Who would've guessed?
This is what the media euphemistically calls "sectarian clashes(read unprovoked attacks on Christians.)"
Not sure that anyone should be surprised.
Strongmen dictators are the rule in the ME for a good cultural reasons.
There is an important lesson to be learned from what is happening to the Coptic Christians in Egypt and the Caldeans in Iraq. As soon as they are freed from dictatorship the muslims will turn on their Christian neighbors and slaughter them. This is why the west needs to contain them on their own land and prevent them from invading our land.
I am all for cutting relationship with this horrible retarded part of the world but you have to live under a rock to see that they are already here and that it is too late.
