The Egyptian Case - How churches are treated in Egypt?

Reader comment on item: Too Many Mosques?

Submitted by Egyptian Christian (Egypt), Sep 25, 2007 at 12:18

Do you know that Christians in Egypt needs the approval of the president of the republic to build a new church or to build a new room within a church?

Do you know that, in Egypt, to paint the walls of a church, we need the approval of the Governor?

And generally we do not get the approvals, even if we get the approvals, the fanatic muslim neighbours go and attack the buildings and rarely you will see any new church built in Egypt.

Do you know that in Egypt now-a-days there are almost every month an attack on a church or on a christian family home or car?

Do you know that almost everyday a christian woman disappear, in Egypt, some were raped and kidnapped and forced for islamization, under the approval of the Egyptian national Security forces and many we do not know where they are at all?

NB. The Christians of Egypt are very peacefull, never act aggressively or make terrorist attacks., or preached hatered.
