I really try to see the good in people; I really do.  Try as I might, in 7+ years, I can’t come up with one good thing about Obama that is worthy of any respect or even a mention.  Every day, it’s one disaster after another.  I try not to pay attention.  I try to focus more on my life than his, but it’s been affecting all of us so much that I have come to the realization that this one guy—Obama—has not only fundamentally changed the United States of America, but he has changed the whole world.

People should have realized where this guy’s loyalties lied when he went to Muslim countries to apologize for American exceptionalism when he first stole The People’s House through voter fraud.  He has called America a racist country even though he’s of mixed race, and whites voted for him with record votes.  He has single-handedly brought down world leaders where worse terrorist leaders replaced them, bringing anarchy to their streets.  He has turned government against Christians and Jews; turned race against race, favoring the black race over the white race, and uses the race card at every turn.  Obama has erased God from even being mentioned in schools.  He has armed our enemies and threatened and turned away from our allies.  He has sided with criminal thugs who were breaking the law at the time of their incarceration or death, blaming police officers.  He claimed Cambridge police officers “acted stupidly” when they were asked to investigate a crime taking place where a black guy broke into a home in an affluent neighborhood.  They had no idea that the black guy forgot his keys and was just trying to gain entrance into his own home.  How could the police have known that?  Even before he knew all the details, Obama called them out mainly because the black guy was a Liberal professor friend of his, and the police should have known you can’t pick on a black guy when he’s trying to break into a home.  This was a brief look at what was to come in the near future.  Obama lit a match to the Occupy Wall Street Movement in 2011 after he blamed the 1% for the social and economic inequality worldwide.

When Travon Martin got into a fight with George Zimmerman, the media immediately reported he was fighting with a white guy.  In no time flat, Obama took to his podium and stated that “if he had a son, it would look like Trayvon”, even before he knew the details.  When the media found out the guy was Hispanic, they quickly changed his description to “a white Hispanic” whatever that is.  Today we have Obama embracing black thugs, and he even arranged three of his reps to attend the funeral of another black thug, Michael Brown, who was caught stealing at a convenience store and ended up bull-rushing a white cop, Officer Darren Wilson, tried to take Officer Wilson’s gun when he tried to apprehend Brown.  Michael Brown ended up dead, and Officer Wilson was within his legal rights to use deadly force after being overtaken by a 6’5″, 289-pound black guy.  When you do the crime, you’ve got to be prepared to do the time.  Unfortunately, Brown chose death.  There was rioting in the streets and that’s what started the Black Lives Matter Bowel Movement.

Because of Obama, we have so many people out of work, many have no desire to work, and others can’t find work.  Millions of illegal aliens are flooding this country and are receiving taxpayer-funded assistance.  I can’t with good conscience call it “government-funded assistance” because it’s our money, not theirs that they’re giving these deadbeats.  Many illegal aliens are vicious criminals, many have killed Americans, yet they’re still out on our streets.  Only a black guy could get away with all this anarchy.  Imagine if there was a white guy or a white woman in The People’s House?  Do you really think he or she would be able to have all the lavish parties and vacations that Obama has taken advantage of, while doing nothing to protect this country or its people?  Do you think they’d be able to have his or her mother-in-law stay in The People’s House and also pay for all those lavish vacations and attend all those parties?  Think again.

Then there’s Benghazi, the NSA scandal, the IRS scandal, etc., etc, etc.  Obama has lied so many times about so many things, I couldn’t list them all here, nor do I have the time to list all that he’s involved in in his quest to take down not only America, but the whole world.  The bottom line is Obama has shown that he is an Islamic terrorist sympathizer.  He is not one of us, and he truly is his father’s son, whether it’s the Kenyan, Barack Obama, Sr. or the Communist, Frank Marshall Davis.  The jury’s still out on who his father really is, but he’s the spitting image of Frank Marshall Davis.  Obama is not on the side of America.  Why else would he give Iran everything they asked for, but never even asked for the four American prisoners rotting in Iran’s jails.  He’s not one of us because he’s always told our enemies what he’s doing and even gives them timetables.  What commander-in-chief would ever do that?  He’s not with us; he’s against us, and nobody seems to see it!  If you read any of my earlier posts when I first started blogging, I was singing the same tune, but nobody believed me.

