In the New Egypt, It's "Punish the Victim and Crush the Innocent"

WASHINGTON, Feb. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Coptic Solidarity strongly urges that the international community, through the United Nations Human Rights Council, appoint a special rapporteur for the Copts in Egypt, particularly in light of the recent evictions, property confiscations and attacks against Copts.

The Copts are the Christians of Egypt who represent about 12% of Egypt's 84 million people.

Over the past two weeks, a new and ugly campaign has been waged against Copts. At least eight Coptic families have been evicted from their homes in the al-Nahda village, Amereyah, near Alexandria, following unconfirmed accusations against a Copt of having an affair with a Muslim woman. Even though the accused quickly surrendered himself to the police for investigation, some 5,000 village people, incited by Salafists and other Islamist groups, went on a violent rampage, collectively punishing the few Coptic families that live in the area, burning and ransacking their houses and their property. To make things worse, a "council" dominated by these Islamists was convened, in the presence of and approval of the area's chief of the police. This "council" decided to evict eight families from the village. The families' property will be liquidated by the "council." When the Coptic families objected to such a decision, they were told that were "free to stay at their own risk." They have since escaped, while the remaining families live in absolute horror.

Media Release

Islamic Extremist Elected as Egyptian President

26th June 2012

 

The Rev Hon Fred Nile MLC, Leader of the Christian Democratic Party, along with his Parliamentary team and Management Committee, are extremely concerned with developments in Egypt overnight, where the Muslim Brotherhood's candidate, Mohamad Morsi, narrowly defeated his opponent in the run-off vote to the Egyptian Presidency.

The ascendency of the Muslim Brotherhood has even shocked some liberal Muslims who are concerned about the implementation of the repressive Islamic Sharia Law in a nation that up until recent times was known for its moderate culture.

MRG urges Egypt to give Constitution drafting process more time

30 November 2012

Minority Rights Group International (MRG) expresses serious concern about Thursday's approval of the Draft Constitution by Egypt's Constituent Assembly.

Egypt's President Morsi has stated that he will now organise a popular referendum to ratify the draft. Roughly a third of the Assembly had resigned over the past months, protesting against the dominance of a political voting bloc promoting an Islamic conception of State and Society.

The members who resigned were predominantly from Liberal or Socialist parties, or belonging to the Coptic Christian Church, as well as representatives of ethnic minorities. Religious and ethnic minorities of Egypt were either never included in the Assembly, or have now withdrawn.

Official Press Release of the Coptic Orthodox Church in the United Kingdom

regarding the New Year's Eve at the Church of Saints Mark and Peter in Alexandria

We are deeply saddened and disturbed that once again, days of joy and celebration have been turned into a time of mourning and weeping. Our immediate thoughts and prayers are with all those who were affected by the bombing at the Church of Saints Mark and Peter in Alexandria: those who have lost their lives, their families, those who were injured, members of that parish, Christian communities in general, and Christians throughout the land of Egypt.

This was a time when Christians went as families to pray in the safety of the house of God. Men, women, children and the elderly gathered together in prayer for a happy and peaceful new year. Instead, they became the innocent victims of a most horrific, callus and cowardly act of terror and violence.

Two Coptic Children Accused of 'Insulting Islam' Released Pending Investigation  

The Coptic Organisations in the UK strongly condemn the irresponsible, threatening and intimidating action of the Egyptian Security forces and the judiciary in arresting and putting on trial 2 children under 10 who have been accused of defaming the Quoran.

The children who have been found to be illiterate have just been released pending a full trial.

This is just another clear example of terrorising Coptic families and their children, state collusion in persecuting Christians and abuse of the role of law and a clear miscarriage of justice on Coptic Christians in direct violation of “The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child” which Egypt is signatory country.

We ask the international community to take action and demand the immediate dismissal of this trial based on the illiteracy of the children and the malice nature of the accusation.

On 03/07/2013 The Egyptian people’s will prevailed. They crossed the sea of hatred, ignorance, discrimination and terrorism to emerge at the shores of freedom. Egypt’s tyrant who admittedly started as an elected president; has demonstrated incomparable incompetence, and was also reckless with the national security of the country. He had to be defeated. The people were victorious in their demand to bring down a new dictator. As the Egyptians recommenced their glorious revolution from the Tahrir square, its noble birth place, the army stepped in to protect the country against Morsi’s anti-democratic thugs.
