New clothes, gifts, late-night family feasts, sports and games, times of prayer, and special TV shows — Muslim children in Egypt look forward to all these things during Ramadan. But many Egyptian Christians do not look forward to Ramadan. Here is what an Egyptian Christian told a worker from The Voice of the Martyrs about problems he has experienced with radical Muslims:
“During Ramadan, radical Muslims are especially extreme. Christians are careful not to eat in public, not even to chew gum. What would radical Muslims do if they caught Christians eating? They would spit on them, curse them, or sometimes fight them.”
A Ramadan “Gift”
“During one Ramadan, 30 Christian girls age 15 to 20 were kidnapped by fanatic Muslims. The Muslims said the girls were the Christians’ Ramadan gift to the Muslims.” — A Christian in Egypt.