I’ve never, ever been a political person.  I’ve always felt confident with the people America has put in office.  That changed with Bill Clinton and the Monica Lewinsky scandal.  I remember seeing his face, looking at the camera and pointed a finger stating that he didn’t have sex with “that woman, Monica Lewinsky”.  Little did Slick Willy know, Lewinsky had that infamous blue dress as evidence.  Then with his tail between his legs, he had to confess.  As far as I’m concerned, Monica Lewinsky will always be Bill Clinton’s legacy.

While Slick Willy was still in office, he was impeached, but it went nowhere because Democrats are apparently made out of Teflon.  The same can be said for Obama.  He’s sheltered by the Democrats and the media.  Americans thought putting a black smooth talker in The People’s House would show the world that we have risen above our tortured past, but Obama doesn’t want anyone to forget about it.  When he was campaigning, all he talked about was inequality this, and inequality that, share the wealth, and most people bought it.  I didn’t believe a word he said, and I still automatically think the opposite of whatever he says.

I apologize for this rather lengthy post, but I had to get it off of my chest, and I’m feeling a little better now that’s I’ve put it into words.  I’ve got to be honest.  When I started listening to Ben Carson, all he talked about was slavery and Jim Crow, and the only thing I thought about was, OMG, not again!  People were starting to turn away, then he stated that being in prison “made you gay”, and that didn’t go over well, along with other gaffes, but then he “softened it up” and now he’s chastising Trump.  I can’t say I trust any of the people running, but I’m watching them all very closely.  After watching the first Republican debate, I liked Trump and Fiorina.  Ted Cruz was scoring low, but then he decided to go along with Trump, and as is typical of politicians, whichever way the wind blows, that’s where they’ll set their sails.  I’m done with politicians, but I fear that Ben Carson shouldn’t have given up his day job because he knows absolutely nothing about foreign matters at all, which was evident in a lot of his interviews.

Now, we have one of the saddest dates in the history of America coming up tomorrow, September 11th, where we remember those innocent lives lost on September 11, 2001 because Islamic terrorists wanted to kill as many people as they could on that particular day.  An off-shoot of The Black Lives Matter Bowel Movement, Fuk Yo Flag, are threatening violence on September 11th in videos and blog posts to the location of Stone Mountain, GA.  They are calling for all blacks to attend a day of reckoning and are telling them it’s “open season on killing white people and cops”, and to burn all flags.  I’m wondering if they’re all going to also burn their EBT cards and welfare money.  Are they going to move out of their housing?  Are they also going to turn in their Obama phones?  After all, it’s because of the hard earned money from millions of people that they have these “free luxuries”, and many of them are white.

Get a load of this pathetic black woman with no pants on wiping her butt with the American Flag, with her middle finger stuck defiantly in the air.  I apologize to our military for her blatant disregard for this great country, where she can actually get away with this disgraceful act.  Even more pathetic are the rants from the self-proclaimed “King Noble, Black Supremacist”.  Read this and watch the video if you can stomach what this country has become because Obama built this…




#FukYoFlag Movement Calls For Black Lives Matter Violence On 9/11

Members of the Black Lives Matter splinter group Fuk Yo Flag are threatening violence on September 11 in videos and blog posts.

After posting a recent video that called for “open season on killing white people and cops,” a man who identifies himself as “King Noble, Black Supremacist” has put out another bizarre, expletive-laced video where he delivers a monologue of his contempt for both the American and Confederate flags, which he claims are symbols of oppression.

King Noble Reveals the Secret Location of #FYF911

The video begins with Noble saying:

The orders have just come down from the head organizer of #FYF911 movement from Palmetto Star — the ratched revolutionary, too raw for TV — the order has come down to reveal the secret locaiton of FYF mobilization.

The event will be held in Stone Mountain. Get there. In Stone Mountain, you will witness the end of U.S. imperialist white supremecy. September 11th, Stone Mountain. Get there.

Stone Mountain, Georgia is a park and the home of the Confederate Memorial Carving that commemorates three Confederate leaders of the Civil War: President Jefferson Davis and Generals Robert E. Lee and “Stonewall” Jackson.

Noble goes on to say: “Fuck yo flag. Stone Mountain. It’s over with. We will burn every single flag.”

The group’s website contains similair rhetoric.

