What is shown on the
CPR website found
by Dov is rather puzzling. The CPR seems to have been founded in the 1990s in
Langen (Germany) by Faiez Nagib, president of the CPR. The site shows a few
snips from German local newspapers announcing the foundation of the CPR.
However, the CPR website does not seem to include evidence of the real activity
of the CPR. It lists links to Coptic organizations all over the world and
contains anti-Islamic and anti-Egyptian (government) rants. The images of the
CPR only shows the President, including a picture portraying him standing on his
balcony with a shield decorated with the eagle from the flag and the URL of the
website. I have not found either a specific political program but "we have
broken negotiations with the Egyptian government since they harassed us" or a
list of members, council, legal representatives etc. of the CPR.
Concerning the symbols, which are widely shown on the CPR website, nothing is said on their meaning but there is a link towards a German flag manufacturer, who sells the flag for 9 euros.
