Free Michel Nabil


Assad Elepty


In the aftermath of the Egyptian revolution Coptic Christian Michel Nabil was arrested for writing a blog titled “The People and the Army Were Never One Hand”,  and convicted of insulting the military and disturbing public security.

The article in no way disturbs the peace or incites any anarchy or protest.

Egypt’s Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF), has never explained or detailed on what basis the article disturbs the peace. The article was a personal expression of opinion about the future of Egypt, the very things that motivated the revolution, namely “freedom and democracy”.


Most alarming is the notion of “insulting the military”, reality been Nabil merely expressed an opinion that SCAF did not like. Crucially, these despots in SCAF are acting in the exact same manner that has caused outrage throughout the “Islamic middle east”. The mass protests and “revolutions” are still occurring, resulting in 10,000’s of deaths including during Ramadan (not very holy!!).

The Walls That Divide Europe
"Sweden is the Best Islamic State"
Herbert I. London, Hudson New York
Walls can be used to keep people in and keep people out, as was true of he Berlin Wall erected in 1961 and today of the walls being erected throughout Europe.

These contemporary walls operate under the name of "no go" zones, areas that are off limits to non-Muslims. These zones function as micro-states governed by Sharia Law. In many locations from Malmo to Hamburg, and from Liverpool to Rotterdam, host country authorities have lost effective control over these zones, and often are unable to provide even basic public aid -- such as police and fire assistance and ambulance services -- without permission from the local imam.

9/11 and the Muslim Brotherhood  

Written by Sam Blumenfeld





On September 11, 2011, a solemn memorial service will take place at Ground Zero on the tenth anniversary of that fateful day when 3,000 innocent Americans were killed by an attack on the United States by radical Islamists. It will remind us that although Osama bin Laden was killed by American Navy Seals, the war against radical Islam continues. Indeed, it has simply entered a new phase, the nature of which will be determined by the outcome of the Arab Spring.

As in memorial services in previous years, the names of the dead will be read by their relatives, who still suffer their losses. And it is important that we should be reminded of that day, which destroyed our delusion that the fall of the Berlin Wall would usher in a new era of world peace and happiness. Instead, we now face, for the indefinite future, a global war declared by radical Islam.

'Exterminate Christians, close pyramids, Sphinx'

Rising leader in Egypt has astonishing plans

By Bob Unruh

U.S. jets over pyramids

A rising leader in the radical Islamic movement in Egypt that has become a major political player since the demise of Hosni Mubarak's regime says Christian churches may need to be blown up and Christians exterminated to allow the advance of Islamic law, or Shariah.

The comments come from Sheik 'Adel Shehato, a senior leader with the Egyptian Islamic Jihad terrorist group. The sheik was jailed in 1991 because of his positions but was released earlier this year in the revolution that removed Mubarak from power.

His interview with the Egyptian daily Roz Al-Yousef was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

Egypt: Blow up the Churches, Pay Jiza or kill them & close the pyramids, sphinx...

Jihadist Adel Shehato


Sheik 'Adel Shehato a senior leader with the Egyptian Islamic Jihad terrorist group, was jailed in 1991 for involvement in terrorist activities. Thanks to the genius of the Einstein’s running the Egyptian military he was released earlier this year without explanation.


Sheik Adel conducted a harrowing interview with the Egyptian daily Roz Al-Yousef on 13 August 2011.


This mentally challenged halfwit quickly rose as a leader in the radical Islamic movement since his release by the military.


During the course of the interview, this warped Islamic radical has yet again confirmed “Islam is an evil backward ideology, a religion of hatred, oppression, intolerance, violence and full of devout animals like himself.”


Is South Sudan the Key to Christian Survival in the Middle East?

 British Pakistani Christian Association 

The independence of South Sudan on 24 July 2011 was a momentous event. After decades of fighting domination by the Arabic speaking and increasingly radically Islamic north, the largely Christian, animist and Black African south achieved liberation. While it would be naïve to assume all is well in the new state, especially since the former rebel movement has not given up human rights abuses as it attempts to become a responsible government, there are some hopeful signs as the state rebuilds a much damaged infrastructure and traumatised population.

Casual Hate: The Subtle Side of Christian Persecution

Posted by Raymond Ibrahim


Earlier this month I participated in Coptic Solidarity’s Second Annual Conference in Washington D.C., titled: “Will Religious and Ethnic Minorities Pay the Price of the ‘Arab Spring’?”  Panelists included Middle East specialists, prominent members of the Coptic community, and other minority leaders from the Muslim world, including Kurds, Berbers, and Sudanese animists.