“We, the people, are psychologically and physically breaking free of the imperialist, colonialist, and racist empires by burning representations starting on September 11th, 2015. Why September 11th? We recognize that these imperial powers attacked their own citizens on 9/11 in an attempt to gain more power from its people. We are not disrespecting any citizen that may have died during these attacks on this day; instead, we are acknowledging that, from this day forward, we are holding ALL imperial nations responsible for their needless deaths! On 9/11 we will be burning American flags, Confederate flags, police uniforms, and ALL representations of organized evil and oppressive nations. We also will be raising the Liberation flag and building on a new nation for the people. This is an INTERNATIONAL movement and a day of unity, progressive action, and liberation. To all OPPRESSIVE AND ORGANIZED EVIL after #FYF911, the people will not be bound to you any longer!!

The Fuk Yo Flag movement was reported on by Breitbart Texas in a widely-read story after they threatened a vet and others who were exposing them.

Here is the complete timeline of what happened in Benghazi, as told by Fox News’ Bret Baier in his televised special, “Death and Deceit in Benghazi”.  It’s comforting to know that Fox News tells it like it is and doesn’t hide the truth from the American people, and keeps us informed as news stories develop…

Know The TRUTH ~ Step By Step ~ Bret Baier’s ~ ‘Death and Deceit in Benghazi’

We all know what happened in Benghazi on September 11, 2012—the terrorist attack—that is if you watch Fox News.  If you watch ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC or CNN, you probably don’t know even half of what went on, and what continues to be unfolded.  Here’s your chance to get a little caught up before you cast your vote on Tuesday.  If you educate yourself before November 6th, you won’t vote for the clueless idiot who is inhabiting the White House.  Do your homework, please!!!

Fast and Furious aside, this latest massive screw-up by Obama should have him facing treason charges and should have Hillary Clinton stepping down, but since the media is covering up for Obama, clueless Obama voters will re-elect him.  They’ll be the first to scream when the country plummets to the depths of hell under another four years under the Obama regime.  Can you imagine if Bush was in the middle of this massive cover-up instead of Obama?  What do you think the Dems would be doing right now?  Don’t listen to Obama’s empty words and broken promises.  He’s trying to tell us that “al Qaeda is on its heels”.  This is the reason he’s trying to sweep this under the proverbial rug.  He wants us to believe that because Seal Team 6 (he takes full credit) killed Osama bin Laden that al Qaeda is no more.  He figured if he ignored what was happening in Benghazi that it would go away, but it mushroomed, even though the lamestream media was shielding the news from getting out.  Watch his actions.  Obama doesn’t care for our military and he certainly doesn’t care for America.  His actions fully dictate the realization of that.

In true “never let a crisis go to waste” fashion, Obama was quick to do photo ops in New Jersey alongside Chris Christie, where he told us that he won’t leave anyone behind.  Oh really?  Like in Benghazi, Obama???  We have an all volunteer military.  Do you really think they’ll be lining up to serve under Obama the way he treated Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods, and Glen Doherty?  My guess is certainly not!  He couldn’t care less about them, and his actions prove that time and time again.  May God rest their souls, and hopefully, Romney will get into office so America can start the healing process.

Please don’t vote for this clueless, narcissistic, ignorant fool again.  We have the power to put him out of office in four days!  We have the power to take back our beautiful country in four days!  Let’s get it done…



Four Dead Americans and Fox Saved a Country

October 20, 2012 | Filed underPolitics-DC | Posted by

It is with extreme sadness that America no longer has four committed civil servants and patriots to walk among us. The terror attack that struck our sovereign diplomatic mission in Benghazi on 9-11 will be remembered for more than just the loss of these men, and the fact that it was an act of brutal, premeditated terror.

Since that day, evolving official explanations have all been proven to be lies. Not just misleading tales or the “fog of war”, not the need to wait for investigations; the narrative that arose from the administration was a designed lie. It was all a lie designed to hide the failed foreign policy of the entire Obama administration.

American Heroes

Today, Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods, and Glen Doherty must now be considered heroes that saved America from a corrupt regime, from a decidedly un-American goal of appeasing Islam and reducing America’s standing across the globe. They did not just die in the line of duty in a harsh and dangerous den of evil, bravely trying to advance American interests without support and security they deserved. Their loss is now proven to have exposed an even greater evil, an enemy ‘inside the wire’.

