A very informative video by Dr.David Duke , it's a shame most Americans don't know about these attacks.

"It is obvious that Jews patronize the Jews and Christians patronize the Christians , so why not Muslims patronize Muslims and support their own people . This verse is not telling us to be against Jews or Christians , but it is telling is that we should take care of our own people and we must support each other. In his Tafsir , Imam Ibn Kathir has mentioned that some scholars say that this verse was revealed after the battle of Uhud when Muslims had to set back . At that time , a Muslim from Madina said "I am going to live with the Jews so I shall be safe in case another attack comes on Madina ." , and another said "I am going to live with Christians so I shall be safe in case another attack comes on Madina" . So Allah (swt) revealed this verse reminding the believers that they should not seek the protection from others , but should protect each other (See Ibn Kathir , Al-Tafsir , Vol 2 page 68) "
"As regards the meaning of the "alliance" referred to here , which explains the reference to a believer's loss of his moral identity if he imitates the way of life of, or-in Quranic terminology-"allies himself" with, non-Muslims. However, as has been made abundantly clear in 60: 7-9 (and implied in verse 57 of this Surah), this prohibition of a "moral alliance" with non-Muslims does not constitute an injunction against normal, friendly relations with such of them as are well-disposed towards Muslims. It should be borne in mind that the term wall has several shades of meaning: "ally", "friend", "helper", "protector", etc. The choice of the particular term - and sometimes a -combination of two terms-is always dependent on the context." (Asad, The Message of the Quran)
One explanation is that this is referring to the hypocrites : 'Oh ye who believe outwardly' , and they used to assist the polytheists and tell them about the secrets of the Muslims. As-Suddi said that this verse came down during the Battle of Uhud when Muslims were afraid that they were going to lose the battle and wanted to ally themselves with the Jews and Christians. (Source)
" Respected Anba.Bishoy , Secretary of The Holy Counsel , Bishop of The Diocese of Dumyat and Al-Barari , President of The Saint Dumyanah monastery.
Grace and Peace ,Respected , we have already sent you many letters concerning the converts to Christianity some of our churches are accommodating and welcoming (into their care) , and we demanded your excellency to expel these converts from the care and protection of the Coptic Church for the following reasons :
- Some of them accepted Christianity for the sole reason of getting a baptism certificate in order to migrate elsewhere under the claim of religious oppression and persecution , we have sent you via fax a list of their names.
- Many of them want to make a high income (off their conversion) thus their acceptance of the Christianity is more like a job than accepting Christianity by faith and conviction , it's not a Church's obligation to support unemployed people who desire a better life without doing any work.
- The huge amount of trouble and shameful scandals these converts are involved in , like the involvement of the convert Carmen in a forbidden relation with Boula Fu'ad -The Pastor of The Bilina Church- and the involvement of Makaree Yunan -The Pasor of The Azbakiyeh Church- in a sexual relationship with the convert Zainab in which her husband the convert Muhammad Hijazi filmed them and blackmailed Father Makaree into paying him , a list of the amounts Muhammad Hijazi blackmailed has been sent to you .Respected , the majority of these converts are of weak and hesitant natures , they are willing to sell their most precious for money ,there is no reason for the Church to protect or support them , there are other Christians who deserve our priority (attention) over these converts ,and I wish knowing that my wish will never come true , if his holiness the Pope can offer Shiek Al-Azhar an exchange of converts , we take one convert and they take ten.
Respected ,We hope you consider the issue of these converts seriously.Issued on Sep 6th 2008 . "
