Copts Fleeing Egypt as Persecution Grows

Let it be known, both now and forever, that the United States of America helped cleanse Egypt of its ancient population of Coptic Christians. And now, the United States is arming Al Qaeda to help them cleanse Syria of Christians. Future generations will look back on our generation as the most cowardly bunch of sniveling terrorist-enablers the world has ever seen.

CAIRO – Thousands of Egypt’s Coptic Christians are fleeing to Europe, the United States and elsewhere rather than face mounting discrimination at home.

Copts, Egypt’s ancient Christian community, are the country’s largest minority, making up nearly 10 percent of its 85 million people.

But clashes between Christians and Muslims have become more frequent since the ouster of longtime authoritarian ruler Hosni Mubarak in the 2011 uprising – some say due to a breakdown of government security. Many Copts feel Egypt's Islamist-led government is not doing enough to protect them from religious hate crimes and inflammatory rhetoric – so many are leaving.

“My sister in California wanted a better life for her and her two daughters,” explained Marianne Aziz, a 25-year-old pharmacist. “There was a big fight between us and our Muslim neighbors over our parking place ... . They cut my brother-in-law’s face with a knife.”

Aziz said that after that incident, “My sister felt she was no longer safe anymore. She got a hospital report on her husband’s injuries and a police report and when they went to the U.S., she immediately [applied for] asylum.”

Egyptian now ranks as the second highest nationality to receive asylum in the United States – although it is uncertain how many are Copts because immigration statistics do not include religious affiliation, many of the asylum seekers are believed to be Christian.

The number of Egyptians receiving asylum in the U.S. has jumped more than five-fold in recent years. In 2010, the year before the revolution, just 531 Egyptians received asylum in the U.S.; in 2012, that number jumped to 2,882, according to the Department of Homeland Security’s statistical data for 2012.

I am not a Copt but I attend their church and I do see
an increase in their numbers coming here.

It is a fact that population of Christians and non-Muslims for that matter
in Islamic countries are decreasing ...

This condemns Islam ...

Sickening.

My only issue is with your use of the word "terrorist" as opposed to "mohammedans" or "muslims" who are merely consistently living out their faith.

I don't know if we can hope to distinguish between "terrorists" and "consistent muslims."

Interesting piece of news on CNN.

'Honor' killings backed by many Jordan teens

But I wonder how the study deduced that religion is not a factor. As usual how they came to that conclusion is missing.
