Egyptian Democracy: Mob Of 3000 Publicly Lynch 4 For Being The Wrong Kind Of Muslims
(An angry mob surrounds and beats one victim)
Sunni Muslim villagers killed four Shiite men on Sunday, accusing them of trying to spread their version of Islam, according to Egyptian security officials. The four were beaten to death in Giza province, near the capital, Cairo, in one of the most serious sectarian incidents in Egypt in recent months. The Health Ministry confirmed the death toll, adding that scores of Shiites were seriously injured in the attack. About 3,000 angry villagers, including ultraconservative Salafis, surrounded the house of Shiite leader Hassan Shehata, threatening to set it on fire if 34 Shiites inside did not leave the village before the end of the day, according to the officials. When they refused, villagers attacked them, dragged them along the ground, and partially burned the house, the officials said.So, Egypt, how is that 'democracy' working out for you? (Hat Tip: TROP)
For leaving Egypt and not being around to be lynched, that is...........

Sunnis killing Shiites. That isn't even newsworthy. It's been going on for centuries. Who knows? Perhaps they were going to immigrate to Dearborn, Mich.
Which in my eyes would make this a good thing.
