Praying the Suspicions are Untrue!

This is one horrendous story! A New Jersey family was murdered in their home. They were devout Eqyptian Christians who left their homeland ten years ago because of religious persecution. Some believe the murders had to do with the the father's criticism of Islamists at Internet chat rooms. He was accused of insulting Islam and had been threatened with murder. Supposedly, one of the posters had threatened "we will track you down and kill you like chickens".

The homicide, according to published reports, may have been an act of rage on the part of an Islamic extremist group.

Police are still investigating whether the brutal murders were committed because of an exchange about religion in a chat room on the Web.