We mourn the lost of these men and pray for peace and healing for their respective families, but we should also take some solace in the notion that their deaths, with the will of God, may have just altered the future of America. They may have, unknowingly, provided the first step in the restoration of our once great nation and her constitutional rule-of-law tenets. They have, through dutiful professionalism in the field; doing the right thing – exposed those who are unprofessional, self-serving, power hungry, greedy – those who will say or do anything to attain or preserve power.

There is an unknown quantity of components of the terror attack in Benghazi and perhaps some components we as citizens will never know. It is submitted however, that there are a few factual conclusions that cannot be disputed or denied. The Obama administration found no limits on people and conditions to blame or to fabricate lies. Benghazi pointed us back to a deeper, broken system of foreign policy where no associated government agency is insulated from blame, or was employed for nefarious ends. The stories changed so often, it is clear that the administration, all of them, whether by their own design or by obeying orders, practiced a ‘scorched Earth’ policy where nothing was too low or too base to employ in the cover-up.

What is even more egregious is that our standing in the community of nations is deeply harmed. Those who wish to do us harm no longer fear us. In fact, many openly defy us. Ahmen Abu Khutalla and Sulfian bin Qumu members of the terror team that killed and destroyed the good work of so few, not only in Libya but throughout the Middle East revel in their deeds. President Obama told us that justice will be done and yet both of these evil men and other terrorists still openly walk the streets of Libya brazenly, so much so that one even gave a two hour interview to the New York Times.

In support of these heroes, people who take their jobs seriously, did not stop investigating and reporting their findings. They did this while lessor icons of the main stream media not only did not tell the truth to America, they openly tried to buoy the very people who were deceiving America. When a member of the media attempts to correct the record on live television, in a non-factual manner, in an attempt to rescue those deceiving, the contrast is even more stark.

Last night, an example of true journalism appeared for all to see. In a must see Fox News expose of the nightmare in Benghazi, the deceivers were clearly brought into the disinfectant of the bright sunshine so shrouded to date. Bret Baier, Greg Palkot, and James Rosen detailed the facts, exposing just how disingenuous the evolving narrative and conspiracy was perpetrated on the American people.

Not all in Washington were complicit. There were others who stepped up for the people. We must give praise to some lawmakers that are doing stellar work in asking the hard questions. The few that are also exposing the facts that will prove who was complicit and essentially acted as accessories to murder by denying proper protections of civil servants that work in dangerous locations across the globe, especially in Libya.

From lower ranking career employees at the State Department and Department of Defense, on through to the NSC, and rising all the way to the top in each area, including the President – all failed at standing on principle, and defending America. They placed the sensitivities of Islam/Muslims above America’s interests, they did not do the most basic chore; provide for the protection of four Americans to mask a policy so anathema to our survival. Benghazi is one of the saddest days in American history, where Barack Obama tells us it was just not optimal in his political career. Shame on all of them.

James Rosen reminds us:

‘I do not think,” Nixon campaign aide Jeb Magruder told the Senate Watergate committee in the spring of 1973, “there was ever any discussion that there would not be a coverup.” Mr. Magruder’s lament aptly described the bureaucratic impulse to hide inconvenient facts that seizes every modern White House at some point. His testimony was brought to mind by the growing number of high-profile Republicans accusing the Obama White House of engaging in a cover-up in the Benghazi case.

In Nixon’s day, his crimes did not kill anyone – here, four heroes have sacrificed all, yet the cover-up continues. If America is truly watching – this may prove to be the end for Obama’s chances on November 6th. This also exposes the mindset on all his other issues. What you are being told needs to be viewed through this new lens of clarity. Ask yourself what Joe Biden asked us all in the VP debate: “Look, folks, use your common sense. Who do you trust on this?”

Here’s the video…

Four Americans Slain in Libya ‘Come Home’

Please forgive me for my long posts, but I haven’t blogged in so long and there is so much I want to share before Election 2012.  My eyes fill up as I write this post.  All the suffering we’ve endured, and the innocent are still victimized because of the reckless actions of a few idiots who don’t think before they act.  I know we as Americans are tough, but when atrocities such as this are targeted toward the one country on the face of the planet who has given a huge amount of foreign aid to other countries in need, it is quite disheartening.  We’re also hurting financially, but still the money flows to other countries.  Americans go overseas to help those in need, even jeopardizing their lives in the process.  We have diplomats serving in the Middle East whose primary mission is to help them.  Who do a lot of other countries come to when they need help after disasters strike their homeland?  America, that’s where!  We are there to help all who need it.  Now it may be time for America to hold off on helping other countries financially until we regain our own economy that is doing so poorly now.  How can we help others when we can’t even help ourselves financially?  After all, charity begins at home, doesn’t it?

