FAMILY OF 4 SLAUGHTERED
New York Post ^ | 1/15/2004 | Lorena Mongelli

A family of Christians who fled persecution in Egypt ran into a bloody nightmare in Jersey City - where the husband, wife and their two daughters were found knifed to death in their home yesterday.

The bodies of Hossam Armanious, 46, his wife, Amal Garas, and their two youg daughters - Sylvia, 15, and Monica, 8 - were found gagged with their throats slit at 4 a.m. yesterday inside the green, two-story, wood-frame home they moved into five years ago.

Investigators were struggling to figure out who could have slaughtered the religiously devout family.

Jersey City Police Chief Robert Troy Said police are leaning toward the suspects being at least an aquaintance, after finding no sign of break-in.

"I don't believe it was random," he said. "They probably knew their killers."

'snip'

Rafique Iscandar, 51, who described himself as Armanious' best friend, said his pal also came (to America) because of the pressure of being Christian in the Muslim Egypt.

"They were afraid there," Iscandar said. "They are under siege by the government. We lived in fear."

Isn't death the prescribed sentence for leaving islam? I wonder if these people were always Christian or were once muslims.

I doubt the their former iman would have been able to afford a ticket to the US in order to pursue them.

I am not sure, but Jersey City is a heavily Muslim place.

The Coptic Egyptians have been more heinously persecuted than any other religion in history. If this poor family were Coptic, it would be no big deal to the entire Arab world.

That was my first thought. Hotel Islam --- you can check in but you can never check out.

"Iscandar said Armanious even joined with him in an effort to better the lives of his fellow Christians back in Luxor by working with a human-rights organization called the American Coptic Union."

This may have had something to do with it - The method of execution certainly points in a certain direction. Definitely not your typical Jersey City Home Invasion/murder

The only thing I want to say is the Islamofascist better keep this S**t out of the U.S. We are a sovereign country and their Cult of Death is not above the LAW here.
