Unequal rights toward women and honor killings



Egypt is the religious center of the Islamic world; it has the oldest Islamic university in the world. "As Egypt goes, so goes the Middle East", stated Mary Anne Weaver in her pre 9/11 book (printed 1997), The Rise of Militant Islam".  As the center of Islamic religious thought and trends, women beating and assaults in Egypt are at epidemic levels, as Islamic power grows in that country.  But women, Christians and secularists are fighting back to have 1., their inalienable rights recognized  2., to have them protected by law and by force. 

As women call for equal rights and protection for their persons, Egyptian Muslim men are increasing their assaults on a daily basis. This is reminiscent of the white attacks upon African Americans during the Black Rights movement in the 1960s, in the U.S.

As more and more African Americans in the 60s, went out publicly to call for equal rights, white men became more and more violent against them, including police, and government officials.

Similarly, these attacks against women may be the violent death throes of the ancient Islamic male dominated culture--where Mohammed sanctioned slave rape and wife beating--as Islam faces overwhelming global forces to give women more rights in Egypt and throughout the Middle East.

Similarly, honor killings are a way of life in Egyptian culture:


"The judicial system in Egypt seems to always give weaker sentences to men accused of murdering a female family member, giving them the benefit of “preserving their honor.” Some cases end up receiving as little as two to three years in jail instead of life, due to the judge sympathizing with the man," Stated Manar Ammar of bikyaMasr.com


This is a great source of information, photos and videos of the severe criminal problems facing Egyptian women by hordes of men assaulting women: crowds, police, government employees. It appears endemic to the Egyptian culture itself.

Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani letter to all who supported him & his stand for Christ



Not to us, LORD, not to us, but to Your Name be glory, for Your faithfulness, for Your loyalty…. Psalm 115:1
Salaam! (Peace be upon you!)
I glorify and give grace to the Lord with all my heart. I am grateful for all the blessings that He gave me during my whole life. I am especially grateful for His goodness and divine protection that characterized the time of my detention.
I also want to express my gratitude towards those who, all around the world, have worked for my cause, or should I say the cause that I defend. I want to express my gratitude to all of those who have supported me, openly or in complete secrecy. You are all very dear to my heart. May the Lord bless you and give you His perfect and sovereign Grace.
Indeed I have been put to the test, the test of faith which is, according to the Scriptures “more precious than perishable gold.” But I have never felt loneliness, I was all the time aware of the fact that it wasn’t a solitary battle, for I have felt all the energy and support of those who obeyed their conscience and fought for the promotion of the justice and the rights of all human beings. Thanks to these efforts, I have now the enormous joy to be by my wonderful wife and my children. I am grateful for these people through whom God has been working. All of this is very encouraging.
During that period, I had the opportunity to experience in a marvelous way the Scripture that says: “Indeed, as the sufferings of Christ abound for us, our encouragement abound through Christ.” He has comforted my family and has given them the means to face that difficult situation. In His Grace, He provided for their spiritual and material needs, taking away from me a heavy weight.
The Lord has wonderfully provided through the trial, allowing me to face the challenges that were in front of me. As the Scriptures says, “He will not allow us to be tested beyond our strength….”
Despite the fact that I have been found guilty of apostasy according to a certain reading of the Shar’ia, I am grateful that He gave the leaders of the country, the wisdom to break that judgment taking into account other facts of that same Shar’ia. It is obvious that the defenders of the Iranian right and the legal experts have made an important effort to enforce the law and the right. I want to thank those who have defended the right until the end.
I am happy to live in a time where we can take a critical and constructive look to the past. This has allowed the writing of universal texts aiming at the promotion of the rights of man. Today, we are debtors of these efforts provided by dear people who have worked for the respect of human dignity and have passed on to us these universal significant texts.
I am also debtor of those who have faithfully passed on the Word of God, that very Word who makes us heirs of God.
Before ending, I want to express a prayer for the establishment of an unending and universal peace, so that the will of the Father be done on earth as it is in heaven. Indeed, everything passes, but the Word of God, source of all peace, will last eternally.
May the grace and mercy of God be multiplied to you. Amen!

Youcef Nadarkhani

Coptic girls kidnapped


US professor says Coptic girls being kidnapped, forced into servitude in Egypt


“Others, like a young mother who testified before the Helsinki Commission last week, were snatched by violent strangers in broad daylight. Her would-be abductor shouted to bystanders while dragging her to a waiting taxi, ‘No one interfere! She is an enemy of Islam’,” said a report highlighting the new report."

Gavin Boby of Law and Freedom Foundation speaks in Brussels at the ICLA conference July 9 2012


Gavin Boby gives a stirring lecture on his legal battle against the building of Mosques in England: 

"Propagating Islamic doctrine--in a free society--is contrary to law... It's against civil and criminal law."

Gavin Boby sites the historicity of the Magna Carta and the development of Western Law.

Everyone fears the trial lawyers and court fees.  He’s turning the tide on the civil magistrate by holding them legally culpable if an act of terrorism occurs for their allowance of the building of the mosque.
