Dalga, Egypt Torched By Muslims, Christians Threatened With Death

Dalga, Egypt – Muslims favoring Morsi took over the town of Dalga in Egypt after ex-President Mohammed Morsi was removed from power.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Egypt ousted Mohammed Morsi with the help of the military, an action that was popular with the majority of the Egyptian people.

Mohammed Morsi will stand trial for “incitement to murder” and President Obama is considering cutting aid to Egypt. The aftermath of the Morsi coup was felt throughout the country, with many instances of violence.

Dalga is a town in the southern regions of Egypt that suffered the wrath of Morsi supporters who were angry with what happened. Dalga is a town of 120,000 people, with the Dalga Christian population numbering about 120,000.

All of the Christian neighborhoods have been attacked by Muslim bandits. All of the churches have been looted and some have been burned. A Coptic Orthodox priest named Father Yoannis remembers how an ancient 1,600 year old monastery was burned down:

“The fire in the monastery burned intermittently for three days. The looting continued for a week. At the end, not a wire or an electric switch is left. Even the remains of ancient and revered saints were disturbed and thrown around.”

Apparently, the people attacking Dalga, Egypt believe there was buried treasure hidden in the ground.

In Egypt Christian persecution has only been growing. The 40 Christian-owned businesses in Dalga, Egypt have all been destroyed and the families are being forced to flee for their lives. The army has twice attempted to intervene but showers of gunfire have kept them at bay. While the Christians do not firearms even if they did they say they wouldn’t use them since they would consider it murder.
