Egypt: 8 killed in clashes between Muslims and Christians

Share:

Clashes between Muslims and Christians in the Egyptian capital Cairo left eight dead and more than 100 others injured and a church was set on fire, officials said.

The two groups clashed in the northwestern district of Imbaba on Saturday after Muslims attacked the Coptic Saint Mena church to free a Christian woman they alleged was being held against her will because she wanted to convert to Islam.

A parish priest, Father Hermina, told AFP the dead were Copts who died when “thugs and (Muslim fundamentalist) Salafis fired at them” in the late afternoon attack.

Ali Abdel Rahman, the governor of Giza, told state television that “the number of wounded has exceeded 100 and there are eight dead.”

The Gospel had been laid on a body wrapped in a sheet that was lying inside the church. The church floor was bloodstained as wounded Christians were brought into the church for treatment. AFP

    isnt that the issue of police and not the moselm mobs to free someone against the will, can the government enforce the law and leave the religion out, Can the moslem religous leader tell the worshipper that those matters are state matter and we are not living in the Khalifa time. Can the moselm religious leader explain the Koran to the worshipper since it seems the moslem appears so confused about their religion, from some we hear kill for Jihad, the other say it is a peace relgion, is peaceful religion call to bun churches. I think we will one day be sorry that Moubarak is down espcially when over 50 % of Egyptian as the polls show want the Koran to rule Egypt , we are set to another Iran or worst , as we can’t compare the level of Education in Iran to Egypt ,70 % of Iranian women are University educated literacy rate in Iran is 82 % compare to 66 % in Egypt ..Many
    Egyptians
    won’t accept this fact but the truth is majority of the population is over-religious and don’t see the importance in education.

    Women are among the majority of illiterates because of
    the extremist
    ideology that women are “inferior” and should stay at home.

    For boys they are send to madrassas where they learn nothing but get brainwashed by some religious leader like Zawahiri style

    Unfortunately this has been the story for Egypt in recent times there
    have been some improvements though but definitely have a long way to go.

    Also its not necessarily true that
    lack of education
    is solely based on
    economic problems
    as some has mentioned there are countries whose economic conditions are worse than
    Egypt
    but have high literacy rates, religion in the Moslem world is becoming a big issue and time for Aaturkand Borkaiba is needed ,first to make the state secular and secondly to stop this non sense multiple wives that is nothing other than demeaning and degrading to the women !!!!

    Christians do not belong in the Middle East as much as Moslems do not belong in the West… I know I am gonna get flamed for that but watch and see the progression. IT WILL NEVER END! As a matter of fact that is JUST the tip of the iceberg. Moderates on both sides are too sissy to make a difference when fundamentalism is EAGER for the struggle.
    So how does it resolve itself? Christians, Druze and Alaouites and other minorities will either immigrate or be killed and then two powers will stand against each others, Sunnis against Shias, and this is when the fun begins until one will be left standing.

      I love how you admire Mao for saying religion is poison. This man didn’t have a religion, Mao killed more people in the Cultural Revolution than the Holocaust and Stalin Killings combined. Without religion there is no moral, there is nothing to live for. All the leaders without religion were the most ruthless Mao and Pol Pot. Dont talk some bullshit nonsense that comes from your ears, sure religion caused many deaths even till now. But if this world had no religion we would be slaughtering eachother left and right, after all what would be the consequence?

      Speaking of Maos killings

      Great Leap Forward estimated: 20 and 43 million deaths

      Dont say religion is poison, it looks like NO religion was the poison for Mao.

        Religion IS poison… I do not have to prove anything… It is in the news everyday from Chechnya to Waco Texas passing by the Middle East. Throughout history, if it weren’t the Jews attacking some tribes it is Islam conquering, by the sword Christian Byzantium, or the Christian Crusaders slaughtering Moslems until the invention of the Jewish State and the Iranian Revolution and the Lebanese Civil War etc. etc. etc.
        It will never end… Refer to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:DamasChristianQuarter1860.jpg
        That was Arab Moslems killing Arab Christians…

        I agree. Christians belong in the Middle East just like Muslims and any other faith. It is very un-Islamic to say otherwise. The Prophet of the Muslim faith preached respect of all beliefs (assuming there was peace). Christians have helped shape the Middle East of today, and have a rich history in the region.

      people do kill for many other motives than religion. they kill for race, for food, for greed, jealousy, money and power etc…nevertheless, most religions used in a positive context are still an additional safeguard for modern societies that is helping to define what is good and what is bad in human beings behaviour.

      when people do bad deeds to each other they know deep down that besides breaking the secular laws of the countries they live in, they are first of all breaking some higher moral codes embodied in the major religions around the world that call for peace love and understanding of fellow human beings.

      The pictures of Mohammed infact appeared in the Denmark newspaper couple years back. I cant understand you see a lot of countries making fun of Jesus Christ daily, in shows, cartoons, talkshows, etc. But are we Christians burning stuff up? Attacking Jews or Muslims? Burning Mosques or Synagogues? Retaliating Violently? Burning Stars of Davids or Cresent and Moons? Burning the flag of countries? Calling upon death for a whole nation? Nope. Everytime a Jew or Muslim has something portrayed against their religion it makes the news. When its something against Christianity you never hear anything on the news.

When Hitler killed people, he didn’t say “We are killing them in the name of Jesus Christ”. Theres a big difference. The only proper thing you got here was the Crusaders and that was in the 1400s. Tell me a country in the ME that the Christians have rights other than Lebanon. Egypt has 10 million Coptics theres not one single person as a Coptic representative in the government, there used to be 1.4 Million Christians in Iraq now theres less than 400,000. Christians are treated like shit and neglected in most of the ME countries, do you ever hear the news reporting that? I sound like Fox News? What you think im some republican white-trash pro-Israeli man? You know well Christians are treated like shit in the ME have balls and admit it.

    these tensions have been brewing for yrs before Mubarak’s exit.

    i really do think that it is in someon’es interest to have this chaos in egypt. [Iran or Israel? or both?]

    i just hope the egyptians have learnt from the lebanese experience.

    i have to remind anyone that really we are getting this info from the media…so no one really knows what actually happened and how things are being driven to this.

    things are almost always have another side to the obvious.

