Is Egypt preparing the genocide on the Coptic Christians?

All the signs are pointing in the same direction: for years, the soldiers of Allah have been sharpening the knives to cut the throats of the  Christian minority, Egypts original inhabitants. The constant attacks are all but ignored by the Western lame stream media, who carry water for Mohammedanism just like Al Jizz:

Al-Jazeera carries water for Islamic supremacists, repeating accusations that Egyptian Christians are stockpiling weapons, kidnapping Muslim women

What better subterfuge than to accuse your enemy of what you yourself have engaged in for years? As far back as 1976, Coptic Pope Shenouda III noted that “there is a practice to convert Coptic girls to embrace Islam and marry them under terror to Muslim husbands.” Our own archives are full of seven years’ worth of stories of kidnappings of Coptic girls and women. Here’s one. And another. And another. And still another, where Muslims tried to claim the conversion of a priest’s wife.

Muslims dousing a Christian Copt with petrol and burning him alive. The Western media snoozes…..

But the accusations of Christian abductions of Muslims — intentional projections that they are of Egyptian Muslims’ behavior — are part of a new campaign of libel to incite and justify violence against this non-Muslim population whose presence predates the Islamic conquest of Egypt, and so rudely insists on continuing to exist. And we know which side Al-Jazeera is on.

“Egyptian Muslims accuse Christians of complicity with Israel,” from Spero News, October 26 via Jihad Watch:

Fears for the safety of Egyptian Christians are growing after a series of false allegations, violent threats and mass demonstrations against Christians in Egypt, according to the Barnabas Fund – an advocacy and charitable organization based in the United Kingdom.

According to a news release, Muslim anger was ignited in September 2010 last month when entirely unfounded accusations were made on Al-Jazeera TV that Egyptian Christians were aligned with Israel and stockpiling weapons in preparation for waging war against Muslims. Tensions were also fuelled by baseless rumours circulated by Islamist leaders that Christians were kidnapping and torturing women who had converted to Islam.

Why bring Israel into it, beyond the standard conspiracy paranoia? The Qur’an says Jews and Christians are “friends and protectors” to each other, and Muslims should not befriend them (5:51).

In a separate controversy, a senior church leader [Coptic Pope Shenouda III] wascompelled to apologise publicly “if our Muslim brothers’ feelings were hurt” after another church leader questioned at an internal meeting a verse in the Qur’an that accuses Christians of being “infidels”. Egyptian Christians’ rights were subsequently threatened by the Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs, a government body, which confirmed Egypt to be an Islamic state where “the citizenship rights of non-Muslims were conditional to their abiding by the Islamic identity of the State”.

At least ten mass demonstrations involving thousands of Muslims have since taken place against Christians, with the previously unknown group “Front of Islamic Egypt” promising them a “bloodbath”.

Barnabas notes that Egyptian authorities have been accused of complicity for political reasons in the escalating sectarian crisis ahead of next month’s national election for the lower house of Parliament and the 2011 Presidential election. Christian human rights activists said that the Egyptian authorities may be trying to use Islamic radicalism as a means to channel against the Christians the escalating social discontent in the country.

Dr Patrick Sookhdeo, International Director of Barnabas Fund, said “I am greatly concerned about events in Egypt over the last few weeks. We must pray that the hostility towards the Church does not descend into outright violence against Christians – as we have seen before.”

Barnabas Fund supports a range of projects that help Christians in Egypt. The country has the largest Christian population of any Muslim nation in the Arab world, estimated at six to ten million. They regularly face discrimination, human rights violations and sectarian hostility.


It’s cookin’. The Religion of Peaceâ„¢, Harmony©, Tolerance© etc etc is gunning for Christians, and also in countries such as Turkey where it apparently now is becoming a crime to insult the Turkish state and people by spreading Christianity.

  1. My doctor is a Copt. He has told me for many years about the persecution of his people in Egypt. It is not lie, it is the truth. These Coptic Christians are experiencing dreadful torture and discrimination every day of their lives. This group of Christians are probably the oldest followers of Jesus because the church in Egypt was begun by Mark, the Apostle of Christ. I would not blame them for complicity with the Jews, they are the voices crying in the wilderness of Muslim outrage against them. The copts are a very gentle people and are an easy target for murderous Islam.

  2. The sad reality of life in egypt.

    The Muslim Brotherhood are at the forefront of leading the attack and genocide of copts in egypt.
    The Copts are the natives of egypt, and descendants of the pharos. The Arab islamic invaion in the 7th century resulted in the immediate oppression and suppression of the copts. Today the tsunami of islam dominates egypt. 90% muslim 10 % christian.

    The aim is to transform egypt into a total islamic state with shariah law and ensure no christian survival.

    As bleak and dark as it is, as serious as the threat, the COPTS are children of Jesus Christ, The Coptic Church belongs to Christ, and he will never forsake his children or church.

    I pity the muslims, for the wrath of God will be unleashed upon them in his own time. God is the guardian of the Church, and mighty is the spirirt of God and will overcome any evil.

