Sectarianism: Post-Sit-in Dispersal

This post is dedicated to tracking the most recent wave of sectarian attacks across Egypt. The format has recently changed due to the sheer volume of data. Currently, everything is in a DATABASE instead of list format. If the database is not opening please contact us. The original format is saved, for those who need it for blog purposes, please contact us.

The blog was started and is managed by Mai El-SadanyAmir Beshay, and myself, Amira Mikhail. A sincere thanks goes to @Sleipne and Catie Burleson for the database development, and to Mina Fayek for contributing a lot of time to assist in the aggregation of information.

Please note that this is a work-in-progress and is being updated on a regular basis. Information so far is unverified although most is backed up with tweets and photos. We are hoping to continue the efforts to verify details. If you have any corrections or updates to church names, photos, or details, please reach out to am.mikhail@gmail.com or my twitter.

A similar project is Into Oblivion by @moftasa and @MaliciaRogue.

To date we have recorded 132 attacks, 8 deaths, and a handful of cases of abuse, injuries, and kidnappings. Below are resources and statistics that may be of use. The list of churches and institutions is listed here.

  5. Any proof that this was MB and not just framing?

    1. Rady, Hard to know for sure and as you can see, I did not place blame on anyone. However, the rhetoric the MB have used on Raba’a stage and their general media campaigns, has been sectarian against Christians and others…and there is also a very clear correlation (not necessarily cause and effect) with the dispersal and the attacks.

  24. I’m An Egyptian Muslim ….and I STRONGLY CONDEMN BURNING CHURCHES ….I also support The Muslim Brotherhood …..

    1. Ahmed, I was delighted to read your comment. While I have strong feelings against the MB, because I feel that they have two faces, I thank God for Muslims who speak out against this violence– many American Muslims openly condemn it as well. It takes courage to stand up and say what you said and I applaud that. As a Muslim who feels this way, you are in a powerful position to effect positive change in your country because you are in the majority, but have empathy for those in the minority. I hope that God uses you to reach out to victims of this violence, whoever they may be, and show them love. I believe He has a call on your life and can use your perspective for good. Who knows? He might even use you to save lives.

  28. […] (CNN) — As violence again scars Egypt, Christians in the country believe they’re being targeted amidst the chaos following a government crackdown on Muslim Brotherhood protest camps in Cairo.There have been dozens of attacks on Christian churches, homes and businesses in the past 24 hours. Full details of the attacks are still emerging, as the country reels from its bloodiest day in recent history.Bishop Angaelos, the Cairo-born head of the Coptic Orthodox Church in the United Kingdom, said he was told by colleagues in Egypt that 52 churches had been attacked in the space of 24 hours beginning Wednesday, as well as numerous Christian homes and businesses across the country.Ishak Ibrahim, a researcher with the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights, told CNN he had confirmed attacks on at least 30 churches so far, in addition to the targeting of church-related facilities, including schools and cultural centers.Christians targeted in EgyptObama on Egypt: Violence needs to stopEmam mosque becomes temporary morgueSaint George Church in Sohag, a city south of Cairo on the Nile River, was among those reportedly set ablaze Wednesday.It’s not yet clear who’s responsible for the violence directed toward Egypt’s Orthodox Christians — described by Angaelos as unprecedented in contemporary history — but Muslim Brotherhood supporters are being blamed by some.At least 84 people, including Muslim Brotherhood members, have been referred to military prosecutors for charges including murder and the burning of churches, the state-run EGYNews site reported Thursday.At least 525 people have died and more than 3,700 were injured as security forces clashed with supporters of ousted President Mohamed Morsy.‘A very dangerous game to play’Egypt has much to deal with in the aftermath of the latest violence, with so many Egyptian lives sadly lost, said Angaelos.But he hopes that the attacks on Christian properties will, once the situation calms, be properly investigated by police — not least because their sheer scale suggests a degree of orchestration, rather than sporadic unrest.”We would want the people who have done it to be brought to justice because I think they are trying to do something which is much more dangerous,” he said.”It’s not just about burning churches, it’s about burning churches to initiate a response that then spirals into even greater violence — and that is a very, very dangerous game to play.”The targeting of churches and Christian properties was not unexpected as tensions erupted in Cairo, Angaelos said, given the escalation of attacks on Coptic Christians in recent weeks.This threat had led him last week to issue a statement warning of “a very real risk upon the life of every Christian.” Pope Tawadros II, the church’s leader in Egypt, had also suspended weekly public events for fear of attacks on Christian congregations.State of emergencyBloody battle in CairoViolence in Egypt spreads to AlexandriaBut despite the warning signs, Angaelos said, “the ferocity and the speed with which it all happened… was quite surprising.”Burning of booksDalia Ziada, of the Ibn Khadun Center for Development Studies, told CNN Thursday morning that the center had documented the burning of 29 churches and Coptic facilities across Egypt.”This is horrible to happen in only one day,” she said.A Bible Society of Egypt statement posted online Wednesday reported the “complete burning and destruction” of its bookshops in the cities of Assiut and Minia, in southern Egypt.”Fortunately we were closed today, fearing such an attack, so none of our staff were injured,” said the statement by Ramez Atallah, the society’s general director. “The attackers demolished the metal doors protecting the bookshops, broke the store windows behind them and set the bookshops on fire.”Other stores and parked cars on those streets were also destroyed, he wrote.”It is important to underline that — while some Christian properties have been the victim of this violence — they are by no means the only ones targeted,” Atallah said.”This is an attack against the state by a violent minority in an attempt to destabilize the nation.”CNN iReporter Amir Beshay, from Cairo, helped draw up a list of Christian churches and properties reportedly targeted.

