Egypt: Christian Girls Kidnapped and ‘Sold’


Pages: 1 2

Two teenage Coptic girls, cousins, were recently kidnapped and then “sold” in Minya, Egypt—the same region where a Coptic church was recently attacked and desecrated. I tried to find this story in English-language media and, as expected, found nothing, except for one report in Al-Masry Al-Youm titled “Clashes between police and Coptic protesters in Minya”—as if that’s the important story (as usual, the media prefers headlines portraying harried Christian minorities as equally culpable as their Muslim persecutors, thereby justifying use of the preferred phrase, “sectarian strife“).

At the end of the Al-Masry Al-Youm report, we get a trailing sentence alluding to “claims” that two Christian girls “were abducted by Muslims and forced to convert to Islam” as the reason why Copts were demonstrating and clashing with the police in the first place.

One must again turn to Arabic sources for the telling details. I have put together the following narrative and quotes based on these two Arabic reports:

The two girls, Christine Azat (aged 16) and Nancy Magdi (aged 14) were on their way to church Sunday, June 12, when they were seized. Their abductors demanded $200,000 Egyptian pounds for their release. The people of the region quickly put their savings together and came up with the ransom money; but when they tried to give it to the kidnappers, they rejected it, saying they had already “sold” the girls off to another group which requires $12 million Egyptian pounds to return them.

      Your so pathetic like Jews are going around the world wrecking havic on every place it lands!!! They are actually productive to the society they live in unlike Muslims who pollute every place they live (generalizing here so bare with me). You guys hate the jews we get it!!!!! But we dont care what your background is we are just tired of the crap you cause so many people, nations, in this world. Anytime in the history of Islam its been nothing but evil coming out of your little god Allah and his perverted prophet MoHO. We are tired of your sick God allah and his cruelty to humankind esp women and children!

      DeShawn. You are a piece of work. People like you spend all your worthless lives putting your equally worthless hatreds into the world. Do something meaningful for once, get a job, donate your time to a shelter, get a dog, but other than that, shut the hell up. Your hate for everything Jewish and meaningful is boring and fasicist to boot.

      I don't read Jeff Rense anymore. He is a Jew Hater. Link to somebody reliable.

    • Cath

      What does that prove? That "all have sinned and come short of the glory of God?" What do you think the Old Testament and New Testament is all about? It is about rebellious sinful jews who keep denying Christ as their Messiah/Saviour. Now, who's the hypocrite? Put down the stone!

    • http://vnnforum.com DeShawn

      Yeah, first off, I'm not even Muslim; I'm Christian, you know, the religion based around that guy you people slaughtered. But I sympathize with what you do to the Palestinians and the Muslims through your Zionist wars. Also, I am SELF-EDUCATED on the jewish question, with some help from the folks at VNNForum. Try all you want, but you can't deny the jewish role in exploiting the black man when it suits you. Your media pumps filth into our community and promotes a lifestyle of decadence and dependency. You USE our black talent to make a buck. The jews were also the PRIMARY people behind the African slave trade to the Americas (see the The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and jews).

      Plus you're bankrupting this country to fight wars for racist Israel and are promoting race mixing and immigration to breed the white race out of existence. So you see, everyone has it in for you. What's the word you people use, chutpah? Yeah, chutpah is believing that the entire world is somehow "crazy," "hateful" and "anti-semitic" when it is YOU who have been kicked out of countries hundreds of times and are hated world-wide. Think about that, because we goys aren't gonna sit down and take it anymore.

      • John

        You are no christian!!! You are a filthy hypocrite who despite of all the filth that muslims do, you try to defend them and point your finger to blame Israel. At least Israel is a democratic country, it has muslim arab kenesset deputies… So just shut up your evil mouth and stop spewing hatred towards the only country that has real human rights in all the middle east. All our christian brothers in the middle east are suffering from the evil Islam, and you and your filthy hypocrite lefty friends are trying to demonize Israel. Let me tell you something, I'm a christain arab and i respect the jews very much for all their contribution for the world, and the filthiest shoe of the filthiest jew in this world is better and cleaner than muhammad and Allah. Viva Israel, Viva USA and all the free world, and you are just helpless piece of junk like your muslim friends…..

