(The Blaze/AP) — When the angry mob was rampaging through town,
storming her home and those of other Christians, the 70-year-old woman
hid in her cow pen, pushing a rock against the door. There she cowered
for hours, at one point passing out from tear gas being fired by police
that seeped in.


When Sameeha Wehba emerged just before dawn, she found she was the
only Christian left in this small Egyptian village just south of Cairo,
the location of some of the country’s earliest pyramids.


Dahshour’s entire Christian community – as many as 100 families some
estimate – fled to nearby towns in the violence earlier this week. The
flock’s priest, cloaked in a white sheet to hide him, was taken out in a
police van. At least 16 homes and properties of Christians were
pillaged and some torched and a church damaged.


The violence was ultimately rooted in a dispute over a badly ironed shirt that escalated into a fight in which a Muslim was burned to death, sparking the rampage by angry Muslims.


“It was a devil’s moment,” Wehba said Thursday at the home of her
Muslim neighbors, who have taken her in. “Whoever caused this was the
devil’s son.”


The unprecedented exodus underscores how sectarian divisions are
bubbling over in the wake of the revolution, in a country where 10
percent of the population is Christian.

    The dollar does not do much in the USA however others are enjoying it around the world including everyone in Congress, House of Rep, Senate and Potus. Unfortunately the rest of us are still hanging on while they squander what we are supposed to pay in the way of taxations etc. In other words they are wasting are hard earned tax dollars. Are you as tired of that as I am?

    Their futures are guaranteed for life what about the rest of us paying for all those luxurious vacations etc and healthcare etc. They have made us look like fools and pawns. Term limits without al the frills for them would deem appropriate. This is government gone wild.
