In Pictures: Savage Islamic Attack on St. Mark Cathedral Allowed by Egyptian Forces

Egypt’s Coptic Christians frequently accuse State Security and police of overlooking Muslim attacks on Christians and their places of worship, especially monasteries and churches.  The Western mainstream media often ignores these accusations, or mentions them in passing as “unsubstantiated reports.” Last weekend’s assault on the St. Mark Cathedral — unprecedented in significance — was no different, except for the fact that there are many pictures demonstrating State complicity.

To recap: After last Sunday’s St. Mark Cathedral funeral service for Egypt’s most recent Christian victims of jihad — including one man set aflame — gangs of Muslims attacked the Christian mourners, resulting in the deaths of two more Copts, including one shot through the heart.   Hundreds of Christians retreated back into the cathedral — both to get out of harm’s way, and to protect their holiest site.  They were trapped there all night, enduring projectile and firebomb attacks.   State Security also opened fire on the cathedral, including through tear-gas.

Several Egyptian media outlets and newspapers, especially the popular Youm7,  have published a variety of pictures showing mobs, if not terrorists, attacking the cathedral in front of absolutely indifferent, possibly approving, security forces.  Some of these pictures, with my captions, follow:

Muslim”youth” climb to the roof of a building adjacent to St. Mark Cathedral to attack it. To the left, a man winds to hurl a projectile at it. And in the white circle to the right, high-ranking Egyptian officials and security stand by watching (easily recognizable by their hats and helmets).

A better close up. This image shows a masked sniper with rifle in hand preparing to open fire at the cathedral — confident that security forces will not intervene.

Same man opens fire.

Another man prepares to hurl stones at the cathedral, even as security forces stand by watching.

A masked man, with a rifle, sits inside an Egyptian armored vehicle — bought with U.S. taxpayer money — and fires at the cathedral.

More snipers attacking Copts and their cathedral.

Yet another picture showing rioting Muslims throwing projectiles (upper left-hand corner) at the cathedral. A man with a pole (in yellow circle) dismantles or destroys something — a cross, or something else of Christian significance? — and Egyptian “security” (lower left-hand corner, in red circle), idly stand by.

St. Mark Cathedral, holiest site for Egypt’s indigenous Christians — and home of the Coptic pope — now turned into a war zone, under Muslim Brotherhood leadership.

A Muslim burns a Bible in front of the cathedral, right under security’s nose. In Egypt, if a Christian is merely accused of “desecrating” a Koran, he/she gets several years in prison. Yet here is a Muslim burning a Bible, with photo evidence, but he has nothing to fear.

A collage of some of those on rooftops firing at the cathedral. Most of them are known by name — including the second one in the Palestinian scarf — and Copts regularly report them to police and security, to no avail.

More rooftop terrorism against the cathedral.

The aftermath: the entrance of Coptic Christianity’s holiest site, the St. Mark Cathedral, after Egypt’s Muslim mob and State Security were through with it.

Finally, lest there be any doubts as to the Islamic nature of this attack, here is a video of Muslims chanting “Allahu Akbar!” in front of the cathedral as smoke rises from it:

    US taxpayer dollars (borrowed) at work. What outcome is there apart from war?

  • Alvaro

    I guess we can expect reports about Christian violent demonstrations and rioters mudering random Muslims in retaliation for the bible burning. Not to mention, the media will apologetically blame the man burning the bible and excuse the rioters.

    That would only be the case if the *Koran* was burnt and the rioters were *Muslims*, you say? I get it now, and it makes all the sense in the world. Some books are holier than others, and some people's feelings are more important. How silly of me.

    • nelly2004

      Some people are more civil- Christians know the is a book made of paper , and destroying it can't destroy the word of God. The muslim society is not a civil society and that is the first thing you need to have a democracy- don't know why our politicians think they can just go in and free the people and there would automatically be democracy. Their book tells to kill or convert or enslave anyone who is not Muslim that's why the government lets this stuff go on because their religion doesn't make their lives better and has no love in it. The government knows that people are being drawn to Christianity and they don't want that. All throughout the muslim world Muslims are starting to listen to the word of Jesus
      The book son of hamas was a great expose of the religion and the terrorists, the son of hamas converted to christianity.

