Good Deed: Egyptian Muslims Shield Christians At Christmas
Here is wonderful proof that even in Egypt (home of the radical Muslim Brotherhood), most Muslims are not radicals bent on killing innocent Christians. From Ahramonline:
Egypt’s majority Muslim population stuck to its word Thursday night. What had been a promise of solidarity to the weary Coptic community, was honoured, when thousands of Muslims showed up at Coptic Christmas eve mass services in churches around the country and at candle light vigils held outside.There are still serious problems in Islam, or at least Islamic countries, when it comes to the attitudes toward those of other religions. But this ray of hope is heartening.
From the well-known to the unknown, Muslims had offered their bodies as “human shields” for last night’s mass, making a pledge to collectively fight the threat of Islamic militants and towards an Egypt free from sectarian strife.
