Devout Muslims Throw Gasoline Bombs at Christian Shops Just Before Trial of Coptic Christian Accused of Blasphemy Against Islam
The Muslims who did this are supporters of the Obama-backed Muslim Brotherhood, which Obama tried to strong-arm the Egyptians into returning to power. The wholesale persecution of non-Muslims in Muslim societies on his watch, while he glad-handed the oppressors and said nothing about the persecution, will go down in history as one of the many, many blots on his feckless post-American presidency.
Islamists Torch Christians Shops in South Egypt, Associated Press, June 2, 2014:
A security official in Egypt says a mob of angry Islamists has burned shops owned by Coptic Christians near the ancient city of Luxor hours before a trial for a Coptic Christian accused of blasphemy.
The official says the attack early Monday saw Islamists throw gasoline bombs at the shops in the village of el-Mahameed near Luxor. The official says authorities are investigating the attack.
The attack came hours before the start of a trial in Luxor for Kerolos Ghattas, a young Coptic Christian charged with contempt to Islam over a series of alleged Internet postings.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to journalists.
Christians make up about 10 percent of Egypts population.
