    Between their daily Bible readings, the Coptics have been reading. They've been reading newspaper accounts of increasing hostility/criminal activity targeting Christians. They've been reading history. They've gone all the way back to 1933.

    You guys have it all wrong. Egyptian Muslims are peaceful. I mean a peaceful Muslim here on GT was explaining the good that the Muslim brotherhood does. I'm sure it's a big misunderstanding. Surely they don't see those Christians as Infidels?

    If only we could get the peaceful ones here to go out to the Middle East and be ambassadors for Islam.

    I wonder how many Coptic Christians we may have on GT that could share some experiences here.

    At which point did I sing praises of the Muslim Brotherhood?

    You said they were responsible for honor killings and other atrocities in the U.S., I countered and said that was false and the Brotherhood promotes jihad through peaceful means and that their primary mission was to overthrow governments they see as corrupt. The Islamist governments in the countries they operate in want them dismantled, jailed and if possible, put to death.

    The rest of the sarcasm in your post only serves to magnify the ignorance you have of Islam, such as Christians as infidels (false).

    Careful, Paul. The last thing you want to do is turn into the next snowbird.

    So no Christians in the Middle East were killed because they were infidels?
    What about Jews? Are they Infidels?

    I stand by my statement. Do you have any evidence it isn't true?

    I saw again, it underscores why church and state should never mix. It always ends in persecution and evil.

    The attacks on the Christians in Egypt happened before the darkness fell over Egypt. Now the crimes against them increase in the darkness.

    So far the darkness has covered Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Iran, and Somalia. It will be spreading.

    I wonder how Israel is planning to handle be surrounded by militant Islamic nations lusting for its death?

    There is no state in that part of the world, just the 'church'. The political boundaries on the map there were drawn by the French and English. Those lines can be easily erased and they will be.

    First, each state will become an Islamic state then the lines will be erased when the caliphate is established. It is just a matter of time.

    The more misery now the sooner it all will happen.

  15. It is amazing that more people haven't caught on to what is happening. Do they think that it was just coincidence that all these places just happened to revolt against their rulers at the same time? The Islamic Brotherhood is pushing openly for a caliphate. With Islam the religion is the government.

    The Bible is not silent on this. The caliphate has been traditionally the king of the South in Bible prophecy. The king of the South is to set up his government in Jerusalem just before the second coming of Jesus, but it will fail.

    Daniel 11:40 And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over.
    11:41 He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.
    11:42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape.
    11:43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.
    11:44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.11:45 And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.
    12:1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
    12:2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
    12:3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.
    12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

    See, it's not the Muslim Brotherhoods fault. It is those violent Christians in Egypt that are causing the problem. Nevermind that their homes and churches were burned down or that a military vehicle came in and ran over some of the protestors.

    Can we get the "Occupy ......." crowd to head over there and sit in. They can take their IPhones and Starbuck Coffee with them. O's Admin could even probably set some type of payment up for them. We'll just take it out of the fund we give to foreign countries to stabilize govts.

    Yes, Kristallnacht was in one nation, the Muslim campaign against Christians is worldwide.

    At which point did I reference the Black Panther Party? When did I say the Muslim Brotherhood does 'good'? I explained the goals of the Muslim Brotherhood; i.e. unarmed jihad, use of democracy to get things changed in their favor. So if you're going to quote me, get it right.

    I can't say that no Christians were ever killed in the Middle East, nor can I say that no Jews or Muslims were killed, either; because people from all of those faiths were at some point.

    Jews and Christians infidels? Do you just make this stuff up? In the Qur'an Jews and Christians are "People of The Book," meaning they are people of the holy scriptures (Torah, Bible) who believe in the one true God, just as we do. Where do you think the concept of God comes from in Islam? Abraham.
