Bounty of $60M for the most wanted infidel

If Islam is a Religion of Peace, why is there a bounty of $60M on the head of a Coptic priest who explains the plight of minority Christians in Egypt which was one of the early centres of Christianity prior to her conquest by Muslims?

The proportion of Copts living in Egypt is roughly the same as the proportion of Muslims in France but there the similarity ends. Muslims in France have freedom of worship. In Egypt churches are destroyed, Christians killed for being Christians and their daughters converted to Islam by forced marriage with Muslims. Read about The Plight Of Egypt’s Coptic Christians here.

Egypt is far from unique. "Events in Iraq form part of a broader pattern of increasing persecution of Christians and other religious minorities. In many countries, including Syria, Iran, Nigeria, Mali, CAR, Sudan, Libya, Algeria, Egypt, Indonesia, Kenya, Somalia and Afghanistan, well-armed Islamist extremists are not only persecuting Christians severely, but are also violating the rights of all who do not share their restrictive dogma." The facts here.

Today's 1.5 billion Muslims make up 22% of the world's population. But their birth rates dwarf the birth rates of Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, and all other believers. Muslims will exceed 50% of the world's population by the end of this century. Details here.

From the New York Times: 'After Week of Terror, French Muslims Ask: What Now?'
Reprisals against innocent Muslims are to be deplored but so is dissimulation and prevarication. Whether attacks are termed euphemistically as Islamist, Islamism or plain Islamic, the root is the same and the problem is the same. Jihad, armed or cultural, has to be addressed honestly and openly without hiding behind claims that aspects of the Muslim faith are too sacred to be held up to scrutiny by non-believers.

In 2011 the motion "Islam is a religion of peace" was debated on US television. A vote taken before the debate showed: For 41%, Against 25%, Undecided 34%. In another vote after the debate in which both sides were allowed free expression the vote was For 36%, Against 55%, Undecided 9%.

Opponents of free expression should be aware that on current trends, by the year 2050 Britain will be a majority Muslim nation leaving our descendants to suffer the persecution of minorities currently endured in Middle Eastern countries unless there is a change in attitudes.

But for now the civilised world is united with France in shock and sorrow at the events in Paris. 'Je Suis Charlie' must be a watershed moment ending denial.

Pour la France et le Peuple de France.
Vive la République!


  1. ‘But for now the civilised world is united with France in shock and sorrow at the events in Paris’ – except the Church in Wales; Dr Morgan still hasn’t issued a statement of support for the victims or condemnation of the Islamist terrorists.

    I listened to Bwrw Golwg on Radio Cymru, this morning, where the insufferable Aled Edwards was interviewed. Not one mention of his involvement in the pulping of Y Llan and his complaints about a cartoon of God, Mohammed, Buddah and Abraham with the caption "Were all in this together." Has the Church in Wales bought off the BB? I will be writing to the BBC complain about their complicit approach. Up here in Bangor there is considerable disquiet about Barry's pulping of 2006.

  3. Two days before the French terror attacks there were marches in Germany opposing the Islamisation of Europe. Angela Merkel came out forcibly against the marchers. So did the French terrorists!

    And worse was the Archbishop of Wales reviewing the papers on Radio Wales. Quoting from the Guardian, he was quick to point out that there is an Islamic tradition of figuratively representing the Prophet. What a pity he didn't pause to consider this before he went on his pulping crusade in 2006. But, again, he was completely let off the hook by the presenter. What is the BBC up to?

  5. The staggering comment from Aled Edwards OBE was his description of absolute free speech as a form of extremism! Talking about Islamic violence and the highly prized notion of free speech in France, he said "We're talking about two forms of extremism here." That was John Roberts' opportunity to ask him about 2006. But no. Obviously the C in W has been leaning on those to whom we pay our licence fee...
