Egypt--Local Christian and avid reader, Harry Winkle, lost his house to fire in what officials are calling a case of mistaken identity.

"I was walking down the street towards my home, and what do I see. A Muslim man standing in front of my house with a can of gasoline. No, this man didn't run when he saw me. He just called me a Zionist." Mr. Winkle told reporters.

"I told the man that I wasn't a Zionist, and that I was a Christian." Mr. Winkle added. "He asked me if I was sure, and I told him yes. He apologized, because he said he really thought I looked like a Zionist."

Mr. Winkle who has blonde hair and a deep German accent said that it isn't the first time he was accused of being a Zionist, but was thinking about shaving his beard in hopes of changing his appearance.

Officials are on record saying this isn't the first time a house in Egypt was burnt down due to mistake identity. Mr. Winkle's neighbor lost his house to fire just a couple hours earlier.

The officials also said it was unfortunate that the crummy Christians had their houses burn down, but that will teach them for following the wrong man.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
