Grim Coptic Realities

The WCC and its local members whine about the alleged tribulations of the Middle East's only growing Christian population--here in Israel.

Have a look at the testimony of a Coptic Christian regarding the horrendous persecution of Egypt's Coptic minority. Church-burnings, torture, kidnap, and rape are often the fate of this beleaguered native minority. Christians pre-dated Muslims in Egypt by nearly a thousand years, and now are fleeing small towns to live as zabaleen in Cairo's garbage dump district. The smell is bad, but this ghetto is safer for Christians as Muslim persecution grows.

The situation  has only worsened since the downfall of the Mubarak regime.

The video is here, and transcript excerpts are available here.
