3 Dead After Anti-Christian Riots In Egypt

All over the middle east, Christians are becoming an endangered species under Islamic rule. Egypt, who's Christians have suffered persecution and Dhimmi status ever since the Arab Islamic conquests in the 7th century, is no exception :

THREE people have died during a riot outside a Coptic church in Alexandria, Egypt, after a protest against a play accused of offending Islam.

Dozens of people were injured in the crush. One man who died was trampled and had inhaled tear gas, police said.

On Wednesday, a Muslim man stabbed a nun in protest at the sale of a DVD of the play, staged at the church in 2003. The demonstration was the latest in a series of incidents at the church related to the performance of the play.

Entitled I Once Was Blind But Now I See, the drama tells the story of a poor young Copt who is drawn to Islamist militants who then try to kill him.

Coptic Christian leaders say the play depicts the dangers of extremism, not of Islam.
It's the religion of peace and they'll kill you to prove it.
