… Why the Church Attacks by the Muslim Brotherhood ?? …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,August 16th,2013

.. simplest way possible , is that because they can . They are also trying to send a message to Egyptian society (including the military) . We are still here , and we will do what we please .

.. One is that because the Christian minority, unlike the military, is vulnerable. Christians and their churches were increasingly subject to attacks as the Muslim movement sought to make the position of the religious minority untenable. As the Brotherhood seeks to demonstrate that it is still a viable force in the country’s streets even after its Cairo strongholds are uprooted, expect more attacks on Christians to remind Egyptians that the Islamists are still a force to be reckoned with.

.. Two , the attacks on churches are not just a regrettable sideshow in what may be soon seen as a civil war . The MB will , as you might think , work and scheme to try to regain power , especially after losing it in the way that they did . They lost it to the massive street protests that encouraged the army to launch the coup that ended Morsi’s rule. Rather, such attacks are an inextricable part of their worldview . They seek to work to transform Egypt in their own Islamist image.

.. In the Muslim Brotherhood’s eye , there is no room for Christians or even secular Muslims. That is why so many in Egypt applauded the coup as perhaps the last chance to save the country from permanent Islamist rule.
The Brotherhood may have used a seemingly democratic process to take power in 2012, but they would never have peacefully relinquished it or allowed their opponents to stop them from imposing their will on every aspect of Egyptian society .

.. As difficult as it may be for some high-minded Americans to understand, in this case it is the military and not the protesters in Cairo who are seeking to stop tyranny. Though the military is an unattractive ally, anyone seeking to cut off vital U.S. aid to Egypt should remember that the only alternative to it is the party that is currently burning churches.
