Remember Alexandria and the Coptic Church
This New Year's holiday, remember the Church of Egypt. The 'Two Saints' church bombing took the lives of 23 people in total.
Correspondent Jayson Casper for the Cairo-based Arab-West report observes:
It has been a difficult spell for Egypt as a whole, and for its Christians in particular. This year opened with a revolution holding great promise of Muslim-Christian unity, but has been largely displaced with liberal-Islamist political competition and attacks on Copts in Atfih, Imbabah, Maspero, and elsewhere. The nation is trembling, but some hopeful Copts see connections, in which God intervenes to avenge his children.
