During a recent conference, Dr. Sherif Doss, an Egyptian activist, confirmed the extent of the widespread attacks on Egypt’s Christians at the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood and their supporters—including “at least 80 churches that were torched and/or destroyed”—and highlighted the often overlooked but ongoing human suffering of the Copts: “But worst of all, about 140 families were evicted from their own homes; and worse still is that, not only were they thrown out of their houses, but their shops and properties were robbed and destroyed… General Sisi has promised to rebuild the churches and this takes time to be done. But we can’t wait all that time for those people destitute and in the streets, with no place to live and nowhere to work…. These people are in a very bad condition. If you go and see these villages, you will be amazed—it is as if a nuclear bomb exploded there. People burned and plundered their homes without mercy…” [For complete translation of Doss' speech, click here]

 

Raymond Ibrahim, a Middle East and Islam specialist, is author of Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians (2013) and The Al Qaeda Reader (2007). His writings have appeared in a variety of media, including the Los Angeles Times, Washington Times, Jane’s Islamic Affairs Analyst, Middle East Quarterly, World Almanac of Islamism, and Chronicle of Higher Education; he has appeared on MSNBC, Fox News, C-SPAN, PBS, Reuters, Al-Jazeera, NPR, Blaze TV, and CBN. Ibrahim regularly speaks publicly, briefs governmental agencies, provides expert testimony for Islam-related lawsuits, and testifies before Congress. He is a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center, an Associate Fellow at the Middle East Forum, and a Media Fellow at the Hoover Institution, 2013. Ibrahim’s dual-background -- born and raised in the U.S. by Coptic Egyptian parents born and raised in the Middle East -- has provided him with unique advantages, from equal fluency in English and Arabic, to an equal understanding of the Western and Middle Eastern mindsets, positioning him to explain the latter to the former.

I wonder if God is trying to get the Middle Eastern Christians out because of terrible destruction coming on that area. Like Lot being told to leave Sodom.

I pray for those folks over there every day. I wonder what I will do when/if attacked by rabid moon god worshipers filled with the love for Sin, and Muhammad.

Well, I wonder what I would do after I run out of ammo.

Are you aware that at least one Near Eastern culture named its moon god Sin (the syllable, not freighted with its English meaning)? Because if not, that makes for quite the touch of synchronicity...

I'm aware of what a correct History book reads on what Muhammad's Uncle is named after, and I am aware of my god of the Kabba is but one of 360 gods that Muhammad made the only one to worship or else.

Is the above what you understand, or are you referring to the rebirth of the Sun god?
