Egyptian police say killing of Muslim by Christian sparks sectarian clash in southern Egypt


Associated Press

CAIRO — Police say that a Muslim has been killed by a Christian in southern Egypt, sparking a sectarian clash, and the military has intervened to stop the violence.

The incident is not connected to the start of Egypt’s first parliamentary elections since the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak nine months ago.

The director of security for the province of Sohag, Gen. Abdel al-Aziz al-Nahas, said the village of al-Ghureizat was under a police and army cordon Monday night following the death of a Muslim earlier in a fight with his neighbor. The conflict was about the building of a wall.

Muslim villagers set fire to houses of Christians in a cycle of revenge that is common in Egypt’s south.

    Divide and conquer tactics.Only Israel benefits from this considering Israel has plans for retaking the Sinai.Mostl likely the objective is to stir up infighting amongst the Egyptians while the Israelis steal the peninsula leaving the Egyptians no time to create an effective defense or counter attack.

    Round up every Jew in Egypt and put them in Jail to face trial after a Government is formed. We did not have this problem until the Jews moved in next door.

    Israel has to leave the Region and the Jews must never again be allowed back into this region or into a region where it has no place.
