    This very scary! At this rate, there will be no more Christian Churches in Egypt. But? Is this Morsi the Jihadist creep that wants people slaves except for the elite at the top, initiating the burning or who is responsible? I have to believe it is the Jihadists moving into cause trouble as they push their grand Mudrasa Brotherhood murderous rotten take over of the world....I do pray the military in Egypt is for the freedom fighters, but at this point, who knows? In the meantime, stupid American Government is okaying gigantic Mosque construction all over America...What the hell is in them and what the hell is this a silent invasion of these scary ones? I do not believe for one minute they want Americans as friends but have come to annihilate us!

    Some people want special rights to be able to kill Christians, the truly interesting part is that others want to give them those rights.

    but thats OK in the eyes of the world. The real outrage in the world community would be if christians burned mosques.

    Shame that Muslim headquarters were burned to the ground then put out with pork byproducts.

    We keep leading from further and further behind... Soon no one will be able to accuse us of being a super power. We can then fulfill Obama's dream and become another European style Social Democracy happliy re-distributing our way to mediocrity

    The only good thing about these church's burning is the fact that people will be even more determined to be be more committed in their choice of religion and will rebuild with conviction.
    I guess we can thank Obama for all this, wasn't it he and Hillary that were sending arms to the brotherhood in Egypt along with billions of dollars? Isn't that what Benghazi was all about?
    Isn't it ironic how after each one of these scandals the person in charge has resigned? This just proves two points, one is their guilt and the second is how diplomates can get away with murder by simply resigning their post only to be assigned another one.
  • Bill 2013/08/16 11:23:55
    What else do you expect from a cult that uses murder and destruction as their alter of praise?
  • Yo'Adri... Bill 2013/08/16 14:25:58
    Isn't it amazing that these people....are supposed to be the same ones that built the Pryamids, and left all those amazing artifacts leading us to believe that they were ahead of their time..........What's in the water over there.....?????

    Real good question. Don't believe I want to drink the water.

    Perfect example of the difference in a Christian vs Muslim led country!
  • LourdesO 2013/08/16 10:25:21
    It is terrible that at this time of our history these things are happening. Humanity is supposed to be in a very different dinamic instead of making war and fighting about religion, but the problem seems to be more alive everyday. Religions are not what they used to be many centuries ago and do not represent power anymore to the point to be attacked. Everything is about old hates that are totally lack of any sense. Christians bring millions of dollars to all the Middle East for tourism and they would have many more tourists if those countries were not so dangerous. Why people continues making war when we can enjoy the blessings of peace...it is very sad to see how the human beings are destroying to each other and fighting and killing about things that do no make any sense...
  • hatter 2013/08/16 08:11:23
    https://www.facebook.com/Copt... it says here at least 40 churches have been burned in the about twenty four hours. disgraceful and should be punished severely with the same respect they give the rest of the world. put all of them in refugee camps.

    Practice what you preach ...... Stop and remember what we did, and are still doing to Muslims in this country. So if you are saying that it is OK for us to do it to them, but they bet not do it to us, then you are wrong. Sorry to say....What goes around......well you know. And I bet you are one of them good Christians aren't you.
  • Captame... 2tellth... 2013/08/16 10:48:55
    What Mosque has been burned in this country? What are you talking about? Islam is a religion of war and hate, Christianity espouses love! Yes, I am "one of them good Christians," thank you!

    What ever they started it. And obviously they have no respect for others. By there own law it demands a reaction. Eye for an eye. They are just heartless.
  • JamesChevyII 2013/08/16 08:04:45
    Whom takes the time to gather all this information??? Is this just another attempt/point to keep people in an uproar??? There are enough problems in the world without bringing up more/new ones... Get a life...

    They love distracting from the issues of today, especially where it involves the chosen one…by the way where is the chosen one, oh yeah that’s right..when a crisis hits he goes golfing. What an A hole, over 600 innocent people killed and he goes golfing?
    Now I see how the liberal party avoids wars, they sit back and watch millions get killed by tyrants.

    carpet bomb the muslim camps.
  • hatter 2013/08/16 07:57:14
    this is why i never supported the muslims since day one. this what they do on a regular basis. they have no respect for anybody except there own all others must die or serve them. Milosevic didn't just wake up and start ordering killings of Muslims. they asked for it, they got it. and they won the sympathy battle. and they get more courage. people should be up in arms marching to stop the scourge of the earth.

    Christians and their churches have been attacked all over the Middle East since the Arab Spring especially. Egypt, Syria, and Nigeria are some of the worst.

    Why is the media silent on this? Why is President Obama silent on this?

    Someone looks at a Muslim in the wrong way and they are accused of a hate crime; but Christians are being attacked, raped, murdered, have their property stolen or destroyed in the Middle East and what does our media or president have to say - nothing or they blame the Christians.
  • kevjon Wanda52... 2013/08/16 12:21:00
    Obama is the one that armed them, he loves all this and the media will protect Obama till the day their building gets burned down by our Muslims.
  • Yo'Adri... kevjon 2013/08/16 14:33:11
    "Divide and Conquer" Obama's mantra! Did it with the Black white racial issue, the Muslims, the Israeli's......etc.
