From Aina:

(AINA) -- A mob of over 3000 Muslims attacked Copts in the village of Kobry-el-Sharbat (el-Ameriya), Alexandria this afternoon. Coptic homes and shops were looted before being set ablaze. Two Copts and a Muslim were injured.
The violence started after a rumor was spread that a Coptic man had an allegedly intimate photo of a Muslim woman on his mobile phone. The Coptic man, Mourad Samy Guirgis, surrendered to the police this morning morning for his protection.

According to eyewitnesses, the perpetrators were bearded men in white gowns. "They were Salafists, and some of were from the Muslim Brotherhood," according to one witness. It was reported that terrorized women and children who lost their homes were in the streets without any place to go.

The inevitable outcome of the Arab Spring in Egypt.

I find it impossible to believe that our leaders at the top didn't full well know that this would be the outcome.

They ought to have known, because it was the inevitable outcome of our policy in Iraq.

But, in Egypt, the outcome is more obvious and tragic, because the Christians represent such a high percentage of the population.

Here's what I believe: they did full well know what the outcome would be.

The most gracious thing that I can say about such a travesty on the part of the Obama administration's position on the Arab Spring is that this administration thinks that a cleansing of Islamic nations of Christians will promote world peace. Even as I type that in, I'm cringing. Because I don't believe that they think such a thing at all.

If that was the intention, well, it will only have the opposite effect.
