CONTENT WARNING: this story contains graphic images that may be disturbing to some. While the woman's nudity has been blacked out and then men are not shown performing sex acts, the subject matter and some of the footage is still unsettling.
The content warning above may say it all. Below, you are about to see a group of alleged Muslim men sexually abusing a Coptic Christian girl recently in Egypt. And it's not strictly for pleasure. The embarrassing episode is supposedly part of a larger plot to shame and blackmail the woman into marrying a Muslim man and converting to Islam. It's apparently a growing practice in the region.
The video's description explains the disturbing event in detail. According to that description, the video was posted on a Coptic website along with an explanation in Arabic. The video's producer poster then had it translated and posted a summary in English:
(1) The video was received by a group calling itself "Free Copts". It shows an incident in which a Coptic Christian girl was sexually abused in an attempt to Islamize her. She belonged to a large and wealthy family of Christian Copts living in Minia in upper Egypt. One of her Muslim neighbours induced her to go to his house. Upon arriving there she was surprised to find a group of young Muslim males. They forced her to go with them to a nearby house. They threatened to kill her if she made any noise or cried for help. They forcibly took her clothes from her and videoed her completely naked next to one of the young men. The plan was to blackmail her into marrying him by informing her and her family that the tape would be made public unless she did so. They also threatened her with the same fate as had befallen another girl not far away, a girl who had been raped by 8 Muslim men, murdered, and had her body dumped in a nearby graveyard. The police and the prosecuting authority let those 8 men go free. The ringleader of the men in this video was supposed to receive a reward of 30,000 Egyptian pounds from a mosque in El Manya if they managed to get the girl to convert to Islam. The four men in the video are habitual criminals who constantly rob the shops and businesses of the Christian Copts.
(2) The girl eventually escaped back to her family. The men then tried to extort money from them.
(3) This is one of the methods Muslims are using to Islamize Egypt -- they kidnap young Christian girls, rape them, force them to convert to Islam. Sometimes they are forced to marry old Muslim men who keep them as hostages for their sexual gratification and kill them when they are of no further use.
