Usama Dakdok was born in Egypt. At age 11 he became a Christian. Although raised in a Christian home, he grew up in a government school in Egypt. Through the years in school he learned about Islam. In college he studied Islamic law. In 1992 he came to America where he found many Muslims in America and began a ministry, The Straight Way of Grace Ministry to reach out to Muslim people with the power of the Gospel through Jesus Christ.

As the Muslim Brotherhood gains power in Egypt, Usama reported that Christians are under great persecution. This came to head recently when Christians attempted to stage a peaceful protest in Cairo due in part to the destruction by Muslim military and police personnel of a legal Christian church in Aswan. The protestors were asking for the removal of the mayor of Aswan who filed fraudulent paperwork stating that the church was built without a license. No one pressed any charges for this act.

At least 40 Christians were killed by Muslim military and police during the Cairo protest, along with some who were literally crushed by tanks and whose bodies were disposed of in the Nile River.
