Alongside Persecuted Christians in Egypt

Coming Together After New Year's Eve Church Bombing


'They Hate Us' [click to read] by Kristen Chick in Jewish World Review.

"Christians, who make up about 10 percent of Egypt's population, have long accused the government of discrimination and injustice, feelings that have only escalated this year. Officials are already working in overdrive to prevent the bombing from deepening the rising tension between Christians and Muslims. But the startling violence of the attack is also likely to exaggerate the growing distrust and isolation that Copts feel from their government."
