Rape, Harassment & Kidnapping of Women in Morsi’s Egypt

Morsi weasels and lies when asked about the ongoing kidnappings and rape of Coptic Christians

Egyptian President Denies Targeting of Christian Girls

Good news: it doesn’t happen every day, statistics suggest that Christian girls are disappearing at a rate of one every three days, not one every day—much to Morsi’s relief.

During Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi’s recent visit to Germany, in an open meeting with that nation’s Egyptian community, a Coptic Christian attendee implored him to take measures to help protect the Christian girls of Egypt, who, as the man put it, “are subject to kidnappings on a daily basis.”

According to the Arabic website Gate Ahram, instead of addressing the situation, Morsi opted to nitpick: “The President expressed dismay at the statement, since it is impossible for such a thing to happen in Egypt on a daily basis…. President Morsi asked for information about specific cases, if there were any, in order to take necessary actions and investigate himself, as well as asking the [Coptic] man to give him his phone number to follow up with him.”

Morsi then pontificated in egalitarian terms, including about how Christians in Egypt cannot be called a minority, blah blah….

Raymond Ibrahim: The ‘Epidemic’ of Sexual Harassment—and Rape—in Morsi’s Egypt

Over at FrontPage Mag (via RaymondIbrahim.com), I discuss yet another indicator of the true nature of the Obama-supported “Arab Spring.”

Since the “Arab Spring” came to Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood assumed power, sexual harassment, abuse, and rape of women has skyrocketed. This graph, which shows an enormous jump in sexual harassment beginning around January 2011, when the Tahrir revolts began, certainly demonstrates as much. Its findings are further supported by any number of reports appearing in both Arabic and Western media, and from both Egyptian and foreign women.

Hundreds of Egyptian women recently took to the streets of Tahrir Square to protest the nonstop harassment they must endure whenever they emerge from their homes and onto the streets. They held slogans like “Silence is unacceptable, my anger will be heard,” and “A safe square for all; Down with sexual harassment.” “Marchers also shouted chants against President Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood group from which he hails,” wrote Al Ahram Online

The response? More sexual harassment and rapes. (More)
