Political Islamists reject secularism claiming it came to fight the Christian priesthood, which Islam doesn’t have. They claim secularism was founded to fight the domination of the Church of Rome over every aspect of life. Thus, they claim there should be no contradiction or separation between religion and politics.
Nine years ago, on September 23, the late Eng. Adly Abadier had invited the Coptic activists all over the world to participate in a Coptic conference in Europe that was entitled: "Copts under Siege", which aimed to unify the Coptic work and effort to claim their rights and equal citizenship with the majority of Muslims in Egypt.
You were born in a Christian, Jewish, Muslim or even a Hindu family within Indians and were taught Indian traditions and religion so you believe in the Hindu religion! Can I or you or the best religious clerics and priests convince you to change your religion?
Finally after 2 months of the June 30th Revolution, Obama has announced that Morsy was governing Egypt in the wrong way. After just 2 months passed by, Obama gave up in return of the Egyptians' will, although all the pressures were practiced by America and their allies. Obama would never reach this conclusion without being sure with his administration that there was no way to keep supporting terrorism in Egypt.
For more than eighty years, the successive regimes in Egypt couldn’t eliminate the idea of political Islam that Hassan al-Banna came up with. He claimed this idea is serving Islam, but in fact, it was to achieve the political goals of the Muslim Brotherhood, which appeared clearly when his sons came in power.
I have a proposal for all who love Egypt, especially the Copts. As the state is taking forever to repair and rebuild the demolished and burned churches and properties of the Copts, why don’t we donate for their restoration?
What is happening to the Copts in Egypt, especially in Upper Egypt has reached its peak. I am talking here about burning their historical churches (86 churches and 11 monastery) and killing many Copts after looting and destroying their properties and forcing them to sell it for much less price and to abandon their homes fearing for their lives.
Burning churches and imposing loyalties against the Coptic Christians in Delga village in Upper Egypt by the fanatics is really worrisome. The village is currently controlled by the Islamists who threaten the Copts by killing and kidnapping their families if they don’t pay certain amounts of money. Consequently, the Copts prefer to pray inside their homes instead of churches. Additionally, the Islamists threatened to sexually abuse the Coptic women!
Few days back the government officials -without specific names- announced their inability to apply the maximum income law that was a proposal to help the government to find funds to help poor people that according to the minimum standards should not have less than x amount of monthly income for a minimum dignity!
Can you imagine that while you are talking to your friend he is recording the conversation that happened between you two? Not only that but furthermore, he sends the conversation to the newspaper and the newspaper publishes it for the public to see?
On the eleventh of September 2001, the United States received a massive slap to her dignity and national security. It was a barbaric fierce attack against her civilization and power centers in New York, killing about 3 thousand innocent American citizen.
Sound religion has its positive effect on the individuals and the community as well. However, being deviated can cause many problems for both. Christianity define sound religion as: "To look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world". In the middle ages, the Catholic Church deviated and worked in politics rather than religion causing many disasters.
It became so clear that the American President, Barack Obama, made up his decision to fight Syria. This appeared after the revolution of June 30 in Egypt through may statements by the American Administration. Many times did Obama assured that such war comes to preserve the American interests and prestige in the region.
Imposing emergency law firmly in Egypt comes to protect us from terrorism of the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamic currents and Jihadists.
During the war against terrorism, the state has to impose some restrictions for freedom of movement as well as freedom of peaceful assembly that are currently used to murder innocent people and attack public and private properties.
Can we build a new Egypt with the same mentalities that took Egypt to the deep deep hole we are in it now? Can we build over a country that old mentalities demolished? This question needs to be looked at deeply with great consideration without the fears of being accused of any crime or being part of a conspiracy we need to look forward and really forget the past wounds just learn from the mistakes and correct what needs to be corrected!
It all began in December 1955 when Rosa Parks, an African American woman who was riding a crowded bus refused to give up her seat to a white passenger. The bus driver summoned the police. Parks was arrested and charged with violation of the segregation law of Montgomery City.
• The Muslim Brotherhood promised to burn Egypt on August 31; however, they could do nothing. They and their friends should be ashamed now. I salute the valiant armed forces and the heroes of the police, as well as all souls of their martyrs.
Supporters of the revolution of June 30 realize how many people and forces hate it and are willing to destroy it at any time. Those enemies are both inside and outside Egypt.
In this article, I ask the Minister of Defense to do us a favor, which is pretty much his duty to perform. The Egyptians have been really amazed by him as they have been missing such honest and patriot people. Yet, by removing the Muslim Brotherhood from power, he only performed his duty and obeyed his religion that orders him to be honest.
It became clear that the American scheme to divide the Middle East to small countries based on religion, sects and races has been failed, after the great revolution of June 30 in which president Mohamed Morsy was ousted and a public mandate given to Egyptian government to fight terrorism. Consequently, many senior leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood were arrested on serious charges of murder and inciting violence including setting around 80 churches on fire and attacking many properties of the Copts.
R.I.P. My mother used to scare me when I was a child! Which mother did not terrorised her child or do not terrorise them? One of our more common terrorist is our own father -I'll tell your father what you did, he will deal with you!- fathers are not monsters but even in the far south of Egypt, where tradition is like bread and water in those communities and girls who are not a full human being in most illiterate Egyptian minds had to blindly obey orders and the day she defects she has to be KILLED specially when it comes to honour; She fail in love with some one the family do not accept for some reason, he is still learning, he is not independent, he belongs to a family enemies to our family or what ever reason could be as well different religions! And what a catastrophe if she becomes pregnant without marriage!
