Coptic Conference: Change of Location.

An announcement regarding the coming Coptic Conference in NY has appeared on the web site This conference is being organized by Copts-United, the International Christian Union, and Eng. Cameel Haleem. The announcement describes the Conference as one of many actions taken-such as the recent Coptic demonstration in NY city- and other actions planned for the future. The aim being to support human rights and freedom of religion in the region of the Middle East.

The readers are invited to participate in the fight against injustice, and in support of the weak and the persecuted in the countries of the Middle East. The statement declares that it is shameful and regretable that while Islamic countries, under the leadership of Saudi Arabia and Iran, are pouring money to encourage terrorism, the Christians of the area are standing alone without any support whatsoever, be it moral, financial, or political.

The Coptic Conference was supposed to be held in the building of the UN, in NY city. However, the statement says, due to political and international pressure( especially from Egypt), it was decided to move it to:

Holiday Inn, Newark Airport Hotel 160 Frontage Road, Newark, NJ 07114.

The date and the times of the Conference are still the same as before. The Conference is planned to be shown through direct video link on the web sites of both Copts-United and the the International Christian Union.

What does it mean to say, it was "supposed" to be in the U.N.? Had the U.N. agreed to host, or was that just a conference planner's aspiration? To make assertions like this without documenting the reasons is irresponsible and damaging to the cause of copts worldwide.
