Reader comment on item: Islamophobia?

Submitted by f.shawki (United States), Oct 27, 2005 at 22:07

We are receiving numerous reports that Fanatic Muslim groups are planning to surround the Alexandria churches again on Friday, Oct.28, and at the end of Ramadan on the following Tuesday, promising the death of Christians and the continued destruction of churches throughout Egypt," Dr. Monir Dawoud, president of the ICU/ACA, said.

Dawoud faults the security forces for encouraging violence by first "giving the green light to the mob," and then failing to control the resulting riots. "If the momentum of the riots is allowed to continue, the crowds will be impossible to contain," Dawoud said.

Over 5,000 Muslims demonstrated outside of the Alexandria Coptic Orthodox Church last Friday to protest the production of a drama staged at the church two years ago. The protestors say the play blasphemes Islam. According to recent statements by the Coptic Church, however, the play does not defame Islam.

Copts and other minorities in Egypt are continually subjected to physical and verbal harassment by extremist Muslim groups. Yet we do not destroy their houses of worship or call for bloodshed," said Amgad Zakhari, one of the youth leaders with the ICU/ACA.

The above is from one of the news paper in USA reporting violent acts against Copts of Egypt for no reason except religious intolerance.

These moslems there in Egypt or any other islamic country are the same moslems who are here in USA with the same religioun and same violant behavior when they are in power. No moderate islam exsits, it is a big lie.
The people from the middle east know it and the west do not want to believe it.
