Siniora calls for punishing the killers of the Copts

Former Lebanese Prime Minister and current Future bloc leader MP Fouad Siniora visited the headquarters of the Christian Coptic Church in Sin al-Fil on Tuesday and offered his condolences over the violent clashes that killed a number of Egyptian Copts Sunday in Cairo.

Siniora called for uncovering the perpetrators of the violence punishing them, according to a statement issued his office.

On Sunday, 25 people were killed and more than 300 injured in clashes after a demonstration by Coptic Christians was attacked by the army and thugs, sparking furious condemnation of the leadership’s handling of the transition from Hosni Mubarak’s rule.

      Good thinking 5th … I don’t hear Saniora or others calling for STE. Christian blood does not count in the M.E.

        you took his comment out of context…you are so oblivious it is actually cute. STE for what? was it a multi national conspiracy/attack against the Copts in Egypt? or an Egyptian home grown problem? Do I have to remind your silly little head that the STL was formed because ‘outside’ assistance was used in the attacks on our soil and on our martyrs? you think Aoun and HA would last even a minute in Lebanon without all the illegal outside influence and support from known bullies and terrorist regimes? One day you’ll realize what a fool you been, but by then just like all those who are oblivious it will be far too late.

    Someone should really think of a practical plan to bring home our region’s Christian and Mandean diaspora.
