CCTV camera captured an Egyptian Christian bishop being slaughtered by a Muslim in broad daylight. The Muslim man puled out a large knife and stabbed the bishop repeatedly in the torso and the neck, then drew crosses on himself with the bishop’s blood before fleeing but was later caught and arrested according to a recent report:
Stabbed in the neck and torso near the Virgin and Bishop Shenouda El Daeiry church, the wounded Shehata fled on foot into the warehouse, according to security camera footage obtained by El Youm el Sabe News agency, which shows the assailant following with the machete.
Police said eyewitnesses reported that the assailant had seen Shehata in his car, forcibly stopped him, ordered him out and then started to stab him in the neck and torso. Shehata fled, and the attacker followed him into the warehouse and finished his attack there with several blows to the head, they said.
Unsurprisingly, liberal Jews have responded with weakness and confusion. Days before the Women’s March, The Forwardpublished an op-ed literally titled, “Why Jewish Feminism Should Embrace, Not Fear, Intersectionality.” The Anti-Defamation League, having written glowingly of intersectionality and the Women’s March on its official blog, appears not to have any response at all. Benjamin Gladstone, like any true believer, argued in Tablet magazine that the fault lies not with intersectionality, but with flawed intersectionalists.
Intersectionality, however, isn’t about fairness or rights. It’s about group power. Intersectionality promotes group rights based on group grievances. It’s a tool for dividing our country by focusing on our differences rather than on our commonalities. It inevitably turns politics into a hate-fueled group shoving match, and we’re always the smallest group in the room.
One month after Islamic militants bombed two Egyptian churches during Palm Sunday and killed nearly 50 people in April 2017, several SUVs, on May 26, stopped two buses transporting dozens of Christians to the ancient Coptic Monastery of St. Samuel the Confessor in the desert south of Cairo. According to initial reports, approximately ten Islamic militants, heavily armed and dressed in military fatigues, "demanded that the passengers recite the Muslim profession of faith" — which is tantamount to converting to Islam. When they refused, the jihadis opened fire on them, killing 29 Christians, at least ten of whom were young children. Two girls were aged 2 and 4. Also killed was Mohsen Morkous, an American citizen described as "a simple man" whom "everyone loved," his two sons, and his two grandsons.
According to eyewitness accounts, the terrorists ordered the passengers to exit the bus in groups:
"As each pilgrim came off the bus they were asked to renounce their Christian faith and profess belief in Islam, but all of them—even the children—refused. Each was killed in cold blood with a gunshot to the head or the throat.
"By the time they killed half of the people, the terrorists saw cars coming in the distance and we think that that is what saved the rest," said one source. "They did not have time to kill them all. They just shot at them randomly and then fled."
According to another report:
"The dead and dying lay in the desert sand amid Islamic leaflets left by the assailants extoling the virtues of fasting during Ramadan and forgiveness granted to those who abstain from eating during the Islamic ritual. Ramadan ... is often seen as the worst time for persecution of Christians who live in the Middle East."
A video of the immediate aftermath "showed at least four or five bodies of adult men lying on the desert sand next to the bus; women and other men screamed and cried as they stood or squatted next to the bodies." According to a man who spoke to hospitalized relatives, "authorities took somewhere from two to three hours to arrive at the scene." The man "questioned whether his uncle and others might have lived had the response been quicker."
The video journalist who rocked the nation with his shocking recordings of Planned Parenthood officials allegedly involved in the sale of aborted baby body parts for profit, says he refuses to back down despite numerous attempts by the “abortion empire” to criminalize his work.
San Francisco U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick III has prohibited Daleiden from releasing any further videos exposing the abortion provider’s alleged involvement in the fetal tissue procurement business.
In September, Orrick fined Daleiden and his attorneys $200,000 for contempt of his order when they published online video footage of abortionists at National Abortion Federation (NAF) trade shows. The footage showed abortionists joking about their work, discussing “the head that gets stuck that we can’t get out” and saying that “an eyeball just fell down into my lap, and that is gross!”
