Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugs links to sites with a tally on destroyed or severely damaged Coptic churches and places of worship in Egypt. It's not clear to me whether the following list is just the daily tally or whether a resume of attacks in the past days or even weeks. This is Coptic World, and here is Nile Revolt, with the former essentially copying the list of the latter.

What IS clear however, is that at this very moment Egypt's Coptic Christians are even more under attack than usual - and NATURALLY our MSM is turning a blind eye on it. In Belgium, as so often, De Standaard, Het Laatste Nieuws et al remain completely mute on the subject while on the other hand reporting extensively on the authorization the Israeli government gave last week to build 1,200 new houses in Judea and Samaria.

Why can't they simply have objective articles on the subject like this one at Fox News?
