    Egypt's Christians "overwhelmed by anxiety and fear," see Muslim Brotherhood government as "worst in memory"
    "New government has failed us, say Egypt's Copts," by Youssef Hamza in The National, October 14 (thanks to Assad):

    CAIRO // Overwhelmed by anxiety and fear, some of Egypt's Coptic Christians now view life in the mainly Muslim nation as the worst in memory.
    Islamists of all shades have risen to positions of power in Egypt since the president, Hosni Mubarak, was toppled last year.

    The Muslim Brotherhood provided the nation with its first freely elected president, while its political party secured more parliamentary seats than any other party.

    As the Brotherhood seeks to project an image of moderation and flexibility, the ultraconservative Salafis are tirelessly advocating a strict implementation of Sharia that could reduce Christians to the status of second-class citizens by barring them from certain jobs or forcing them to pay a special tax historically known as "jizyah".

    Christian activist Beshawi Rifaat believes the plight of his community has worsened since Mohammed Morsi took office on June 30 and released scores of militants, with many of them speaking publicly against Christians.

    "The persecution of the Christians comes from individuals and non-governmental groups and it is not countered by any government action," said Mr Rifaat. "I take its silence to mean approval."...

    South Aftrica did it, now the shoe is on the other foot, they're still doing it, only in a reverse fasion.

    Israel does it, they just have more power and might.

    In the united states, power politics, using one group as a political pawn, while the different political groups wrestle over "rights" and privileges, has always been used to divide the electorate and distract them away from the most pressing issues of the day. What could be more pressing than the issue of slavery during the civil war? I'm sure there is hardly a soul on this board that could tell you. Yet somehow the united states financial elites and industrial classes had their nation plunged into a war that could've been easily been solved in the legislative chambers.

    Every nation does this to it's minorities, so what is your point, do you have one? Other than the fact that you like to stir up ignorance and hatred?

    Evidently Mr. Know-it-all doesn't read any of those sources written by Christians who are actually in the areas where Christians are being persecuted. He should especially read Raymond Ibrahim who gives a list of the incidents of persecution of Christians for the preceding month. What an eye opener. I think this list should be published in every major American newspaper each month to give the Christians in America a good idea of what is happening to their fellow Christians when in Muslim countries.

    Zionists don't care and shouldn't

    No Tears for Egypt’s Coptic Christians

    The Coptic Pope Shenouda III continues to regularly deliver anti-Semitic sermons and calls Jews “Christ-killers.” And, in July 2008, he told Egypt’s Al-Ahram newspaper:

    Jews are a cursed people who have their hands indulged in the blood of Palestinians.

    Even if American Christians read about these so called "Atrocities," I am sure the only thing they would want done is a voluntary human relief organization project, and prayer organized in support of their brethren. Aside from that? Turning the other cheek is what would be most advisable in the name of grace and humanity. Everything else would lead to the wages of sin and death.

    To tax the American electorate, those of many faiths, for a humanitarian, sectarian, special interest relief effort would not necessarily be fair. Nor would it be fair to bring about military, diplomatic, economic, or covert intelligence assets on a freely elected democratic government. The most Christian Americans could do is write their Congressional and Senatorial representatives, urging them to grant religious asylum to their Christian Egyptian brethren. Anything else is outside the scoop of the constitution and beyond what George Washington and the founders foresaw as the business of America on the international stage. Real Christians in America understand that their government is not the tool for helping others in the world, this is the duty and the mission of what their churches are for.

    Sometimes I really wonder if Jews and Muslims really understand that the heart of Christianity is forgiveness and love. They just don't seem to get that.

    Dollars to donuts, Mr. Know-it-all has not spoken to any Christian Copts in this country to see what they have to say about Muslims. In fact, Mr. Know-it-all, the Pope himself would disagree with this Coptic cleric and tell him he was wrong. If you were keeping up on things, you will see that the Pope is not happy with what is happening to Catholics and other Christians in Muslim countries. And given what is now happening to the Copts in Egypt, I can just imagine how the Coptic pope is cursing out the Muslims these days.
