Egypt: Islam Threatened by the Right to Choose Religion...

In the dilapidated office here of three lawyers representing one of Egypt’s “most wanted” Christian converts, the mood was hopeful in spite of a barrage of death threats against them and their client. At a court hearing on May 2, a judge agreed to a request by the convert from Islam to join the two cases he has opened to change his ID card to reflect his new faith. The court set June 13 as the date to rule on Maher Ahmad El-Mo’otahssem Bellah El-Gohary’s case, and lawyer Nabil Ghobreyal said he was hopeful that progress thus far will lead to a favorable ruling. At the same time, El-Gohary’s lawyers termed potentially “catastrophic” for Egyptian human rights a report sent to the judge by the State Council, a consultative body of Egypt’s Administrative Court. Expressing outrage at El-Gohary’s “audacity” to request a change in the religious designation on his ID, the report claims the case is a threat to societal order and violates sharia (Islamic law). “This [report] is bombarding freedom of religion in Egypt,” said lawyer Said Faiz. “They are insisting that the path to Islam is a one-way street. The entire report is based on sharia.”

  1. Mohamedanism is an insecure cult. It thrives on forcing people to belong to it. Once this compulsion is lifted, people will leave the cult in droves. After all who wants to follow a paedophile?

    Mohamed was an Arabian merchant who loved to molest young girls. When he was aged 53, he married the 6 year old daughter of his best friend and had sex with her when she turned 9. According to the late Ayatollah Khomeini, Mohamed had sex between his child bride's thighs when she was 6.
