-Leading Candidate for Egyptian President: Christians Must "Convert, Pay Tribute, or Leave"

Just last year the Western main stream media was celebrating the so-called ‘Arab Spring’ as a move out of the darkness of tyranny into the light of Western style democracy. Mubarak is now gone and facing a life prison sentence. Meanwhile, the future of the Egyptian people is not near so lovely as the MSM envisioned last year.

The Egyptians are on the verge of taking their new found freedoms and using them to elect a new president who may well return them to dark ages of radical sharia law. Christians make up at least 10% of the population but they may be facing a future which is even worse than the weak back-handed protection afforded by the Mubarak administration.

Here are several quotes from Muhammad Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood presidential candidate, which indicates that there may be a coming crackdown on the Christian population if he wins the run-off election for the presidency of Egypt :

In one one interview Morsi is quoted as declaring that he will "achieve the Islamic conquest (fath) of Egypt for the second time, and make all Christians convert to Islam, or else pay the jizya (A tribute tax for non-Muslims)"

"They (Christians) need to know that conquest is coming, that Egypt will be Islamic, and that they must pay jizya (a tribute tax) or emigrate."

Meanwhile, Muhammad Morsi is publically campaigning, making assurances, and asking the Coptic Christian community for their votes in the up-coming election. However, neither candidate would seem to offer a good and clear choice for Christians in Egypt.

The other candidate is Ahmed Shafiq, the ex-premier who represents the military rule which has been running things since the over-throw of Mubarak. Under their rule in the last year conditions have been far worse than before for the Christian community and government authorities and the police have refused to protect the Coptic Christians from attacks by radical Islamists. So neither candidate for the president of Egypt would seem to offer a better future for Egyptian Christians.

Nevertheless, Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood is promising a more radical implementation of sharia law at least in private and his election would seem to be a game changer for the worse for the Christian population in Egypt. If he wins, look for the Christian community to lose many of their current freedoms and maybe even their right to vote in future elections.            *Top
