The American Pravda controls the majority of the news that reaches average Americans. Therefore, they screen the stories that they choose to share with us little peons.
Since these godless liberals share a disdain for the God of the Bible with those of the Islamic faith, the American Pravda has little desire to report about the horrific treatment of Christians by those who are devout followers of the "religion of peace".
That being said, if it were not for the internet, we would be clueless about such events. Here is one more such incident, via Jihad Watch:
Egypt: 4000 Muslims chanting "Allahu akbar" torch church, attack Christian homes
"The father of the Muslim woman was killed by his cousin because he did not kill his daughter to preserve the family's honor, which led the woman's brother to avenge the death of his father by killing the cousin. The village Muslims blamed the Christians."
Just think about that paragraph, in all its various parts, for awhile.
'Nearly 4000 Muslims Attack Christian Homes in Egypt, Torch Church,' by Mary Abdelmassih for AINA, March 5 (thanks to Pamela Geller):
(AINA) -- 'A mob of nearly four thousand Muslims has attacked Coptic homes this evening in the village of Soul, Atfif in Helwan Governorate, 30 kilometers from Cairo, and torched the Church of St. Mina and St. George. There are conflicting reports about the whereabouts of the Church pastor Father Yosha and three deacons who were at church; some say they died in the fire and some say they are being held captive by the Muslims inside the church.
Witnesses report the mob prevented the fire brigade from entering the village. The army, which has been stationed for the last two days in the village of Bromil, 7 kilometers from Soul, initially refused to go into Soul, according to the officer in charge. When the army finally sent three tanks to the village, Muslim elders sent them away, saying that everything was "in order now."
A curfew has been imposed on the 12,000 Christians in the village.
This incident was triggered by a relationship between 40-year-old Copt Ashraf Iskander and a Muslim woman. Yesterday a "reconciliation" meeting was arranged between the relevant Coptic and Muslim families and together with the Muslim elders it was decided that Ashraf Iskander would have to leave the village because Muslims torched his house.
The father of the Muslim woman was killed by his cousin because he did not kill his daughter to preserve the family's honor, which led the woman's brother to avenge the death of his father by killing the cousin. The village Muslims blamed the Christians.
The Muslim mob attacked the church, exploding 5-6 gas cylinders inside the church, pulled down the cross and the domes and burnt everything inside. Activist Ramy Kamel of Katibatibia Coptic advocacy called US-based Coptic Hope Sat TV and sent an SOS on behalf of the Copts in Soul village, as they are presently being attacked by the mob. He also said that no one is able to contact the priest and the deacons inside the burning church and there is no answer from their mobile phones.
Coptic activist Wagih Yacoub reported the mob has broken into Coptic homes and has called on Copts to leave the village. "Terrorized Copts have fled and some hid in homes of Muslim neighbors," he added.
Witnesses said the mob chanted "Allahu Akbar" and vowed to conduct their morning prayers on the church plot after razing it.'
Not that there's any Islamic tradition of conducting prayers on the cherished sites of conquered peoples, or anything like that."
If you think that was the only incident of Christian persecution to be reported, you would be wrong. Travel south from Egypt and there's another similar story to relate, also from Jihad Watch:
Ethiopia: Muslims shouting "Allahu akbar" burn five churches
"After falsely accusing Christians of desecrating the Qur'an. Will the Islamophobia never end?
Note also that the government has done nothing -- in fact, only Christians, not Muslims, have been arrested.
'Developing: Ethiopian Muslims Burn Down Five Churches, More Attacks Feared,' from International Christian Concern, March 3 (thanks to Pamela Geller):
Washington, D.C. (March 3, 2011)–'International Christian Concern (ICC) has learned that in the past two days, thousands of Muslims have razed five churches and the homes of two evangelists in Asendabo, Ethiopia. Christian leaders are asking for protection after the Muslim attackers continued burning churches even after the federal police were sent to the town.
The Muslims started the attacks yesterday after falsely accusing the Christians of desecrating the Qur’an. More than ten thousand Muslims shouted “Allah Akbar” (Allah is great) as they burned down five evangelical churches. The government sent the federal police force to protect the Christians after the Muslims burned down the first three churches. The Muslims overwhelmed the police force and burned down two more churches today.
Speaking with ICC, Christian leaders expressed their fear that Muslims will start killing the Christians unless the government sends more security forces to contain the Muslim attackers.
At the time of the writing of this report, none of the Muslim attackers have been arrested. The government officials detained some Christians and took them to the nearby Jimma town stating that they need to do that for their own security....'"
