Family Jailed for 15 Years~For Converting to Christianity!

You Just Can't Make This Stuff Up!
Living in the middle-east we are well aware of the systematic persecution of Christians. In every country (save one~Israel) Christians are slowly being eliminated. Under Islam, converting to another religion can result in jail or death. This is the reality,

On 14 January 2013, the criminal court of Beni Suef (115 km south of Cairo, Egypt) sentenced Nadia Mohamed Ali and her children Mohab, Maged, Sherif, Amira, Amir, and Nancy Ahmed Mohamed abdel-Wahab to fifteen years in prison. Seven other people involved in the case were also sentenced to five years in prison.

Born a Christian, Nadia had changed her religion to marry her husband Mustafa Mohamed Abdel-Wahab. After the man's death in 1991, Nadia decided to return to her religion of origins (to obtain her dues) and to convert her seven children.

After the conversion in 2004, Nadia and her children decided to replace their Muslim names on their identity cards with their Christian names and city of residence.** She was aided by seven Registry office employees. In 2006, one of her sons was arrested by police in an information center in the city of Beni Suef. Suspicious of the young man's documents (where he had changed its name to Bishoy Malak Abdel-Massih) police agents interrogated him for hours until he confessed his conversion to Christianity. The judges then decided to jail not only the woman, but all of her children and seven clerks from the registration office (who were responsible for changing the documents).

Conversions from Islam to Christianity were quite common in the past, but Nadia's case is just the beginning of the oppression of
Christians. The fact is, now that Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood have made Sharia law an integral part of the new constitution Christians in Egypt, Christian believers are at greater risk than ever.
** From an article by Daniel Greenfield: 
An individuals religious faith is listed in Egyptian identity cards. 

Christians, converted to Islam for various reasons that attempt to return to the religion to which they belong have enormous difficulty in correcting their names on the documents. This leads many people to forge them, risking prison. The reverse process, ie the transition from Christianity to Islam is not hindered, and in many cases is favored by the very Registry officials

Fortunately Obama is springing into action by sending the Muslim Brotherhood Islamist regime a whole bunch of F-16s....
