In rural areas, Egyptian Coptic Christians are constantly terrorized, while security forces turn a blind eye; Coptic girls are abducted and forced into Islamic marriages. Support for the Muslim Brotherhood and the Salafists was growing. The Salafist Nour Party in 2011 won a quarter of the seats in the Egyptian parliament.

What can you do?

  • Pray for those that are suffering extreme persecution by the Islamic Extremists groups
  • Pray that God would bring Justice and Peace to the region.
