Continued jihad against Christians in Egypt

In a dispute between Christians and the Egyptian military government, the verdict went against the Christians.  Even as evidence showed that it was Muslims who were the agressors, Islamic norms must prevail. 

Another example in a long and continuing line of Islamic supremacism actions, designed to drive out any dissenting voice.

Egypt sentences Copts over church scuffle  

AFP - An Egyptian military court on Sunday sentenced two Coptic Christians to five years in jail for violence and trying to turn a factory into an unlicensed church, judicial sources said.

The two men, also convicted of possessing weapons, were arrested on May 18 after clashes between Christians and Muslims in Cairo's Ain Shams district as the Copts planned to hold prayers in the building.

A Coptic-led group that took part in a reconciliation meeting between the two sides says the two men are innocent and their lawyers will try to appeal the ruling.

Sameh Abdel Satar, a member of the Egypt Lovers and Peace Society, said the Coptic Church had obtained permission in January to convert the building, which it had purchased in 2006, into a church.

(.) The caretaker government has said it will draft a law to ease restrictions on building churches.

So first they had permission, then they didn't.  Obviously the law, sharia law is upheld by the military government, as they won't think about removing restrictions, only to ease them.
