egypt_mapCAIRO, EGYPT (Worthy News)– Defense Minister Gen. Abdel Fattah El-Sisi has ordered the repair of all churches that were damaged during the Muslim Brotherhood's violent protests after Egypt's military removed President Mohamed Morsi from office, according to a report by the Mid-East Christian News.

"The Egyptian defense minister ordered the engineering department of the armed forces to swiftly repair all the affected churches, in recognition of the historical and national role played by our Coptic brothers".

Bishop Mousa thanked El-Sisi via Twitter for "commissioning the brave Egyptian armed forces to rebuild the places of worship damaged during the recent events."

The Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights reported that across Egypt's 27 provinces at least 25 churches were burned as well as Christian schools, shops and homes after thousands of pro-Morsi protestors took to the streets following his removal from office in July.

Many members of the Muslim Brotherhood blamed Egypt's Christian minority for supporting the successful military coup against Morsi.

    UH, that last line should have read: "… Muslims blame Christians for INSTIGATING or Causing the armies response to Morsi's attempts to destroy the Egyptian constitution and make Islamic sharia law the DE-facto law of the land in a treasonous usurpation of power. " This was NOT a " coup" and the writer of this article is a stooge for the Obama cronies who wish to hide the fact that this was a lawful action of the Army against a government who was elected by intimidating the non Muslims and ballot box manipulation.much like the OBAMA administration is doing and did through the IRS harassment of it's enemies! GEE what a PERFECT parallel! The Americans army Should be doing the same thing here if they had any backbone! After all their role is to DEFEND the American PEOPLE and uphold their oaths to defend the law of the land here in the form of a valid interpretation of the U.S. Constitution. Treason is treason both there and here . Throw the bums out!
    That the Muslims burned churches .. .is that a VALID manner of addressing the so called wrongs of an army removing an false duplicitous treasonous elected official ( even if these mad mullahs do not think so) ? Or does it not show the very purpose and necessity for the Armies actions against a man who by his very actions designed to destroy the Egyptian republic and make it the hell hole that the rest of the Islamic world has become for all non Muslims and the rest of the free world. Obama's, Kerry's and McCains statement that this is a coup and a unlawful action by the Egyptian army is mind numbingly stupid and blind.
    I applaud even rejoice in the even fair handed actions of that Army in taking a proactive action to help those falsely and unjustly targeted by these hate mongering religious fanatics.!

    INSTIGATING or Causing ( not merely "supporting" which is disingenuous)

    Treason is treason both there and here . Throw the bums out! Obama does
    not want the " WE the PEOPLE" to get any ideas so they are spinning it
    to hide the fact that this is a lawful action of the army , lest they
    also face such an action by the "We the PEOPLE" here.

    That
    the Muslims burned churches … is that a VALID manner of addressing the
    so called wrongs of an army removing an false duplicitous treasonous
