An Interview With Coptic
Lawyer Said Fayez
3/5/2014 Egypt (ACN Poland) 
Since the 1970's, Islamic cells in Egypt have been fully occupied with kidnapping, forced marriages, extorting, converting and blackmailing Coptic girls of age or under-age.

  • Pray Egypt will enforce more laws to protect all from religious intolerance
  • Pray that the families will continue to be strong in the midst of the kidnappings