    أدان الناشط الحقوقي والسياسي المصري جرجس بشرى الخطاب الذي وجهه الرئيس الأمريكي باراك حسين أوباما

    بشأن الأوضاع في مصر ،
    Gergis Boushra, the Egyptian human rights and politicial activist condmens the message delivered by President Barak Obaama on the ongoing incidents in Egypt now.
    واعتبره تدخلا في الشأن المصري الداخلي وتحديا سافرا لإرادة جموع المصريين الذين فوضوا السلطات المصرية للمحاربة الإرهاب وجماعات الإخوان المسلمين الإرهابية المسلحة التي تدعمها إدارة باراك اوباما بالسلاح والمال والآلة الإعلامية
    Boushra considered this message as an intervention in the internal affairs of Egypt and an unwise challenge to the will of the Egyptians mass who authorized the Egyptian state to fight terrorism and the terrorist armed Muslim Brotherhood Group supported along by Obama’s administration with arms and finances and also the media machine.
    ورفض بشرى اتهام الحكومة المصرية باستخدام العنف في فض تظاهرات الاخوان ، متجاخلا إرهاب الجماعة للشعب المصري وحرق مؤسساته ومقرات اقسام الشرطة والكنائس وقتل ميليشيات الرئيس المعزول محمد مرسي وجماعته المصريين ،
    Boushra refused the accusation to the Egyptian cabinet for using violence to disperse the Ikhwan sits-in demonstrators ignoring the terrorism practised by the MB group on the Egyptians, burning the states’ foundations, police stations, Christians’ Churches and the killing practised by the MB group militias on the innocent unarmed Egyptians.
    وحمل بشرى اوباما شخصبا المسئولية كاملة عما حدث في مصر من حرق وتدمير للمنشآت والكنائس وترويع للمواطنين على يد انصار الرئيس المعزول الذين حملوا السلاح في مواجهة المصريين وبأوامر امريكية ،
    Boushra sets Obama fully responsible for the ongoing violence in Egypt, burning and demolishing foundations, Churches, terrifying humble innocent citizens, by the pro Mursi supporters armed with weapons to fight the Egyptians but with commands from U.S.A.
    مؤكدا ان الحملة تسعى حاليا في إجراءات مقاضاة اوباما دوليا أمام المحكمة الجنائية الدولية بتهمة دعم الإرهاب والجماعات المسلحة في مصر ودول ثورات الربيع العربي وارتكاب جرائم حرب في هذه الدول لا تسقط بالتقادم
    Boushra confirms that the Campaign against Obama seeks to file a case against him front of the International Criminal Court with charges of supporting terrorism and the armed militias in Egypt and the Arab spring countries, as committing such crimes in these countries doesn’t end by the limitation status codes of law

A chi giova la situazione terribile in cui vivono Siria e Egitto? Quanto i governi si adoperano per cercare soluzioni di pace in Medio Oriente?

  80. I seem to remember hearing about churches being attacked BEFORE the troops dispersed the sit ins . . . if dates could be put on the above events, it would leave no doubt as to whether these actions caused the police action, or were in retaliation. In any case, retaliation should be aimed at the authorities, not third parties.
