In Egypt, Muslim attacks on Christians are based on jihad
ICC Note:
“Coptic Christians in Egypt continue to live with discrimination, oppression and persecution from the Islamic majority. Muslim attacks on Christians, random and unprovoked, are based on jihad and often sanctioned by the state. Coptic victims are often hauled off to jail for the crimes committed against them.” Christians have never received an apology and Muslims rarely are punished for their actions—which has only emboldened radical Muslims to continue persecuting Christians.
