Christian woman brutally murdered by Muslim Brotherhood while helping the elderly

A shocking new report details an Islamic mob of Muslim Brotherhood supporters in Egypt attacking and murdering a Christian woman for having a cross hanging on her car mirror.

“Every Friday the supporters of Muslim Brotherhood organize a march after Friday prayer in Ain Shams,” the witness told the International Christian Concern (ICC). Identified only as Wahid, he says that “On this Friday afternoon, violent clashes took place between the supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood and the security forces during their march.”

Mary, in her mid-20s, was parked near the Virgin Mary and Archangel Michael Coptic Orthodox Church to deliver medicine and food to the elderly after work that day. The protesters headed towards this church after the clash and attacked Mary when they saw her cross hanging from the rear view mirror of her car.

Wahid says the mob jumped on the car, collapsing the roof, and then dragged her from the vehicle, beating and stabbing her repeatedly. “They were chanting ‘Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar’ and cursing her while stabbing her,” Wahid said. “Then one of them shot her in the back and that led to her death. After killing her they set her car on fire.”

The Australian Coptic Movement Association condemned the targeted killing as a “callous, vicious, and unprovoked act.” They called on the Egyptian government to investigate her murder and “send a clear message that this behavior will not be tolerated.” Coptic Christians make up about 10 percent of the Egyptian population.

In his column about George’s murder, Raymond Ibrahim, a Middle East expert and the son of Coptic Egyptians, quoted an eyewitness who said, “Let me tell you, here in Ain Shams, we [Christians] know that every Friday is a day of death; that the day after FridaySaturday, we’ll be carried to the morgue!”

An Interior Ministry spokesman, Hani Abdel-Latif, also blamed the Muslim Brotherhood for George’s death as well as three other killings that day, including female journalist Mayada Ashraf. But no one has been charged in George’s murder, while four people have been arrested in connection with Ashraf’s death, according to ICC’s Todd Daniels.

Hal Meawad of Coptic Solidarity told ICC there have many incidents like this one ever since the Egyptian revolution in 2011 that led to “a breakdown in the security situation on the streets. Christians are paying a very high price for this breakdown,” he said.
