Egypt: TV Host suspended after stating that its ok to attack Christians ,but not Muslims

(Cario)  Eyptian TV channel Sada al-Balad has suspended TV host Rasha Magdi  hours after the mosque attack last Friday which claimed over 300 lives when she stated that it is OK to attack ‘Christians’.
“We saw attacks by terrorists on the police and army, and we said this is mutual violence. These extremist groups have attacked churches and we said that they think it is a [different] religion, not Islam, and it is hostile to them, and then we said it is okay, but how [can these groups attack] Muslims?,”
She has since been suspended and is now awaiting an internal investigation on her conduct. Funny enough this isn’t the first time Magdi has been caught peddling hate speech towards non-Muslims when she worked for the state television network, several legal cases were filed against her for inciting hatred against Egypt’s Copic Christians, particularly regarding the killing by the Egyptian army of more than 25 Christians during what has become known as the Maspero massacre.
