Egyptian Christians Seek Refuge In U.S. After Oppression Grows | Believers Radio

ICC Note:

“The fall of dictator Hosni Mubarak meant freedom for many Egyptians, but not for the nation’s Christian minority. It’s estimated more than 100,000 Christians fled the increased oppression in Egypt after Mubarak was ousted,” CBS reports.

2/21/2012 Egypt (CBS) – The fall of dictator Hosni Mubarak meant freedom for many Egyptians, but not for the nation’s Christian minority. It’s estimated more than 100,000 Christians fled the increased oppression in Egypt after Mubarak was ousted.

CBS 2′s Derrick Blakley talked with newly-arrived Egyptian Christians who are now making Chicago their home.

Maged Daniel, his wife Marian, and their two children fled Egypt for Chicago last October. That was eight months after Mubarak stepped down, and attacks against Christians increased.

“Post-Mubarak, the increase in kidnapping of girls, the increase in abuse of Christians, has increased dramatically,” Maged said through a translator. “The fanatics have come out more.”

The Daniels are members of the Coptic Orthodox Church, one of the oldest Christian churches on Earth.

Copts always felt discrimination in Egypt, but when Mubarak fell, so did the force that kept the most radical Muslim forces in check.
