A bomb killed at least 21 people outside a church in the Egyptian city of Alexandria early on New Year's Day and the Interior Ministry said a foreign-backed suicide bomber may have been responsible.
Dozens of people were wounded by the blast, which scattered body parts, destroyed cars and smashed windows. The attack prompted Christians to protest on the streets, and some Christians and Muslims hurled stones at each other. (emphasis added)
So, a bomb just passively detonated on its own, and decided to scatter body parts. Then, the Christians elected to commence a pogrom against the poor innocent Muslims. Unbelievable! Folks, you can't make this stuff up.
Here was Obama's response:
"Killing innocent civilians who were simply gathering – like so many people around the world – to celebrate the beginning of a New Year further demonstrates the bankrupt vision of those who carry out these attacks, and we are similarly prepared to offer assistance to the Government of Nigeria as it works to bring the perpetrators to justice." (emphasis added)
Isn't it interesting how there is random violence around the world in Nigeria, Egypt, Sudan, Israel, Lebanon, and Somalia. They are orchestrated by unknown perpetrators. The fact that they all share the same religion has nothing to do with it!
There is another important point that this weekend's bombing bring to bear. We provide Egypt with over $1.5 billion in foreign aid every year. They have always straddled the fence between their ambivalence towards radical Islam and their desire to pander for American support. If they don't use this tragedy as an opportunity to clamp down on terror, we should immediately cut off their foreign aid. Why should we be funding another Muslim nation that harbors Al Qaeda?
