More Falsehood: Prophet Muhammad Killed 4 million Christians in Egypt (Another Usama Dakdok Falsehood)

Here we have a Christian (Usama Dakdok) presenting a blatant falsehood by claiming Prophet Muhammad killed 4 million of his Coptic Christians in Egypt and raped them too. This nutty Coptic Christian needs to be told Prophet Muhammad (p) never went to Egypt!

This is the sad state of the internet - it's awash with moon-bats such as this Usama Dakdok who present the most obvious falsehoods out there!

If the video does not play, please see:

For the information of anybody who wants to cut through the misinformation of right-winged-evangelical-Christians:

Prophet Muhammad (p) never went to Egypt. His earthly life had passed when Egypt fell into Muslim hands

Amr ibn al-Aas was the Muslim leader who captured Egypt from the Byzantines roughly ten years after the passing away of Prophet Muhammad (p)

Usama Dakdok is a Coptic Christian and his people were persecuted at the hands of the Byzantine Christians and viewed with relief the over-throwing of Byzantine rule by the Muslims:

In Egypt itself, Cyrus had already alienated large number of Copts by the savagery of his religious persecution and they began to desert the Roman cause. Determined to resume negotiations, he hastily signed an agreement in November 641 surrendering the whole of Egypt to the Arabs. Almost a year had passed since Cyrus concluded with Amr the first peace treaty, which had been contemptuously torn up by Heraclius. The terms of the new treaty were severe for the Byzantines, who were forced to leave this rich province with eleven months’ grace but the local Christians and the Jews received the same treatment which had previously been accorded to the ‘People of the Book’ in Syria, Palestine and Iraq.
The garrison of Babylon had already surrendered two months after the  death of Heraclius, and six months later Amr started building a permanent military camp, named Fustat, near this fortress. The military colony later grew into a thriving metropolis and continued to be the Muslim capital of Egypt until 973, when the Fatimids [909-1171] made the new city of Cairo, found near it (in 969), the seat of their government. Alexandria (capital of Hellenic Egypt), like the rest of the country was evacuated by the Byzantine army in September 642 in accordance with the Cyrus-Amr peace treaty, and was occupied by the Arabs. Thus came to an abrupt end the Byzantine rule in Egypt, and the Copts viewed it with relief. Cyrus had died earlier in March 642.

 In 642, Amr ibn al-Aas built a mosque , which bears his name and still in use , to the north of the Babylon fortress, and was the first mosque to be built in Egypt. [Taken from: A Chronology of Islamic History 570-1000 CE, Ta-Ha Publishers, 4th Edition p.72-73]

Christians really need to stop inviting folk such as Usama Dakdok to their churches and gatherings if they value honesty and accuracy.

Dearborn--After growing religious tensions between some Christian missionaries and local Muslims, the annual Arab International Festival in Dearborn has been canceled for this year, organizers said Friday.

The announcement left many disappointed that a small number of aggressive extremists could ruin what had become a tradition in the eastern section of Dearborn, which has a significant number of Arab Americans.

The city and organizers were facing increased insurance and liability costs because of the tensions and lawsuits over the festival. Last month, the City of Dearborn had proposed moving the festival to a park instead of the traditional location on Warren Avenue in order to decrease conflict.

But Fay Baydoun, director of the American-Arab Chamber of Commerce, said Friday that it would have been impossible to organize a successful event in time at the new location. Baydoun said she hopes that next year’s festival will “come back better and stronger.” (Continue Reading.)

Dearborn Arab International Festival Canceled This Year

festival canceled, Terry Jones and Ruben Israel were coming to the festival to protest, and some of the attendees don't respond well to protesters.

Not surprisingly, Niraj Warikoo of the Detroit Free Press is blaming the cancelation on "aggressive" Christian "extremists," and not on the security guards who assaulted us in 2009, or on the police officers who arrested us in 2010 for having a peaceful discussion (and, two days later, took us into custody for distributing Bibles outside of the festival), or on the young Muslims who chased a preacher out of the festival in 2011, or on the young Muslims who viciously attacked Ruben Israel's group in 2012. For the Detroit Free Press, problems at the festival are always caused by Christians, even if the Christians are bleeding after being pelted with rocks.

VIENNA/HELSINKI (Reuters) - An Austrian man held hostage for five months in Yemen said he was kept in permanent darkness in a room too small to stand in and was forced to convert to Islam at gunpoint.

Weeks into his captivity, Dominik Neubaur told Austrian magazine News, he was taken out for what he thought would be his execution - but he believed he was spared after he recited verses from the Koran.

"I heard a weapon being loaded and felt its muzzle on the back of my head," Neubaur said in his first interview since his release a week ago.

The 26-year-old student of Arabic and a Finnish couple were kidnapped by tribesmen in Sanaa on December 21, and were later sold to al Qaeda, according to the Yemeni government. The three were freed on May 9. (Continue Reading.)

CAIRO — Egyptian security forces have arrested three militants with ties to Al Qaeda who were planning terrorist attacks in Egyptian cities and against a foreign embassy, the interior minister said Saturday.

A Western official said the Egyptians had privately identified the embassy as the United States Embassy in Cairo.

Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim said at a news conference that the suspects had been arrested with 22 pounds of explosive materials and instructions on how to make bombs and build rockets and model airplanes to use in the attacks.

He said the suspects were “on the verge” of attacking an embassy when they were arrested.

He did not identify the embassy, but Egyptian officials have told their American counterparts that the United States Embassy was a target, a Western diplomat said. (Continue Reading.)
