The Muslim Brotherhood supporters, targeting Christians in the wake of President Morsi’s ousting is spiraling into a unhinged violence: women and girls are raped, boys are kidnapped and priests murdered.


Asia News details a long list of facilities from all over the country victimized in the attacks. All different denominations, all different regions have fallen into the chaos and mayhem.

The Telegraph quoted Ashraf ElKholy describing the Muslim Brotherhood intolerance and attitudes under the Morsi regime.

“Morsi was elected president and held office for one year but in that time he tried to make everything Muslim Brotherhood controlled. Egyptian culture over 5,000 years is a mix of religions and civilisations in which the Islamic religion is one ingredient of the Egyptian character,” he said. “The Muslim Brotherhood are like a Nazi group that demand that everything changes and people everything to their way.”

“Our peaceful protests (are) stronger than any weapon, and we don’t accept any violence,” said Murad Mohamad Ali, media adviser to the Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party.
