There are a lot of folks in Egypt who don't subscribe to the jihadists' agenda. How do we know? We know because large numbers of muslims (including the two sons of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak) showed up at Coptic Christian churches on their Christmas Eve (January 6) Midnight Masses, offering themselves as human shields against the threats by Islamist extremists. The big winner, the Egypt for All organization with its symbol of a cross within a crescent. (A partial image is below.)
And now we see Christians protecting anti-regime Muslims, at their prayers, from thugs sent by the regime.Christians acting as they normally do, and Muslims acting as they should. We need to see a lot more similar cases.
