The 15-year prison sentence given to a woman and her seven children by an Egyptian court for converting to Christianity is a sign of things to come, according to alarmed human rights advocates who say the nation's Islamist government is bad news for Christians in the North African country.
A criminal court in the central Egyptian city of Beni Suef meted out the shocking sentence last week, according to the Arabic-language Egyptian paper Al-Masry Al-Youm. Nadia Mohamed Ali, who was raised a Christian, converted to Islam when she married Mohamed Abdel-Wahhab Mustafa, a Muslim, 23 years ago. He later died, and his widow planned to convert her family back to Christianity in order to obtain an inheritance from her family. She sought the help of others in the registration office to process new identity cards between 2004 and 2006. When the conversion came to light under the new regime, Nadia, her children and even the clerks who processed the identity cards were all sentenced to prison.
Samuel Tadros, a research fellow at Hudson Institute's Center for Religious Freedom, said conversions like Nadia's have been common in the past, but said Egypt's new Sharia-based constitution "is a real disaster in terms of religion freedom.

CNN’s “Arab Spring”.
Comming to a State Capitol near you....
Coming soon to this land of ours..... Thanks to Dear Leader and his minions.
‘There’s no harm in filling out a little paperwork about your gun...’ I’m sure they said the same about registering your religion as they do in many countries already. I especially find it shocking that any Jew in Germany would ever submit to such a requirement, but they do on their tax forms so that their temple can get paid money from the government.
Once again, I say it: The only reason to ever register anything with a government is to submit control over it to the government. From your birth to your death, you submit your control to the approval and whim of the government.
And now a woman and her minor children are in a prison cell, along with the clerks who processed her paperwork.
Egypt. Isn’t that where 0bama’s buddy is president? Isn’t that the country that gets 82 billion of our painfully-earned dollars so that they can spread sharia?
She is lucky. They didn’t stone her to death.
This is Obama’s plan, why else would he have started this Muslim Spring crap?
Too bad there isn’t a like button !
Oooooooh...the arab-spring has apparently sprung. So multi-billions of American tax dollars go each year to support this kind of “civilized” behavior??? Maybe we should give them several of the most advanced fighter jets we possess...oh...we already have??? Great nobama/hitlery foreign policy.
And Barry and is metrosexual cabal want to give these barbaric savages modern fighter jets and other advanced military hardware.
We still have 4 more years of this to endure.

Surprisingly merciful. The usual penalty is death.
According to Sharia Law, you can convert to Islam, but it’s a one-way street. No going back. The usual penalty for converting FROM Islam is death.
That’s why I’ve often said that Barry is still a Muslim. He WAS a Muslim. And there’s no evidence that he was ever baptized. If he had converted back from Islam to Christianity, as he sometimes pretends, then Muslims all over the world would be screaming their heads off, and clerics would be issuing fatwas demanding his death, as they did for Salman Rushdi.
Ironically, Barry’s alma mater, Harvard Law School, has recently put up a placard praising the Koran for its supremely wonderful justice. It depends what you mean by “justice.”
Needless to say, Harvard gets a lot of money from Muzzie donors, and they are just returning the favor.
