Recently I had a post about a Coptic Christian family that was slaughtered in their own home and the possibility that this massacre might have been religiously motivated. Jihad Watch has a bunch of posts on this matter, including a press release from the American Coptic Union, indication that the family faced a vendetta in the past, and some insider information. Take them for what they are. There are obvious ways to discredit these reports, but I do find them interesting.
Jihad Watch has much more on the slayings too. I still think the specter of bigotry and the fears of being perceived as anti-Islamic is going to discourage both news coverage and entertaining the very real possibility that this is Jihad in our own land. Just imagine if this was a family of Muslims who had their throats slit, religious symbols on the body mutilated, received death threats from some crazy Klans men, and nothing taken from their home. What’s the obvious conclusion everybody would draw?
