Some Christians Can Be Killed- Says Egyptian Politician

Some Egyptian Christians can be killed, so says Mohamed Abu Samra, the secretary-general of the Islamic Jihad Party.

"Those who came out with weapons, their blood is allowed for us [to spill], as a fighter is not considered dhimmi."
Dhimma, for those who might not know, is the Muslim law that provides protection for non-Muslims in Muslim lands as long as they pay the jizya (tax). If you don't, I guess you're on your own.

He laid out the  reasons why it's perfectly justifiable to  kill some Christians, during  an interview with Al-Watan newspaper:

"In the recent funeral, the Christians brought the Qur'an and urinated on it. The Sheikh of Al-Azhar did not deny it. They also came out in demonstrations to destroy Muslim places, chanting 'We'll bring Islam down by any means possible.

"Jihad gagged the new pope, as we told him in a statement 'your seclusion will not terrorize us.' If you want civil war, we will welcome it as you were the ones who started it."

"I believe that Pope Tawadros is more dangerous than Shenouda, because the former considers using force as he is trying to establish a Coptic state. He considers the arrival of the Islamists an opportunity to declare civil war. " "I believe that offering concessions to this person will make him continue on the path, which he charted, but the end will not be as he expects. Egypt is not like Lebanon or Southeast Asia, and national unity is a fact [here]."

"What Tawadros is doing is a far cry from what the Coptic people want."
