To protect a precious archaeological area that stretches around a church dating back to the fourth century AD, a group of Coptic monks from the Monastery of Saint Macarius have staged a resistance to a road-building project, going so far as to lie down in front of approaching bulldozers.The Egyptian government is moving forward on a project to build a road connecting the city of Fayoum to an oasis area, passing through the territory around the ancient Coptic Monastery of St. Macarius, home to dozens of monks. The project also threatens the water supply of the monastery and some cultivated areas belonging to it.
Is that what they teach you at the temple volnutt-stein?
Rome doesn't care. Rome is actually very cool guy.
God willing, I hope they do not destroy the ancient site.
I'm not sure how I feel about this. They're certainly more courageus men than I'll ever be. But public transit is very important and I'm sure the Egyptian government has cleared the site with archaeologists...
I'm with scam on this.

I order you and all your subjects to be baptized. If you refuse, I'll have you killed on the spot and I swear I will ravage every island with fire and steel.
It's my understanding that the monks had offered an alternate route up which was ignored.
