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