"Some irrational youths threw flammable missiles at the houses of Christians in the village and some women ran away in their nightgowns."

Said Tarek Nasser, the local governor in Minya, Egypt, putting his spin on what the UK Independent reports as:
A 70-year-old Christian woman has been stripped naked, beaten and paraded through the streets by a mob of around 300 Muslim men in a village in southern Egypt.

The mob also burned down seven homes belonging to Christian families, according to an unusually outspoken statement issued by the local Orthodox Coptic church, after rumours circulated in the village that a Christian man was having a relationship with a Muslim woman... The woman who was stripped naked was reported to be the mother of the man involved in the rumoured affair.
Police did not respond until after the mob had dispersed on its own, 2 hours after the terror began.

ADDED: Remember 2011? We in Wisconsin were subjected to things like "Wisconsin and Egypt: A tale of two uprisings/Reflections from a Madison labor activist in Cairo": "So while political imagination is blooming in Cairo, it is somewhat disappointing in Wisconsin."

And here was that man with the sign "Egypt, Libya/Madison, Wisconsin/Civil Unrest Is Best" who — when Meade asked "Are you calling for civil unrest — here?" — said "Uh, sure, why?" and then, a few questions later, "Get your head fucked."

Youthful indiscretion

Obama and the Christian-hating corruptocrats sing in unison:

"She had it coming. After all, it's our fault we anger the poor Islamic men. Islam is beautiful."

President Obama will certainly speak on this to provide moral clarity.

Religion of Peace™ at work again. Seventy year old woman attacked. What is wrong with those people?

From the headline I assumed it was Dearborn, MI.

Religion of Peace™ at work again. Duh.

We need more people with these beliefs in the US to help us fight our "rape culture." You know, people who believe that democracy is against their religion.

Rule #1: Never leave to the government, what you can do for yourself.
Rule #2: Shoot to Kill
Rule #3: Revenge is Sweet

And this is what living among moderate Muslims that control the Government will turn into for Christians like me. It is coming to EU countries as fast as it can, and Mullah Obama has ordered Americans to pay to bring it over here, but no Syrian Christians allowed in the invasion.

Surprise, surprise. It seems all Muslims must establish their total superiority over Christians that are seen as filthy non people. The Koran says so, and Muslims chant it 5 times a day over loudspeakers installed on high towers all over town. We are told to pretend they are Prayer Towers, but they are actually Dominant Muslim cursing Christians towers.

Sounds like the same way the media describes the protestors at Trump rallies.

This is why people are sympathetic to a wall on the southern border, and a halt to immigration.

This is normal. Really, an ancient and routine sort of harassment between Muslims and Christians in the same village communities. Copts have been getting this harassment for over a thousand years.
Listen for the third world news, especially country-specific, and you will find it is typical. There is almost a daily story of this sort out of Pakistan.
The local news out of Mindanao is full of Muslim- Christian violence that isn't noticed elsewhere, not even in the Manila news.

The Muslims share with progressive liberals the principles of inherited (e.g. abortion rationalization) and associative (e.g. racism) sin.

n.n said...

The wall on the Southern border only needs to be a conversation opener. Mexico, as well as second and third-world nations, and progressive liberals need to acknowledge and address the mass exodus (e.g. illegal aliens, refugee crises) from those nations, and the compensatory motive for the consequences of population control schemes and dysfunctional revolutions in first-world nations (e.g. selective child, welfare industries, female chauvinism, pro-choice religion/morality).

In Egypt, the Coptics were Ethnic Egyptians who converted to Christianity 500 years before the dumb as rocks Arab worshipers of a rock Moon God kept in a house in Medina, conquered them, murdered the Egyptians who refused to become Muslims, or enslaved many faithful Christians called Coptics to serve them. They were smart enough to be so valuable that they resisted extermination for 1500 years.

They are also the ones that Obama and Clinton tried to get slaughtered by a one vote one time revolution that inserted the Muslim Brotherhood which was ready to use Egypt to exterminate the Coptics and the Israelis. The Egyptians woke up and fought back, and to this day are being secretly treated as enemies by Mullah Obama.

Trump can fix this easy. It is the Obama delusion that leads to defeat.

n.n said...

The lingering consequences of the so-called "Arab Spring" did not end with harassment, murder, rape, and terrorist vote in Egypt. The Egyptians need to be wary of the chaos created in Iraq after America removed their criminal dictator and Obama subsequently removed the honest brokers.

Fernandinande said...

The "Civil Unrest Is Best" guy wants a mob to burn down his house and parade his naked grandma through the streets - cool! What's his address?

buwaya puti said...

This can't be fixed and it has nothing to do with US policy in any way. It's not a consequence of any politics of the last two decades, or of the last two centuries. This is the normal condition of things, that they can spontaneously break into such incidents, and this one is comparatively minor.

Those who want anarchy should get it good and hard.

traditionalguy said...

OK, We send Cheese to France to feed the Muslim Invasion Forces over there and President Trump will just keep the insane jerks from invading our country faster than they can be converted to Christian Civilization.

Why does the news report leave out the rape?

The press reduces credibility with each "unforced lie".

Lileks is on a roll today"
"I am an American, and believe in a civic identity that transcends ethnicity. But I have sympathy for monocultures in small places. To say that Sweden is Sweden whether its culture is Christian or Islamic is idiocy, and to say there is some essential Swedishness that would survive the transition from one to the other is to disrespect the meaning of all the relevant ideals. But if you hold all forms of cultural theism in silent contempt, wanting a technocratic administrative state devoted to happy proles and wise elites doling out credits for participation in the solar energy rollout, the actual facts of the people's cultures doesn't matter. Give them their rituals and silly old beliefs. They'll lose them eventually. And if they don't? They'll find themselves in a world in which they matter very little, and they'll adapt."

HoodlumDoodlum said...

Diversity is their strength, though.
Religion of Peace, though.
Followers of the prophet respect "people of the book" and treat all with kindness and tolerance, though.
COEXIST, like the bumper sticker said, though.
The Arab Spring will bring democracy and Western values to that part of the world just like President Obama and Sec. State Hillary Clinton promised, though.

Probably just a "scuffle." Probably just news media sensationalizing the strange foreign "other" like always. Probably it was a "mostly peaceful" protest anyway.

Move along. Oh, and don't forget to open your borders! These fine people need to live in your country, on your block, and if you object to that you're a racist hater like Donald Trump!

And stopping Muslim immigration is a bad?? Thing??

Didn't Jon Stewart cause a camel to be abused in Madison?

Sebastian said...

It is not "irrational" for Muslims to kill Christians.

Ann Althouse said...

"Didn't Jon Stewart cause a camel to be abused in Madison?"

Yes. There's an old post about it on this blog. Easy to find thru the search box.

Fabi said...

The good old flammable missiles prank! Those youths really crack me up. You're only young once, right?

mikee said...

Sebastian, as a lapsed Catholic who, nevertheless, no doubt, would do for an extremist in need of a Christian to persecute unto death, I don't really care about the rationality/irrationality of my attempted murderer. I only care about how best to stop their intended action.
