St. Gergis: Student Stabs Nun

A young man shouted "God is Great" when he burst into St. Gergis church in Alexandria and stabbed a nun and a man today. The police arrested the attacker and said the injuries he had caused were not serious. - this is just out from Reuters.

Last week, the church was put under siege by thousands of Muslims. Coptic christians in the neighborhoud fled the area in fear. Read my previous post Alexandria on Sectarian Fire.

When leaders of the Muslim community demonstrated and called for attacks on Christians outside the mosque last week, they legitimized aggressive behavior. When you do that, younger hot-heads will always interpret it as a thumbs up for more serious action.

There is only one God and this is not what he wanted, no matter if you are Muslim or Christian.
