Tens of thousands protest Christian governor in Egypt
Islamic apologists and their stupid lies aside, Egypt has shown its true face. Christians are a persecuted class and locals have no problem reminding them of it. You are supposed to believe two lies in this article:
1. Egypt is tolerant of other faiths
2. Egypt is moving towards a democracy.
If you believe either one of those lies, leave this site and rejoin your global warming group. You really do not have the intellect to stay.
The rest of you read on and enjoy your Easter Sunday. Remember to Pray for the persecuted Christians inside the USA and all over the world.

CAIRO — Tens of thousands of Egyptians led by hard-line Islamists escalated their protests Friday over the appointment of a Coptic Christian governor in southern Egypt, deepening mistrust between religious communities during the bumpy aftermath of Egypt’s revolution.
-I do not consider it as much of a revolution as a US betrayal.
More than a week of protests seeking to unseat the governor of Qena province are testing the ability of Egypt’s transitional military rulers and the interim government to handle an Islamic movement capable of rallying large numbers behind its hard-line agenda without jeopardizing the future of a democratic Egypt.
-Tens of thousands protesting a vote because they lost it, sounds like democracy to me (sarc).
Since President Hosni Mubarak’s ouster in February after an 18-day popular uprising, ultraconservative Islamist groups have been flexing their muscles and vowing to take a more active political role as Egypt charts its transition to democracy.
-Did I miss the counter protest? You know the one that demanded democracy over the normal islamic bull based around the ramblings of a 7th century pedophile?
Friday’s demonstrations were the largest so far in the campaign against the newly appointed Qena governor, Emad Mikhail, and coincided with Good Friday services for most of Egypt’s estimated 10 million Christians.
-There are probably more than ten million. I have been to Egypt, there are underground churches all over the place. Islam’s death grip is slipping fast.
Protesters streamed out of the main weekly Muslim prayer services and gathered in front of the governor’s office and at other public squares, calling for Mikhail to be replaced by a Muslim governor.
Crowds barricaded vital train lines, blocked main roads and took over government buildings.
-And the police did what? Oh, that is right-nothing.
The bulk of the protesters were driven by a sectarian cause, believing it is not proper for a Christian to govern Muslims, who make up the majority of the population.
-Ok, you global warming believers have my permission to also fall for this uprising was caused by a sectarian group.
Egypt’s interim prime minister sent a key government minister in charge of security to meet with the protesters but he failed to persuade them to clear roads and train lines.
-Use force, it is what the pedophile mohammed did whenever things did not go his way.
