Al Ahram: a racist pro-governemnt Egyptian newspaper

Al Ahram's despicable report on the launch of the first Coptic channel reveals the newspaper's racist face.

Egypt is a country where anti-Semitic and anti-Christian books are sold freely on the sidewalks in the streets, where hate mongers write freely in its press, where mosques call Jews the descendants of Apes and Pigs, where national TV and Radio stations often broadcast hate filled materials promoting hostility against Christians, Jews and the USA as well, Al Ahram itself is a newspaper that publishes anti-Christian writings such as those of Zaghloul Annajar, an Islamic scholar and researcher who claimed the Tsunami disaster was a result of Allah's wrath and America's nuclear testing in the region, Annajar also called Jews sons of apes and pigs in many of his articles. Despite all that, the Al Ahram newspaper never for once criticized anti-Semitism nor anti-Coptic rhetoric in the Egyptian media.

And despite the presence of many Islamic satellite channels in the region such as Iqra'a, which was permitted to operate freely even though it promotes anti-Semitism "Click here to watch materials aired by this hate promoting channel , which the Egyptian government hosts on Nile Sat " , yet the mere presence of a Coptic channel is considered a sin and a challenge to the sick mentality of Al Ahram's racist and hate-promoting reporters. We as Copts should never think to have our own channels, we should sumbit and pay Jizzya with willing subdue! how dare we think of having our own channel?!

Let's see how they think of the channel:

Quote: "The timing of the channel's launch has also contributed to the controversy surrounding it. It began broadcasting less than a month after sectarian tension in Alexandria over a church play that was deemed offensive by Muslims resulted in clashes that killed three and injured hundreds." End quote

Even though the process of establishing the channel started over 4 years ago, and has no relevance to the recent attacks of Muslim mobs on the Coptic church in Alexandria, yet to the sick minds of Al Ahram, it's always a conspiracy; the non-Muslims are always conspiring against the Muslims (for what reason?!) according to the report.

It is worthy to mention that Al Ahram, which was established by two Christians in the 19th century, is now a newspaper that discriminates against Christians; it is almost void of any Coptic reporters or columnists!

Freedom of the press in Egypt means the freedom to insult and attack the Copts, Jews, Americans and non Muslims.
This reminds me of an Egyptian joke that says: an Egyptian met with an American, the American said, we are a free society, I can stand in front of the White House and protest against our president without getting arrested. The Egyptian answerd, so what... we are a free society as well, I can stand in the biggest square in Cairo and not only protest against the American president, I can even curse him if I want, and I will not get arrested.

You're not the first Coptic blog on the internet.

Let's not kid ourselves. The imam and others threatening Aghapy are motivated by fear. Their fear is not of Copts watching Aghapy but of Egyptian Muslims watching Aghapy. Although there is little chance that Muslims will publicly convert in large numbers - they would place their own lives in danger - they might well begin to see through the lies of the imams and lose their fervor for Islam. They could well leave Islam in their hearts even if they make no public declaration. They might, as many Muslims, simply follow the bare externals of Islam for the sake of appearance while ignoring it in their personal lives. Some might begin to appreciate the truths of the Christian faith and accept Christ in private. Do not underestimate the power of God when the Gospel is put forth. Even if there is no direct intent to convert Muslims, God can use it for His purposes and bring life to those in darkness. The imams may seem strong from an earthly view but from an eternal perspective they are weak. Never forget that the Gospel of Christ is all truth and the truth will set you free. God bless.

it's sad whats going on in Egypt. We can not do anything unless we develop parallel institutions to fight inequalities.

Copts wake up!

" to R

I didn't talk about my blog "Beyond Normal",
I said that this blog "The free copts" is not the first, nor even the second blog about Copts on the web. It's not the first bilingual blog either (as it claims in the title tag).

Search, and you will find

I searched and I found none, can you link to some bilingual Coptic websites that focus on the Coptic persecution?

Never mind who is first or second Coptic blog...who cares for heaven's sake? Can we please stick to the main subject, or is this an intended attempt to derail the discussion ?

Now..to the important part. I want to say that Al Ahram is a stinking, racist and fanatic mouthpiece. It USED to be respecatable, but now it has lost all credibility among the majority of Egyptians (moslems and copts)because it has lost all moral characters and has become just anoth "yellow" publication full of hate and ignorance...in addition of course, to praise and shouting for almighty government with its corrupt system.

I call on all honorable and free Egyptians to boycot Al Ahram completely, by not buying it , and by stop advertising in it. It is time for this publication to get what it deserves.

" I searched and I found none, "

Too bad.. just type copts.blogspot and see what you will get.
How can you miss this one :)?

There is also koptikjihad but is not bilingual

There is also Flying boy who often discusses 'persecution' issues... and is bilingual...

There may be more...

" bilingual Coptic websites that focus on the Coptic persecution?"

I was correcting this statement "Proud to be the first bilingual Coptic Blog": 'Coptic issues', not particularly 'Coptic persecution'. Let's not mix stuff up now...

How about supporting Watani instead of Al ahram?? How many Copts buy and/or advertise in Watani?
If there is a problem with Watani, let us discuss it and let Mr. Sidhom Know. This way we can get a better paper for the Cops in Egypt.
