This may be as close as we are likely to get to the horse’s mouth on this one. Ting is a good friend and a good Christian lady with no ax to grind. If she says these are real emails, I believe her.

The Muslim Brotherhood’s War on Coptic Christians by Kirsten Powers Aug 22, 2013
“The Muslim Brotherhood is showing the world its true colors.”
My next door neighbor, Sam, is a lovely, lovely new American citizen whose family are all still in Egypt. He is a Coptic Christian, as are the rest of his family. He asked that I spread the word, so I figured this was a good place to get started.
You may have heard in the last few days about Egypt through the media. I hope you will take time to read the email below. As an Egyptian who was born in Egypt and is now an Egyptian-American, I cannot agree more with the content of this email. It truly explains the current situation in Egypt accurately. The Brotherhood is nothing more than a terrorist group who tries to take away the tiny bit of freedom that everyday Egyptians have and impose their radical religious beliefs on others. I have been enjoying the freedom and democracy here in America. I hope someday that my family and other Egyptians will have the same freedoms or even a small part of the liberties we so often take for granted. Please, pass this message to your friends and may I ask your prayers for all law abiding Egyptians both Muslim and Christian.
Thank you, Sam
Dear Pete and Ardy,
Hope all is going well at your end. I wish you happiness and health and all the good in the world.
I need to ask you to please spread the word. You know us, you know Egypt and I am so surprised at the media in the US and Europe. We took to the streets in millions on the 30th of June to oust Morsi and the MBs from Egypt.
These people are terrifying us. Their leaders literally said that the terrorist attacks in Sinai could stop if morsi is released. I heard them myself. We took to the streets again today to support General Sisi’s campaign against terrorism.
MBs are real dictators, they have alienated everybody at the time of Morsi’s rule. The constitution they passed is far from democratic ( I read it all ). Morsi released terrorists from prisons, in thousands. I saw faces that I thought were sentenced to death because they killed both Egyptians and tourists on the peaceful land of Egypt. Please spread the word, it is not a coup, it is a war against terrorism and we are supporting Sisi all the way.
MBs are hiring thugs to shoot protestors, they steel dead people’s bodies and claim they belong to them to show the world that they are the victims. I know one of them! And other friends know of other examples.
Al Jazeera, CNN, Guardian and BBC are lying to the world. They are showing Morsi’s supporters as millions and this is not true.. MBs are protesting near by my mother’s place and they kidnap people and they torture them inside the “mosque” can you believe this?
Our army is being shot at in Sinai and many soldiers killed while defending our land. We trust them, we sought their support to bring our country back and they responded to us.
I am sorry for my long email, and sorry to bother you. But I know you love Egypt and you know Egypt more than many Egyptians do. If you could spread the word, I and so many others will be very grateful to you.
Love you both very much, and wish you peace and happiness forever, Nermine
