12/11/2012 Egypt (Christian Post)– The founder of an international group of advocates for the equality and rights of Coptic Christians is appealing to the leaders of democratic nations to cut any ties with Egypt. The Voice of the Copts is attempting to thwart President Mohamed Morsi’s regime from implementing a primarily Islamic-based constitution.
“We demand that world leaders withdraw their recognition of Egypt’s phony ‘pro-democracy’ leader, Mr. Morsi, who is backed by the illegal Muslim Brotherhood party,” states Dr. Ashraf Ramelah, president of Voice of the Copts, in an open letter sent Monday. “Freeze your political relationships with Egypt, halt all investments and aid to Egypt and force Mr. Morsi’s regime to step down. This will facilitate legitimate democratic goals yet to be achieved by Egypt’s freedom fighters.”
Coptic organizations around the world, including the U.S.-based Egyptian Front for National Salvation and Coptic Solidarity have been issuing similar demands since Morsi issued a new constitutional declaration in which he arrogated to himself sweeping powers, and enabled himself to be shielded from legal challenge through the courts.
Thousands of Egyptians within the country have been demonstrating against Morsi’s regime as well for the last several weeks.
