Egyptian Muslims Attack Christian Church, at Least 12 Reported Dead

Stacy McCain at The Other McCain has this:

Ah, the glorious “Arab spring”!

Egypt’s prime minister called for an emergency Cabinet meeting Sunday, a day after officials reported at least 12 people were killed in sectarian clashes outside a Cairo church.
Officials said the violence began over rumors that a Christian woman who converted to Islam was being held at the church against her will. . . .
Egyptian state TV said 10 people died and 232 were wounded in the violence Saturday. At least 190 were arrested. . . .
During clashes on Saturday, witnesses said an armed group of Muslims marched on Saint Mena Coptic Orthodox Church, one of the oldest churches in Egypt.
Witnesses said Muslims and Christians exchanged gunfire, sending people running for cover.
“With my own eyes I saw three people killed and dozens injured,” said Mina Adel, a Christian resident. “There’s no security here. There’s a big problem. People attacked us, and we have to protect ourselves.”

But it is just the Religion of Peacetm , isn’t it?
