My sister in California wanted a better life for her and her two daughters, explained Marianne Aziz, a 25-year-old pharmacist. There was a big fight between us and our Muslim neighbors over our parking place ... . They cut my brother-in-laws face with a knife.
Aziz said that after that incident, My sister felt she was no longer safe anymore. She got a hospital report on her husbands injuries and a police report and when they went to the U.S., she immediately [applied for] asylum.
Egyptian now ranks as the second highest nationality to receive asylum in the United States although it is uncertain how many are Copts because immigration statistics do not include religious affiliation, many of the asylum seekers are believed to be Christian.
The number of Egyptians receiving asylum in the U.S. has jumped more than five-fold in recent years. In 2010, the year before the revolution, just 531 Egyptians received asylum in the U.S.; in 2012, that number jumped to 2,882, according to the Department of Homeland Securitys statistical data for 2012.

The Coptic Christian Church is the longest continuous Christian fellowship on Earth, have been started by the Apostle Mark. The United States should welcome them. I think that they could add something positive to the American experience.
The horrors Coptic Christians have to tolerate in Egypt explain why President You Didn’t Build That has been handing billions of our hard-earned dollars to that sorry excuse for a nation.
No one is safe near muslims - even other muslims.
O heavenly King, O Comforter, the Spirit of Truth
who are in all places and fillest all things:
Treasury of good things and Giver of life:
Come and dwell in us and cleanse us from every stain,
and save our souls, O good One.
No one is safe when there are bearded savages around.
There is a Coptic parish and Egyptian population in our city. Some of the kids go to the Catholic high school. My kids have had Egyptian kids in their public school classes, both Christian and muslim. Nice kids. There is also a Coptic priest who goes on walks in my neighborhood.
These Coptic folks, and the Christian Nigerians we are getting now, are most welcome.
It's been open season on Christians since the"Arab Spring"!'
Obama “ Sorry aint got no time for second rate people of a second rate religion, I got a Caliphate to promote!”
If the roles were reversed, this would be called ETHNIC CLEANSING. But instead we call it the “Arab Spring”.
Here’s a group in the Middle East that really deserves arms and training.
Maybe we ought to send some small arms and train the Coptics in their revolt against the dictatorship of the Muslim Brotherhood.
I’m with you.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
America WELCOMES you dear brother and sister Christian Copts!
WE NEED YOU HERE!!
