Egyptian Clash of Cultures Always in the Extremes - Coptic Christianity Always in Islamic Crosshairs

Reader comment on item: A Century of the Muslim Brotherhood
in response to reader comment: Egyptians must reclaim their pro-life tradition

If there is one place where Christianity is supremely exposed (not that Christianity in any place on the globe is not targeted, except maybe in America-though that is changing also); it is in Egypt where Islam took a very deep hold and has been merciless towards any expression of the Gospel message of the Savior.
It has been remarked that the Coptic expression of salvation in the Jewish Savior is one that was not affected the same way as the Gospel message that made it into the European culture and the Muslim attitude towards the Coptic way is by many appearances, more treacherously mistreated by observation of certain witnesses. If any segment of Egyptian life can be construed as a way to peace in Egyptian life, it is in the way of the Copts.
Try telling that to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt; it will not fare well.
