Before the USA began it's series of unprovoked attacks throughout the Middle East over the last decade or so, cheered on by right wing Christians, Christians in every target country begged the USA not to invade. Indeed, Pope John Paul II did as well.
Before we fomented the crisis in Syria, Catholic Rites, founded by Apostles, which had lived in amity with Moslems for a millennium, begged USA not to overthrow Assad. Nonetheless, we attacked.
And today, the Coptics are on their own.
Churches, houses, monasteries, orphanages, schools and businesses belonging to Copts were attacked in nine provinces "causing panic, losses and destruction for no reason and no crimes they committed except being Christians," the Maspero Youth Union, a Coptic activist group, said Thursday.
As if sensing trouble, just two days before Wednesday's violence, Egypt's Coptic Orthodox Pope Tawadros II called on all Egyptians to prevent bloodshed.
Right wing Christians, especially the Roman Catholics who spread blood libel against Moslems, will have much to answer for, when they face Judgment for their crimes. One wonders, by the way, where they get their funding for such conferences?
