Regardless of the identity or religion of a terrorist, he is but a devil in human body. Jesus Christ said about the devil that “He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him”. No matter where the terroristic attack happens, it’s but an evil work. Furthermore, I think that those who rejoice for such attack participate somehow with the terrorist. As both are full of hatred and evil. Moreover, I think that those who rejoice for such attack are even worse than that terrorist as they are so cowards.
Recent attacks on St. Mark Cathedral in Abbassya, encountered violence, terror, murder and harassment. The whole world as well as human conscience were shocked, and many hearts were driven to despair. In fact, our Christian history tells us that Christianity was born under much more difficult circumstances, even since Christ was born. Each time Christians gather to perform their prayers, they remember Christ saying: “In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
As usual Morsy and the Muslim Brotherhood keep going on their plans regardless of the people's reaction or other countries views like if nothing in this world matters except fulfilling their goals and plans!
The good / bad news is Boston Bombs as last week 3 bombs exploded one at Manhattan and 2 at Boston not to talk of unexploded packages found near by and American police and investigators are not MB Egyptian police, within 48 hours they knew who the suspects are and were on the run!
We can be against the United States, as we want. We all don’t like some of their policies towards the world. We all don’t like the States supporting the Muslim Brotherhood, which we believe helped Egypt go backwards as a result. Despite all of the previously mentioned, we respect the States because it is a country that follows the law and applies it to its citizen without any discrimination.
Some people refuse to call the events of Jan. 25, 2011 as a revolution. I think they have the rights to do so, as revolutions usually aim to topple a bad regime and solve many problems. In Egypt, the “revolution” hasn't solved any problems and brought a worse regime. Giving its mixed standards, we can call it a “reversed revolution”.=
Copts and Muslims in Paris organized a demonstration on April 12th against killing innocent Christians in Khosous as well as attacking the Great Cathedral of St. Mark. However, some young Coptic Christians didn't like some cheers of unity among all Egyptians, Muslims and Christians. So, I need here to point out to some facts concerning the Coptic issue.
The Muslim Brotherhood group has become so arrogant after having a number of fake achievements. For instance, winning the forged presidential elections, drafting the disagreeable constitution, and fighting with the judiciary. Moreover, they arrested and killed many political activists and patriots.
The tension in the relationship between the presidency (led by the Muslim Brotherhood), and the military has reached its peak. It looks like the MB apply the Quranic verse that says: “Verily never will God change the condition of a people until they change it themselves”. On one hand, they will never abandon their conspiracies or stop trading on religion. On the other, the Egyptian Military is such a national and honorable institution that throughout history, and since its foundation by Muhammad Ali Pasha, is the protector of Egypt and its people.
Last week we saw the attack on the Cathedral a two thousand years church never ever any body thought of attacking it! Was it the revenge from Christians Egyptians who dared to support El Tayeb the Symbol of Islam not just in Egypt but most Islamic countries? Or, is it a systematic attack followed the attacks on the press the media presenters the Egyptian intelligence and without forgetting the disrespect of the juridical system?
The Copts have been continually suffering from persecution and killed by the Muslims for a long time. During this persecution, some Copts have been killed and others injured. Some lost their main source of life from perhaps injuries during these accidents or because their shops were burned.
Every now and then, the Christians are attacked and prosecuted in Sudan, Iraq and Egypt. Their rights are taken away along with their dreams. They are often accused, and feel like strangers in their home countries. Therefore, many of them have decided to immigrate to the west seeking freedom of worship as well as the safety of their children.
Under such brutal and systematic attacks against the Coptic Christians in Egypt, it is important to think about establishing a Court that's specialized in sectarian disputes in Egypt, especially after the unprecedented escalating violence and crimes of collective aggression against the Christians in Egypt. Furthermore, their properties and churches have been attacked, demolished, robbed and seized. They were kidnapped for huge ransoms, and suffered from forced displacement. Moreover, many Christian minor girls are being kidnapped and forced to be converted into Islam.
Once again, Coptic Christians are killed in Egypt, just for a cross drawn on the walls of an Islamic school in Khosous, where some Copts were killed and their houses of worship and properties were attacked under the nose of the police.
To compromise is to make a deal or solve a problem between different parties where each party gives up part of their demand. In Egypt, to compromise means to have an agreement, typically when a party has to surrender in humiliation. It's more of a negative word than a positive one. However, in English, to compromise means to reach an agreement using more peaceful choices and showing more balance and tolerance.
Once again in a very confused street and lots of events over this week I have to think look for facts and write my conclusions but let us first see in a non chronological order what Egyptian streets were busy doing this week!
1. Obviously the never ending story of the attorney general still on reflecting …
2. Disrespect to judges and the whole Juridical system that started months ago preventing the court to adjourn its cases.
Persecution of the Copts continues to be very severe within the last days. From my point, we are yet about to see a series of persecution. I’m not trying to be pessimistic but I’m trying to analyze the reality. When there is no security, no law, no police, no justice, and no moral values, what we should expect?
I often receive this question from many Coptic Christians: Why do you defend the Copts? I always say: Because they are real Egyptians that are rooted in the Egyptian history. Furthermore, the Copts are wronged and prosecuted in Egypt, and they are suffering even more after the Islamic current political ascendency to power. However, I sympathize with the Copts as I simply refuse to hate the other people, only because they are different. Those who prosecute the Christians were likely to be prosecuted if they were born Christians. I mean that it’s all about human being and not certain religion.
Every day we find more evidence that the Muslim Brotherhood has cooperated with Hamas to attack Egyptian police stations and prisons on January 28, 2011, in which many leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood were set free including president Mohammed Morsy. Furthermore, more evidence is found that they have cooperated to kill the demonstrators in what’s called “Camel Battle”. Many people have a strong intuition that the MB with Hamas has committed such horrible crimes.
