Dr. Ashraf Ramelah, President of Voice of the Copts and SION (Stop Islamization of Nations) Advisory Board Member, explains in no uncertain terms that jihad is the motive, the ideology behind the ongoing persecution and oppression of Christians under Muslim rule in Egypt.
Denial, obfuscation and dissembling only leads to more persecution and more death. The media and political elites must stop cowering before savagery. Silence is sanction.
The more you norm jihad and sharia, the more emboldened the slaughterers become. The idea that the world's leading Islamic university, Al-Azhar in Cairo, is demanding that Pope Francis declare Islam a religion of peace in the face of the unremitting slaughter of Christians in Muslim nations is monstrous, but typical of dictatorial Islamic supremacism and imperialism.
"In Egypt, Muslim attacks on Christians are based on jihad" By Dr. Ashraf Ramelah Israel Today,
June 12, 2013
Coptic Christians in Egypt continue to live with
discrimination, oppression and persecution from the Islamic majority.
Muslim attacks on Christians, random and unprovoked, are based on jihad
and often sanctioned by the state. Coptic victims are often hauled off
to jail for the crimes committed against them.
In 1,400 years, not one Egyptian Muslim authority – civic, social, or
religious has apologized, denounced, or condemned these actions.
Recently, the grand imam of Al-Azhar University, Ahmed al-Tayyeb, and
his diplomatic envoy, Mahmoud Abdel Gawad, requested that the newly
installed Catholic head, Pope Francis, issue a public statement
declaring that “Islam is a peaceful religion.” We wonder why the Pope
would choose to use prescribed words or succumb to urgings for
commentary. Will Pope Francis be influenced by the fact that Al-Azhar
made their request a necessary condition to resume relations with the
Voice of the Copts believes that the Al-Azhar grand imam instead
should issue a formal, public statement directed to his followers in the
Arabic language conveying an unequivocal message that Muslims attacking
Christians in Egypt do not conform to true Islam and will no longer be
tolerated. A clear denunciation of Muslim sectarian violence against
Christians in Egypt by Sunni religious leaders would be welcomed as
Al-Azhar seeks the Pope’s endorsement of Muslim non-violence.
Real peace comes from within
Favorable appraisals of Islam from leaders around the world, whether
formulated out of pressure, denial or appeasement, will never repair
Islam’s disreputable image — one earned through a long history of
aggression based upon a supremacy doctrine.
Islamic authorities at Al-Azhar must first be willing to acknowledge
that progress for Islam begins with their own steps toward equality and
A forced statement elicited from Pope Francis could never change the
reality of Islam, but only, at best, cause recognition of Islam as
something that in practice it is not.
