See Washington Post Article on 'Anti-Christian Drumbeat' in Egypt:
Seems as if al-Qaida is training their followers on how to 'destroy the cross' via a series of bomb-making videos, and also bomb-making manuals. These have been apppearing on various websites.
Jihad is being encouraged against Egypt's Christians, because Christians have humiliated the Muslims.
"In September, one Salafi cleric, Ahmed Farid, wept as he told worshippers at an Alexandria mosque that Muslims were being "humiliated" by Christians, chiding them for "giving up jihad." "
The calls are for an escalation of violence towards Christians in Egypt.
I'm surprised it made the news in the Washington Post. Christians are being killed and persecuted in many Muslim-majority countries and there isn't much talk of it except in the Christian Press.
