Analysts say forced removals will create humanitarian crisis

In Egypt, there are wholesale efforts at “religious cleansing” of Coptic Christian families in villages.
Before his ouster, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was backed by Christians who were concerned with the increased killings of Copts in the waning days of the regime and the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood.
