Polling of Egyptians suggests that the general program of the Muslim Brothers is still supported even as their tactics and governing are rejected. In a Pew survey earlier this year, 74 percent of Egyptians said they want sharia to be “the official law of the land,” and 55 percent said sharia should apply to non-Muslims, which in Egypt includes 15 million Christian Copts. An earlier survey from 2010 found more specific support for sharia law: 84 percent of Egyptians supported the death penalty for apostates, 82 percent supported stoning adulterers, 85 percent said Islam’s influence on politics is positive, 95 percent said that it is good that Islam plays a large role in politics, 59 percent identified with Islamic fundamentalists, 54 percent favored gender segregation in the workplace, 82 percent favored stoning adulterers, 77 percent favored whippings and cutting off the hands of thieves and robbers, 84 percent favored death for those leaving Islam, and 60 percent said that laws should strictly follow the teachings of the Koran. source: http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2013/09/12/watching_the_middle_east_implode_119922.html

The criminal court of Beni Suef (in Egypt, 115 km south of Cairo) has sentenced an entire family to prison for converting to Christianity. Nadia Mohamed Ali and her children Mohab, Maged, Sherif, Amira, Amir, and Nancy Ahmed Mohamed abdel-Wahab will spend 15 years in prison. Seven other people involved in the case were sentenced to five years in prison. source: http://www.asianews.it/news-en/Egypt-26860.html

Abductions and forced conversions of young Egyptian Coptic girls have been going on for decades right under the noses of local authorities. But the frequency of the kidnappings has increased alarmingly since the uprising in 2011 that toppled dictator Hosni Mubarak and brought an Islamist-led government to power. More than 500 Christian girls have been abducted in the last two years. source: http://www.iede.co.uk/news/2013_1594/missing-christian-girls-leave-trail-tears

In an attack lasting 18 hours on 5 July, four Coptic Christian men were killed and four others were seriously injured. An angry mob armed with metal bars, knives, tree branches and hammers attacked Christian homes and businesses in Nagah Hassan, 18 km west of Luxor, after the dead body of a Muslim man was discovered near the homes of Christian families. Despite local residents’ and religious leaders’ repeated calls for help, security forces on the scene made only half-hearted attempts to end the violence and sufficient reinforcements failed to arrive. source: http://www.amnesty.org/en/news/egypt-security-forces-abandon-coptic-christians-during-deadly-attack-luxor-2013-07-23

There are only about a million people in the Sinai and over 83 million in the rest of Egypt. About half the Sinai population is Bedouin, the rest are Egyptians who came as government officials or to work on the Suez Canal or the new tourist enterprises in the Sinai. Discriminated against by Egyptians, and feeling disdain for Egyptian culture, many Bedouin find themselves unable to get jobs and their traditional lifestyle (herding and trade) is no longer able to support all of them. Smuggling has always been popular, and people are eager to get into Israel (for jobs) and terror groups in Gaza pay well for weapons. Terrorists in Sinai have cash and will pay for shelter and other assistance from Bedouin. In the last two years the number of terrorists operating in Sinai has gone from a few hundred to over a thousand. These guys have nowhere to go but Egypt because the Israeli counter-terror measures of the last decade have made it virtually impossible to carry out terrorist attacks inside Israel. Since another popular uprising (backed by the military) overthrew the recently elected Islamic government in early July the Sinai terrorists have been at war with Egypt. Despite vigorous and frequent military and police raids in Sinai, most of the terrorists there have remained hidden, except when they attack the security forces or government officials. Noting that some of these terrorists still had bases in Sinai, for the last month Egypt has been shutting off access from Sinai into Gaza. That means destroying over 300 smuggling tunnels and destroying all buildings from the Gaza border fence and 500 meters into Egypt. This makes digging new tunnels more difficult, and easier to detect. The one legal crossing from Gaza to Egypt is shut much of the time and when open carefully monitored when opened. The Egyptian Navy has more ships guarding the Gaza coast and now fires on boats from Gaza that try to enter Egyptian waters without permission. source: http://www.strategypage.com/htmw/htterr/articles/20130918.aspx

The Moslem Brotherhood continues to be unpopular with most Egyptians even though the Brotherhood still has the support of nearly 20 percent of the population...

The Board of Inquiry in Cairo monitoring the “sectarian violence that continues to cross Egypt after the overthrow of President Morsi, has documented in a report released on Tuesday, March 25 the endemic forms of violence and abuse that continue to be perpetrated against Coptic Christians in many parts of the country, particularly in the governorates of Luxor, Sohag and Aswan.”  According to this report, “reference is made to abductions [almost always for ransom], expropriation of houses, shops looted where Egyptian Copts continue to be targeted victims.” source: http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/04/milking-egypts-christian-copts-dry

Imagine the horror that gripped members of a Coptic Christian family in Egypt when they saw a mob of angry Muslim radicals attacking and burning their home in the middle of the night... Ibrahim Khalaf, the girl's father, said the Muslim mob attacked their home based on a rumour that they were converting their house into a church when they started replacing its wooden roof with concrete... Muslims often consider the building of a church in their area as an insult... Ibrahim Khalaf is demanding full justice for his destroyed house despite pressure for him to withdraw his police complaints... Khalaf said he has been warned that if he doesn't withdraw his complaints "there will be blood." Those who issued the warning even threatened his daughters, saying they "can be kidnapped" and that "the security services won't stay in the village forever to protect you." Coptic Christians say they are being pressured by local security authorities and village leaders into dropping legal complaints against the Muslims who attacked and burned their homes. source: www.christiantoday.com/article/c/92486.htm

Muslim radicals have attacked properties and homes belonging to Coptic Christians in Egypt after rumors circulated about a church being constructed. According to International Christian Concern, the attacks took place in Manshiet El-Naghamish village located in the Sohag Governorate in Upper Egypt. More than 2,000 Coptic Christians live in the village, with the nearest church being over three miles away. When Christian villagers in El-Naghamish built a four-story building to be used as a community center, preschool and retirement home, Muslims in the vicinity assumed that the building would become a church. While the Christians in the village have applied for a permit to build a church, they are still awaiting approval from the government. source: http://www.christiantoday.com/article/egyptian.muslim.radicals.destroy.coptic.christian.properties/102562.htm
