Egyptian church clash injures 12
At least 12 people were injured in clashes in Upper Egypt when a group of Muslims attempted to stop Christians converting a house into a church.
Security officials said the Muslims set fire to building materials for the building in Odaysat, near Luxor.

Several members of both communities were reported injured in the subsequent clashes, as well as two policemen.

It is the latest in a series of violent sectarian incidents in Egypt in the past few months.

A security source quoted by Reuters said the Christians did not have official permission to build the church.

Police arrested 10 young men and the owners of the house, reports say.

Correspondents say curbs on building churches have been one of the main grievances among Copts, although these restrictions have been eased recently by presidential decree.

The Coptic Christian community is believed to make up 10% percent of Egypt's population of about 70 million.

Every time something like this happens, you hope and pray it is the last. When will it end?? When has it become so acceptable for the people to take the law into their hands and burn others property over a permit?

Like a bunch of villagers in Upper Egypt care about permits!!! Please!

Truth is they don't want the Christians in the village to have a place to worship. As if that would somehow weaken their faith!! It is absolutely confusing sometimes, how Muslims are determined to wipe away all other faiths and ideologies by force. Why not just live and let live?

Matthew 10:28-30
28Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. 29Are not two sparrows sold for a penny[d]? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. 30And even the very hairs of your head are all

ولا تخافوا من الذين يقتلون الجسد ولكن النفس لا يقدرون ان يقتلوها .بل خافوا بالحري من الذي يقدر ان يهلك النفس والجسد كليهما في جهنم .

29 أليس عصفوران يباعان بفلس .وواحد منهما لا يسقط على الارض بدون ابيكم .

30 واما انتم فحتى شعور رؤوسكم جميعها محصاة .