To think this happened on September 11, 2012, eleven years after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in America brings more sadness to this country.  Was this orchestrated on this date intentionally?  We may never know, but it probably was because attacks prevailed in Egypt and Libya almost simultaneously.  We mourn the loss of four innocent Americans killed in the carnage that ensued when some jerk put out a documentary film, “Innocence of Muslims”.  Although I believe the documentary should never have been made, at the same time, I believe that all religions should be protected from being portrayed in a derogatory manner, and that means across the board, to all religions.  Just as they want us to respect their religion, it only stands to reason that we expect them to respect ours as well.  The retaliation by Islamist extremists has been severely overdramatized and misdirected.  They proved to be the heathens that they are by assaulting innocent Americans on an American diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya where their sole mission was to help the Libyans, and who had no affiliation whatsoever in the making of that blasphemous film.  I hope the Libyan government punishes these animals to the fullest extent of the law (story follows my post here)…

First, I’d like to list the names of the fallen…

U.S. Ambassador, J. Christopher “Chris” Stevens who served in Libya twice previously—as the Deputy Chief of Mission (from 2007 to 2009) and as Special Representative to the National Transitional Council (from March of 2011 to November of 2011) during the Libyan Revolution.  He arrived in Tripoli in May of 2012 as the U.S. Ambassador to Libya; Sean Smith, an Air Force veteran who worked as an information management specialist for the State Department; Glen A. Doherty, a former Navy SEAL who worked for a private security firm and was protecting the consulate in Benghazi; and Tyrone S. Woods, also a former Navy SEAL who had served protective duty in various U.S. posts.  Thank you all for your service and may God rest your brave souls and console your families at this time.

Mixed messages are always coming from Obama.  Remember when he was in favor of the Arab Spring uprising, calling it “a historic opportunity similar to the American Revolution and the American Civil Rights Movement”?  He hailed those mobs as a good thing…

“When one with honeyed words but evil mind persuades the mob, great woes befall the state.”
― Euripides, Orestes

Similar to the American Revolution?  One can hardly see the similarities between the two—with one fighting for liberty and the other fighting for oppression.  Similar to the American Civil Rights Movement?  Civil Rights?  Obama also touted how great things were going in Benghazi, stating during his Arab Spring speech, “In Benghazi, we heard the engineer who said, “Our words are free now.  It’s a feeling you can’t explain.”  Maybe it’s Obama who should explain to the family of U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens as to whether his civil rights were honored in Benghazi, and how civil his treatment was.

Obituary:  U.S. Diplomat J. Christopher Stevens

May God rest his very honorable and charitable soul.  My sincerest condolences to Ambassador Stevens’ family.

Another story about this atrocity, as the U.S. Embassy apologizes for “offending the Muslims”…

US Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens raped before he was murdered

This is what happens when there’s an incompetent in office who deliberately downplays evil in this country and around the world—he won’t be taken seriously.  One critical incident comes to my mind—the Fort Hood terrorist attack by an Islamist extremist, Nidal Malik Hasan—an incident Obama quickly labeled as “workplace violence”, then he had the gall to plead to Americans “not to jump to conclusions”, yet he enthusiastically gave a quick nod to the Arab Spring uprising.  His priorities are way off base.  These are, for me, just more “jump-the-shark moments” during his tenure, and there are plenty.  Most people are blind to his faults, which are mounting as high as his spending habits.

