It's more difficult to attack Iraqi Churches

so AQI attacks Iraqi Christians in their homes.

'Al Qaeda in Iraq is targeting Christians in their homes after Iraqi authorities increased protection around the minority group's churches, a U.S. commander said on Thursday.

Lieutenant General Robert Cone, the U.S. deputy commanding general for operations in Iraq, said the Sunni Islamist group seemed determined to continue attacks against Christians following a siege of a Catholic cathedral two months ago.

"Al Qaeda has shifted to try and go after the Christians where they live," Cone told Reuters in an interview.'

I think they issued a warning that the Christians in Egypt should release the prisoners they are holding.

Yeah, the plight of two Christian women unable to leave their home just tugs at jihadi heartstrings.

Meanwhile, Somali women who leave home without a male relative are beaten. A woman who shakes hands with a male non-relative can be executed. They can't even wear traditional Somali clothing without a muj doing jihad on them.

A pity there aren't any Christians or Shia to pick on in Somalia. That means Sunni women and children get to feel what it's like to be on the other end of a jihad.
