Siden Egypten med en fredelig revolution fik afsat Mubarak-regimet, er den etniske udrensning af landets kristne mindretal intensiveret. I sidste uge blev en koptisk kirke afbrændt i Aswan-provinsen, og søndag aften demonstrerede flere tusinde koptere derfor imod forfølgelsen i det centrale Cairo.
Herunder en video angiveligt optaget foran den pågældende kirke fredag den 30. september. Her kan man kan se en ledende islamisk autoritet med en økse, alt imens pøblen skiftevis råber ‘takbir‘, ‘Allahu Akbar‘, eller i flok ‘La ilaha illallah‘, som islamister også har for vane at gøre ved festlige lejligheder herhjemme.

Fra Time.com (AP) – Clashes Between Egyptian Christians, Police.
“At least 24 people were killed when Christians, angered by a recent church attack, clashed Sunday night with Muslims and security forces outside the state television building in central Cairo. …
The MENA news agency did not say whether those arrested were Christians or Muslims, but security officials said most of the 24 killed were Christians and that they may have included one or two Muslims. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media. …
The clashes spread from outside the TV building to nearby Tahrir Square, drawing thousands of people to the vast plaza that served as the epicenter of the protests that ousted Mubarak… State TV, which has increasingly become loyal to the military, appealed on “honorable” Egyptians to protect the army against attacks as news spread of clashes between the Christian protesters and the troops outside the TV building. Soon afterward, bands of young men armed with sticks, rocks, swords and firebombs began to roam central Cairo, attacking Christians. Troops and riot police did not intervene to stop the attacks on Christians.”

Opdate. Vlad Tepes har lagt et par videoer online af koptiske ofre. Ikke for sarte sjæle.
