Egypt: Muslim Brotherhood supporters attack 22 churches.

August 15, 2013

Meanwhile, the Brotherhood’s supporters in the U.S. continue to claim the moral high ground, aided by a bored, lazy, compliant and compromised media. “Egypt, Muslim Brotherhood assaults 22 Christian churches,” from Asia News, August 14:

Cairo (AsiaNews) – The Muslim Brotherhood’s anger for the forced evacuation of the pro-Mohamed Morsi sit-ins has been unleashed against Christians. In the last few hours, the Islamists have attacked seven Catholic churches and a full fifteen religious structures of the Coptic-Orthodox Church and the Protestant church. The attacks took place in Cairo and in the governorate of Sohag (Upper Egypt). The news was announced by Fr. Rafic Greiche, spokesperson for the Egyptian Catholic Church, who underlined the fact that the Western media has remained silent about the attacks. At the moment it is unclear whether any persons have been injured or killed.The reprisal occurred immediately after last night’s clashes in the neighborhoods of Nadha and Rabaa al-Adawiya, in the capital, and in Alessandria, el-Fayum and Suez, where the police brought in bulldozers to level the camps organized in the last few weeks by the Muslim Brotherhood. 95 persons died in the attack, according to army sources.

To avoid chaos, the Egyptian government has declared a state of emergency. (S.C.)
