France 24 reported, via ROP:

Gunmen opened fire on the home of a Coptic Christian in the Sinai peninsula on Saturday, hours after a visit by President Mohamed Morsi to reassure Christian residents they would not be targeted again.

Gunmen “used automatic weapons when they opened fire on the house of a Coptic resident of Rafah hours after the president left,” a security official told AFP.

There were no reports of casualties, he said.

Witnesses told AFP three gunmen in a car fired on the house of Magdi Niruz before fleeing the scene.

Morsi had visited the Sinai peninsula on Friday to meet with and reassure families who fled Rafah to El-Arish after receiving death threats.

This “will not happen again,” Morsi told a group of local Bedouin tribal chiefs and other residents of El-Arish.

“Your security is our security,” he said.

    Let me be clear, I have been to Pakistan. I have been to mosques. I have prayed to Allah and put my butt in the air; my head in the ground and I know Taqiyya! I use it all the time!

    My good friend Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood practices his Taqiyya with confidence. Not many Christians can say the same!

    What’s a few more dead Christians? They are just bumps in the road to a 100% Muslim Middle East!

    I say give this Mohamed guy another $450,000,000.00! If you like the way I pit Muslims against Christians then vote for me. I need the Muslim vote!

    And, this is ultra important! Send me $36.666.00 before midnight. My Muslim voters are getting restless. Good day.

    Does this article include a translation of what Morsi has been saying in the local language, or just in english?