Held at the U.S. Capitol, nine members of Congress made statements and showed their support, including Sue Myrick, Chris Smith, and Frank Wolf.  Walid Phares, a Congressional advisor who also participated, asserted that their appearance is encouraging and indicates that at least some members of Congress “are aware about the plight of minorities in general and of Christian communities in the Arab and Muslim world, and are particularly concerned about the Islamist and jihadi threat to these communities.”

If there is one thing Baroness Caroline Cox is not afraid of it is whipping up controversy. For almost three decades the Christian peer has sat in the House of Lords campaigning on one obscure issue to another, desperately trying to alert Britain's political elite to some of the world's forgotten conflicts. Nagorno-Karabakh, southern Sudan, Burma, Nigeria: If there is an ignored conflict – particularly one in which Christians are facing persecution – you can bet the 73-year-old will have been there.


About the revolution

By Tareq Heggy


January 25, 2011: IN defiance of State Security arsenals and an interior ministry swollen from one hundred thousand men in 1981 to over a million at the beginning of 2011, despite extensive wiretapping and eavesdropping on all forms of electronic and tele- communications and tight state control over much of the media, the January 25 revolution was a well-organised movement from the start. Armed with a steely determination, it succeeded in mustering a mass following that was remarkably united across class, age and sectarian lines.

Attacks on Christians: Can Egypt Deal with Extremist Mobs?

On the night of March 8, Yasser Makram was on his way home from work, his pickup truck full of garbage, as he turned up the winding dirt road on the edge of Egypt's capital to approach his home in the crowded Cairo slum known popularly as Garbage City. As he inched around a curve, he saw in his rearview mirror a swarm of people running toward the truck. "I didn't know what was happening," he says. Before he could consider the possibilities, the mob pulled him from the truck. "They demanded to know if I was Christian."

Egypt: Salafis’ Agenda behind Christian Persecution

A recent spate of violence in Egypt, mostly incited by conservative Salafi Muslims after President Hosni Mubarak’s downfall, has left over 24 killed, more than 200 wounded and three churches destroyed. The perception of threat to the Christians is so severe that many of them are reportedly seeking to move out of the country.

Salafism: The unknown quantity

Sectarian incidents like the burning of churches in Imbaba have put the spotlight on Salafis. Who are they, and what do they espouse, asks Amani Maged

Although a few know who the Salafis really are, they have become the talk of the nation


Who exactly are the Salafis? What kinds of them are there? What is their relationship to the government and what is their political future? Some have announced that they plan to establish political parties. How will recent events affect their popularity?

It appears that Salafis come in various shades. They do not rally behind a single leader, such as the Muslim Brotherhood or Al-Gamaa Al-Islamiya. Rather, they have a collection of sheikhs, each of which has its own following, and they have their own associations.

Islamists Target Egypt's Christians

IPT News

Egypt's Arab Spring has become a nightmare for the nation's 2,000-year-old Coptic Christian community, now the terror target of choice for Islamist radicals. Christians' "personal security has gotten much worse" since the February ouster of President Hosni Mubarak, says Nina Shea of the Hudson Institute, who monitors the situation of religious minorities in the Muslim world.

The Weekly Standard 

Egypt’s Other Extremists

While the Muslim Brotherhood gets all the ink, the Salafists go on a rampage.

Judging the likely trajectory of post-Mubarak Egypt requires assessing the depth of public support for Islamism, and usually this has meant assessing the strength and intentions of the Muslim Brotherhood. While the Brotherhood remains central, however, the country is also facing a frequently violent upsurge of Salafist versions of Islam.

The groups can overlap, but the Brotherhood tends to stress an Islamic state and political organization, and its members have no prescribed mode of dress, apart from modesty: In this sense they are a modern movement. The Salafists are often distinguishable by full beards for men and full face covering for women, and they stress emulating the piety and practice of the first three generations of Muslims (Salaf means “predecessor” or “forefather”). 

The Persecution of Egypt’s Coptic Christians Continues

By Nina Shea

The Arab Spring has not been kind to Egypt’s Christian minority. Over the weekend, Muslims apparently incited by Islamist hardliners again terrorized Coptic Christians, in what is now a pattern of attacks against them and their churches. Possibly the Islamists are jockeying for political power in this transitional period, or even trying to immediately effect a religious cleansing similar to the one that has happened in Iraq.

Copts, numbering about 10 million, constitute the largest Christian group and the largest religious minority in the Middle East. Their size will likely prevent an escalating persecution of them from going unnoticed for long in the West.