        • John

          Ohhh by the way the only people who traded slaves and still trading slaves are the muslims…. The muslims used to sell slaves to the whites and NOT THE JEWS…. and your hero that filthy guy called Jeff Rense is a liar anti semite who is being paid from the oil money…
          The only countries in the world that still don't want to sign the U.N anti slavery treaty are the muslim countries (your friends)… Slavery still exists in Sudan,somalia, arabia, malasyia,indonesia etc….

            To DeShawn, this is what was written by ,Ibn Khaldun 1332–1406 AD. Muslim historian,scholar,theologian and statesman." The Negro nation are ,as a rule ,submissive to slavery because Negros have little that is essentially human and have attributes that are quite similar to those of dumb animals,as we have stated " Now see http://www.jihad-watch.org

            John," ohhh by the way the only people who traded slaves and still trading slaves are the muslims……" You are 100% right , it is so unfortunate that ignorent BLACK peoplec like DeShawn don't know their own history ,they have been brainwashed by muslims in believing it was the Whites or Jews who carried out slave trade of Africans. Please go to You Tube and type in " john alembillah azumah" or " The arab muslim slave trade of africas,the untold story" " …called Jeff Rense is a liar…. Slavery still exists in Sudan,Somalia,Arabia,Malaysia ,Indonesia etc…" You are right . And in Mauritania it is estimated 750000 Black Africans slaves are owned by Arabs to this day.

        Well if you're a Christian as you claim, from what I know of the teachings of Yeshua, I'm pretty sure He's ashamed of you and your behavior because He didn';t teach those things you spew out constantly. If you think only the Jews were responsible for the death of Yeshua, that G-d Himself foreordained, then you certainly haven't read Acts 4:27-28. I know you won't spend the time to look it up because your will not to believe is far stronger than your will to educate yourself and rid yourself of your demonic hatred for G-d's people. Whoever is teaching you your belief system I'd dump them in a hurry.

Zionist have never declared war on Palestinians or Muslims first, just google " Resolution181 Of The United Nation" and read it please. " Try all you want…the Jewish role in exploiting the blacks man when it suits you" This shows how thick the blacks are if they let themselves be exploited.
        The Jews were also the PRIMARY people behind the African slave trade to the Americas…" I VERY STRONGLY suggest you and other here to go to YouTube and type in " Joha alembillah azumah" and also " The arab muslim slave trade of africas,the untold story " I pity BLACKS naive like you who don't know their own history,shame on you.

      Let's not forget to mentions the THOUSANDS of Filipino and Indian women who are lured to the ARABIC peninsula with promises of " Jobs" only to be forced to work as SEX SLAVES

      Last but not look at how the Northern Muslim Sudanese ENSLAVED their Southern CHRISTIAN brethren through Abductions which led to Civil war and the SOUTH VOTING TO FORM THEIR OWN NATION

      Yes Israeli sex slaves you say? How about look at the Sex slavery that has existed in Islamic lands a cool 1400 yrs before Israel became a nation ( again)

      Look at what the Islamic world has accomplished, the most ignorant, backward, violent and poor populations on the planet. They have no one to blame but the thieving, murdering, serial rapist MO and his sock puppet god allah.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    My question is why is our federal government and our lamestream media in their infinite wisdom hiding the reality that Christians and all other non-Muslims living in every Muslim majority country in the world are violently oppressed and systematically persecuted when not outright slaughtered altogether without exception, at the same time that they also try to convince us that Islam is a so-called Religion of Peace™ that is being hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists?

    In our federally controlled public school system, how many students are taught the truth about Muslim violent oppression and systematic persecution of all Christians and other non-Muslims that takes place every day in all Muslim majority countries in the world without exception? How many public school students are taught that Christians and other non-Muslims living in Muslim majority countries are forbidden from building new houses of worship and from openly practicing their respective religions, and that in stark contrast Muslim immigrants living in the West are perfectly free to build thousands of mosques and madrassas and to openly practice Islam, at the same time that the majority of those Muslim immigrants living in the West just like clockwork flat out refuse to assimilate and integrate and instead form Muslim segregated no-go zones ruled by Sharia as parallel societies within societies and in direct contravention of the laws of the states in which they reside?

