from fides:

"The case which sees two children - one nine and the other ten - occurred in the village of Ezbet Marco, in the southern province of Beni Suef. In fomenting collective anger against the two boys is the sheikh Gamal Shamadai, known for his extremist positions ...

"The very wording of the complaint regarding the two boys contains, according to Bishop Fahim, controversial elements:
"Here in Egypt, the accusation of having destroyed the Gospel and of having urinated on its torn pages is at the center of the investigation concerning a Salafi sheikh, who carried out this sacrilegious act in the days when the Muslim anger exploded for the famous offensive movie against Mohammed produced in the U.S.A. Now, the very same accusation is reversed on two Copt boys. I hope that investigations are carried out correctly, avoiding not to take as evidence the rumors that have circulated ..."

The only "evidence" to date is heresay testimony by the Islamist Shiek Shamadai.

2. Muhammad is charged with promoting murder, rape, and destruction of people and property through his writings called the Koran.

3. Muhammad is charged with violations against women, minorities, Christians, and any person who is not Muslim leading to the deaths of 370 million people in the 1400 hundred year history of Islam.

If found guilty, Mohammad will be executed.

Quote, "For decades, the loudspeakers of some mosques hear insults against Christians, accused of being atheists." Unquote.
I assume they mean 'broadcast', not 'hear'.

I also assume the boys were merely detained while their parents were located.

The 'Arab spring' will only be successful when the principle of separation of church and state is understood and atheism and rationalism are fully respectable. Mind you, some even some 'Western democracies' have much progress to make in that respect.
