An Islamic Declaration of War on Christianity

st-marks-on-fireWhile it is easy to confuse the recent jihadi attack on Egypt’s St. Mark Cathedral in Cairo as just more of the usual, this attack has great symbolic significance, and in many ways bodes great evil for Egypt’s millions of Christians.

Consider some facts: St. Mark Cathedral—named after the author of the Gospel of the same name who brought Christianity to Egypt some 600 years before Amr bin al-As brought Islam with the sword—is not simply “just another” Coptic church to be attacked and/or set aflame by a Muslim mob (see my forthcoming book, Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians, for a comprehensive idea of past and present Muslim attacks on Coptic churches).  Instead, it is considered the most sacred building for millions of Christians around the world—above and beyond the many millions of Copts in and out of Egypt.  As the only apostolic see in the entire continent of Africa, its significance and evangelizing mission extends to the entire continent, including nations such as Sudan, Ethiopia, Libya, Tunisia, Morocco, and Algeria, to name just a few.  As an apostolic see—the actual seat of an apostle of Christ—the cathedral further possesses historical significance for Christianity in general.

In short, Muslim mobs—aided and abetted by the state of Egypt under Muslim Brotherhood tutelage—did not merely attack yet one more Coptic church, but rather committed an act of war against all Christianity.  Such an open attack on a Christian center which holds symbolic and historic significance for all Christians—St. Mark, whose relics are in the cathedral and who authored one of the four Gospels of the Bible, belongs to all Christians not just Copts—was an open attack on a universally acknowledged Christian shrine.  It was precisely these sorts of attacks on eastern and orthodox churches—including the destruction of the Church of the Resurrection in Jerusalem in 1009—that presaged the way for the crusades (back when Christianity was not utterly fragmented and disunited as it is today).

Put differently, this jihadi attack on St. Mark Cathedral is no different for Copts than a jihadi attack on the Vatican would be for Catholics.  Or, to maintain the analogy, but from the other side, it would be no different than a “crusader” attack on the Grand Mosque of Mecca for Muslims.

While one can only imagine how the world’s Muslims would react to a “Christian/Western” assault on their most sacred of shrines, “post-Christian” Western leaders, as usual, stand by idly (not unlike Egyptian state security, which stood by idly as the Muslim mob opened fire on the cathedral).

As for Egypt’s Copts, they certainly did rally to the defense of Egypt’s, if not the entire continent of Africa’s, most important cathedral—hence the draconian response from Egypt’s interior ministry (one eyewitness said security intentionally fired 40-50 gas bombs into the compound, knocking out many Christians, including several women and children). Just as Egyptian forces were wroth with Copts when they demonstrated against the ongoing attacks on their churches in Maspero in 2011—slaughtering over 20 Christians, including by intentionally running them over with armored-vehicles—it appears that Egyptian forces were rather irked with “dhimmi” Copts boldly defending their holiest site.

On the other hand, that Copts rallied to the defense of their cathedral—or, as Reuters characterized them, “an angry young fringe … of Christianity may also be turning to violence—has further validated the Western mainstream media narrative that Egypt’s Christian minority is somehow equally violent and responsible for the so-called “sectarian strife”—euphemism for Muslim persecution of Christians—plaguing Egypt.

The symbolical significance of this latest Muslim attack on Christianity was confirmed by several activists.  For example, Coptic Solidarity President Adel Guindy said, “Attacking the seat of the Coptic Pope is unprecedented in the last two centuries. It was a deliberate and humiliating act demonstrating the growing Salafist-espoused culture of hate and aggressive behavior towards all non-Muslims. It amounts to a State crime.”

Even the Coptic Pope, who must always be diplomatic lest his comments exacerbate matters for his flock, did not equivocate the severity of this assault on Coptic Christianity’s most sacred spot—not to mention his primary residence. Among other things, Pope Tawadros said that President Muhammad Morsi had “promised to do everything to protect the cathedral but in reality we don’t see this….  We need action not only words… There is no action on the ground.” The Pope further confirmed that “This flagrant assault on a national symbol, the Egyptian church, has never been subjected to this in 2,000 years.”

The Pope’s comment “we need action not only words” was in response to President Morsi’s declaration that “I consider any attack on the cathedral an attack against myself”—a declaration he made even as Egyptian state security were firing tear gas into the cathedral compound and standing by idly as Muslims also opened fire on the cathedral and hurled stones and Molotov cocktails, all of which was captured by photos.  (Even so, and as usual, the only people to be arrested in connection with this latest assault on Egypt’s most important cathedral were Copts themselves.)

Instead of words—which, from Islamists, are absolutely worthless—what Morsi needs to address is the fact that the most unprecedented and symbolically lethal attack on a Christian place of worship in post “Arab Spring” Egypt took place under his and the Muslim Brotherhood’s authority (under Hosni Mubarak, “not so much as a pebble”—as one activist put it—was thrown at the St. Mark Cathedral, a national landmark).

This of course is consistent with the fact that, unlike all former Egyptian presidents, who were all Muslim, Islamist President Morsi is the first president to refuse to enter a church—whether during the ceremonious installation of the nation’s new pope or whether during Coptic Christmas ceremonies. Could this be because the pious Morsi believes that a Christian church is like “a nightclub, [or] a gambling casino” as a prominent Egyptian fatwa council declared?  Could it be that he, like other popular Muslim leaders, simply hates and is disgusted by Christians?

At any rate, here is the Muslim world’s latest, most flagrant, assault on Christianity, even as Western leadership yawns—that is, when it’s not actively enabling such anti-Christian animus through its wholesale support for the “Arab Spring.”

    Mubarak for all his faults at least knew enough to keep a lid on the Muslim extremists. Too bad the Western world has no concept of this.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      "Mubarak for all his faults at least knew enough to keep a lid on the Muslim extremists."

      Most of his "faults" traced back to his efforts to keep a lid on the jihadis.

      • Mary Sue

        Yeah, that's pretty much the case. It could be argued that some of his methods were excessive, but then there's the ring of Saddam's voice in the wind:

        "You don't understand, I HAD to be brutal. Otherwise the people would have been ungovernable."

        • objectivefactsmatter

          Mubarak was the only true "Islamic moderate" I can think of. Then again, who knows what else he was up to. Just saying he was the best deal for those that wanted to keep things optimal until a better solution came along.

          And then there was 0'Bama and things went to Hell.

      I remember years ago, in school, being shown a film or video about the war in Lebanon (back when jokes about Nice Quiet vacations in Beirut were commonplace), and they said it was the Muslims against the Christians but gave NO context whatsoever as to why. It left the impression that the Christians weren't any better (morally) in the fight than the Muslims

  • Indus Valley

    Its 100% true that St.Mark's Cathedral is an important symbol of Christianity as a whole irrespective of denominations. Its sad that the western leaders are indifferent. Of course when the South Sudan Christians were slaughtered the western leadership was not quick enough to interfere as they did for the so called Kosovars, who already have a country called Albania. The Western leaders are really blind to the suffering of Christians in the Asia & Africa also at times even in Western countries. These leaders & majority of the people(who claim to be secular or atheists but come from Christian families) see these persecuted Christians in Asia, Africa and to certain extent even in Europe, as some 'religious wackos'.Which is pathetic. But at the same time they are tolerating the Islamic religious wackos in Western soil in the name of religious freedom. Quintessential double standard…..

  • Smote

    Why would the West respond? The West has NO leadership. Instead, we're saddled with spineless pricks in suits who spout smooth lies and spin. Truth will never flutter their designer neck-ties.

    It is the same throughout all of the Western world. There is not one leader with any balls to stand up and speak out against what is happening in Egypt. And the black stone worshippers know this. That's why they attack with impunity.

    How did we become so lame?

    Why would the West do anything for any persecuted Christian minority? Why? Oil. Obama, who has to be even more vacuous than Jimmy Carter (if that's possible), is just another lackey of the oil cartels. Cartel being the operative word: mafiosi.

    Why would the West do anything to help persecuted Christian minorities? Ask your local Bolshevist political commissar. Ask one. After all, they're all over the bloody place!

    • Raymond in DC

      "Obama, who has to be even more vacuous than Jimmy Carter (if that's possible), …"

      After the fall of the US-allied Shah of Iran in 1979, the Carter administration cancelled the contract to provide F-16 fighter jets and other advanced weaponry. After the fall of the US-allied Mubarak of Egypt, the Obama administration insisted on fulfilling the contract to provide F-16 fighter jets and other advanced weaponry. Twelve of the promised twenty F-16s have already been delivered to Egypt, now ruled by the Muslim Brotherhood, with eight more expected this year.

  • Cassandra

    Obama is a Muslim and a communist. We have had enough warning signs of this. He will do nothingh for Christianity . I do not think the pope will either.

  • Coptic John

    "and as usual, the only people to be arrested in connection with this latest assault on Egypt’s most important cathedral were Copts themselves"
    The same tactic of those savages, turning the victim into culprit … by taking "hostages" to bargain over (like the old days of their sick history), and hindering the Copts from asking their legal rights.
    "Consider and hear me, O LORD my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death; Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved. But I have trusted in your mercy; my heart shall rejoice in your salvation" Psalms 13:3-5

  • PamM

    Islam declared war on Christianity, and indeed on the rest of humanity, nearly 1400 years ago. The amazing thing is that so many people still haven't woken up to it yet.

