    You are, of course, quoting Jose, the renoun expert in Egyptian Christian/Muslim Relations, who has posted his POV.

    Unhappily, he included a link to this

    [youtube]SSeO4cKUhAE[/youtube]

    An Al Jazerra report with the correspondant walking among what appear to be about a dozen "muslim protesters" and a phalax of police protecting...them? The Christians?

    At any rate if this is the best propaganda Al Jazerra can put together to demonstrate Muslim contempt for the terorist bombing of Alexandria Christians, I remain unimpressed.

    Sorry bout that,


    1. If one Muslim stood up for the Christians in Egypt its a first.
    2. And this may bring huge backlash for them.
    3. Lets see where this ends up.

    People putting their lives at risk to protect others is a Selfless act.

    Yes, Thank You Modbert.

    But this thread also illustrates the delimma that muslims face every day.

    We are constantly berated by people over negative things the media presents about muslims and Islam.

    Yet, when a very positive story like this comes out about muslims like this one.

    We still get negative responses of "is an anomaly" or "must be a hoax", and other derogatory comments.

    No wonder most muslims here feel isolated and remain silent about various issues concerning muslims and Islam.
