Look where you have to go to get news of what’s happening to Christians in Egypt.
Ahmed Dia-el-Din, Governor of Minya has been extorting huge amounts of money from Coptic Christians. He demanded that families in the village of Saeed Abdelmassih come up with a million pounds or donate land to build a mosque in this place which has no Muslims. When they refused to pay, he ordered demolition of three homes, which was accomplished on Feb 28th. The governor is also threatening to demolish a Coptic community center (Mallawi Diocese) which serves for rehabilitation and education of special needs youth. So far, demonstrations and anger from the Coptic communities have forstalled this.
The Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights has reported 53 actions by Muslims against Copts from 2008 to 2010, Of 29 districts, the Minya governorate leads the pack with 21 incidents.
