Coptic Union calls for end to persecution


#1

The American Coptic Union is calling for an end to Islamic persecution and for equal human rights. It lists the rapes, murders, arson, and other horrible things that Christians endure from Muslims.

Also www.memri.org had on Oct. 5th an excellent essay on how Copts are mistreated in Egypt.

None of the usual denials or justifications? Is it possible our Muslim guests are getting the point? It would be nice to see an apology to the Copts and an immediate change in their treatment.

Here’s a recent attack on a Coptic girl

"EGYPT: CHRISTIAN GIRL ESCAPES MUSLIM KIDNAPPERS

October 9 (Compass Direct News) – An Egyptian Christian teenager escaped her Muslim kidnappers last week hours after they had drugged her on a public bus. While holding her captive, they threatened to rape her and convert her to Islam if her family did not leave their Nile Delta city of El-Mahala el-Kobra.

At 10 p.m. last Tuesday (October 3), Laurence Wagih Emil, 15, escaped the ground-floor room where she was being held in Cairo’s southern Helwan suburb while her captors were away breaking their Ramadan fast with an evening meal."
