Recent clashes between Muslims and Christians in Egypt!

The Western Media, owned by the Jews, is bashing Islam one more time! The recent clashes between Muslims and Christians in Egypt have been exaggerated to the highest limits by the Western Media in an effort to degrade the reputation of Islam throughout the world during the blessed month of Ramadan and to conceal the Russian atrocities and massacres committed in Chechnya.

All indications from the latest clashes prove that religion was not the real motivation behind such killings. Sunday's violence, in which gunmen fired from rooftops and looted and burned shops, arose out of a dispute between two shopkeepers Friday, December 31st, 1999. Eyewitnesses stated that the trouble began at 4:00 p.m. Friday when a Muslim trader, Fayez Awad Hussein, came to buy material from Rashed Fahim Mansour, a Christian shopkeeper. They quarreled and Hussein's two brothers arrived to help him. Mansour escaped and headed for the police station. Hussein and his brothers began attacking Mansour's shop! Two security guards opened fire, wounding people on both sides.

Muslims don't just kill innocent people, especially during the month of Ramadan! In this sad case, the fight that originated between the two shop-traders was a fistfight! The police are the ones who opened fire! Almost everyday we hear about fistfights and local clashes throughout the world, but unfortunately, when the media smells the word Islam, they blow the horns in order for their ratings to skyrocket.

As far as I know, Egyptian Christians are living much, much better life than Muslims in Egypt. So, I'm not sure what did the media mean by "Human rights violations." Egyptian Christians "Copts" already occupy high-level positions in the Egyptian government! The majority of them are business owners and have lots of money in Egypt. Since the early days of Amro bin Al-Auss who opened Egypt, Egyptian Christians have been enjoying a good life in Egypt...So give me a break!
