Assyrian International News, February 9, 2012, reports an example of the continuing plight of Christians living in Muslim-majority populated countries. In this case, Egypt’s new “democracy,” led by Islamists from the Muslim Brotherhood and Salafis, are evicting families because of a Copt (Christian), alleged to have taken a picture on his cell phone of a Muslim woman (although not consistently followed in Islam, the making of pictures is forbidden). The man has denied the charge as has the woman. The conflict has spread to all “dhimmis” in the area (non-Muslims living in Sharia states, of which Egypt has become since the ouster of Mubarak). A Copt allegedly fied a gun in the air while his house was being burnt down (he and his family were inside; but dhimmis are not allowed to own guns). “Reconciliation” meetings are attempting to resolve the issue, but for minority Christians living in Muslim controlled areas, reconciliation means how much are you willing to pay (or forfeit). Justice is defined by the Muslims, and truth seems to be irrelevant as the Muslims have threatened to expunge 62 Copt families from the area.
About The Author
I am a graduate of Southern Seminary in Louisville, KY, and the author of "Islam, the Cloak of Antichrist." This writing is an interpretation of end-times Bible prophecy using the Islamic Paradigm. The Islamic Paradigm interprets Islam to be the instrument through which the Antichrist wages his end-times conflict to gain dominion over the world (Revelation 13:7-8). Iran and Shia Islam is interpreted to be the primary instrument through which this end-times conflict is waged in the end-of-days. This writing is also a warning to Christians of the Bible's prophecies of difficult times ahead and how Islam fulfills multiple prophecies of the last days. "Jack Smith" is the pen name used for all posts and writings.
