The Black Flag of Jihad Flies Over St. George’s

Churches are burning in Egypt as fast as Muslim Brotherhood supporters can pour the gasoline and light the fires. Of those spared from the flames, some are being used as mosques, hosting Islamic prayers this past Friday. And al-raya — the black flag of Jihad — has been raised over St. George’s church in Sohag.

Here’s the report from AINA:

Coptic Pope Blasts Muslim Brotherhood, US, EU

by Mary Abdelmassih

(AINA) — Since ex-president Morsy’s ouster on July 3, attacks on Egyptian Christians by members of the Muslim Brotherhood have taken place in most governorates across Egypt. These attacks have escalated since security forces ended the pro-Morsy protests in central Cairo on August 14th. During their 6-weeks of protests, Muslim Brotherhood leaders explicitly threatened to harm the Copts should they be forced to end their protests, which they vowed to prolong until Morsy is restored to power.

“Over the past weeks we have witnessed an increasing trend of anti-Christian rhetoric calling for ‘the attack upon and eradication of Christians and churches’ in Egypt,” said Coptic Bishop Anba in the United Kingdom. “The result of such incitement, at least in part, has been the unprecedented attack on fifty two churches and numerous Christian homes and businesses across eight governorates in Egypt, within the space of twenty four hours.”

Yesterday Dr. Naguib Gabriel, President of Egyptian Union of Human Rights Organization, said “82 churches, many of which were from the 5th century, were attacked by pro-Morsy supporters in just two days.”

Coptic Pope Tawadros II issued a statement yesterday expressing his views on the violence which engulfed Egypt, accusing the Muslim Brotherhood of fomenting sectarian clashes.

The Pope said the Church is on “the side of Egyptian law, the armed forces and all the Egyptian civil institutions when it comes to confronting violent armed organizations and terrorizing forces, either within the country or from abroad.” The Pope pointed out that one should look beyond the squares where the Muslim Brotherhood have been holding their protests, in order to gain a general overview of what has been happening for weeks in Egypt. “The attacks on government buildings and peaceful churches terrorize everyone, whether they be Copts or Muslims. These actions go against any religion, any moral code and any sense of humanity.”

The Coptic Church also criticized the way in which the crisis is reported outside of Egypt. It expressly speaks of “false broadcast by Western media,” and urges for an “objective” revision to be made of the descriptions given to the actions of those “blood-thirsty radical organizations.” The Coptic Orthodox Church says that “instead of legitimizing them with global support and political coverage while they are trying to wreak havoc and destruction upon our beloved land, report all events truthfully and accurately.”

Pope Tawadros reaffirmed his support for “national unity” and rejected any form of “international interference in our internal affairs.”

The Pope is at the top of the Islamists’ assassination list.

The views of the Coptic church are also held by Copts in general, who are angry with the US and EU powers, “who almost daily issue statements threatening to take further actions against our interim government and army, portraying the Muslim Brotherhood as victims while not even mentioning the destruction of over 80 churches, as well monasteries, orphanages, businesses and Coptic schools by the Muslim Brotherhood,” says Coptic activist Wagih Yacoub who believes that this western attitude emboldens them to carry out further violence. “To add insult to injury the Muslim Brotherhood this week hoisted the black Al-Qaida flag on top of St. George’s church in Sohag. Three churches were turned into mosques in Minya and Friday prayers were held inside them.”

    • According to Professor Coleman of Oxford Britain will have a white British minority by 2066. England and Wales are already only 80% white British so the date for England is probably much sooner than that. He predicts that Britain will be the world’s most ethnically diverse nation. Funny, I don’t remember any politician saying this would happen to us. Still can’t quite understand why Britain had to change; it was a lovely cohesive country where everybody got on sharing a shared ancestry, history, culture and traditions. Can you imagine any ethnic British voter of the last 60 years about to put the cross on the ballot paper suddenly receiving a tap on the shoulder and a the canvassers of all three main political parties saying you do realise that we want to make Britain the world’s most ethnically diverse country, you don’t mind do you. I nearly wrote nation but this will not be a nation just a parking lot for anybody who wants to roll up and take up residence here from anywhere in the world. Those whom the gods wish to destroy they first make mad. My fellow Brits, if you have tears to shed, prepare to shed them now. The party’s over just head for the hills and try and pretend it’s not happening.

    • Can you please tell me how many of the countries covered by Time magazine Asia are in any sense truly multicultural? China, no, Japan, no, India, no, Pakistan, no, Korea, no, Indonesia, no, Viet-nam, no, Thailand, no, or have I got something wrong. It is becoming more and more obvious that only white countries must be multicultural and have no choice about it. Funny that.

      • The problem is that whereas European nations put every effort into seeing the world as others see it, the Asian (and African) nations refuse to see the world as anything other than how they see it.

        Europe is left defenceless – viz multiculturalism.

  3. Relating this and GoV’s “The Roster of Christian Persecution in Egypt” to the flaky German bishop’s pronouncement about a church burned in Saxony: where is The Church ? Where are the pronouncements of outrage and solidarity from the multiculti Pope? From the progressive Canterbury fellow? From the eminences of the Lutheran faith, or Baptists or Methodists? These poseurs always display tender solicitude for the Mussulman, the LGBT deviate, the disgruntled female; why not a word in behalf of gravely persecuted Christians?

    • Multikulti stigmata, the heretical hysteria of self-destruction that is not the forgetting of the Christian God but the subversion of Christianity in favour of the secular Discordians and Muhammadans.

  4. That is why may of us are forming an independent Catholic Church fa away from these traitorous things- I will not grace these excuses for humanity as human. They are things!

  5. The church burning and attacks on Christians in Egypt has been reported on by some MSM outlets – but not as far as I know by the BBC.

    • BBC news did actually reporting the burning of churches but said nothing about Christians being attacked. You must remember that their head of religious broadcasting is/was a muslim. The Marxist BBC hates Christianity with a vengeance. Lord Reith must spin in his grave so many times these days. Britain died about 1990 if not 1980.

  6. What is happening now in Egypt is, in fact, the beginning of a new Holocaust with Copts cast in the role of German Jews. It looks like they will soon be partially exterminated, partially exiled. Their tragedy, rather like that of Jews in the 1930s, leaves the world largely indifferent. Or is it just indifferent? Knowing the anti-Christian feelings of modern Western elites one cannot help wondering if people like Mr Obama, Ms Clinton or their European counterparts are not secretly happy about that?

    At least, they have shown no concern over the fate of brutally persecuted Christian populations in the Middle East or anywhere else in the Islamic world. It seems that for them even most radical versions of Islamism are preferable to traditional Christianity.

    It should be added that Copts are the inheritors of the rich and ancient pre-Islamic civilisation of Egypt, the last link of this nation with its glorious historical past. Their extermination and destruction of their heritage would be a loss to the world as a whole.