    Indeed, why is the US military still deployed in Muslim majority countries foolishly trying to win the hearts and minds of Muslims that are obligated per Islam to have nothing but enmity in their hearts for unbelievers?

    Obviously, there is something very wrong with our federal government and the lamestream media. They are supposed to protect and defend the constitution and defend freedom. However, they have clearly lost sight of that requirement and in fact are in dereliction of their duties and responsibilities.

    • Supreme_Galooty

      Today's American liberals are the EXACT same people as Mao, Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, et alia who piled up the bodies in their respective countries all in the name of the "greater good." They would happily do the same here – starting with Christians – if they thought they could get away with it.

      The problem for them is that America is gradually re-awakening – AND we are armed!

    Government and media cover for Islam. Government and media are master propagandists for Islam. They aid and abet the burnings of non-Muslim homes and churches, Muslim barbaric atrocities, mass murders and kidnappings of non-Muslim innocents by NOT reporting them.

    Abduction and Forced Islamization of Christian Coptic Girls Continues in Egypt

    (AINA) — The systematic abduction and forced Islamization of Coptic minor girls in Egypt is a frequent, dangerous and a rapidly escalating phenomenon. Coptic Pope Shenouda III, December 17th, 1976: “there is pressure being practiced to convert Coptic girls to embrace Islam and marry them under terror to Muslim husbands” and demanded that the abducted girls be brought back to their families.

    Abductions are done in cooperation between Saudi-funded associations and the Egyptian State Security.

    …in the majority of cases, the State Security is the one who masterminds the kidnapping plans.” http://www.aina.org/news/20090811125748.htm

    In the Bible, G-D gives the death sentence for kidnapping. The U.S. gifts Egypt with 2.2 billion dollars every year.

  • mcrobbins

    Have you noticed how the Islamists are becoming increasingly outrageous? They OPENLY support every crime to further their cause: kidnapping, slavery, violence, and murder. Mrs. Mutairi of Kuwait thinks the jihadists should capture infidels girls in the Caucasus. Why does this creed attract the most sociopathic elements? Why does it lead to the moral degradation of societies? Could it be that their prophet was a sociopath?

    I believe it was Dostoevsky that said without God, all is possible. He saw the increasing atheism as contributing to the moral disintegration of society. However, in Islam, with their hyper-nominalist deity, all is possible too.

  • Lightning Jack

    Basically Egypt's post-Mubarak government, if you can call it that, has failed to maintain order, enforce equality and human rights mandates, or contain discrimination and unwarranted persecution of non-Muslims in Egypt.

    Since Coptic Christians and non-Muslims have absolutely zero rights or protections under the existing provisional government, they must band together and form a coalition thereby establishing their own security and defensive forces… outside of Egyptian "Sharia" law. Once again, we see what happens to tolerance and basic human rights when Islam reins supreme.

    The continued discrimination and persecution of Coptic Christians in Egypt will inevitably reach the point to where they have no choice other than to begin a campaign of covert armed resistance against their oppressors.

  • tramky

    All kinds of groups in the world are persecuted, subjugated, slaughtered, And the world stands by & watches it happen. This is no different. But Islam is a different thing altogether. Islam is NOT a religion, is an political ideology falsely veiled in 'faith', whatever that is. Most of the social & political problems in the world involve Islam & Muslims, though certainly the Muslim world is NOT the only place where horrible things happen.

    The difference with Islam is that its proponents live their daily lives committing what would be felonious crimes under norms of Western civilization & laws.

    oh really?!! read the truth.
    "The Coptic families of two female converts to Islam, Christine and Nancy, rallied before the ‎office of the prosecutor general Saturday, calling for custody of both young women.

