Financial Times: Christians targeted in communal violence in Egypt

Many Islamists believe Christians, who are estimated to make up 10 per cent of the population, played an instrumental role in the ousting of Mr Morsi when was deposed by the army after massive demonstrations against his rule. Threatening graffiti has been scribbled on walls and churches, adding to a sense foreboding among the Christian minority.

But I thought Islam was a religion of peace?  (Or so I have been told.)

I found these Afghanistan photos interesting because:

  • My son-in-law is from Afghanistan
  • And my son will be deployed to Afghanistan next Sunday

These are pictures of a pre-Taliban, pre-radicalized Islam Afghanistan:

I have nearly two dozen Muslim connections at work. Most are "hello-good-to-see-you" connections. But several are budding-friendships. One is a Palestinian woman. The other a man from Togo. 

 

[as an aside]

To meet someone who is a displaced-from-the-"promised land" Muslim is interesting. This person loves that country too.

A Seminary classmate of mine, an Egyptian who lives in Cairo, wrote this today regarding the madness engulfing that city:

“Our country is going through a turbulent situation. Over 40 churches are totally burnt by Muslim Brethren. A curfew is imposed daily from 7pm to 6am. Also one of my dear friends in ministry passed away. But I am comforted. God is great and good.”
