Published on August 1, 2013 by ‪‪‪‪‪JewishNewsOne

Egypt's Coptic Christians continue to face persecution from the country's Islamist majority, many of whom have been undertaking a campaign of intimidation, which has included sexual harassment, violence, vandalism, arson and murder against the Christian population.

Christian churches in Egypt have been set on fire, nearly 40 have been looted and torched and 23 more have been damaged.

Schools, homes and businesses run by Christians face a similar fate.

Christians used to be the majority in Egypt, having been there since the 1st century. Now the Christians make up only 10 percent of Egypt.

Two Egyptian Coptic Christians are interviewed concerning these matters.
