Protest for Coptic Freedom in Vienna: Stop Killing Christians in Egypt!

By • on January 21, 2010

A demonstration took place in Vienna, Austria today which called for an end to the persecution of Coptic Christians in Egypt.  Approximately 2,000 people braved the brutally cold weather to attend and men carried six coffins signifying the six young men who were murdered on Christmas Eve.

While the OIC (Organisation of the Islamic Conference) tries to impose global heresy laws on the world to prevent the criticism of religion, Egyptian non Muslims feel the full force of religious persecution.  Where is the concerned voice of the OIC in the preservation of the ancient religion of Egypt, Coptic Christianity?  Of course the OIC is silent because all it cares about are the objectives of political Islam and its desire to become the religion of the entire world.  The OIC should end its charade; it claims to be concerned about human rights abuses but is unwilling to raise its voice when such abuse occurs in the name of Islam.  Can we therefore conclude that the OIC member states are a set of hypocrites who only care about their own narrow political agenda and do not care a jot for the interests of humankind and civilised values?

It must be remembered that the Copts inhabited Egypt before the Islamic invasion and descend from the majestic lineage that built the pyramids and played such an important role in helping found Western civilisation.  We hear so much about the illegal occupation of Judea and Samaria by the decedents of that region’s ancient inhabitants.  The ancient inhabitants of Egypt are a persecuted minority in Egypt.  Those of us who live in the West will suffer the same fate if our despicable political leaders continue their misguided pro sharia policy that proceeds under the disguise of multiculturalism.

It is surely time to stand up to real intolerance!
