If you visit the above link you will read a strange story. True, it is good news that for once, the victims of discrimination received their rights. But good Lord; is it a damning account of the government's discrimination or what?!
Although the verdict was handed down more than eight months ago, on May 31, 2005, civil authorities refused to implement the decision.
Why? and why weren't they penalised? Can you imagine if this happened in Australia or the US or Europe? A Muslim man converts to Christianity and falsefies his daughters birth certificates. A court rules the situation be corrected. The civil authorities refuse to.
You can imagine the torrent of "anti Islam" claims. Demonstrations would probably be arranged. Newspapers would demand justice be served in the interest of "national unity" and "tolerance".
Anyone who still claims that discrimination against Copts in Egypt is not sanctioned or at least ignored by the governemnt, is kidding themsleves. Shame on any Egyptian with a conscience if they don't in the very least acknowledge this fact.