    After conducting preliminary investigations with the girls, the general prosecution asked the security forces to provide ‎them with a safe house until an Al-Azhar scholar can test whether the story of their ‎conversion is true.‎

    Their families, however, called on the authorities to hand them the girls or let a ‎Christian charity organisation be responsible for them, saying Al-Azhar does not accredit ‎conversion to Islam from anyone younger than 18.‎

    The two girls, both 14 years old, ran away from their homes in Minya months ago. A ‎policeman saw them walking in the street wearing the face veil and with crosses ‎tattooed on their hands, and accordingly stopped them and investigated.‎"

  • jewdog

    Great to see that FrontPage features Raymond Ibrahim.
    I think that much of the reason for the West's lack of interest is simply that most Western Christians have no experience or history as a persecuted minority and therefore have a hard time identifying or empathizing with their co-religionists in Islamic countries. They need to wake, though. Ask not for Whom the Bell Tolls…

  • Tanstaafl

    Mohammed was both a slave owner and slave trader.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    The Slavery is forbidden in Islam, that's why the Muslims who exercise the slavery are doing double crime and they should be subjected to double sentence.

    Slavery is forbidden in Islam? What are you smoking? Muhammad waged jihad on all the infidels in the Arabian Peninsular, slaughtered the men and then enslaved the women and children. Indeed, it’s how he made his living, and whatever Muhammad did, the most perfect Muslim that ever lived and the perfect model for emulation, is piously sanctioned in Islam. In fact, it was the Muslims that ran the slave trade for centuries and Muslims enslaved both blacks and whites alike, and it was white females that brought the highest prices in the Muslim slave markets. As a matter of fact, they were only finally forced to abandon slavery in the 1960s, only they never really did abandon slavery, as in many Muslim countries today such as Sudan, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, etc., slavery is still very much in practice. Because Muslims consider non-Muslim infidels to be subhuman, to Muslims owning human slaves is like owning livestock. Lay off the crack!

      Only all unbelievers and females! Anyway, per the sixth and most important pillar of which Islam stands, which makes it an obligatory duty in Islam for each and every Muslim to fight in the cause of Allah, I’m likewise fighting jihad as well, only in the cause of freedom instead, and just like all jihads that Muslims are currently waging today are permanent, my jihad is also permanent, as I won’t stop until Muslim immigration to the West has been banned and reversed. But I won’t just stop there. Indeed, I will also never stop waging my personal jihad until the oilfields in the Islamic world have been seized, their oil wealth confiscated, and the Islamic world isolated and rendered into crushing poverty. In other words, I will never stop waging jihad until the Islamic world have been rendered incapable of waging jihad. Allahu Ackbar!

      By the way, I never generalize.

    You fools. Jesus may peace be upon him spoke Aramaic. The Aramaic word for God is Alaha. You FOOLS. You brainwashed fools. While you have *cough* emancipated, your kin was waging wars in the middle east, coming back home from their crusades. Getting rich of slavery in the Americas. You worship a cross which was created by the Romans and has nothing to do with Jesus. YOU FOOLS. You will have eternity to be ashamed!

    "Christianity destroyed for us the whole harvest of ancient civilization, and later it also destroyed for us the whole harvest of Mohammedan civilization. The wonderful culture of the Moors in Spain, which was fundamentally nearer to us and appealed more to our senses and tastes than that of Rome and Greece, was trampled down (–I do not say by what sort of feet–) Why? Because it had to thank noble and manly instincts for its origin–because it said yes to life, even to the rare and refined luxuriousness of Moorish life! . . . The crusaders later made war on something before which it would have been more fitting for them to have grovelled in the dust–a civilization beside which even that of our nineteenth century seems very poor and very "senile."–What they wanted, of course, was booty: the orient was rich. . . . Let us put aside our prejudices! The crusades were a higher form of piracy, nothing more! The German nobility, which is fundamentally a Viking nobility, was in its element there: the church knew only too well how the German nobility was to be won . . . The German noble, always the "Swiss guard" of the church, always in the service of every bad instinct of the church–but well paid." Friedrich Nietzsche
