An Egyptian priest with a $60 million bounty on his head from al-Qaida says he has no fear of being killed by the radical extremists.

"It doesn’t matter with me," Father Zakaria Botros said Wednesday during an appearance on Newsmax TV’s "America’s Forum." "They put millions but I don't care because I speak the truth for everybody and my aim is good news for everybody.

"I expose Islam, I expose the bad behavior and works of Muslims and especially the terrorists."

Botros said he lives for Christ, an attitude that has no room for fear.

"If I live, I live for Christ. To die is a win," he said. "So I'm happy to be killed in order to go to my savior and Lord Jesus Christ in heaven. So I don't care about that. I live as normal without fear.

"The Bible said to us more than 3,000 times, don't fear. So believe in God. He protects us. If he wants to end our life on Earth, it's a win to go there in heaven and see our beloved Lord. So I don't change anything in my life."

Botros, a Coptic Christian priest, was twice imprisoned in Egypt, for a year in 1981, and then given a life sentence in 1989. He was released on the condition that he leave the country. He went to Australia and then England before coming to the United States 20 years ago, he said.

"Fortunately, everything in Egypt has changed since," said Botros.
