The Muslim Brotherhood recently destroyed 58 churches, Christian schools and other Christian installations in Egypt. The Washington Times recently reported this: “‘The Muslim Brotherhood were the ones who called for aggression [against Christians]. They are responsible,’ said the Rev. Khalil Fawzi, a pastor at Kasr El Dubarrah Evangelical Church, the largest evangelical congregation in the Middle East. ‘Either they are in control or they burn Egypt.'”
Yet the UK let Gomaa Amin into the country with no problem. But Pamela Geller and I, who have never called for or condoned any violence, are banned. Once again we see it: you can tell the truth about jihad in Britain, as long as you’re for it.
Only five days left. Please help us reach our goal and fight this madness. Please contribute to our legal fund to overturn the unjust ban on Pamela Geller and me entering the UK here.
And sign the petition asking that the ban be overturned here.
The new spiritual leader of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood is living in hiding in London in fear of state-sponsored assassination, it can be disclosed.
Gomaa Amin is understood to have been made head of the Islamist organisation last week following the arrest of his predecessor in Cairo by Egypt’s military rulers.
Mr Amin, 79, had flown to London about two months ago for medical treatment and as a result escaped detention when the army seized power in a bloody coup.
He is now residing at an undisclosed address from which he is trying to orchestrate the Muslim Brotherhood’s response to the coup.
The presence of Mr Amin in London is a potential headache for British authorities who may be obliged to provide protection for such a senior and controversial figure.
The Muslim Brotherhood supports a caliphate, a unified Islamic state under Sharia law, and has been accused of fuelling religious tensions in the Middle East, particularly with the Christian minority.
Attacks on Christians in Syria and Egypt are highlighted in a new interview with Lord Sacks, the outgoing Chief Rabbi, who spoke of his grave concern for the religious minority.
“I think this is a human tragedy that is going almost unremarked,” Lord Sacks says in an interview with the Telegraph.
“I don’t know what the name for this is, it is the religious equivalent of ethnic cleansing. We are seeing Christians in Syria in great danger, we are seeing the burning of Coptic churches in Egypt.
“There is a large Coptic population in Egypt and for some years now it has been living in fear. I think sometimes Jews feel very puzzled that Christians do not protest this more vociferously.”
Lord Sacks”s comments – while not directly aimed at the Muslim Brotherhood which describes itself as a non-violent organisation – will turn the spotlight on the Brotherhood’s Egyptian leaders, who appear to be making the UK their base in exile.
There will may be concern that Mr Amin’s residency in London will attract militant Islamists. In the 1980s and 1990s, Britain largely operated an ‘open-door” policy allowing extremists to live in exile in London to escape persecution from authoritarian regimes in the Arab world….
Mr Amin, a father of three, has been an official member of the Muslim Brotherhood since 1951 and for many years has been pursued by the Egyptian authorities….
He was a vocal supporter of the Arab Spring and actively voiced calls for Sunni Muslims, who predominantly support the Muslim Brotherhood, and Shiites to unite against “a single enemy who [is] American Zionist”….
