Ealier this week, the United States sent $250 million to Egypt and recently sent nearly two dozen F-16s to the Muslim Brotherhood controlled nation. New President Mohamed Morsi, an Islamic radical, was caught on camera just two months ago calling Jews "descendants of apes and pigs." Now, The Voice of Russia is reporting as many as 100,000 Christians have fled Egypt since Morsi's takeover of the country.

Life for Christians under the government of Mohammed Morsi in Egypt has become difficult. Reports are emerging that up to 100,000 Christians have left Egypt since the Muslim Brotherhood came to power. Some of those have arrived in Moscow. VoR’s Brendan Cole went there to investigate.

This week Cairo saw the launch of a Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice designed to protect 'Islamic morality'. Many Christians fear that Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood may further limit their ability to live and worship freely.

Forward.
