Lest We Forget, Part XX

Church Attacks Rising in Ethiopia ... quote ...
After acquiring land where they could build a house of worship, local Christians in the Ethiopian town of Yebu faced heavy opposition. Numerous times, local Muslims had warned the Christians that if they did not stop evangelizing, they would be attacked.

As a result, Christians decided to postpone the construction of their church until midnight on July 2, 2006.

The very next day, on July 3rd, a militant Muslim mob carried out their threat after the project was underway. The mob waylaid workers and demolished the entire building, stealing the materials to build their own structure.
