The controversy started when Egyptian authorities halted the construction of a church. Traditional Islamic law, which is not fully implemented in Egypt, forbids non-Muslims to build new houses of worship or repair old ones. "Egypt: 156 detained over Christian riots," from AP, November 25 (thanks to all who sent this in):

CAIRO - Egypt's prosecutor general leveled severe accusations Thursday against 156 Christians, including explosives possession and attempted murder, following clashes with police over the building of a church.
One person died and 68 others were injured when security forces halted construction on a church citing violations of building permits.

Angry Christians hurled stones while riot police responded with tear gas and rubber bullets near the church and later in clashes outside the governor's office.

The prosecutor general ordered a renewable 15-day-detention for those arrested, on accusations of sabotage, assault, possession of explosives and attempted murder of police.

Some 15 police officers were injured in the clashes. No one arrested or charged over the death of one protester, killed after being shot in the thigh according to forensic reports.

Coptic Christians make up about 10 percent of Egypt's population of 80 million. They complain frequently of discrimination, though they generally live in peace with the Muslim majority despite occasional flare-ups of violence, especially over limits on church building.

In his first comment after riots, Egypt's Coptic Pope Shenouda III blamed the local authorities of using violence against the Christians....

The construction had been ordered halted in this case because the building was not licensed to become a house of worship, a government statement said....

The Coptic community says authorities in Egypt are reluctant to approve permits to build churches, which they say they need to accommodate growing numbers of worshippers.

Human rights groups say attacks on Copts are on the rise, underscoring the government's failure to address chronic sectarian strains in a society where religious radicalism is gaining ground.

Another example of this posters tendency to promote religious hatred.
And it goes on and on, shameful to be honest.


It is not be promoting divisions based on religion, nationality or race that we will solve anything in this world.

On the contrary, the ones promoting religious intolerance actually WORK for the ruling elite, that much is clear.

And I'm not talking about people reporting on religious or 'terrorist' events, that can be like any other topic,
no, this kind of poster is way more vicious and only spreads pro-israeli, or anti-muslim topics, just check it out for yourself.

You got to hate religion and how it retards mankind. All sides of it have retarded humanity in so many ways over time.
Wipe it out totally.
Buddhism would have to be the most tolerant of other people but even they allow for slaves, the head dudes family had about the most slaves.

Yeah, but getting rid of religion won't solve anything - there are idiots in every walk of life and they'll just find other things to fight over.

For sure the idiots will still fight but how will they justify it in such a way as they do now and have the big organisations to hide behind with the weekly/daily story book reading to reinforce guilt and intolerance of others.

I dont ever see it happening, a religionless world. Unless the ancient aliens show up and give us our real truth.

I do hope moderators will take action against hate posters,
whose only intention it is to promote religious intolerance and violence.

WE DO NOT NEED THAT ANYMORE IN OUR WORLD
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH !!!
