Christians gathered in Cairo on Sunday to protest the destruction of a church that was attacked by Muslim villagers this weekend in Egypt's Fayoum Province. It was the second attack on Christians in the province in a little over a month.
Please note at the end of the video, there is a plaque on the wall that designates King Solomon as the first 'biblical' Freemason! In case you are unaware, the Freemmason's are Satan Worshipers, and identified with the Illuminati (secret, government agencies.) I do not believe such a thing about King Solomon, and certainly hope you do not either.

Close to half--47 percent--said they were affected “somewhat negatively,” but one-third said they were not affected at all.
A Pakistan court last month surprised all involved when it dismissed charges of blasphemy against a Christian man accused of insulting Islam.
The Jan. 28 ruling by a trial court in Punjab province surprised defendant Barkat Masih, his attorney and religious-rights advocates. It came two months after a different judge threw out similar charges against a teen-aged girl that drew worldwide criticism of Pakistan’s anti-blasphemy laws.
