The events took place in the small village of “Dmas” Meet-Ghamr, after a rumor spread around of a relationship between the 25-year-old Copt Shihata Sabri, and the sister of a Muslim man named Yasser Ahmed Qasim.
Yasser went to Coptic Shehata, holding a gasoline canister, poured it over him and set him on fire, as bystanders looked on in horror. The young Copt threw himself into the adjacent canal to try to put out the flames from his burning body. The fire left burns all over his body, leading to his death.

Following this incident, people in the village rallied and when the 60-years-old Sabri Shehata, father of the Coptic victim arrived, he was attacked by a group of Muslims stabbing him with knives and daggers; one stab penetrated his back to come out of his abdomen below the rib cage, resulting in his death, after being transferred to hospital.

A Coptic witness said that Yasser Ahmed, who is reputed to be a thug, and others have also beaten the Coptic victim’s younger brother, 22-year old Rami Sabri Shehata, causing a deep injury to his head.

The security forces moved into the village of Dmas, which has a population of 60,000 people, including over 1000 Copts, surrounded the victims’ house and deployed extra forces throughout the village.

The offenders were arrested together with the accused Yasser Ahmed Kassem and his friend, as well as the Copt Shehata Sabry who was held in custody in Dmas Hospital. The offenders were charged with deliberate homicide.

The body of Coptic victim Sabri Shehata was released for burial after prayers took place at the Church of Our Lady in the village of Dakados, which lies 20 kilometers from Dmas, amid a tight security siege.

A Muslim villager portrayed the incident as an honour killing stressing that it was because of Coptic Shehata Sabri teasing Yasser about a relationship he has with his sister, which prompted him and his friend to pour gasoline all over the Copt before setting him on fire. He denied that this incident will have an impact on the relations between the Muslims and Copts in the village.

The prosecution and the State Security Services are still investigating the incident amid media blackout.

Who are the Copts

 

 

In the time that Jesus was born, Egyptian as well as whole world (Jewish excluded) were pagan. The country was occupied by Romans. In year 60 AD, Apostil San Mark reaches Alexandria breeching the Holly Bible. In about 200 years, Egypt becomes a Christian country. The Church of Alexandria was one of the first five churches initiated by Apostils. So calling Egyptian Christians Arabs is wrong and unfair to them, its more appropriate recognize Copts with the Christians Egyptian native. Actually, Copts living in Egypt represents between 15-20% of the total living Population in Egypt.

Copts belongs to the Orthodox Church are more than 95% of the total Egyptian Copts. The remaining 5% are divided between the Coptic Catholic and the Coptic Protestant Churches. The Copts are by far the largest Christian community in Middle East.

The word “Coptic” is an English word and literally means Egyptian.

The Greek word “Egyptos” came from the ancient Egyptian words “Hikaptah” (Ha-Ka-Ptah). . The Arabs, after their conquest of Egypt in 641 AD called the population of Egypt “Gypt”, from the Greek word “Egyptos”

The known history of the Copts or Egypt starts with King Mina or Menas the first King, who united the northern and southern kingdoms of Egypt circa 3050 B.C. The ancient Egyptian civilization under the rule of the Pharaohs lasted for approximately 3000 years. Many Copts accepted the teachings of Christianity, possibly because the ancient Egyptian religions believed in life after death. This is evidenced by their elaborate efforts to preserve the bodies of the dead by embalming or mummification.

Like other early Christians throughout the Roman Empire, the Copts suffered from the persecution perpetrated against the new religion.

Many Copts shed their blood in testimony for Jesus Christ. Saint Mina or Menas is one of the major Coptic saints. He was martyred 309 A.D.

  1. Because Islam is such an “intolerant terrorist religion”, Muslims have murdered millions of Baptists and others over the centuries. The “crime” of these Christians was their refusal to also become murdering Muslims, they do the same with Copts, Jews, Buddistists, Hindus, and with members of all relgions. Why, to increase its numbers?
