Top Religious Institution in Egypt Demands Christian Television Station Shut Down

Another nail in the coffin of those Libtarded “Coexist” bumper stickers…  Here’s a more apropos bumper sticker:

Egypt Muslim group orders Christian TV station off air: report
Sapa-dpa | 29 December, 2011Times Live

An offshoot of Egypt’s top religious institution, Al Azhar, has called on the government to take a Christian television station off the air, allegedly for offending Muslims, the semi-official Al-Ahram newspaper reported Thursday.

The Islamic Research Centre, which made the demand, is headed by Ahmed al-Tayeb, the sheikh of Al Azhar, which is the Sunni Muslim world’s oldest seat of religious learning.

The centre accused US-based Christian broadcaster Al Karma (Vineyard) of insulting Islam and inciting sectarian divisions in Egypt, at a meeting late Wednesday, the newspaper reported.

Al Karama transmits its programmes via the Egyptian state-run satellite NileSat.

Christians, who make up around 10% of Egypt’s population, often complain of being treated as second-class citizens and feel marginalised by the predominately Muslim population.

Egypt’s Christians recently criticized state television for being biased in reporting about clashes between mainly Christian protesters and army forces in October, when at least 26 people were killed.

However, liberal and secular forces have accused leaders of both faiths of promoting hatred, and of exploiting sectarian sensitivities in the country.

    They will destroy all the ancient Egyptian artifacts that have only survived due to the fact that they were buried under the sand. The Pyramids will go too now that they have the means, modern explosives. Muslims like to attack the head, who do you think defaced the Sphinx?

    I predicted this awhile back but pay no attention cause I don’t have any idea what I am talking about.

  2. Of course the muzzies are gonna shut down all Christian or other religious media.

    They don’t like to have competition.

    What a thank you, it was just a few short months ago when Christians surrounded muslim protestors to protect them while they prayed. It is nice to see them return the favor (sarc).

    The Egyptian historian al-Maqrizi, writing in the fifteenth century, attributes the vandalism to Muhammad Sa’im al-Dahr, a Sufi fanatic from the khanqah of Sa’id al-Su’ada. In 1378, upon finding the Egyptian peasants making offerings to the Sphinx in the hope of increasing their harvest, Sa’im al-Dahr was so outraged that he destroyed the nose. Al-Maqrizi describes the Sphinx as the “Nile talisman” on which the locals believed the cycle of inundation depended.

    As you can see the mussies have been destroying ancient Egyptian artifacts for a very long time.

    “Christians, who make up around 10% of Egypt’s population, often complain of being treated as second-class citizens”

    Actually according to islamic law they are not even second class citizens they are dhimmis and it appears the jizya they are paying is not enough to save them.

    If you believe April showers bring May flowers — Then the arab spring will bring the winter of theocratic totalitarian governments.

    Shutting down Christian TV in Egypt is just one more part of the pogrom or a phase in the 1400+ yr. ‘total war,’ on Christianity in the Islamic world. The MSM does some reporting on the crimes perpetrated on Christians and other Infidels, however the true scope these horrific incidents and the real number of murders mayhem, and ‘religious cleansing’ will more than likely never be accurately tabulated or revealed. The MSM always ‘tap dances’ around and glosses over such issues out of fear of being shut out or even tossed out of those ‘Islamic Paradises’. How strange is was that not so long ago everyone on the Left, the pompous blowhards in the UN, and the political class in the West were on the bandwagon and rather vocal on the subject of ending apartheid in South Africa, but are strangely silent on the blatant and rather obvious daily assaults, murders, church burnings and property destruction suffered by Christians throughout the Islamic world. IMHO this is the ultimate double standard.

  7. […] Doctor Bulldog: Top religious institution in Egypt demands Christian television shut down Article (worth reading for its own sake) shows another Coexist parody. […]

  8. Ronin Says:

    The entire coexist concept is flawed, it assumes that all religions and ideologies desire friendship and are willing to work toward that goal. Switch things around a bit and the truth emerges. Was there ever a time when the Nazi’s, Fascists, Communists and the west could have just decided to coexist? Did we all miss the kinder, gentler Nazi? Should we immortalize the ones that never forced a human into an oven or remember that all of them were Nazi’s? They same can be done of all violent ideologies with the same results, none of them will ever be able to simply coexist. To ignore the truth is not just intellectually dishonest, it is complacency.

    Revenge is a Dish Best Served Cold a Few Centuries you did this exact same thing when you Exterminated other Religions and Civilizations all in the name of your God now its being Done to you
    Karma is a b1tch

      Karma is a bitch and one day you will get your karma right back at you. Its lowlifes like you that will turn the world into a sewer such as Karachi. You must have a lot of hate you support a filthy environment. You support a system where drugs kidnapping and murder are everyday occurrences, standard procedure. You enjoy the rape of women and institutionalized discrimination. Someone should report you to the authorities before you get other people killed. Make no mistake, the war is coming and you have no friends. They hate you, we despise you.

  11. It seems to me that MANY religions have used religious-cide against non believers.

    islam is no better.

    Perhaps these people from centuries ago were really no different than us. Perhaps they heard of all manner of atrocities being committed by muslim invaders upon local populations all over the place. If crusaders were working to exterminate muslims they did a lousy job. On the other hand muslims have done a damn fine job of exterminating all others. Well not all, they keep a few around to kick around, for the fun of it. Khomeini was wrong, there is fun in islam just not any fun we would recognize.

    Constantine was the first Christian Roman Emperor and to my knowledge he treated everybody with a certain amount of respect. IMO, earlier Rome could really be considered the first anti Christ. Constantinople was a mixed city until the ottoman islamonazis sacked it committing widespread murder torture rape and looting. Perhaps the crusaders were just less civilized than we are today.

  13. tgusa Says:

    And perhaps the Jews that we know for fact lived in the area at the time of Christ later fled to Europe and other places to save their own lives. And then later perhaps Hitler didn’t appreciate that which led many of the remaining to return after the Nazis were defeated.
