Dr. Pies

It is not just Maaloula or ܡܥܠܘܠܐ (it means entrance also high in Syriac) that fell to al-Qa3ida aka Muslim terrorists but also the city of Delga in Minyya Egypt (where the 3-4th century CE Chruch of the Virgin that was looted and then torched and then converted to a mosque) is now under the control of members of el-Gami3a el-Islamiyya and its leader the terrorist Assem Abd el-Maged and now the 20,000 Copts that live in Delga have to pay a Jizya tax yes they have to pay a jizya tax! And they are to pay between 200-500 Egyptian pounds per day or about $30-71 per day in a country where 40% of the population earn $2 per day!

Where is Mr Obama?
