Egypt: Muslim Mob Attacks Elderly Christian Woman, Marches Her Naked Through Streets, Shouting 'Allahu Akbar

How can Christians ever be expected to live in peace with animals like these?

An armed Muslim mob stripped an elderly Christian woman and paraded her naked on the streets in an attack last week in which seven Christian homes were also looted and torched in a province south of the Egyptian capital.

According to the local Orthodox Coptic church and security officials, the assault in the Minya province village of Karma on Friday began after rumors spread that the elderly woman’s son had an affair with a Muslim woman — a taboo in conservative Egypt.

Anba Makarios, Minya’s top Christian cleric, told a host on private TV network Dream TV that the old woman was literally dragged out of her house. When she was standing on the street, the Muslim mob insulted her, and then proceeded to strip off her clothes. That must have been an absolute nightmare for the old Christian lady, but it got even worse. Once she was naked they forced her to walk through the neighborhood while they chanted “Allahu akhbar,” or “God is great.”

Apparently, Allah is especially “great” at humiliating poor Christian women who can’t defend themselves.

A local farmer, one Attiyah Ayad, said that the mob even chanted genocidal messages like “we must drive the infidels out.”

Ah, peace on earth. Doesn’t it just sound marvelous?

He went on:

They emptied magazine after magazine, firing in the air to terrorize us.

Security officials say six men were arrested. They added that they’re looking for 12 more suspects. Somewhat surprisingly in this day and age, Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi has publicly condemned the attack, explaining that it’s a patriotic commitment to defend the honor of Egyptian women, regardless of their religion:

The rights and the protection of their dignity are a humanitarian and patriotic commitment before being a legal and constitutional one.

That sounds wonderfully tolerant, but the fact of the matter is that even el-Sisi’s government is doing little to nothing to protect Egyptian Christians. The cleric quoted above believes that the Christian victims will eventually be forced into accepting “humiliating” conditions for “reconciliation.” In other words, they’ll just have to roll with this denigrating treatment because, in Egypt, Christians are little more than dhimmis: they have a “right” to live, but have to “accept” the “superiority” of Muslims.

There are two kinds of people in most Islamic countries: the Muslim ubermenschen and untermenschen of minority religions.

Hitler would be proud.

It goes to show why Christian organizations such as Open Doors have to be supported by Christians living in the West, where we’re still safe (and prosperous). This organization is working in the world’s most oppressive countries, empowering Christians through a host of programs and, of course, charitable works. They’re doing vital work, and it’s up to us to enable them to continue doing so. If we don’t, we’ll soon speak about a Christocide that destroyed all Christian communities in the so-called Islamic world.