  • Nancy

    I wish our country would cut off all money to the Egyptians. Our own government has armed the Muslim brotherhood to kill Christians and destroy their cathedral. It makes me sick! The ones we should help, we are harming. It is a disgrace!
    Just how is the money our country has sent to Egypt going to help either the Christians , or Israel? We are funding the wrong people. We should fund only those who are our allies.

    • And so it goes

      I feel your pain, Nancy. But when Egypt finally and totally collapses and millions upon millions of Egyptian muslims are brought to the US for re-settlement, it will make this current situation look good. You must remember that America re-elected Obama with our eyes open…..

    • Crouse

      I wish the same. Our government is going down hill fast.

  • BS77

    What did anyone expect from the barbarians? Egypt is a hell hole. I can't believe our tax dollars are going to
    that garbage heap.

    • Cassandra

      Muslims are full of crap. They always feel superior. The bible cannot refer to Mohammed. Mohammed appeared 700 years after the bible. The two popes are stupid because what they do, bow to Islam, is viewed by the Muslims as Submission.

    • And so it goes

      You are absolutely right. And sooner, rather than later, I might add. But Obama hates the US military so that would just be another benefit according to him. If he could watch his friend, Chris Stevens, (an Obama worshipper) getting murdered (and, as I have heard, Obama set the whole thing up), then surely he knows who will end up dead because of those weapons.

    The west is incapable of dealing with the barbarians at its gates, but this is what is happening under their watch –

    And its glaring destruction can be seen all over the Mid East & beyond –

    A western disaster.

  • Poupic

    Tell me that I have Islamophobia if you want but it is undeniable that Islamists are attacking peaceful Christian Kopts. Barack Hussein called The Muslim Brotherhood “MODERATE!” but there is nothing moderate about the increased attacks against Kopts and women in Egypt since the advent of the Muslim Brotherhood with the help of the Barack Hussein administration. Ask yourself why having done what he did to Egypt has he turned and declared Erdogan’s Islamists in Turkey “a friend and ally” speaking of Turkey? Journalists and generals defenders of Turkish democracy languish in jail. Why is Barack Hussein doing such things to us all?

    • And so it goes

      And we must not forget who he appointed as CIA Chief: John Brennan, a Catholic turned Muslim. While in Saudi Arabia working as the CIA Station Chief, Brennan was the object of a Saudi influence operation which worked like a charm. Then we have Chuck Hagel whose parents had his brain surgically removed when he was born so that life would be ever so much easier for the dear boy…..

  • Smote

    Let's go to Mecca and do the same thing… with nuclear weapons. Let's face it, if the crap the poor Copts in Egypt put up with is anything to go by, the worshippers of the black stone will do the same to us as soon as they have the opportunity. Time for a preemptive strike. I'll happily push the button.

    • idomeneo

      You hit the nail on the head. Nuclear annialation is the only way end the muslim scourge before it destroys human civilization

  • Brujo Blanco

    We have continually made the mistake of arming people who kill innocents and are.likely to kill us if given the opportunity. The Islamic criminals in Egypt will continue to kill. When they run out of Christians trust will select.another target. That's what happened when they ran out of Jewish targets then the went after the Sunday people.

    • defcon 4

      Islamofascism has always been egalitarian when it comes to picking kufr/infidel targets for extermination. From the Buddhists, Hindus and Sikhs of the Indian sub-continent (of whom tens of millions were slaughtered), to the Christians and Jews of the Mid-East and N. Africa, to the animists of the Sudan, to the kufrs/infidels of E. Timor (mostly Catholic) Islam has never preferred one target over another.

  • LindaRivera

    These are the 'people' Western ruling elite TRAITORS have brought by the many millions into America, Canada, Britain, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. Once Muslim numbers become even greater in our countries, this is what WE will be facing thanks to our TREASONOUS leaders. God help our non-Muslim brothers and sisters who are under constant attack in Egypt, Pakistan, Bangladesh, African countries, Thailand, Philippines…an endless list. Western media remain silent:


    Daily Times, March 16, 2013: Christians told, ‘protest again and you will die!’

    HUNDREDS of Pakistani Christians became homeless in Badami Bagh, Lahore, on Saturday, March 9 after an attack by a mob of 3000 fanatics. Two hundred homes in the Joseph Colony were turned to ashes and poor Christians of the neighbourhood are now living in the streets, desperate for food and other needs. Their children cannot attend school or college due to the destruction and fear.

