CWN Editor's Note: Coptic Ortodox Patriarch Tawadros II rejects the notion that Egypt’s Christians face persecution, despite occasional bouts of violence against Copts. To speak of persecution, he said, is to give “a distorted image of the situation in Egypt.” He explained that sometimes “there is a problem between the different communities in a village,” but “there is no persecution.”
