“Democratic” Egypt Sends Apostates to Their Death
by Charles Cherry
“The Egyptians in revolt are asking for more freedom, but they also want the death penalty for those who convert from Islam to another religion. A major survey on the most populous Muslim country of northern Africa and the Middle East.”
A true “democratic” government in Egypt (the modern form of democracy, not the Greek form) will be a disaster for human rights.
In this form of democracy the majority makes the rules, and the majority in Egypt are Muslims who want Sharia or Sharia-informed laws (i.e., things like stoning for adultery and the death penalty for apostasy).
The democratic republic that the American fathers created, which is based upon the idea that all persons are created equal and are endowed with inalienable rights of life, liberty, etc., is not something that can be created in a Muslim-dominated country.
All those who are giddy about the uprising in Egypt, thinking it will usher in a new era of freedom and democracy, are naive and self-deceived.
Look for a mass exodus of Coptic Christians over the next few years as they become targets for extinction, just as the Chaldean Christians are currently being targeted in “democratic” Iraq.
