Egyptian Priests Warned: Convert to Islam or Be Killed

Mon, February 18, 2013

Recently in Safaga, Egypt, a town near the Red Sea, Christian priests from the local Coptic church reported to the local prosecutor that they were being threatened with death.

According to a February 10, 2013 report from the Arabic news site El Balad, yet another new jihadi group in Egypt calling itself Jihad al-Kufr, or Jihad Against Infidelity — that is, jihad against all non-Muslims, has been sending the priests “invitations” to enter Islam, or otherwise be killed.
