The Coptic question

Reader comment on item: Copts Pay the Price

Submitted by dhimmi no more (United States), Feb 1, 2011 at 07:45

Thank you Dr. Pipes for a very interesting analysis.

Anyone who is interested in reading about "Mulsim extremism in Egypt" then the book to read is Gilles Kepel's book under this title and yes he wrote it in 1984 but it still is as good as it can get in exploring the issue of radical islam before such issue became a concern of not just the Copts of Egypt but also Europe and the US. You can read the vile sermons of that vile man Shiekh Kishk and his vile diatribes against the Copts and you can read about sayyid Qutb. Kepel also explores such barbaric attacks by islamists on innocent Copts as in the case of the murder of Copts at el-Zawya el-Hamara in 1980 and we see the same happening now on a bigger scale as in the case of the police attacks on the Copts who were trying to build a Church in el-3Umaraniyya

I also suggest his book "Jihad the trail of political islam" which he wrote after the 9/11 atrocity and revisited the same issues that he explored in the above book

What was most amazing to me was reading that Hasan el-Bana the grandfather of Tariq Ramadan had his little final solution for the "Coptic probelm"! How disgusting

So what is the future of the Copts and their Church in Egypt. There is no doubt that any Copt who can get a visa to the US, Canada or Australia he/she will leave. There are now Coptic communities as far as South America. So I do see a reduction in the number of the Copts living in Egypt but their Church has survived for 1400 years of islamic imperilaism and it will go no where

The real question is how come our elected officials and politicians do not care about the fate of the Copts? I suspect that they do not care because they are ignorant about what is really the Coptic issue and how can we be the leaders of the free world when we do not care or know about let us say the Copts?
