Fanatic Kills a Copt in Zagazeeg.
The web site copts-united .com and the Egyptian Association for Human Rights (whose president is Dr. Naguib Gobrail), have announced that a Copt with the name of Fouad Fawzy has been stabbed to death in his shop by a fanatic Moslem on Monday, 26 of June.
The crime happened in the Egyptian city of Zagazeeg, north of Cairo. According to the statements, the killer does not know his victim personally, and the killing happened for the sole reason that Mr. Fawzy is a Copt.
Few details are known so far, but it seems that the assassin entered Fawzy’s shop pretending to be a customer. Once he was inside, he started screaming “Kafer…Kafer” meaning “Unbeliever in Islam” and attacked the victim with a knife causing him severe and fatal wounds. The killer left the shop murmuring Islamic verses.
Both Copts-United and the Egyptian Association of Human Rights have appealed to the Egyptian authorities and security forces to secure speedy justice in this yet another horrific crime against the Copts. They stressed that this crime can be well related to the deeply harmful effects of the fanatic Islamic statements and sermons given in the Egyptian Media and mosques all over Egypt.
