This report documents: 1) the activities of the Supreme Military Council of Egypt and its de facto ruler; 2) the lies and duplicitous tactics of both the Military Council and its media mouthpiece, Egyptian TV; and 3) the anti-Christian sentiment pervading all aspects of this incident. The Egyptian Military Armored vehicles intentionally chased after and ran over protesters, killing and mutilating many: Anti-Christian Hate Soldiers screamed "Allahu Akbar!
