Media Bewails Egypt Deaths, Ignores Attacks on Christians and Their Churches

The media would have us believe that the Egyptian army is going about randomly choosing which Muslim Brotherhood supporters will live and which ones will die. The violent acts that precipitate these actual use of violence by Egyptian soldiers is not largely, but almost completely, ignored. So enamored in the Western Leftist media with Islam (a pan-national religion that calls for the subjugation of Christians are two good reasons for them) that they are trying their darnedest to portray the army as a bunch of murderous thugs out to destroy a moderate political party.

The truth of course is that many of the Muslim Brotherhood supporters are extraordinarily violent and that they know that forcing the soldiers to use violence is a great way to get press coverage from a dhimmified Western media; something that will in turn have a good chance of getting the EU and the US to drop any support for the provisional* government and hopefully start sending weapons to the MB - just as we have done in Syria.

[*Note that the first post had 'improvisational", which was a spell check error and certainly not a clever pun]

The Defense Minister has taken the bold step of promising to rebuild Christian Churches that have been ruined by MB supporters. This is a noble but risky move. The MB blames the Christians for the ouster of Morsi in the first place and  repairing the churches will just reinforce this assumption and possibly result in other Muslims joining in with the MB. The promise is also a tall order as the amount of Churches that have suffered damage is sickeningly long; another fact that the Western media ignores.

In Syria, more of the same:

"DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — Gunmen shot dead 11 people, mostly Christians, in central Syria on Saturday, state media and activists said. A witness described what appeared to be a sectarian attack indiscriminately targeting members of the minority.

A resident in the area told The Associated Press that the gunmen randomly opened fire on a street as Christians were celebrating a feast day. He spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals.

The state-run SANA news agency described the attack as a “massacre” and said that women and children were among the dead......"
