So let those fight in the name of Allah ...
Bukhari Book 46, No. 694 'I asked the Prophet, "What is the best deed?" He replied, "To believe in Allah and to fight for His Cause." ...' Book 52, No. 50, 51 53 "... except the MARTYR who, on seeing the SUPERIORITY OF MARYRDOM, would like to come back to the world and get killed again (in Allah's Cause)." No. 72 "... Whoever amongst us is KILLED (as a MARTYR, "Mujahid") WILL GO TO PARADISE"
9:111 "slay and are slain" for promised paradise "... that is the achievement supreme."
... which fulfills 9:5 + 9:29
Consider some facts: St. Mark Cathedral—named after the author of
the Gospel of the same name who brought Christianity to Egypt some 600
years before Amr bin al-As brought Islam by the sword—is not simply
“just another” Coptic church to be attacked and/or set aflame by a
Muslim mob (see my forthcoming book, Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians,
for a comprehensive idea of past and present Muslim attacks on Coptic
churches). Instead, it is considered the most sacred building for
millions of Christians around the world—above and beyond the many
millions of Copts in and out of Egypt. As the only apostolic see in the
entire continent of Africa, its significance and evangelizing mission
extends to the whole continent, including nations such as Sudan,
Ethiopia, Libya, Tunisia, Morocco, and Algeria, to name just a few. As
an apostolic see—the actual seat of an apostle of Christ—the cathedral
further possesses historical significance for Christianity in general.
In short, Muslim mobs—aided and abetted by the state of Egypt under
Muslim Brotherhood tutelage—did not merely attack yet one more Coptic
church, but rather committed an act of war against all Christianity.
Such an open attack on a Christian center which holds symbolic and
historic significance for all.
