Egypt: The Plight of the Christian Copts

Egypt’s Coptic Christians call for general strike on September 11 to protest persecution

Traditional Islamic law for dhimmis forbids them to build new churches. Christians in Egypt still suffer from a cultural hangover of that law. “Coptic Christians in Egypt Call for Strike to Protest Mistreatment,” by Mary Abdelmassih for AINA, September 6 (thanks to JW):

(AINA) — In the last week of July a Coptic rights movement dubbed “Copts for Egypt,” using the social network Facebook as platform, called upon all Copts in Egypt to stage a general strike on September 11, which coincides with the Coptic New Year.

In its communiqué, which first appeared on the Facebook site, the group stated the action is meant to express the resentment of all Copts over the Egypt’s position on the repeated attacks on the homes and property of Copts because some of them have been used for religious observance.

The group members, wanting to remain anonymous, describe themselves as “Egyptians, pained by the divisions among the Egyptian rows, and being the ‘the voice of the voiceless” (the oppressed). Members of the group are Muslims and Christians.”

The “Copts for Egypt” movement has asked Copts participating in the strike to stay at home all day on September 11, and if they leave their homes for any reason wear black.

The strike centers around the Copts’ demands for the Egyptian government to ratify the unified law for building houses of worship, and to abolish the unofficial “reconciliation sessions,” which takes place despite the presence of criminal suspicion, and to bring the perpetrators in sectarian strife to justice.

  1. It actually a combination of radicals making troubles by targetting Copts but actually it has a lot more to do with money.

    Copts, having been the longest term residents of modern Egypt and during times of foreign occupation were given wealth and some privilage, own in the most expensive part of towns, such as the old-district of central Cairo.

    So they are being targetted to move them out so that commercial development takes over. It is an old scam, well known and has taken on a dimension common – against minorities. Brazillians do it against Indians for wood, Indonesians do it for wood, Israelis do it in Al Qods/Jerusalem to “own the old city” and Egyptians are doing it against the Cops to get that central city land.

    They did it in fact over the Swine Flu with the obviously stupid claim that they need to cull the pigs in Cairo and so the Government decided to move them to an outside city district and the land was confiscated and now a Five Star Hotel is being built in the area that was bulldozed overnight.

    Nothing really to do with religion, just pick on the minority for commercial purposes – common but of course unjust and ugly.

    1. Nothing really to do with religion, just the good old Islamic way to expropriate the dhimmies completely…

      Hiding amongst garbage, but never safe from the ‘fanatical frenzy which is more dangerous than hydrophobia in a dog’ (Churchill) : Egypts indigenous people, the Copts

      The sad reality of the Copts living under Islam in Egypt can be seen here:

    Never is with Solkhar / DHH, but why do the Moroccan authorities
