Five Coptic Christian Children in Egypt Imprisoned for 'Blasphemy' after Mocking ISIS

Five Coptic Christian children in Egypt remain in police detention nearly a week after a Muslim mob accused them of blasphemy for being featured in a circulated prayer video with their teacher that showed them mocking the Islamic State terrorist group.

In a recent report published by Fox News, it was revealed that angry Muslim mobs in the village of Nasreya in Minya recently gathered around the homes of five Christian students and chanted that they had "insulted" Islam.

The mob claimed that the students and their Coptic teacher were guilty of blasphemy, because their video mocked ISIS, a violent extremist group which has overtaken large parts of Iraq and Syria in an attempt to establish a caliphate, displacing and murdering thousands of Christians.

The report notes that while the teacher was arrested and questioned by police over a four-day period, the mobs threw rocks at the homes of the students and demanded that their parents turn over the children to local police.

According to Mina Thabet, a Coptic activist, the children and teacher remain in police detention nearly a week later, along with multiple other Christians who been targeted by Muslims.

"We have five Coptic Christian children charged with blasphemy and insulting Islam," Thabet explained. "We still have other open cases where Christians are charged with inciting violence as if they were the perpetrators, but where they were [actually] the victims."

The Minya Governorate, which was home to the 21 Coptic Christians who were beheaded by ISIS in February, has for the past several years seen ongoing attacks against the Coptic Christian community by Muslims. In April, Coptic Christians building a church honoring the fallen 21 Coptic martyrs in the village of al-Our were attacked by a Muslim mob, who also destroyed the construction using Molotov cocktails, sticks and stones.

According to Lora Moftah of the IBTimes, violence between Muslim and Christian communities in Minya has escalated since 2013, when Egypt's first democratically elected president Mohammed Morsi, who supported the Muslim Brotherhood, was deposed in a coup by the military.

Consequently, some supporters of Morsi believe Christians had a role in his overthrow and revenge attacks against the group, which make up 10% of the population, have become increasingly common in the southern Egyptian province.

"[Minya] lacks the development and projects needed to sap the energy of young people and protect them from people who exploit them in this kind of strife, such as the Muslim Brotherhood or other parties with particular interests," explained the province's security chief, Maj. Gen. Osama Metwally. "We are faced with many difficulties, most important of which is that people here have highly volatile temperaments, with full-blown sectarian strife almost erupting as a result of trivial disputes that nearly become religious catastrophes."

Todd Daniels, the Middle East regional manager for International Christian Concern, revealed that due to the corrupt nature of Egypt's judicial system, the five Coptic children will likely receive long prison sentences.

"The case of the five arrested in Minya and charged with blasphemy represents yet another case of how Egypt continues to bend to the weight of extremist ideology," Daniels told the Christian Post. "A video - not even shared publicly - that mocked ISIS, a group that openly beheaded twenty Egyptian citizens, has already put these five in prison and may lead to lengthy prison sentences. Despite progress in terms of rhetoric from [Egyptian] President [Abdel Fattah el-Sisi], Egypt has pervasive persecution that continues to occur not only on the societal level but also in the judiciary."

The nation of Egypt must have not received the memo that ISIS has no relationship to being Muslim ... as being reported on here ...... Strange.

ISIS has nothing to do with Muslims.

What is it you want Muslims to say about this sort of thing?

All this snide underhanded commentary, why don't you guys just come out and say plainly, without ambiguity exactly what you think.

If a Muslim or a group of Muslims comes out and condemns this sort of thing what would your response be? Is condemnation enough?

Because they can't. It takes courage to stand up and say what you believe in.

It must be very painful to hold all that fear and anger in. Worse, they can't even express it properly since anywhere else that tolerates this nonsense would take issue with their choice in a wife.

No matter what Muslims condemn this mess, it will never be enough...

So why will these children be imprisoned for years by the courts of a Muslim country ??? Just jay walking ?

The court system of Egypt will bring justice to the non believers. If the courts believe this that ISIS is " Muslim " and have these children. jailed for years for years..... then the entire country as a whole believes this . Possibly not every person but the majority .At least this is the mindset of the people running a Muslim nation .A law is in place to charge these Christians . A law is in place to send them away for years . To arrest them on this charge is proof that they (Egypt) firmly believe ISIS and their followers are Muslim .

Why are you asking me Lib? Am I Egyptian? Seriously. Why don't you go over there and ask them to explain it to you?

If the WBC or someone who thinks like you ran this country, what do you think the outcome would be?

And the Muslims here reading it, what are they doing?

Just say that you want to rid the US of Muslims. I'd at least respect you for it, instead of hiding behind empty rhetoric. If you're going to get banned, fall on your own sword since you believe it so much. Or you can take the coward's way out and keep doing what you're doing.
