Attacks on Christian churches in Egypt are subsiding as stage two of the jihad - profiting from the terror caused by stage one - is setting in.

Reports are emerging that the Muslim Brotherhood and its supporters are forcing some 15,000 Christian Copts of Dalga village in south Minya province to pay jizya - the money, or tribute, that conquered non-Muslims historically had to pay to their Islamic overlords “with willing submission and while feeling themselves subdued” to safeguard their existence, as indicated in Koran 9:29.

According to one priest from the area, all Copts in the village, “without exception,” are being forced to pay tribute, just as their forefathers did nearly 1400 years ago when the sword of Islam originally invaded Christian Egypt. In some cases, those not able to pay have been attacked, their wives and children beaten and/or kidnapped.

Pray for our brothers and sisters in Egypt and around the world who need strength, peace and comfort in these troubling times.

  1. It is horrible that women and children are being beaten or kidnapped in the name of religion. That seems to be the case with any false religious system, they seek to oppress women and children.

    I am concerned about the beliefs of the Coptic Christian, which is very much like that of Roman Catholicism. They lean very heavily towards a works based salvation as well as a liturgical type of worship, which is outward and ritualistic in nature. There's more about this religion at http://www.gotquestions.org/Coptic-Christianity.html
    Perhaps we should pray for salvation for them as well.

  2. Amen.!!!. Just as millions in America and around the world gravitate to T.D. Jakes, Joel Osteen, Rick Warren, Joyce Meyer... Pray for the multitudes that have a form of godliness but deny the truth, the power and The Word.
