The Copts were the original Egyptians...The ones that built the pyramids and a great civilization and culture. Look at it since the muslims have been in charge.....It is a laughing stock...a disgrace...a failed state.

The fact you're a bit next to the plate in your reasoning , Western ( their governments) have nothing to fück Christian minorities in the Middle East but they are a good excuse to fück the shit down, it only dates not just today , it dates from the famous crusades ! Take the example of Egypt , There are nearly 8 million Copts living there , 10 % of the Egyptian population, Copts in Egypt are the poor class of this country, a country which already has 40% of its population live below the poverty line, so I 'll let you imagine the precariusness this minority who live in slums and working mostly as rag pickers and scavengers . On the other hand , the Coptic diaspora ( living community abroad ) is among the richest in the world , it's not me who says it is the Times Magazine , it is quite influential economically , and even Egypt, Coptic elite holds some economic reins of the country . So nobody soucit the economic misery of the Egyptian Copts , who cares for their situtation , no their helps , even Copts themselves, but when you want to meddle in the affairs of Egypt, when we do not like that the Egyptians were elected , the , suddenly , the situation of Christians in Egypt is becoming alarming , during the reign of Mubarak, it is not cared for torture, misery strikes the egyptians in general, but that there's a change, the same speech threatened minorities on spring ! Religion has nothing even in there allows bitches has a hair desecrating churches in France and at the same time we fear for Christians in Egypt lolll and then just see that it is the same ploy everywhere, another example , Sudan and Darfur or famous Christians were supposedly murdered by the Islamist government in Khartoum , you will notice that speaks most and why? we managed to do divide Sudan into two , and especially to get the oil and natural resources found in southern Sudan , so today we are underway in Darfur, finally, as we have not found the oil the bottom.

'Churches Gain, Islamists Lose in Latest Draft of Egypt's Constitution
For the first time, right to build churches guaranteed in charter cautiously endorsed by Amnesty International.
Jayson Casper in Cairo [ posted 12/10/2013 11:22AM ]
Egyptian Christians will soon have a law to regulate church building. But this is only one achievement celebrated by Copts in the revised national charter scrubbed of most of its Islamist tinge.
"Christians have freedom of belief and practice," said Safwat al-Baiady, president of the Protestant Churches of Egypt and a member of the constitutional committee. "And for the first time in the history of Egypt's constitutions, building churches becomes a right."
Article 235 of the new draft constitution addressed this longstanding complaint, where permission to build or repair required presidential and security authorization.'

No one can argue that the Copts were the original Egyptians before Islam, but the Pyramids were built, long before Jesus Peace be upon him was born.
To be deceived is bad, deceiving oneself is a lot worse, for those wanting really to find the truth :
