human rights violations are more of an unintended consequence of the funding than anything else.

Evidence that the U.S. government does not necessarily "support" everything its funding causes is the recent massacre of pro-Morsi protesters at the hands of security forces. We know the United States does not support that because the United States is the Muslim Brotherhood's b*tch.

That's not to say, however, that the United States government cares about Coptic Christians. It is more apt to defend the rights of persecuted Muslims than persecuted Christians.

Dear David,

The sad truth is that they know exactly what Islam teaches. I have said before and I say it again, only a monkey would read the Quran or have knowledge of its teachings and make the claim that it is compatible with democracy and the concept of "freedom for all."

These people are happy to swallow every manner of dissimulation whole because they have fat retirement promises and similar benefits to bank on.

I admit that this is nothing but speculation on my part but once again I say that only a monkey (or a bribe-eating politician) will claim ignorance of Islam's true nature.

God bless.

"muslims dont kill"
of course all the evidence is to the contrary. 9/11, 7/7, persecution of Copts in Egypt, Mumbai massacre, rockets fired from Hamas, etc.

Unless you think every bad thing done is actually done by Christians or Jews pretending to be Muslims. I guess there are a lot less Muslims than we thought!


Also, more name calling, now calling Seam on us "a monkey!" how moderate!

Acctually ur right at the part theres less muslims than u think most muslims live around the middel east.

Foolster41 said...

You mean the ones who are in the middle east who call for the annihilation of Jews and slaughter and subjugate non-believers?

I see, so it's not the violent muslims who are not real muslims, it's the peaceful westernized "moderate" ones who aren't!

Well you know theres different types of muslims. Well some muslims form groups.There are groups that try to make islam look bad thoses are'nt real muslims.

no, you know there is different groups right? or you had no idea.

Of course I know there are different groups of Muslims, but it isn't I who seems to be misinformed about Muslim groups. Perhaps you could point out which of those groups are peaceful ones living in the middle east? What orginizatioins or countries are they? Fatah? Hamas? Hezballah? Egypt? Malaysia?

You said that most real Muslims live in the middle east (implying westernized Muslims, who are by far more peaceful than those in the middle east are not the real Muslims.

"There are groups that try to make Islam look bad those aren't real Muslims."
So, they aren't merely misunderstanding their own religion, all those violent intolerant Muslims are actually secretly non-Muslims (why would someone want to make their own religion look bad?) trying to make Islam look bad? And you wonder why people don't take you seriously!
