    Egypt's Christians Form Their Own Brotherhood

    On a Cairo rooftop recently, members of the new Christian Brotherhood are debating how to respond to the first major outbreak of Muslim-Christian violence since President Mohammed Morsi came into office in June.

    The incident in the village of Dahshour, south of Cairo, began as a personal spat between a Christian and a Muslim in a local laundry. It quickly escalated into communal violence, and eventually the entire Christian community — about 100 families — fled the village.

    Hossam Bahgat, the head of the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights, closely follows Christian-Muslim tensions.

    "This is the first time that we see this incident where the entire community fled for their life for fear of serious retribution," he says.

    A few families have since returned to the village, only to find their homes in ruins.

    With Morsi proving all of the critics wrong, I am surprised they need one!

    AJ - what is your take on Morsi's performance so far?

    It is early days yet, but it seems strange to me that people who lined up to predict how terrible Morsi would be have now fallen silent.

    Wouldn't it be better to give praise where praise is due?

    IJ -

    You are aware that Morsi has resigned from the MB, right?

    Rather than just link to blogs, why not actually discuss the issue?

    Here is the problem. Christians are going to have to start taking a few heads of their own. Then the world's anti Christian left will say "See how violent Christians are, it's the Crusades all over again".

    The numbers are too much against their favor in Egypt, if these Christians try any funny business the Muslims will over run them.

    That's the democrat's wet dream. If only they could bring that here, their Christian "problem" might finally be solved.
