Dr. Pipes

There is no doubt that as per the mayor of Jersey City the influx of many Copts has been great. He estimated that the total Coptic population in Jersey City to be around 25,000 and he regards them as outstanding citizens and that they are very hard working people that appreciate the family and their Church and their community

And he even named one of the streets in this little Egypt after the late Pope Shenouda the late Coptic Pope

There is no doubt with the events in Egypt that more Copts will be moving to Jersey City

As for the recent crime of the two young men that were killed one have to wait and see but we all have to keep in mind that Copts trust the legal system here in the US and that the killer will be found and punished for his crime just like the case of the Armanious family compare this with justice for any Copt who is killed by Muslims in Egypt where Muslim criminals get away with murder
