Egyptian jihad group calls for Christian genocide

Coptic cross

Via Raymond Ibrahim:

According to today’s issue of El Fegr, “Elements of terrorist, jihadi organizations distributed leaflets today inciting for the killing of Copts in Suez, Ismailia, and Upper Egypt, promising them [Copts] a tragic end if they do not return to the truth.”

An image of a copy of the letter appears on El Fegr’s website. Titled “An Urgent and Important Notice,” it begins by calling on “all brothers and sisters” to “kill or physically attack the enemies of the religion of Allah—the Christians in all of Egypt’s provinces, the slaves of the Cross, Allah’s curse upon them…” It proceeds to promise a monetary reward for whoever helps “achieve Allah’s rights against his enemies.”

(…)

This genocide has been called until Egypt’s Christians “return to the truth,” a reference apparently meaning that Egypt’s Christians must either embrace “the truth”—that is, Islam, which they must convert to—or else return to the truths of the religion, which holds that Christians must embrace their subhuman dhimmi status (Koran 9:29).

The ongoing persecution of religious minorities in the Muslim world is something rarely reported in our mainstream media, which instead hangs on every word about “Islamophobia” uttered by CAIR and its allies. But, unlike those claims, the persecution of Christians, Zoroastrians, Baha’is, Jews, and Buddhists in areas where Islam dominates or seeks domination is all too real — and often fatal.

One of the founding, core ideals of the United States is freedom of religion, the right to practice one’s faith -or no faith at all- without fear of punishment. We consider it a universal, unalienable right, pre-existing any government, endowed in all by Nature and Nature’s God.

It would be nice if the current administration could be bothered to speak out for that right, on behalf of those suffering genuine oppression.

    Religion of Peace? Islam actually translates to Submission.

    ….nothing to see here! The Muslim Bros are benign (according to Hillary). Move on! Move on!

  3. This is all part of our Ayatollah-in-Chief’s plan for the Middle East. Lucky for him he has a Sharia-compliant and complicit media to play along. And he sees fit to blame Fox News for many members of the US public thinking he is a Muslim? Actions speak louder than words. (And Fox News has never aired such a charge.)

    How’s that “Arab Spring” working out now, liberal media? What with a “moderate” Muslim Brotherhood to run things in the country now, expect there to be a real bloodbath in that country and, when other Islamist countries see how effete this administration is in its response, in other Arab countries, too.

    Remember when it was important enough to go to war in Bosnia because those nasty Christians were picking on those poor, defenseless Muslims? And the outrage of the LSM at the same?

    Where’s the outrage now?

    The Coptic religion is one of the oldest religions in Christianity. It predates Islam by 500 years… how can they return to the truth, when they are already there. – Lorica

    The Muslims miss no opertunity to prove that their religion is pure evil and comes from Satan.
