Statement by the State Information Services in response to the allegations made in the report issued by Human Rights Watch 

The Egyptian government has taken note

Date of publication:Tuesday, 12 August 2014

the report issued by Human Rights Watch (HRW) on August 12. The report presents a highly negative and biased account of the violent events that took place in Egypt during the year 2013, and totally fails to adequately report on the attacks carried out by the Brotherhood, as a terrorist organization, and its supporters.

The content of the report did not come as a surprise to the Egyptian government, given the organization's well-known biases, and the approach it has consistently pursued. Accordingly, the Egyptian government utterly rejects the report and criticizes its biased perspective, which reaffirms the organization's persistent lack of objectivity towards Egypt. The report's portrayal of events that took place in July and August 2013 reflects a lack of professionalism by the organization's experts as they relied on unidentified witnesses as well as biased and non-credible sources. The report equally demonstrates an utter lack of understanding of the reality of the specificity of the Egyptian society and its political and ideological orientations that have developed throughout the past three years.  Moreover, the organization does not enjoy any legal status that may allow it to operate in Egypt.  The organization has indeed withdrawn its request for a permit to function in Egypt according to law no.84 of 2002.  As such, conducting investigations, collecting evidence, and interviewing witnesses without any legal backing are activities that constitute a flagrant violation of the established principle of state sovereignty under international law.

Islamic State Now Targeting East-Asia  


by JORDAN SCHACHTEL  Officials from both Indonesia, the state with the world's largest Muslim population, and Malaysia have warned that the radical Islamic State (IS) terror group is now targeting their respective countries.

Indonesia and Malaysia, known for their more secular governing policies in relation to other Muslim-majority countries, are being targeted because they have thus far refused to follow the strict and oppressive Islamic Shariah law.

Iraqi militants remove crosses from churches, burn manuscripts 

 KIRKUK: Militants who took over large areas of northern Iraq on Thursday have forced 100,000 Christians to flee and have occupied churches, removing crosses and destroying manuscripts, Chaldean Patriarch Louis Sako said.
“There are 100,000 displaced Christians who have fled with nothing but their clothes, some of them on foot, to reach the Kurdistan region,” he told AFP.
“This is a humanitarian disaster. The churches are occupied, their crosses were taken down,” said Sako, the leader of Iraq’s largest Christian denomination, which is aligned with the Roman Catholic Church. He added that up to 1,500 manuscripts were burnt.

Anti-terrorism laws more frightening than racial abuse, says Muslim group

The Lebanese Muslim Association argues tighter security laws are aimed specifically at the Muslim community


Samier Dandan


The Abbott government’s proposed changes to anti-terrorism laws are “more destructive” than the shelved amendments to race laws, the Lebanese Muslim Association has argued.

Tony Abbott attempted to appeal to Islamic communities on Tuesday by dumping changes to the Racial Discrimination Act in order to preserve “national unity” at a time when the government was seeking to toughen security laws.

But the prime minister’s gesture failed to satisfy the Lebanese Muslim Association, which said the anti-terrorism amendments seemed to “target the Muslim community” and “give authorities unprecedented and intrusive powers”.

أمن المنيا يسيطر على فتنة طائفية.. يتحفظ على كنيسة ويأخذ تعهدات بعدم  استكمال البناء

اندلاع مشاجرات بسبب بناء كنيسة.. والقبض على 14 شخصا مشاركين في الاشتباكات
الأمن يرعى جلسة عرفية لعدم حدوث تداعيات أخرى

