Dr. Pipes

I wanted to bring to your attention that Islamists in Egypt are claiming that Copts are collecting and storing arms in Coptic churches and the plan is to, and I'm not kidding you, have a new country in Nubia! and here is an article by an Islamist

http://www.almesryoon.com/permalink/79368.html

And this is what the author wrote

فلقد تداولت الأخبار وجود ميليشيات مسلحة داخل الكنائس كما تناقلت الأخبار نشأة تنظيم مسلح لفصل النوبة عن مصر.

or the news (he does not tell the readers about the source of these news) that there is an armed militia in (Coptic) Churches and the news (again he does not identify his source) that there is an armed organization to establish an independent Nubia from the rest of Egypt

This is just amazing and bizarre

But again the nightmare of Islamists is the creation of another South Sudan. Oh reality? this is the last thing in the minds of Islamists
