Calm "after" the storm in Alexandria

Click here to watch segments of the demonstration in Alexandria *

3 people were killed and over 80 others were wounded in yesterday's demonstrations, and according to eyewitnesses; many Christians' owned shops and jewelry stores located on Isis street, Ragheb Street and in Ghorbal district were looted and/ or set on fire , many vehicles were also set on fire including police vehicles and 3 fire trucks

Security forces were chasing demonstrators from one street to another when demonstrators wanted to raid into 2 other Coptic churches in Ghorbal district.

Demonstrations have come to an end on Saturday morning , with heavy police presence in many districts of Alexandria

There is a strong belief among many moderate Muslims and Christians that State Security Intelligence instigated the demonstrations on October 13, 2005 when radical Muslims went to their headquarters in Alexandria complaining about the distribution of a CD of a play that took place 2 years ago at St. George church, which they viewed as derogatory to Islam and instead of trying to see what's on the CD they told the radicals to "Take revenge for your faith by yourselves".

Al Dustor Egyptian newspaper published a report revealing the involvement of the Egyptian State Security Intelligence (SSI) in Alexandria in instigating the crowd on October 14th, 2005

The Coptic church is still adhering to its position that it will not provide an apology as there was nothing wrong in the play as they say.

Copts also tolerate the constant attacks and smearing of their faith through the loud speakers of mosques all over Egypt. Many Imams of Egyptian mosques use the loud speakers as a tool to let their frustration out on Christians by calling them names and associating them with Zionism and the Crusades. Jews are also referred to as descendants of apes and pigs.

* (The crowd chanting: Allah is greatest, This is an "infidel" government, other chants not included in these segments were" There is no God but Allah, Christians are the enemies of Allah)

Moderate Muslim says the play does not defame Islam but exposes the radicals

The thing that continues to amaze me is that there is not a peep of public disapproval from ANY Muslims when Western non-Muslims are slaughtered like cattle and their bodies desecrated; yet even the possibility that someone might offer information on the methods Muslims use to evangelize prompts violent outrage, wanton destruction and murder of Christians.

Those protesters were not all members of Al Qaeda either. They were average, run-of-the-mill Eqyptian citizens. If these ordinary Muslims are capable of such bigotry and violence-- TO A NUN, FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE!-- what are we supposed to believe about the "silent" majority of "moderate" Muslims?

You have two choices when dealing with Islam: convert or, ultimately*, be killed.

* Until such time as Muslims actually impose sharia on all the world instead of just on Western journalism, rather than convert you may choose to be a 4th or 5th class member of the human race, with no rights or priviledges in dhimmitude.

The only real thing that will stop this is when coptic and christians wil react to any attack in a way that will make clear that after any and all attack there will be a relly greater payback.
