Save Sameh Khouzam


#1

It is not often that we actually *know *the *names *of persecuted Christians, but we do *know *this one’s name. Please, *pray *for Sameh Khouzam. I am also asking you to, please, take a *few minutes *of your time to help Sameh. This persecuted Christian is rapidly running out of time. (For more information on Sameh, see hractivists.org/savesameh.html.) The page to *sign his petition is normally the “donation” page of the internationally respected Institute on Religion and Public Policy. No donation *is required, nor will one be accepted, to *sign *the *petition *for Mr. Khouzam. The *Institute *is only using their *donation page *for *his petition *right now, and *not *for any donations. The *link *to his *petition page *is at the *bottom *of this E-mail (in blue), *below *the *Institute’s *own message about Sameh.Please, take the time to *sign *this *petition *on behalf of Sameh. (For more information on this non-profit organization, see www.religionandpolicy.org.)

Statement from the Institute on Religion and Public Policy -

The United States intends to deport Mr. Sameh Khouzam back to Egypt on MONDAY, JUNE 18, at the request of the Egyptian government, despite the fact that Mr. Khouzam faces torture and death upon his return.There is no concrete or verifiable evidence that he committed any crimes in Egypt. Mr. Khouzam fled to America in 1998 after he was detained by the Egyptian government and forcefully “encouraged” to convert from his Coptic Christianity to Islam. After his departure, the Egyptian government informed United States officials that Mr. Khouzam was wanted for unsubstantiated crimes against a Muslim family.Mr. Khouzam is facing torture and death primarily because he is a member of a religious minority in Egypt. However, the U.S. Government simply will not act to prevent this unless confronted by an overwhelming response of outrage from its citizens. I have just signed an online petition sponsored by the Institute on Religion and Public Policy to save Mr. Khouzam’s life.