    I despair for my coptic brothers and sisters living in the draconian barbaric islamic state of egypt. May Christ protect, guard and guide them every second of every day. Amen

    I urge all to condemn the oppression of the copts in every possible manner.
    God Bless

  3. Melkite Archbishop Cyril Bustros: “Al-Quds, which should be a house of prayer for all nations, has become in the hands of the Zionists a den of thieves where innocents and whoever claims a right and justice is killed.”

    Seems to be worse than anyone can possibly imagine, when even the clerics have to declare to hate Jews in solidarity/dhimmitude with their Mohammedans masters……

  4. Raymond Ibrahim: Islamic supremacists in Egypt project their crimes on the Copts

    Again and again over the years we have noted here how Islamic supremacists will never take any responsibility for any wrongdoing by Muslims, and often claim victim status and accuse their foes of the very evils of which they themselves are guilty. Here our good friend Raymond Ibrahim discusses that phenomenon in regard to the Copts in Egypt. “Islamists Accuse Egypt’s Christians of Behaving Like…Islamists?,” by Raymond Ibrahim for Hudson New York via, October 28:

    The persecution of Egypt’s Coptic minority is taking an ironic, and dangerous, turn: Islamist leaders are now projecting the worst traits of radical Islam onto Egypt’s Christians. A psychological phenomenon first described by Sigmund Freud, “projection” is defined as “the attribution of one’s own ideas, feelings, or attitudes to other people.” As such, consider how the following excerpt from this recent report is a perfect example of projection:
    In the last month various fundamentalist groups held ten demonstrations [in Egypt], each after coming out of mosques following Friday prayers, against the 86-year-old ailing Coptic Pontiff, in which he was accused of being a US agent, an abductor and torturer of female Muslim converts from Christianity, of stockpiling weapons in monasteries and churches to carry out war against Muslims, and of plans to divide Egypt to create a Coptic State.
    All of these accusations are as ludicrous to apply to the Coptic Church as they perfectly apply to Islamists. Let us first examine the context of these charges:

    “Abducting and torturing female Muslim converts from Christianity.” Context: The wife of a Coptic priest, Camelia Shehata, was reportedly kidnapped by Islamists, but then returned to her family. In response, Islamist leaders began saying that she had willingly runaway and converted to Islam, and, in fact, has been “re-kidnapped” by the Coptic Church, which has trapped her in a monastery where she is being “tortured” and “re-indoctrinated” to Christianity.

    In fact, the opposite scenario — kidnapping Christian women and forcing them to convert to Islam — is a well documented and notorious phenomenon in Egypt. So now the Coptic Church is being accused of behaving identically — not just kidnapping, but torturing, brainwashing, and forcing women to convert. Moreover, that Camelia has appeared on video fervently affirming her Christian faith and denying that she ever converted to Islam has been ignored, no doubt because Islam’s ingrained notion of taqiyya, or deceit, is also being projected onto the Copts. Finally, little wonder this charge jibes well with Muslims: their own sharia mandates that Muslim women who apostatize must be incarcerated and tormented until they return to Islam, such as in the recent case of Nagla Imam.

    “Stockpiling weapons in monasteries and churches to carry out war against Muslims.” Context: On September 15, leading Islamic figure Dr. Muhammad Salim al-Awwa appeared on Al Jazeera and, in a wild tirade, accused the Copts of “stocking arms and ammunitions in their churches and monasteries”– imported from Israel, no less, since “Israel is in the heart of the Coptic Cause” — and “preparing to wage war against Muslims.” He warned that if nothing is done, the “country will burn,” inciting Muslims to “counteract the strength of the [Coptic] Church.” Awwa further charged that Egypt’s security forces cannot enter the monasteries to investigate for weapons (an amazing assertion, considering that Coptic monasteries are not only at the mercy of the state, but easy prey to Islamist attacks, with monks tortured and crucifixes spat upon).

    Needless to say, such charges are preposterous: in a nation and society where Islam is supreme; where sharia (which mandates subjugation for non-Muslims, a la Koran 9:29) is part of the Constitution; where Copts have been conditioned over centuries to be happy just being left alone — is it reasonable to believe that these selfsame, down-trodden Christians, who make up 12-15% of the population, are planning a violent takeover of Egypt? It is easy to see, however, why such charges resonate with Muslims; after all, Islamists are constantly arming and stockpiling weapons — a Koranic charge — including in mosques, as they prepare to violently seize power across the nations, Egypt being an especially coveted target. Indeed, at one point, Awwa himself ceded that “Muslims are arrested every day [in Egypt] for extremism and the possession of arms.”…

    Read it all.

    They quickly discard the “three great Abrahamic faiths” sheep’s clothing like an old unwashed burka when they no longer need it.

    Behold the de-cloaked wolf: “he who opposes and exalts himself against all that is called God or that is worshiped; so that he sits as God in the temple of God, setting himself up as God.” (2 Thessalonians 2:4,
    referring to Antichrist).

  6. my heart goes out to all non muslims who are suffering at the hands of this demonic cult known as Islam. They are innocent lambs being slaughtered.
