FORT WORTH — Maria Wahba slept through her own party.

The baby, who was born at John Peter Smith Hospital six minutes after midnight on New Year’s Day, was the center of attention Friday afternoon as cameras gathered to take photos of Tarrant County’s first baby of 2010.

Mother Manja Daood joked that it took her two years to deliver little Maria: Her contractions started about 7 a.m. Thursday, in 2009, and didn’t end until just after midnight, she said.

Their names make them sound like Egyptian Copts, the orginal and authentic Eqyptians who make up almost 33% of Egypt (unofficially) and are Christian and heavily prosecuted.

I know it is a welfare hospital but I pray for the Egyptian copts who just want their homeland back from the invading and occupying Arabs.

It would be interesting to see the demographics of all of these “first baby of the new year” stories.

The media seems to be making over the “first” babies a lot this year. They must be under the mistaken impression that this is the start of another decade. They have a year yet for that.

Okay, now that Teddy’s gone can we stop his lottery visa program? (I mean, what a great idea, making lotto out of the opportunity for American citizenship...)

I wonder why they let them take it.

The Byzantines had exhausted themselves fighting the Persians. The Arab Muslims waltzed right in.

It happened more than a millenium ago. The collapse of the Roman and Byzantine Empires and the dissolution of their military might left the vast provinces and suzerainties exposed and defenseless. The Persians were also in decline around the same time. The fierce Mohammedan armies gained strength through conquests shortly after that, filling up the power vacuum left by the Romans and the Persians. The first lands to fall were those of the Christian Levant, including Mesopotamia and Egypt, the latter falling to the invading Mohammedans around 640AD.

The Dallas Morning News had a front page story of the first baby in Dallas county. Born at Parkland, the mother was 19 and can’t speak English. She followed her boyfriend her from Mexico less than a year ago. No doubt a birth at taxpayer expense and little doubt that she is not an American citizen.

Maybe it happened the same way we are being taken at this very moment

I have friends who are Egyptian Copts and they still have family over there; it is a very dangerous place for them, but they are elderly and want to stay in their homeland.
(and the medical care over there is awful he tells me...that’s the other reason he wants his parents to move here)

The Copts are terrorized daily over there.

And where did you say those big census gains for Texas came from?

California had one that could not speak English, and had 5 or 6 more at home, which I am sure were paying for also.

We get to pay their RENT, FOOD STAMPS, MEDICAL BILLS, UTILITIES and a check each month for cash to spend. Nice set up. :^)

No one is taking me over. The rest of them are cowards and want the Americans to come take back their land for them.

Also It didn’t help there was a huge rift between Constantinople and Alexandria over the use of icons.

I saw that but we are making progress.
last year the illegal who gave birth at our expense to her anchor baby was 15

I don’t get how the Dallas Morning news can keep acting like this is a good thing, taxpayers paying for yet another illegal.

I suspect 3/4 of them have unmarried parents

A demographic study would be interesting!

I think Coptic Christians make up about 10 percent-—I wish it were 30 percent.

And yes, they are being persecuted horribly by the Egyptian Muslims. Then again wherever Muslims exist, they persecute non Muslims. It is their creed to do so...like a pact with the devil

10% is the “official” census. By the church’s own estimate, based on their attendance records and their census they range anywhere from 25% to 33% of the population

Almost no one in the world believes the Egyptian government census. It is not even considered credible by that most uncredible of international bodies, the UN

I do not know how “credible” the CIA is but they report 10% - 9% Coptic and 1% other. Where do you get your figure of 30%? I would appreciate knowing.

CIA demographic figures are notoriously PC. They infact go out of their way to report official government figures.

A great example is Nigeria, where all independent sampling statuses have shown the Christians to be between 55-60% of the population but the CIA continues to use the old 40-45% number to avoid offending Nigeria

Malaysia is another great example. Muslims in Malaysia are under 45% (with the Indians, Chinese and Christians forming a majority) but the CIA continues to show Muslims as 50%+

Please keep in mind that this is the PUBLIC site of the CIA and can be read by anyone. As such this site is a DIPLOMATIC statement as opposed to a true research site. Anything written on that site is considered an official policy of the United States. Hence the PC nature of the site.

You can rest assured that the internal CIA analyses are far more accurate

Regarding the Coptic numbers, the most credible sources are either independent agencies that have done sampling censuses (as a true census is impossible) or teh Coptic church itself.

Keep in mind that hte Coptic church actually LOWERS its numbers to keep out of trouble from the Invaders. The last coptic church estimate was LOWERED to 14-20 million (true estimates are 20-25 million).

Even at 20 million that would form 25% of the Egyptian population, which is far higher than the 10% official numbers.

Very interesting. I appreciate that confirmation of my suspicions about the CIA as well as your analysis of the figures.

Thanks!

You are most welcome. If you want, go to the Wikipedia page about the Copts and “Religion in Egypt”

I am not asking you to trust Wikipedia but instead, the one good thing on those pages is that they list out all the independent organizations that have done surveys in Egypt.

Here is one last fact to leave you thinking. Till 1956, when Egypt was a democracy and had elections, Egypt ELECTED two Prime Ministers that were Christian.

If it was 95% Muslim (as the crazy Arabs claim) there was no way for that to happen
