Summary
The Fear and the Faith exposes persecution of Christians in Egypt as Moslem fundamentalism continues to grow. Never before has this important story been filmed. The conflict between Christians and Moslems is the most sensitive issue in Egypt. Both the Church and the Egyptian government have created a wall of silence behind which an ugly persecution of the Christian minority is occurring. The Islamic movement is bent on converting the eight million Coptic Christians living in their midst. They succeed in converting around 12,000 a year. A spokesman for the militant Jamaat Islamiya fighters reveals that the Koran instructs them to execute those who convert to Christianity. The Coptic Pope tells us that the conflict must be resolved by Egyptians, not by the international community. Isolated Christian families in poor areas of Cairo are especially targeted for conversion. Some inducements are financial and social rewards, but violent tactics are also used. We meet a Christian man who was shot and stabbed by Moslem fanatics, the Coptic cross tattooed on his wrist as a sign of faith, gouged out with a knife. He accuses the police of colluding with the Moslem fanatics, a common accusation. Also included in this film are interviews with the Coptic Church's Pope and with Dr. Osama Al Baz, political advisor to President Mubarak
