A lot has been made about the bombings in Cairo, and for good reason, Coptics are some of the oldest religious inhabitants of the region. So imporatant, in fact, that they might even make up about 10 percent of the population. Under Islamic Law, they are dhimmi, meaning that they pay for, and are protected against persecution under Islamic Law.
Something happened the other day, that is not in cahoots with what the Koran dictates to its followers. After paying for, and observing all of the rights granted as a dhimmi, the Coptics were bombed during a mass. Shameful, to say the least. However, one must be reminded that even Islamist a code of conduct. One that demands observers to follow the rules. Muslims would be quick to point out in the Koran that everyone is treated equally, and even protected, under Islamic rule. One might even point out that something like Taquiyya is meant to only be used in a life threatening situation.
In this case, the shameful act seems to work against even the rules in place. How this happens is a study in hypocracy. It happens for no other reason than it can. It’s a political boon with hardline politicos in the region, is at the very least tacitly supported by the public, and was targetted for what is (IMO) no other reason than someone could.
Even though the Koran condemns this, one must wonder why it happened. Exactly why was a moral code, written in scripture broken here to advocate such violence in the name of a religion? Is the word the word, the legal system honest, and the people sincerere? I mean, from all that I’m told, there is no justifiable reason to bomb and kill a religious group on one of their holiest of days. Questions abound.
