Graphic Video: Christian Women Sexually Assaulted by Men of Unknown and Presumably Unknowable Religion Screaming "Allahu Akbar!"
I love when the media calls events like this "sectarian violence".Two sides, each with their own grievances. Who's to say who's in the right? I think they do this because they find themselves in a leftist dilemma. Leftists see the world through the lens of power. The haves vs. the have-nots. That is their moral outlook on life. It has nothing to do with right or wrong, proper vs. improper action, only who has power and who doesn't have power. Christianity = West = power = bad. Islam = third world = no power = good. Which is a problem for them when it comes to Christians vs. Muslims in the Muslim world. It's just hard for them to wrap their narrow minds around a reality in which Muslims have the power and Christians are a persecuted and powerless minority. So, when they come upon this situation they resort to the thing that is easiest: they're all guilty. Just two sides engaged in cyclical violence. Why can't everybody just get along? Except that Coptic Christians in Egypt aren't terrorizing Muslims by burning down their mosques, and gang raping their women while screaming, "Jesus is Lord." The video below is fairly disturbing, even if it is not as graphic as advertized. It claims to be a "gang rape" over at LiveLeak, but if a rape does occur the video shuts off before that point. What it does show is a gang of men screaming "Allahu akbar!" as they assault two Christian women, beating them, and tearing their clothes off as the women cry and scream. The footage is purportedly from outside the Coptic cathedral which was victimized yesterday by a mob involved in "sectarian violence". I did not come back from watching it with a cheery outlook on life. You've been warned.
The entire culture, if that abortion can be called a culture smells like dead children and gang raped women and girls.
It and they nauseate me.

They don't have the power to get away with attacking the Muslims. No one really knows how they would act if they had the power. Not saying they would act like these Muslims but it's not a good example. Might is right with most of the world.
I refer to the Buddists in the far east. Even they in the name of religion will attack other religions.

And again I have to ask; should we offer sanctuary to these christians? Is that something that we should do? Or just empathize with them . About 75 years ago the left wanted to allow Jews to come here, but they were not allowed to do so.

Well Coptic Christians of Egypt and Assyrian Christians of Syria are the original indigenous people of those countries, and they are killing them today.
Also the USA government gives money to Native Americans, they have their own governments paid by the USA, they have their own lands, USA pays for their education, medicine and housing.

To refuse to accept the primary cause of the violence (religiion) is to lapse into moral relativism and shoddy thinking.

What? When did I suggest anything of the sort?
Oh, so we are going to dig up the crusades? How did I know that was coming?
Men will find numerous reasons to commit acts of violence against each other, of which religion is one. How much violence has happened in the name of liberal democracy, human rights, and humanitarianism?
But let's step back for a moment, exactly were in the Dhammapada can I find Buddha exhorting his followers to acts of violence and conquest? In which of the four Gospels does Christ say to slay the unbelievers and to convert the world by the sword?

And why isn't the crusades a valid example? Or do you wish to minimize what you can't explain away?
Doesn't make any difference to me. It can be Allahu Ackbar, God wills it, or whatever the Jews, Hindus and Buddish scream when people are slaughtered in the name of God. Religion is the cause and the result is always the same. I KILL YOU IN THE NAME OF GOD, who is all merciful.
It's been a pleasure.
