Christians In Fear of Islamic Uprising in Egypt

As someone who has been writing about the Persecution of Christianity in the name of Islam as well as the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, the latest attacks in Egypt doesn’t surprise me. The Coptic Christians were in Egypt well before Islam was born. For those who do not know about Coptic Christianity here is a brief history:

The history of the Coptic Church in Egypt is basically the history of Christianity in Egypt, for the current Coptic Church is a direct evolution from those earlier times. However, it traditionally begins with the visit of the Holy Family to Egypt. Copts relate that the blessing of Christianity on their country goes back to the days when Jesus was a young boy. The holy family, consisting of the baby Jesus, Mary and Joseph traveled to Egypt and lived there for some time. Numerous traditions exist about the exact locations that the holy family visited and many take annual pilgrimages following this route (it is also a popular tourist route) However, historically it was Saint Mark the Evangelist, during the first century AD, who actually is considered to be the founder of the church. He preached and suffered martyrdom in Alexandria around the time that Nero ruled Rome.

The Obama Administration has a history of overlooking the Muslim Brotherhood, for example:

  • January of 2010 the Barack Obama administration has lifted an entry ban preventing Muslim Brotherhood leader Tariq Ramadan from entering the United States.

For those who are not aware of the documentation found by the FBI when investigating the Holy Land Foundation trial, one of the documents introduced during the trial was an 18-page memorandum written in 1992 by Mohammed Akram, a member of the American branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. It described the role the group sees for itself in America:

“The process of settlement in America is a Civilization-Jihadist process with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”

With friends like the Obama Administration, who needs enemies.
