Our dear Amin Riaz is really trying hard to justify the sacking and looting of the St. Simeon monastery

I wrote

"Hint: it ain't your bogus claim that they were meeting places for them bad Christians and you know why? because the St. Simeon monastery is in the middle of no where"

Even better. well on those brains no one is going to put you in charge of any military are they? Mind you - you'll fit in with USA military fine.

Oh comparing apples and oranges again!

... even to this day this monastery is located in the middle of no where and the Coptic monks were not harming anyone. It is their country and they had every right to be there

The so called salah al-Deen al-Ayoubi? he had no right being in Egypt or looting and sacking its monasteries but if those monks were out to attack the Muslim invaders they had every right after all it is you that just told us about the just war thing right? so the monks had every right to do some little jihad right?

For the readers: And this is beyond our dear Amin Riaz who ran away:

I suspect that Noth the German historian would regard the story provided by Muslim historians to justify the atrocity of the looting and sacking of this great monastery as the motif of what i would call "Monks and priests hording gold and silver in monasteries and churches" we even hear it to this day by salafists in Egypt as Copts are hording and this time not gold and silver but guns and arms in-order to attach Muslims! Which is stupid

And what really must have happened here is that the so called Salah al-Deen al-Ayoubi the wannabe Arab sent his goon squad and criminals to "Hunt" for slaves in Nubia and then the goon squad came across this monastery and the "the monks and priests hording gold and sivler" motif was the real reason for this atrocity against human heritage
