The Muslims fired guns and threw firebombs at Christian homes, businesses, and churches. The issue once again was a rumor that the Copts were holding captive a woman they believed had converted to Islam. The woman was alleged to be held against her will in a church.

Re new passport:
Of course this is being put forward using the illegal aliens and the nature of Barry Soetoro's citizenship as a backdrop; and as an argument against those who protest. The vague hint of denial of other government services - it's there sitting quietly in the background - means TPTB will be able to deny such to true citizens who cannot provide the selectively demanded information. This wilj never apply to the favored populations.

One wonders if this will become part of the "Do Not Fly" list or Chuckle Head Schumer's new "Do not Ride" list for trains.
