Coptic Christians Now Under Siege In America


By Daniel Greenfield – “Isn’t it wonderful how Islam bridges nations and cultures. Yesterday Copts were being persecuted in Egypt, today they’re in danger in California. That’s just one of the ways that Islam keeps enriching our lives.

Local law enforcement authorities are stepping up patrols around Coptic Christian houses of worship to deter those who might target them because the producer of an anti-Muslim movie that sparked unrest in the Middle East has ties to the religion.

And unlike Muslims, who whine after every Muslim terrorist attack that they now have to live in fear, American Copts have justifiable reasons to be afraid of violence.

Saad says Coptic migration increased after the 1967 war with Israel, and in the 1970s when Anwar Sadat ruled Egypt. The period saw a rise of fundamentalist Islam, culminating in Sadat’s assassination in 1981. His successor, Hosni Mubarak, clamped down on Islamists, and Egypt’s approximately 8.5 million Copts were relatively safe during the next three decades — though the community did face violence and pressure. But ever since the ouster of Mubarak in 2011, and the subsequent rise of the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood as a political force, there has been a steady increase in Coptic emigration to the U.S. and elsewhere.

“Numbers have greatly increased over the past 18 months since the so-called Arab Spring,” Saad said. “We are seeing tens of families in every church every month.”

Jews are also afraid, even though Sam Bacile, who falsely claimed to be Jewish, was not Jewish at all.

The Wiesenthal Center, which regularly denounces anti-Semitic activities around the world as it documents the Holocaust and hunts down Nazi war criminals, urged the media to avoid casting the video as an Israeli or Jewish product.

“We need media to ensure that this film does not become another blood libel against world Jewry,” it said.

Too late.” Source – FrontPageMag.com.

US Federal Authorities Tells Muslim World: A Coptic Christian Is Responsible For Anti-Mohammed Film – “This disclosure by federal authorities, even if true, is the epitome of reckless stupidity. To disclose the creator as a ‘Coptic Christian’ during a time in which the Coptic community in Egypt is struggling for their very existence is akin to reinforcing the Nazi conviction in 1939 that the Jews were responsible for all of Germany’s misfortunes. And we all know what then happened to Jews …” Read more.

    What are the 2 things that Satan hates more than anything? God’s chosen, and Jesus and his followers. I don’t think there can be any doubt who their god really is.

    Call me a conspiracy crazy person…but I am beginning to think that this could be a set-up just to ” shake their (islamic muslims)chains” even more. Christians were already being killed and the muslims want everyone to be like them. Their God is NOT the same as the Trinity. Christ is against murder.
