Brave Egyptian Christians Take a Stand Against Sharia!

Recently we have seen a pleasant uptick in cases of Christians taking a stand for Christianity, and against Islam. Hopefully this trend will continue and spread across the world.

Hat tip to the Muslims that demonstrated with them.

Egypt Christians call for right to build churches
Wednesday, February 3, 2010

CAIRO — Egyptian activists have protested in front of parliament and called for legislation giving Christians equal rights as Muslims to build houses of worship.

The demonstrators, both Muslim and Christian, were also protesting Wednesday against the sectarian strains in the country, particularly in light of a Christmas Eve slaying of six Copts and a Muslim guard outside a church in southern Egypt.

The government has maintained that sectarian harmony reigns in Egypt and said the Jan. 6 attack had no religious dimension.

Muslims need a municipal permit to build mosques. But Copts must get their papers signed by the president.

Ten percent of Egypt’s 80 million are Copts, who complain of being denied equal citizenship rights. Clashes do occasionally erupt.

From what I hear from several muz friends is that radical muz that are shaking the boat and causing all the troubles are intensly disliked by relatively gutless muz moderates that are terrified by the troublemakers. I guess it's up to the Christians to take them on. Evidently the Christians are getting tired of "turning the other cheek".

Exactly! But so does their zakat and all their claims that Islam is peaceful or that we are misunderstanding islam.

I just posted about zakat on a Facebook site: Sharia law: h8.17 The seventh category (of recipients of zakat) is those fighting for Allah, meaning people engaged in Islamic military operations for whom no salary has been allotted in the army roster (O: but who are volunteers for jihad without remuneration). They are given enough to suffice them for the operation, even if affluent; off weapons, mounts, clothing, and expenses (..<snip>.. the expense involved in supporting such people's families during this period, it seems clear that they should also be given it).

Christians have a ways to go yet in confronting Islam. These very welcome but tiny steps are but a beginning

where does Obama stand on this issue as he did not mention a single word regarding the Copts in Egypt. Copts are the direct decendants of the Egypts and hundreds of years later the Muslims invaded Christain Egypt and turned it into an Islamic nation.

Sir Winston Churchill

"Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it.

No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step…"

During the Pharoahs rule rule in ancient Egypt, all the land of Egypt turned to Christianity and ruled by Coptic Christians up until
the Muslim Arabs arrived and conquered forcing the Christians to convert to Islam, the same exact thing happened to Palestine when
Muslim Arabs arrived and conquered also forcing all Christians to
convert, this is a regular procedure, wherever they go they try to force the inhabitants to convert or face the inevitable, DEATH .

Bad Policy, and Bad Habit.

Here's one excellent live example, Britain or so called Great Britain,
Conquerer, Occupier, Ruler of many past several Countries, look at it now, it's been conquered, occupied, and ruled without firing a shot
it is the immigrants now and at this present time who tell the natives of the land who are non other than the Britishers themselves how to run the Britain, they are the Muslims are the real and true DICATORS of the land of BRITAIN.
The Ironic matter of the whole thing is: The British are so busy with their binge drinking and the whole Country itself is going to HELL also without firing one single shot to defend it.

My sources tell me that the common British are getting the idea. They…unlike their counter-part Americans are wising up to the invasion and loss of culture and society by the Islamics. Its the British leaders that are throwing the people under the bus for the sake of political correctness.
Here in the US…our leaders are doing the same. SOME are coming out and speaking up, and the muslims do what they have to do to silence them. Thats how muslim organizations get their power and thats how they get their money…and thats how the American people lose their freedoms.
