Christians in Abu-Almatamir expressed their anger because what happened to them on August 25th, 2012. More than 2,000 people from the hard-line Islamists demolished a house in the village of Sheikh Qasim in Abu-Almatamir, Alexandria. Muslims assumed the building will be converted to a church. Over 2000 militant Islamists they used bulldozers after evening prayers on the 25th of August. It is very interesting to know the village has two Christian families among a population of 10,000.
