Posted on 11/06/2019 12:00:33 PM PST by george76
Last week the Egyptian court system denied justice to Egypts Coptic Orthodox Christian minority by again postponing judgment on two notorious cases that have been at court for years.
The first concerns Soad Thabet, a 70-year-old Coptic grandmother. On May 20, 2016, a mob of some 300 Muslim men descended on her home, stripped her completely naked, beat, spit on, and paraded her in the streets of al-Karm village (in Minya governorate) to jeers, whistles, and triumphant shouts of Allahu Akbar.
Earlier that day she and her husband had gone to local police and complained that they were being harassed and threatened by neighborhood Muslims. Police responded by also threatening and ordering them out of the station. A few hours later, the attack came. It took the same local police over two hours to appear, giving the mob ample time, as one Christian clergyman put it, to riot. Seven Christian homes were also burned.
During these rampages, rioters randomly killed an elderly Coptic man, ... After murdering him, they dragged his body on the ground to jeers and cries of Allahu Akbar .. His corpse was then unceremoniously hurled into a garbage bin. For three days, his children were prevented from retrieving the body for burial. An unknown person eventually buried Alexander in an unmarked grave. His relentless murderers found the grave, exhumed the mangled body, propped it up, and used it for target practice.
The ongoing stalling of two cases where Copts were victimized makes clear that Egypts Christian minorities are not just suffering from Islamists and criminals but from the entire system, a system which allows much impunity for those who would target Christians.
After all, a justice that moves as slowly as a turtleconstantly recusing and delayingis just another form of injustice.
