Islumic people have begun the conversions of the weak-minded.
But now I hear at times up to 15 cases coming from just one province, he said.
He estimated some 500 conversions since Mr. Mubaraks fall, 25 per cent of them involving underage Christian girls, some as young as 15, who end up being married off to older Muslim men.
Public conversions to Christianity are far rarer. Technically, it is not illegal for a Muslim to become Christian though under Islamic law it can be punishable by death. But in the handful of cases over the past decade, converts were imprisoned for insulting religion, threatening national security or other charges.
With communal feeling strong in Egypt, conversions are rarely seen as simply a matter of personal choice. Among Christians and Muslims alike, families are outraged when a loved one switches religion and often react violently. Questions of honour become mixed in when it involves a daughter or wife.

Extremely interesting article which quite clearly shows the hypocrisy of this religion of pure hate and racism:
