MISSING WOMAN CONTACTS FAMILY FOR HELP
Christian refutes police claims that she ran away to convert to Islam.
February 23 (Compass) Missing for over a month, a young Christian woman has telephoned her relatives and reported being imprisoned in a Cairo apartment while facing pressure to convert to Islam.
Last seen in the village of El-Saff 30 miles south of Cairo on January 3, Theresa Ghattass Kamal briefly contacted her aunt on January 24. She told her aunt that she had not yet succumbed to her unknown captors demands that she become a Muslim, her brother Saeed Ghattass Kamal told Compass.
Her phone call contradicted earlier police statements that she had converted to Islam voluntarily and did not want to see her family again. Police made the claims last month in the wake of a three-day protest by clergy and lay members of the Coptic Orthodox church.
Further investigation by Saeed Kamal revealed that no official records of his sisters conversion existed at Cairos Al-Azhar Islamic center. Egyptian law requires that all conversions be registered at Al-Azhar and then validated with the security police, the State Security Investigation (SSI).
The Kamal family traced the origination point of the 19-year-old womans call to an apartment in Cairos Shubra district owned by Muslim Mostafa Mahmood Ali.
A local priest who asked not to be named for security reasons characterized Alis house as a dangerous place, full of fundamentalists.
Saeed Kamal and a Shubra diocesan lawyer immediately reported Ali to the Shubra branch of the SSI. When the Christian returned on January 30, police told him over a waiting room telephone that they had interrogated Ali and that he did not have the Christian woman. Police refused to meet with Saeed Kamal in person.
Originally from Wadi El-Natroun 50 miles northwest of Cairo, Theresa Kamal, 19, was living in a church-owned apartment for women in Giza and taking courses at the Secretarial Academy in old Cairo. Theresas father converted to Islam in 1995, and her mother died in 2003, leaving her and her four adult siblings on their own.
On January 3, she visited Coptic Orthodox priest Bavley William in the village of El-Saff and asked for his help in renewing her national and student identity cards. She had lost the documents while riding on a public bus.
William encouraged the Christian woman to return to Wadi El-Natroun to apply for her ID and gave her some money to help cover the expense. Theresa Kamal then called her brother and told him she would return home no later than the morning of January 5.
When his sister had not returned home by January 6, Saeed Kamal traveled to Giza and El-Saff to find her. Police in both cities refused to file a missing person report, telling him to return to Wadi El-Natroun to report his sisters disappearance.
In a January 10 report of the Christian womans disappearance, Wadi El-Natroun police stated that they would first request a report from the Bureau of Investigation about this event.
Fearing continued government inaction, 150 Christians, including three Coptic Orthodox priests, began a three-day, peaceful protest on January 11 outside the village police station. Led by priest Yahnoss Kama, parish priest Botross of Wadi El-Natroun, and parish priest Bavley of Khatatba City, the local Orthodox congregation demanded the return of Theresa Kamal.
On the third day, SSI officer Tarek Haykal promised the protestors that Kamal would be returned to her family, and that they could meet her at his office in Demnhoor, the provincial capital of Buhayrah, on January 17. Claiming to speak on orders from Hassan Abdul Rahman, the head of the SSI in Cairo, Haykal also threatened to arrest the three priests if they did not disperse immediately.
But according to Saeed Kamal, at the January 17 meeting officer Haykal cursed and insulted him and then kicked him out of the office. Haykal then told the two Demnhoor parish priests accompanying the Christian man that Theresa had converted to Islam on the day of her disappearance and that she refused to return to her family.
Haykal said he would schedule a meeting between Theresa Kamal and a priest, a mandatory prerequisite for legal conversion in Egypt.
Upon checking conversion records at all Al-Azhar Islamic center and at Cairo and Giza security directorates, Saeed Kamal discovered that his sisters supposed conversion had never taken place.
Reports of kidnappings and the forced conversion of Christian girls are common among Egypts Coptic community. Some Christian girls romanced by young Muslim men voluntarily leave their families and convert to Islam in order to escape poverty and unhappy family situations.
But there have been credible reports that government authorities have failed to sufficiently cooperate with Christian families seeking to regain custody of their daughters, the U.S. State Department said in its latest annual International Religious Freedom Report on Egypt.
Without police cooperation, families find it difficult to verify the motives for each conversion. Unless the convert is under 18, the legal age for conversion, police can refuse to recover the missing woman by claiming that she does not want to see her family.
Kamals situation is unusual in that she was able to contact her family and deny reports of willful conversion. It has been easier than usual to see police complicity in this case, because Theresa was able to tell her aunt that she is in the place where she was phoning from, one Cairo-based lawyer commented. But all that the officers did in response was to inform her brother that she was not there.
Coptic Christians make up at least 10 percent of the Egyptian population. While it is illegal for Egypts Muslims to convert to Christianity, "kidnap conversions" to Islam have long been the subject of debate in the country.
In December 2004, thousands of Coptic Christians in Cairo protested when Wafaa Constantin, the wife of an Orthodox priest in Bahayrah province, supposedly converted to Islam and eloped with a Muslim man. Constantin was returned to church custody by Egyptian security forces.
From Mary Bulak ( Telephone call to ACU)
reported that her two daughters , Marian, 13 yr. and Kristine, 15yr.
when have been kidnapped 2 years ago.
The girls kidnapped by

Dec. 2003, who
identified Kristine, and Marian as his own daughters and dropping off
the biological father from the Civil Records Office, it is that
The government agency of Civil
Record Office as well as the police, made it very easy to accomplish the
crime. Al-Arabia Channel hosted an Islamist Lawyer, Ahmed Shaban,
who explain the Islamic Law in this case. He said that the girls can not
be returned to their family, because Islam disallow Apostasy, in
addition, that Islam allow children conversion at the age of seven years
old regardless of their parents religion or permission!!!!.
He ignored the fact that Marian, and Kristin were kidnapped ,
rapped, and forced to marry the Muslim abductors in the first place.
The SSI has protected the criminals, and provide a safe house for
them. Recently, the mother appeared on a TV show,
begging all audience and viewers help her restore her daughters.
Unfortunately, the TV show host 2 other guests ( Muslims pretend
Christians) , who accused the mother's behavior, calling her a
prostitute. The SSI and other government agencies know the location of
the girls, and refused to help the mother to meet with them. American
Coptic Union, report the case to the US Embassy in Cairo seeking the
help for the mother.
past experience in similar, and such abducting crimes by Muslims
perpetrators, shows that the Christian kidnapped girls appear to the
public, and/or TV interviews, brainwashed and tripped out.
example , on April 28, 2006, Al Arabia Satellite Channel has broadcast
an interview with the two Christian under age victims . They appeared
veiled , and introduced with their Islamic names, carrying their
new born children. Ironically, they disowned their mom, and Dad

I am writing to you regarding the case of the two kidnapped
underage Coptic Christian girls, Kristine, and Marian, and their mother

time and effort interviewing the mother , and listening to her part of
the crime, on Jan 24, 06. The mother called
American Coptic Union telling that she received threats against
her and her youngest daughter, 11 years old, as a result of that meeting
with Mr. Roger, on Feb.7, 2006. These threats includes kidnapping of her
remaining young daughter, and harmful action against her personally. In
addition to physical threats, some Islamic web sites raised, 2.5 million
Saudi Riyal, for the two kidnapped girls, and for transferring them to
Saudi Arabia along with the perpetrators. Not only this, but the
government agencies and authorities has committed perjury by changing
the name of Kristine, and Marian's biological father to a Muslim
Unfortunately, she said while crying over the phone "I was
told during the meeting at the Embassy that I have no legal rights to
restore, and see my daughters".
The fact of the matter that
there is no law on the earth
prevent a mother from seeing her daughters. Despite it is a
natural right for any parents to see, meet, and live with their kids,
the Arab Republic of Egypt, and its Islamic Sharia Laws treated as an
exception in that case.
The current status of these two kidnapped girls is
based on a crime committed by some Muslims, SSI, and government
agencies, and we believed that US Embassy should not accept or
recognized the current circumstances, that were imposed by force and act
of criminal. As long as Islamic Sharia is against the Natural and Human
Rights we should not support it. We believe that is the policy of United

POLICE OBSTRUCT SEARCH FOR MISSING CHRISTIAN WOMAN
Officials stall investigation on reported kidnapping.
September 8 (Compass) -- Three months after his 20-year-old daughter disappeared while on an errand from work, Coptic Christian Rezk Shafik Attallah remains convinced that she has been kidnapped by a former police constable.
Attallah said his daughter, Marianna Rezk Shafik Attallah, left work May 30 at the Al-Raay medical laboratory in El-Fayoum, 60 miles south of Cairo, to pick up a patients blood sample from a residential address. Neither her family nor her fiancé have heard from her since.
When she failed to return home, her fiancé, Bishoy Hosni, went searching for her at her workplace. Mohammed Salah Noman, owner of the Noman Computer Center neighboring the Al-Raay lab, told him that a Muslim employee of his, Ali Mahmoud Abdel Rasoul, had kidnapped the young woman.
Reportedly Rasoul, who had been maintaining the Al-Raay laboratory computers, had previously been fired from the police force for bad behavior.
After hearing this, Attallah filed a report with the police on the day of his daughters disappearance, naming Rasoul as her suspected kidnapper. But the officials on duty refused to give him the case number.
At the same time, a State Security Investigation (SSI) officer declared that Rasoul had packed up his household goods and moved 250 miles further south to Sohag, taking Attallahs daughter with him. But he warned the young womans father and fiancé to stop looking for her, declaring she had left of her own free will.
The womans fiancé remained skeptical. If she went of her own free will, Hosni told Compass, then why didnt she come to say that [to us]?
Soon afterwards, rumors spread in their district of El-Fayoum that Marianna Attallah had left her Christian faith and converted to Islam. But Hosni dismissed the claims, saying that during their courtship, it had been her close relationship with God and active involvement in the church that had helped bring him to a deeper understanding of his Christian faith.
Employer Involvement in Abduction
It also became evident to him that Marianna Attallahs employer, a Coptic woman named Ivon Asaad was involved somehow in the young womans disappearance.
A graduate of a local school of commerce, Marianna Attallah had taken a job at the lab on March 15, her meager salary of 90 Egyptian pounds ($15) per month supplementing her fathers limited income as a tailor.
But the young womans parents realized that something at work was disturbing her, causing her to spend long hours alone crying. So despite their financial straits to provide for her and her four siblings, they encouraged Marianna Attallah to quit her job. Relieved, she resigned on May 28. The next day Asaad visited her at the familys house, offering to more than double her salary if she would return.
The offer was too good to turn down, and she returned to the lab on May 30. But when Hosni later telephoned Asaad, questioning the circumstances of his fiancées errand and disappearance, within an hour police summoned him and the young womans father.
Why did you call Miss Ivon? the SSI officer asked them. Dont call her again. Marianna was not kidnapped. She went of her free will.
Cruel Joke on Desperate Father
The SSI has continued to stonewall the Attallah familys attempts to recover their daughter. On August 11, a security officer called the father, suggesting that he buy a cell phone so that the police could contact him whenever they learned his daughters whereabouts.
Attallah scraped together enough money to buy the phone and gave the police his number. Soon afterwards the officer called, telling him that his daughter was in Alexandria and promising that if he went to meet her, he could bring her back home.
Burning with hope, the father traveled the 200 miles north to Alexandria, where the officer called him again. Your daughter is across the street from you, he was told.
Spotting a veiled woman, the father approached and tried to speak with her, but she ran away from him and got on a bus. When he followed and tried again to speak with her, other passengers thought he was harassing the woman and started beating him, finally forcing him to get off the bus.
They are enjoying torturing that poor father, commented a human rights activist who interviewed Attallah in late August.
Although Attallah sent faxed petitions about his daughters case to the interior minister, SSI headquarters in El-Fayoum and Coptic Orthodox Pope Shenoudah III, he has received no reply.
Hundreds of young Coptic women disappear and are reported kidnapped each year in Egypt, but their families claims are difficult to prove.
At the same time, security officials frequently prevent Christian parents from having contact or private access to their daughters once they have been located, instead leaving them in the custody of the Muslim protector who abducted them.