    • Rosasolis

      The Ultimate Goal of the Islam is world domination, and forcing their Sharia Law upon all people!
      This is written in their Koran. Lately it has been a constant struggle between the 2 main groups
      Sunnies and Shieites–for domination. It seems that the Sunnies are winning, lately. They are now
      taking over all of Africa and Asia. Europe will be next, followed by North and South America.
      Perhaps the threat of the Islam Takeover could lead to World War 3 … if our Western World,
      NATO, and United Nations does not wake up quickly and realize how quickly the Islam is dominating
      several countries all over the world! North America and Europe must now start working together
      if our Western Civilization is to survive.

    • SSmith

      Not to forget the recent Jihad called upon the West ( and Israel) by Carter-backed Khomeini of Iran in 1980. Few took it seriously back then even. I remember it well, I got the creeps and thought half-heartedly, well we will see, and we certainly have !

  • antisharia

    Muslims declared war on Christianity 1400 years ago. Long before this there was their destruction of the great city of Constantinople and the Hagia Sophia, that was in 1453, go back even further and they're destroying Anticoh. Islam was founded on destruction.

    I remember in the early 2000s this sort of thing was called 'tribal skirmishes" in Africa; they didn't mention it was he Muslim fundamentalist tribe burning the tribal churches with Christians in them.

    My question to Muslims is why does Isa have a walk-on part in the Qur'an? If Messiah is meant to be the point of Torah why hasn't he returned self-rule to Israel…….all of it, as he promised in the earlier texts (sura 3:3, they MUST follow it)…..which then begs the question 'who is mohamet?' and why trust a god who demands you ignore previous commands he's given; even Jesus didn't do away with the law or Prophets, holidays &. Matthew 5:17.

      Islam wants Jews and Christians exterminated because Jews and Christians worship the true creator of the universe and Muslims worship Satan the destroyer.
      Muslims claim to worship the same god as the Jews and Christians, but they don't, they simply think that they do. Islam is a cunning and deceitful lie designed to snatch souls and hamper Christ's work on Earth.

    It is a central tenet of Islam that God wrote every word of the Quran. In order to be the divine timeless word of God – every word of the Quran must be Moral Perfection. If just one word of the Quran is immoral imperfection – just one word of violence, murder, hate, terror, torture, inequality of women, inequality of races, sex with children, rape, slavery etc then not only is the Quran not the divine, timeless word of God but Islam is not the true religion of God but a fraudulent, bogus ideologymasquerading as a religion.

    Being filled not with one word of immoral imperfection but thousands of words and teachings of immoral depravity, the Quran is not the word of God. and Muhammad being a criminal who murdered thousands was no prophet and therefore Islam is evil in the name of God. Islam is the greatest crime and sin ever committed by man against God.

    Christians, Jews, Judaism and Christianity are intensely HATED by American, British and European leaders. Barbaric Muslim terrorists are ADORED and supported with money and weapons. US/NATO waged war for months for Al Qaeda and other terrorists in Libya. Gaddafi was fighting AGAINST Al-Qaeda.

    Gaddafi gave a warning before he was hunted down by U.S. aircraft enabling Gaddafi to be violently physically and sexually attacked and murdered by the U.S. supported Muslims.

    Syria's Christians who were relatively safe under Assad are being specifically targeted for attacks and cruel killings by the U.S. supported anti-Assad Muslims. U.S. ruling elites are again supporting their top FAVORITE Muslim terrorists, Al-Qaeda, in Syria.

    Syria's Assad is now giving a warning:

    JPOST.COM: Assad: West will pay for backing al-Qaida in Syria
    By REUTERS 04/18/2013

    BEIRUT – Syrian President Bashar Assad accused the West on Wednesday of supporting al-Qaida militants in Syria's civil war and warned they would turn against their backers and strike "in the heart of Europe and the United States."…

    The United Nations says at least 70,000 people have been killed. Islamist militants have emerged as the most potent of the anti-Assad rebels…

    Drawing parallels with Western support for anti-Soviet fighters in Afghanistan in the 1980s, some of whom later formed the al-Qaida organization which attacked the United States in September 2011, Assad said Washington and Europe would regret supporting rebels in Syria…

    "The West paid heavily for funding al-Qaida in its early stages in Afghanistan. Today it is supporting it in Syria, Libya and other places, and will pay a heavy price later in the heart of Europe and the United States," … http://www.jpost.com/Middle-East/Assad-West-will-

    Assad is absolutely CORRECT. The price we will pay for Western leaders' love for Muslim terrorists will be horrifying.

  • http://twitter.com/McLoughlinPost @McLoughlinPost

    It would appear from other reports that this was not an attack against the church but rather an attack against a funeral service for four Christians killed in a gunfight in a nearby town, whereby a Muslim was also killed. That is as far as I have delved into the background thus far, took mere minutes, which, nevertheless, was far more effort than the writer took above. Clearly, there is more to the story.
