Mosque To Be Demolished For Lack Of Building Permit
Can't find the paperwork:

Jerusalem – Ma'an – The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Sheikh Muhammad Hussein has condemned a decision by Israeli authorities to demolish the Al-Omari mosque in the village of Umm Tuba near Jerusalem under the pretext that the building had been built without a license on Sunday.
Sheikh Hussein told Ma'an that the mosque was built more than 700 years go, and it was last restored in 1963. It is the only mosque in Umm Tuba.

The Mufti claimed that Israeli authorities have been attempting to wipe out historic Islamic sites in Palestine which is violation of all religious values and international treaties.

He warned of the repercussions and called on the United Nations Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) which is charged with protecting human cultural heritage around the world, and other international organizations to prevent the demolition of the mosque. [link to www.maannews.net]

Egypt arrests 13 Christians

AFP - Cairo, December 19th, 2007

Egyptian authorities have arrested 13 Christians for collecting donations to rebuild a church without a valid permit, their lawyer said.

"They were arrested on Monday and now face the charge of collecting donations without a permit," Hani Hanna Soliman told AFP.

The group, who work in a church in the southern city of Assiut, had been collecting money to rebuild a church in the town of Saqulta further south.

They raised suspicion in Saqulta when they asked a local resident where the nearest church was. The resident called police fearing a possible terrorist attack on a church, Soliman said.

Security services rushed to the scene, arrested the eight men and five women and deployed troops around the local churches.

After hours of investigation, the 13 were cleared of any terror related charges but were kept in detention for collecting donations without a valid permit, Soliman said.

Authorities are on high alert for any irregular activity around churches for fear of sectarian clashes.

On Sunday, seven Muslims were detained in Isna in southern Egypt after setting fire to a church and shops owned by Christians in retaliation for the alleged rape of a Muslim girl.

Egypt Christians account for an estimated six to 10 percent of the country’s 76 million inhabitants and complain of systematic discrimination and harassment.

Restrictions on building churches have been one of the main grievances of the community.

In December 2005, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak issued a presidential decree easing the severe restrictions on repairing and rebuilding churches in Egypt.
