Muslims attack church in Egypt, Christians prosecuted for defending themselves

Islam attacks Christians and destroy their church, and they defend themselves with rocks and knives.  For that the authorities arrest and prosecute Christians, not the Muslims who initiated the attack.

Where is the outrage from Obama?  Where are the letters of condemnation from Western leaders and the media?  Anybody??

From AINA May 27

Egyptian Military Court Prosecutes Only Christians in Muslim Church Attacks

(AINA) -- A Military court in Egypt has sentenced three Christian Copts to 5-years imprisonment on charges of possession of firearms and pocket knives. The Court released all other Muslims and Copts arrested following clashes on May 19 over the re-opening of St. Mary and St. Abraham churches in Ain Shams West (AINA 5-24-2011). Copts Emad Ayyad and Ayman Youssef Halim were convicted of carrying firearms. Emad Ayyam's son, Ayad Emad Ayad, was convicted of carrying a pocket knife.

Eight Copts, mostly students, were arrested in Ain Shams West and charged with rioting, violence and causing injury to citizens. Three of the Copts were also charged with possession of firearms and knives. Police arrested three under-age Muslims on charges of throwing stones at the army.

Defense lawyer Abraham Edward said "This is a very unjust, severe and cruel verdict." He said that as lawyers they are unable to fathom what is going on.

"Today's case is very strange, a case where there is not one shred of evidence to indict them. If this case went in front of the International Court of Justice they would all be set free." He criticized the five-year prison sentence handed down to Ayad Emad Ayad for carrying a pocket knife. According to the law this is punishable by a six months suspended sentence.

The only evidence they need is the fact that they are all Christians living in an Islamic country.  It should only get worse when the Muslim Brotherhood with the Salafis take charge.