  16. Beiruti,

    I agree with you that christians have it bad in some areas,just like us Shia have bad in most areas

    the reason i came at you so hard is cause you made it sound like christianity doesnt have evil people

    in it,but to answer your point,how many muslims have wahhabis,salafies etc killed…so you may be

    right bout hitler and etc killing other christians,u can say the same about bin laden blowing up shia

    left and right from Iraq to Pakistan…so yes while they are sick and twisted in killing christans they are

    the same in killing muslims,.which only makes them cold blooded killers with no cause to kill except to

    kill brother…Muslims are a 3rd of the worlds population u cant use isolated incidents to generalize islam,

    many christians live good in the middle east, in Jordan,Syria,Lebanon,Palestine,and even Egypt,these animals

    who killed the coptics may god strike them and there families,im sooo sick of these a-holes doing this,

    i swear on my mothers life Bieruti if i had the chance to save just one person from this attack or any

    attack of this nature and i would die while doing it…on my family i would do it….this is what true islam is

    im soo sorry that you guys have to see this,and even more sorry that its only getting worst,and even

    more sorry that anything of a good muslim is considered a minority in todays world according to public

    opinion…what can we do bro…we have some bastards that chose a life of ignorance and murder,but dont ever

    think anyone who is a true muslim supports one percent of these bastards…and i willl clearly say this,anyone

    who has one percent of sympathy towards these people will join them in hell in my opinion….my bad bro

    for attacking you..or at least calling u fox news…..such a touchy subject for me….Good Day bro,…

      Yes i agree with you bro that we cant generalize religion based on a few animals. There is extremists in every religion. Osama Bin Ladens gotta be ashamed of himself for not only killing Christians, but his own blooded people, many times in Afghanistan and Iraq Al Qaeda has retaliated by killing Sunnis there own religion. If Mussolini, Hitler and Stalin prayed to Jesus every night (Which the probably didn’t because they thought they were God and there egos were very high) and then the next day they massacre people its too contradicting and hypocritical. I find that nowadays people dont care much about their religion, dont practice, dont go to mosque/church/synagogue, but when it comes to discussions and killings religion is used as an excuse instead of a practice. No ones worse than the Israelis they kill Palestinians every day, building on the West Bank and if you say something against them they accuse you of being Anti Semitic and a Jew Hater, despite the fact your hating on the State not the Religion. Theres a prime example of people using religion as a defense or excuse and its getting really old now.

I find that nowadays people dont care much about their religion, dont practice, dont go to mosque/church/synagogue, but when it comes to discussions and killings religion is used as an excuse instead of a practice. No ones worse than the Israelis they kill Palestinians every day, building on the West Bank and if you say something against them they accuse you of being Anti Semitic and a Jew Hater, despite the fact your hating on the State not the Religion. Theres a prime example of people using religion as a defense or excuse and its getting really old now.

      You’re my kind of Muslim that I like to have as a neighbor. As you said before all religions preach peace and harmony. Some people interpret it different than others, it’s up to good people to stop the bad guys from hijacking their religion. I don’t think there were more than 1% of the Lebanese population that were involved in religious killings.The silent 99% majority were running for their lives had nothing to do with killings, but they were the ones that paid the heavy price.

      With Aoun and HA alliance I hope Lebanon will never see religious killings.

  17. Beiruti,

    I agree with you that christians have it bad in some areas,just like us Shia have bad in most areas

    the reason i came at you so hard is cause you made it sound like christianity doesnt have evil people

    in it,but to answer your point,how many muslims have wahhabis,salafies etc killed…so you may be

    right bout hitler and etc killing other christians,u can say the same about bin laden blowing up shia

    left and right from Iraq to Pakistan…so yes while they are sick and twisted in killing christans they are

    the same in killing muslims,.which only makes them cold blooded killers with no cause to kill except to

    kill brother…Muslims are a 3rd of the worlds population u cant use isolated incidents to generalize islam,

    many christians live good in the middle east, in Jordan,Syria,Lebanon,Palestine,and even Egypt,these animals

    who killed the coptics may god strike them and there families,im sooo sick of these a-holes doing this,

    i swear on my mothers life Bieruti if i had the chance to save just one person from this attack or any

    attack of this nature and i would die while doing it…on my family i would do it….this is what true islam is

    im soo sorry that you guys have to see this,and even more sorry that its only getting worst,and even

    more sorry that anything of a good muslim is considered a minority in todays world according to public

    opinion…what can we do bro…we have some bastards that chose a life of ignorance and murder,but dont ever

    think anyone who is a true muslim supports one percent of these bastards…and i willl clearly say this,anyone

    who has one percent of sympathy towards these people will join them in hell in my opinion….my bad bro

    for attacking you..or at least calling u fox news…..such a touchy subject for me….Good Day bro,…

      Yes i agree with you bro that we cant generalize religion based on a few animals. There is extremists in every religion. Osama Bin Ladens gotta be ashamed of himself for not only killing Christians, but his own blooded people, many times in Afghanistan and Iraq Al Qaeda has retaliated by killing Sunnis there own religion. If Mussolini, Hitler and Stalin prayed to Jesus every night (Which the probably didn’t because they thought they were God and there egos were very high) and then the next day they massacre people its too contradicting and hypocritical.
