The burning then the looting of كنيسة دير العذراء or the Church of the Virgin (Mary) in دير مواس دلجا or in Deir Mawas, Delga in Minya in Upper Egypt is the past few days in attacks by members of the MB and salafists is the latest page of destruction of history and the past by Islamists and their allies

This church was built in either the 4th of 5th century and has been a church with daily services since then or almost 1600 years. The church was built on previous Roman structures as the Copts have always been in the habit of not destroying the past. And this is a photo of the church before this atrocity took place

And here is a call for help from the priest and of all places it was directed to al-Jazeera when the church was burning

What a crime against humanity

Where is our so called free press and why are they not reporting on such crimes?

Can you imagine if this was a mosque that was subjected to such crime? I'm sure we would not have stopped hearing about it

But this is not the end of the story as it seems that الاخوان المجرمين or the criminal Brothers (read this as the MB) put in the church and now it is مسجد الشهداء or the mosque of the martyrs and yes they converted it to a mosque

I ask the readers: if a bunch of Christians burn then loot then convert a mosque like let us say al-Aqsa Mosque which is almost 1400 years old into a Church what do you think would happen?

But we are dealing here with the religion of peace
