The founder of an international group of advocates for the equality and rights of Coptic Christians is appealing to the leaders of democratic nations to cut any ties with Egypt. The Voice of the Copts is attempting to thwart President Mohamed Morsi's regime from implementing a primarily Islamic-based constitution.
"We demand that world leaders withdraw their recognition of Egypt's phony 'pro-democracy' leader, Mr. Morsi, who is backed by the illegal Muslim Brotherhood party," states Dr. Ashraf Ramelah, president of Voice of the Copts, in an open letter sent Monday. "Freeze your political relationships with Egypt, halt all investments and aid to Egypt and force Mr. Morsi's regime to step down. This will facilitate legitimate democratic goals yet to be achieved by Egypt's freedom fighters."
Coptic organizations around the world, including the U.S.-based Egyptian Front for National Salvation and Coptic Solidarity have been issuing similar demands since Morsi issued a new constitutional declaration in which he arrogated to himself sweeping powers, and enabled himself to be shielded from legal challenge through the courts.

Were we rational, we would cut ties with every Muslim country.
Cut ties? Obama/Hitlery’s foreign policies created Morsi’s Egypt!
But they,like Morsi,don't have a lot of use for Christians.Well,the *genuine* variety at least.
I'm sure 0bama will call his friend Morsi to straighten all this out...after his vacation in HI.
... ‘pro-democracy’ leader
Why the ‘scare quotes’? The majority of Egyptians are Muslim and consider the Copts to be second-class infidels.
In democracy, the majority rules. Protection of the rights of minorities was one of the many reasons that the Founders did not establish a democracy.
The US has advance policies unfavorable to foreign Christians for quite some time. For example, when the US supported Indonesia’s annexation of East Timor in 1975, about 185,000 Catholics met an early grave. US foreign policy has had a similarly adverse effect on Christians in the Iraq recently.
US foreign policy is not all sweetness and light, regardless of which party is in power.
Many cops are requesting asylum here... This administration had better open our gates for them ..this mess the THEIR fault
