Egyptian Copts, Muslims in confrontation

Catholic World News - July 28, 2011

Coptic Christians and Muslims clashed in a small Egyptian town, after a Muslim man battered a Christian woman in a dispute over the installation of a new bell in a local Coptic church.

The violence, and the slow reaction of police, point to the rising pressure on Egypt's Coptic minority since the fall of the Mubarak government.

    I long for the day when Egypt is out from under the cruel yoke of the false prophet and once again in Christian hands. God bless the brave Copts for standing their ground and showing the world by their example that Islam is not a religion of peace or of God.
