Forced conversions in Egypt

According to the Christian Post, a new report:

Released by Christian Solidarity International and the Coptic Foundation for Human Rights, “The Disappearance, Forced Conversions and Forced Marriages of Coptic Christian Women in Egypt” report documents dozens of real cases of Christian women who were lured and then violently forced into marriage, often after being raped.

Report research was done in Egypt by American anti-trafficking specialist Michele Clark and Egyptian women’s rights activist Nadia Ghaly. Based on research findings, the report contends that the violence against Egypt’s Christian women corresponds to the internationally recognized definitions of human trafficking.

Muhammad said, "Let there be no compulsion in religion" (Sura 2:256) so apparently these Egyptian Muslims don't understand Islam very well. On the other hand, after a Jewish tribe refused to accept Islam, Muhammad conquered them, decapitated at least 600 of the men, and sold their wives and children into slavery.

Could it be that it is the American Left that doesn't understand Islam very well.
