Morsi Muslims 'Rage' Against Copts

egypt-mapCAIRO, EGYPT (Worthy News)– Mobs of Muslims enraged over the forceful removal of the Muslim Brotherhood-backed Mohamed Morsi from office have retaliated against Christians across Egypt, according to Morning Star News.

The attacks came as part of nation-wide protests that culminated Friday in what Morsi supporters called a "Day of Rage".

And it was: hours after the Egyptian military announced that it had expelled Morsi and his cabinet from office, reports of attacks against Christians and their properties by Brotherhood supporters began to surface.

The first attack came Wednesday in the village of Delgia where dozens of Morsi supporters attacked Al Eslah Church, looting the building and attacking local Coptic-owned homes; the mob then moved on to St. George Catholic church in Delgia, pelting it with rocks and setting its rectory on fire, according to Morning Star.

Later that same day, Egyptian troops prevented Muslim mobs from attacking both the Church of the Holy Virgin in Marsa Matrouh and the Coptic cathedral in Qena, so the mobs looted local Christian-owned homes and businesses instead.

On Friday, The Egypt Independent reported that after a Muslim was killed in a fight with a Copt in Naga Hassan, west of Luxor, Muslims began looting and burning dozens of Christian-owned homes and businesses, later attacking the Church of the Virgin Mary in downtown Luxor.

Samia Sidhom, managing editor of the Weekly Watani, said attacks by Morsi suppporters came as no surprise.

"Everyone was expecting they would take their revenge."

Sidhom said people wanted Morsi out because he was more interested in consolidating the power of his Freedom and Justice Party, a political proxy of the Muslim Brotherhood, than putting Egypt on the path to prosperity.

"Their priority was not the Egyptian people, but establishing an Islamic caliphate; they said they would be inclusive — that they would make Egypt a prosperous country, but once they got into office, they did the exact opposite."

In the days leading up to the successful anti-Morsi petition, Morsi's supporters began threatening Christians via Brotherhood run mass media outlets. When Morsi was finally forced from office, Islamist broadcasts blamed both Egypt's military and its Christians, whose blood they vowed to spill in revenge for the former's coup.

    We the freedom loving people of the world must help and support the people of Egypt.
    If we use this Brave stand against Muslim tyranny to build momentum the world over.
    we may be able to save the world yet from the Islamic desire to Murder people and destroy freedom the world over.
    We have to impeach Obama and get a true American back in the white house.
    Then put the full support of the US Government and military behind those who are courageously standing against Islamic tyranny in the Middle east.
    Egypt yes and Especially our friends in Israel

      What you are offering as the solution to the problems of the world is not the solution. It is the same rhetoric my Muslim friends use when speaking of dominating "Christians" who try to control the world through wars and fighting. Your attitude does not reflect the way of Christ. Please don't attempt to fight fire with fire. Christ's kingdom is not of this world, if it were his servants would fight. Your attitude only "justifies" more fighting and killing. "Don't be overcome with evil but overcome evil with good."

    You can expect animals to behave as such.

      "Animals???!!!" They are humans created in the image of God who need to be shown the way of Christ.

      • Predestined

        Jesus told us not to cast pearls before swine. It is their character, their nature in the flesh that Jesus spoke of. These men who think cutting off peoples heads with butter knifes is praiseworthy before God. That is not the image we were created in. When Jesus spoke to the Jewish leaders He said their father was the devil. Whose father do you think these men belong too?? The devil is referred to as the Beast. An animal. A wicked and vile animal characterized by such action as torturing to death innocent victims. If they repent, they become Sons of Light. If not they are animals in the image of their father, who Jesus said was a murderer from the beginning. Read your Bible.

        Read your Bible and GROW UP.