كتب – نعيم يوسف
يقول المثل الشعبي "في الحزن مدعية وفي الفرح منسية"، وهذا المثل ينطبق تماما على حال أقباط المنيا وكنائسهم.. ففي الوقت الذي حرقت فيه عشرات الكنائس على مرأى الجميع وتحت سمع الدولة وبصرها، لم يحرك أحدا ساكنا.. وكأن شيئا لم يكن.. أما عند الشروع في بناء كنيسة واحدة فتقوم الدنيا ولا تقعد، ويتصدر المشهد –بكل بجاحة- متطرفون إن لم يكن برعاية أمنية، فبرضاها، وتواطئها، ويوقفون البناء.. وتقوم الأجهزة الأمنية بالتحفظ على "جسم الجريمة" وهو مبنى الكنيسة!! وتخرج علينا تقارير إعلامية وصحفية لتقول "حاول أقباط بناء كنيسة مما استفز مشاعر المسلمين!!" ولا ندري ما الذي يستفز مشاعرهم في بناء كنيسة؟!؟!

تجمهر حول منازل الأقباط في عزبة يعقوب خلال انقطاع الكهرباء 

كتب – نعيم يوسف

قال عزت إبراهيم، الناشط الحقوقي في المنيا، إن حوالي 2000 شخص تجمهروا حول منازل الأقباط في عزبة يعقوب، بمحافظة المنيا، خلال انقطاع الكهرباء في المنطقة، للاعتداء على منازل الأقباط

وأوضح إبراهيم، في مداخلة هاتفية مع برنامج "في النور" على شاشة "سي تي في" الفضائية، أن الأمن وصل متأخرا حوالي ساعتين، ولكن تم احتواء الموقف من جهة الأمن وعاد الهدوء الحذر إلى القرية. 

وأكد إبراهيم انه تم الإفراج عن جميع الأقباط.
 وحذر الناشط الحقوقي من بعض المنشورات التي يتم توزيعها في بعض قرى المنيا للتحريض على العنف في أول ذكرى لفض اعتصامي رابعة العدوية والنهضة.
الجدير بالذكر أنه تم الاعتداء على الأقباط في القرية على خلفية بناء كنيسة دون إصدار ترخيص.

Yes, We Are The Noon (N) People  

By Mounir Bishay


Noon is the Arabic letter that represents (n) in English.  It is the first letter in the Arabic word "Nasrani."  This word was used in reference to Christians in the Quran. The letter, “Noon,” was the mark that “ISIS” painted on the homes of the Christians of Mosul, Iraq.  It identified the home and business owners as citizens targeted for expulsion from the city where their Christian ancestors have lived for thousands of years.     

ISIS later renamed itself as the "Islamic State."  It invaded the Christian areas and took control.  Soon after, they attacked the homes of Christians, their churches, and monasteries.  They plundered household valuable and looted and destroyed irreplaceable archaeological treasures. In the end, they issued a statement to the Christians whom they had labeled “Nasrani” that they had only a few hours to make three monumental coerced decisions.

Noted Convert in Egypt, Released in Appeal, Quickly Imprisoned Again Mohammed Hegazy, now called Bishoy Armia Boulous, faces 2009 charges.

A noted convert in Egypt released on bail this week for the appeal of his disputed conviction for “inciting sectarian violence” was quickly imprisoned again on equally controversial charges from 2009 of “defaming Islam,” his attorney said.
Local security officials on Monday (July 21) turned Bishoy Armia Boulous, previously known as Mohammed Hegazy, over to the Ministry of Interior to face the blasphemy charges filed five years ago.

In 2009 two lawyers supported by a group of Islamists charged him with defaming Islam after he filed what became a very public lawsuit to force the Egyptian government’s Ministry of Interior to change the religious affiliation listed on his state-mandated national identification card from Muslim to Christian.

Trojan Horse Report Finds 'Determined Effort' To Implement Radical Islam In School

A report into the so-called Trojan Horse plot to takeover schools in Birmingham has found a "determined effort" to implement radical Islam. The comments came from the newly appointed Education Secretary Nicky Morgan, who made a statement on the subject in the House of Commons today.

The review was ordered by the Morgan's predecessor Michael Gove, following reports that as many as twenty-five Birmingham schools had been the subject of takeovers. In each case, the governing bodies were infiltrated by radicals who then set about pushing out moderate teachers and implementing radical Islam.