  • LindaRivera

    There are excellent reasons why non-Muslims in Western countries are against Muslim immigration and vehemently against the shocking cruelty and enslavement under sharia.

    Under Islam, Egypt’s Christians have lived in hell for centuries. The kidnappings, rapes and violent conversion to Islam of Christian children and other horrors has worsened under the Muslim Brotherhood. What happened to Christian Egypt is a WARNING to the world.

    The next stage of a nation conquered by Muslims is the MASSIVE kidnapping of non-Muslim female CHRISTIAN children by male Muslims. The kidnappings are perpetrated with the full cooperation of ruling elites, courts and the police. The agonized parents NEVER get their beloved children back. The severely abused, terrorized girls are FOREVER separated from their loving parents and family. These terrible crimes against God and humanity must NOT be allowed to happen in Europe and Britain!

  • LindaRivera Pakistan frees gang rape accused
    Pakistan on Tuesday released five men accused of gang rape after the Supreme Court rejected an appeal by the victim against their acquittal.

    Mukhtar Mai, now 40, was gang raped in June 2002 on the orders of a village council as punishment after her younger brother was accused of having illicit relations with a woman from a rival clan.

    • defcon 4

      So she was raped, because of something her brother did? This is islamic "justice"?

      • LindaRivera

        Islamic justice is the total opposite of American/British law and Western civilization.

    Untill and unless we as a western people arm and actively defend the Copts, all it is is lip service. Deo Volente!

  • john spielman

    Get the Cotic Christians out of Egypt now into the US and Canada, and exhange them for muslims in North America, since ourNorth American muslims want sharia law they should be happy in Egypt.

    • Smote

      Not sure I agree with that. I understand your reasoning. However, why should Christianity be kicked out of Egypt? After all, the Christian presence predates the arrival of the worshippers of the black stone.

      It is the true kaffir (Islam) that should be kicked out of Egypt!

  • BLJ

    I would love to liquidate all of these Muslim animals.

  • JacksonPearson

    “Allahu Akbar!”
    Wrong, Allah is not great, nor ever will be…Why?…:

    There are 3 requirements for Islam to be from God:
    1. Every word of the Quran must be Moral Perfection. If just one word is immoral then the Quran is not from God but from man and ALL Islam is fraudulent.

    2. God cannot have as his prophet – a criminal receiving divine teachings otherwise God is equally guilty in all the crimes committed by his prophet and therefore is no longer Moral Perfection and therefore no longer God.ALL Islam would be fraudulent.

    3. It is central to Islam that Sharia Law is the divine constitution of God.To be so EVERY teaching of Sharia Law must be Moral Perfection. If only one teaching is immoral then ALL Islam is fraudulent and not from God.

    Islam's Allah/Muhammad have been an epic failure, PERIOD

  • Michael Copeland

    Egypt is a failed state. Its law and order are disintegrating under the Sharia-driven Muslim Brotherhood. No Western State should be aiding this enemy.

      Then to us here in America as those radicals perceive America as the enemy of Islam. So once they are done with killing the Copts in Egypt, we will be the next victim.

  • WilliamJamesWard

    Who in a World that has lost moral balance and infested with leftist thinking, undermined
    by anti-God forces of darkness and where all sin is deemed OK if not in your face, who
    is going to the aid of the Coptic Christian Church in Egypt, who will call for a crusade against
    the deamons of Islam. America has shed blood and treasure fighting Communism around
    the World and has elected and promoted Communism and Socialism at home. America
    has a war going against the Christians and Jews, promulgated by Courts and Political
    elites, who is going to stop the persecution in America, who is going to stop the slide of
    America into Godless atheism, Communist slavery and Liberal degeneracy, no one.
    America was the Nation that helped people be free in the World and now is and exporter
    of arms to those who will kill and enslave thier citizens, Islam is a religion of peace,
    George Bush needs to apologize to all who have lost thier lives since that stupid remark.

    Four more F-16 fighter jets left the U.S. on Thursday headed for Egypt as part of a foreign aid package that has generated controversy given the political upheaval in the Mideast country.

    Critics say the military aid should stop because the president Egyptians elected last year has led the Muslim Brotherhood, called President Obama liar and urged that hatred of Jews be instilled in children.
