Why does the headline say: “…Christian-Muslim clashes…” instead of Christian-Islamists clashes, or Christian-radical Islamists?

So we have children painting stuff on a wall….and we have five people dead. That makes sense. No matter what the children were painting…is it worth a person’s life? Religious hatred and blind ignorance to the facts of life. God help us all.

It has nothing to do with religeon. You have a group of people, islam, SWORN to kill and destroy anyone that is not islam-and they are, and we (obama-an islam name) are GIVING them money to do it. Until we STOP playing around with these people and the whole liberal nicey-nicey “political correectness” approach to a group of people h— bent on total world dominance it is just going to get worse until the rest of us are dead. READ THE KORAN AND LOOK OUT YOUR WINDOW! TRUTH TRUTH TRUTH

“Christian-Muslim confrontations have increased in Muslim-majority Egypt since the overthrow of former President Hosni Mubarak in 2011 gave freer rein to hardline Islamists repressed under his rule.”

You forgot to add that this overthrow was supported by Obama, Biden, and Clinton.

This is specifically Muslims killing Christians; many Christians will die while one of two Muslims will be a casualty of this violence rampant in all Muslim nations. Reuters should put its news reporting in proper perspective.

So a Copt child draws a swastika and Ackmed SLAUGHTERS all of them. Burns their homes too. Reminds me of what that muslim SCUM did to the Jews that used to live there. They burned their homes, stole their land, confiscated all their belongings and murdered them while trying to emigrate out of Egypt. So many of you commenters ask why the Isrealis feel the way they do? Try wearing their shoes instead of preaching from your Ivory White Towers.

Muslims want to live like pigs.
They want their little “islamic” country, without Christians or Jews.

You would expect a country that relies so heavily on tourism to be populated with a people with intelligence.

I have yet to meet an intelligent muslim.

I still have a hard time dealing with the fact that they think it was perfectly natural for a 50 year old man to have relations with a 9 year old that he took as his upteenth wife when she was 6 years old and he was in his latter fourties. Pedophile, Polygamist, Warmonger, those words all describe the “prophet” that their religion is based on.

I know it’s hard to leave ones home, but these days non-Muslims should leave the country if they’re a minority and there is trouble. Let them kill each other – eventually Islam may turn into a peaceful religion/culture, but they’ve been killing each other for 1400 years (since Mohamed died and created Sunni/Shiite feud) so I wouldn’t wait around for it to change. The world will probably end before there is peace in Islam.

bobber1956 this is why we have to have a separate state and separate church. It allows us to have a Methodist, Protestant, Catholic, 7th Advent, Jehovah Witness, Baptist, Muslim, Hindu, etc., etc., all on the same street without killing each other in the name of God
You see there are no politics involved, I wonder can you grasp that.

It is so tragic that our media is so biased toward islamists.
In this article it is marginalized that 4/5 that died are christians.
The pictures shown are only of damaged assests of muslims in a way to portray the muslims as the victims. How could they be the victims if they are the majority and they only lost 1/5 lives.

Whenever egyptians government in trouble or wants to sway attention away they fabricate a case involving cuptics. In this case it is very vague how this clash started. It is most probably the creation of ministry of interior as always done.

I am living in Myanmar not (Burmese or Buddhist)and read Egyptian and Pakistani news daily calling for UN intervention in the killing of Islamists in Myanmar, however those identical sources are not calling on UN intervention in this instance???? Sharia law has no requirement for religious tolerance for opposing views, and obviously believes it can apply a different set of rules for themselves.

The nut reach which today proselytizes that it is the current political administration which is to take credit for the over due political tsunami , This after forty years of Mubarak’s military backed dictatorship . Sigh .
That is the trouble with nut reachers , and repression , along with control issues and the pent up emotion , little of it makes any workable sense .
The finger pointers are so weak that they actually arouse a sense of pity , after one deals with the disgust .

Muslims cannot live in peace with anyone not of Muslim faith. They do not belong in any countries that are not 100% Muslim. In fact, they cannot even live in peace with each other. This has been their way since their founding. Muslims should be segregated to liveonly in Muslim countries. Anyone of another faith is on their own in their midst. All free ountries should banish any of the Muslim faith.

Obama’s enduring legacy will be rolling four different Middle Eastern countries over to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Think these were organic revolutions by the will of the people? Then why did we run 21,242 bombing missions in Libya?

Think these were about human rights? Tell that to the 18 women gang-raped in Tahir Square on January 25, 2013… the same day Obama gave Egypt $100 billion.

Think Christians or Jews have more rights? Read the story above… CHILDREN were drawing on a wall and they were beaten and shot.

If Obama is not the Muslim Manchurian Candidate, he is definitely the next best thing.

Man you can’t really be that dumb, can you? Bush & Halliburton are the reason Muslims kill non believers? I didn’t know Bush and Halliburton were around during the Mohamed years. Seriously, are you 13 years old or something?

Not to worry, the US president already has a plan to fix it. Once he finishes his golf round … he will send another $250M to Egypt … then all will be well, until tomorrow when he has to send another $250M over the phone from his vacation. It’s all good.

I’m betting that this is a slanted headline. I’m betting that the Coptic Christians were, as they have constantly been, attacked and killed by the Muslims in their Jihad to subjugate or slay the “infidels”. If a Muslim was killed in this attack, I’m betting it was in self defence. ‘just sayin’