This is what happens when he channels his sympathies toward evil and disregards the principles and laws of the United States Constitution, which he supposedly swore to uphold.  Everything to him is a joke, but he is slowly becoming a joke himself.  I don’t care what anyone says about his [non]involvement here, I believe HE HELPED BUILD THAT, especially since he gives billions of hard-earned American tax dollars to foreign aid, yet doesn’t make any strict stipulations that should go along with it, like ensuring the safety of U.S. Embassy diplomats, etc.  If he had a backbone, he’d condemn their actions and stop all foreign aid until the atrocities are stopped in the Middle East!  Radical extremists see Obama as a fool, make no mistake about it.  They chant his name, not in honor of him, but to mock the joker that he has sadly become.  Why, you might ask?  Because they do not fear him.  Upheaval in the Middle East has escalated since Obama took office, especially since he consistently turns his back on the greatest ally we have there, Israel.  Obama is not the fearless leader he makes himself out to be, with his arrogant, chin-up stance.  He chastises us, the American people who love our country and are struggling to build a better America, yet he is strangely soft on the evil extremists in this country and around the world, downplaying their extremism at every turn, calling for us to be tolerant of them!  One might ask, “Just whose side is he on, anyway?”  Then we have Obama speaking out of both sides of his mouth again with a statement about Egypt, “I don’t think that we would consider them an ally, but we don’t consider them an enemy”.  Which is it?  Spoken like a true unconfused leader, huh?  These atrocities come just after Obama said during the DNC, “For all the progress we’ve made, challenges remain”.  Progress?  What progress???

God help us all…


Excerpt on Obama’s dilemma and how the Arab Spring turns sour for America, from the Daily Telegraph

“Having been an enthusiastic supporter of the so-called Arab Spring, Mr. Obama will now face accusations that he has been too conciliatory in his approach towards radical Islamist groups.

It is certainly true that, so far during the election campaign, he has tried hard to avoid discussion of difficult foreign policy issues such as Iran’s nuclear programme, or the fate of Afghanistan once American combat troops have withdrawn by the end of 2014.

The President may well feel that in a war-weary nation, exhausted after more than a decade of continuous involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan, there are no votes to be had from talking about America’s battle against Islamist militants.

But, as Jimmy Carter found to his cost after American diplomats were taken hostage in Iran after the Islamic revolution, the American public takes a close interest when its fellow citizens are placed in harm’s way, and expects its leaders to take the necessary measures to keep them safe.

Mr Carter was thrown out of the White House for failing to rescue the American hostages from captivity in Iran. And Mr Obama could suffer a similar fate in November’s presidential election unless he can come up with a convincing means of tackling the new generation of Islamist extremists in the Arab world.”




Coptic ties to ‘anti-Muslim’ film used to target minorities

NEW YORK – The Coptic Christian community in Egypt now is under threat of mass slaughter from Islamists under the pretense of revenge for a movie that depicts the Quranic figure Muhammad in a negative light, a senior Egyptian military official told WND.

The producers of the “Innocence of Muslims” movie reportedly are tied to the Coptic faith. Reports are claiming the movie sparked anti-U.S. attacks in Egypt and Libya, including the killing this week of the U.S. ambassador to Libya. However, some security officials believe the violence to be premeditated.

The Egyptian military official said today that Islamic groups are threatening to slaughter “the whole Christian Coptic community” in the city of Naja Hamadi, located about 60 miles from Cairo. Naja Hamadi contains a large Coptic community.

Two Egyptian immigrants from Southern California reportedly were forces behind the “Innocence of Muslims” movie. Joseph Nassralla Abdelmasih, the president of the Duarte-based charity Media for Christ, reportedly was a producer, while Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, a convicted felon, allowed his home to be used in the movie’s shooting.

Due to the Coptic ties of the two men, police in Los Angeles reportedly stepped up patrols around Coptic Christian houses of worship in the city, according to the LA Times. Similarly, the police presence was reportedly heightened outside Coptic churches in New York City.

Copts in Egypt have reportedly been concerned about the prospects of persecution after the downfall of U.S. ally Hosni Mubarak resulted in the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in the country’s parliament, presidency and military.

While Copts were targeted by Islamists during Mubarak’s regime, such persecution has increased exponentially since Mubarak’s ouster.

Just weeks after Mubarak was booted, Muslim villagers in March 2011 reportedly set fire to a Coptic church while attacking Christians on the street.

Since last year, two other churches were set on fire in the Imbaba neighborhood of Cairo and in Edfu in the south of the country. Coptic Christian families were also reportedly evicted from their homes in Alexandria.

Some reports say more than 200,000 Copts already have fled their homes.

When Copts attempted to protest last October, security forces reportedly fired at the protesters, killing 24 and wounding more than 300 people.

The Coptic Church, a major Christian community in Egypt, is said to date back to the origins of Christianity. Christians were the majority in Egypt until several centuries after the Arab conquest of the seventh century. They now make up between 5 and 10 percent of the population.
