Egypt: Salafis demand 62 Copt families leave their village

The last Christians in Kobry-el-Sharbat (el-Amerya) are to be forcefully expelled, making the town 100% Muslim.  This is not a pipe dream, this is the reality of Salafi influence and the widespread persecution of all Christians across Egypt since the "Arab Spring."  Copts are almost gone from Egypt and I fear once they are gone, the country will turn its attention towards their next batch of undesirables/

The Arab Spring is now the Islamic Winter.

Alexandria: forced eviction of 62 Coptic families by the Salafis

Cairo (AsiaNews / Agencies) - The radical Muslims are trying to empty a village near Alexandria of its Coptic population - 62 families, on the basis of unfounded allegations against a Copt. The Copts of Kobry-el-Sharbat (el-Amerya) were attacked on Jan. 27 by a crowd of some three thousand Muslims led by Salafi leaders who set fire to the Copts houses and shops. The violence were sparked by the allegations of a barber Muslim Toemah, who claimed that a Coptic tailor of 34, Samy Mourad Guirgis, had "illegal" photos of a Muslim woman on his cell phone. Mourad has denied the charges, and turned himself in to police in fear of his life. The Muslims set fire to his house and his shop, and his whole family was forced to leave the village. Mourad is still under police custody.

Since then there have been three "reconciliation meetings" in the police headquarters in el-Amerya, attended by representatives of the Coptic Church, the Salafis and the Muslim Brotherhood. According to police, the woman concerned has denied the whole story, and no compromising photos of any kind were found Mourad’s cell phone. But radical Muslims argue that "Muslim honor has been damaged," and at the first meeting, they refused any type of compensation for the Copts who were innocent victims of their violence.
