More Muslim protestors killed in Egypt
this morning," 

>Sisi is killing unarmed Muslims

Do you mean like THIS unarmed Moslem below?


There was nothing accidental about this. It tells me everything I might
ever need to know about the Moslem Brotherhood.

What makes me really angry however, is Baroness Cash-tin's visit to
Morsi in detention. That's our taxpayers' money used to fund this

Bluntly, if we intervene anywhere in the Middle East, I now think we
should be arming the Copts.

Ten-year-old Christian girl shot dead as

violence returns to Egypt's streets

Egypt's Christian community gathered in a church in
Cairo last night to mourn Jessi Boulus, who was shot
as she walked home from Bible class at the Ahmed Esmat
Street Evangelical Church where her uncle serves as
the pastor.

The shooting happened last week, but came to light only
yesterday as her family expressed anger over the failure
of the police to identify the culprit.

The death of the schoolgirl from a single shot to the chest
is the latest blow for Egypt's Christian community as it
is engulfed in a post-Arab Spring political crisis that
has seen the collapse of authority and rise of
Islamist militants.

Nasr Allah Zakaria, Jessi's uncle, said that members of
the family were focusing on achieving what little justice
they can for their "beautiful girl". Jessi's father told
the BBC: "Jessi was everything to us. Her killers didn't
know that Jessi was my life my future. They killed our
future. I lived for her." The family will visit the office
of Cairo's central prosecutor, hoping that Jessi's case
will receive a better response than the silence that has
so far followed the murder.

Egypt's Coptic community makes up about 10 per cent of
the country's 84 million population. Coptic and other
minority groups believe neither the police nor the
judiciary take their cases seriously.

Egypt's Christians had reported a rise in social
discrimination and violent attacks throughout the now
deposed Muslim Brotherhood president, Mohammad Morsi's
time in office.

Since the coup last month, Coptic leaders say the
situation is worse as tensions between the president's
Islamist supporters and their Christian neighbours increase.