June 2nd. 2002, Moslem terrorists, belong to Al Gamaa Al
Aslamyia, kidnapped a Christian girl, Jihan Isaac Gurgis, 17 years old.
The perpetrator kidnapped her from her house, 57 Serry Basha

terrorist, and arrested her brother who was trying to save his sister
from Moslem terrorists hands, torturing
him by electric shocks. The brother forced to sign an affidavit to let
her sister go with the kidnappers.
Center Report 2002:
rap and kidnap rates is high in Al-Minia Provinces 1250 case each year, Cairo, 1125 case, Alexandria comes third with 1100 case yearly, and Souhag comes at the end of the list by 5 cases every year. These statistics shows the vicious campaign against Christian women in Egypt. As part of the regimes policy, kidnapping and rapping Christian women still a preferred action against Christians. For instance, Nirmeen Bakhit, 16 years old, from Alexandria kidnapped by a Moslem terrorist, Mohamed Ahmid, Al Halawanie. The police protect the terrorist and allow him to go away with his crime. Another case, Jacklyn Fares, 16 years old, in Al Minia province kidnapped and raped by another Moslem terrorist, Khalid Tawfiq Hussein. The police arrested her parents, and tortured them to give the kidnapper the opportunity to flee to Saudi Arabia. These kinds of atrocities never stop under Mubarak regime, and he has to pay for it.

Egypt: Christian Wife Kidnapped:
While in Lebanon for work, an Egyptian Christian man named Gerguis met
and fell in love with a beautiful young woman, Achwak. She, too,
became a Christian, and the couple was married and soon blessed with a
The couple planned to visit Gerguis' family in Cairo Egypt. Work
prevented Gerguis from leaving immediately, but his wife and young son
went on ahead. Little did they know of the difficulties that they
soon would face.
In Egypt, it is customary for a Christian convert to take a new Christian
name. However, in Lebanon, the custom is different, and Achwak
kept her Muslim name.
Included in her papers that allowed her to enter Egypt was her Marriage
Certificate showing that she was now a Christian. At the airport
Achwak faced persistent questioning by officials. They said she
should not have converted to Christianity, but rather her husband should
become a Muslim like her.
The officials took her son away from her; and after several hours of
questioning, she was allowed to leave but was told to arrange for her
husband to pick up their son. Gerguis quickly returned to Egypt.
He was questioned for many hours before being allowed to take custody of
their son. The family then lived in Egypt for two years.
A beautiful daughter was born, and Gerguis applied for her birth
certificate. The authorities refused to issue one, saying that
Gerguis had to become a Muslim before it could be issued. He refused to
do so and left without the birth certificate.
Muslim extremists were watching this Christian family, and they kidnapped
Achwak. Devastated, Gerguis contacted her family in Lebanon, only to
learn that a Muslim named Sheikh Moamen had urged them to make sure
their daughter converted back to Islam. Gerguis pleaded with the
Sheikh for his wife's return. The Sheikh affirmed that this could
not happen unless Gerguis and the two children convert to Islam.
Gerguis quickly arranged for his two children to go into hiding and with
tears sought help from VOM contacts. Our contacts informed us,
"Women are often raped in such circumstances and their shame used
to further isolate them."
You can write a letter requesting that Gerguis Bekhit, Achwak Mohamad and
their children be reunited and given protection. Write to:
