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.Police did not respond until after the mob had dispersed on its own, 2 hours after the terror began.
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.
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."
