The Forgotten Copts...

Copt protest in Egypt ends
We rarely hear about the Copts, this Orthodox Christian Monocephalous Egyptian church, whose followers are - despite being a tiny minority - some of the oldest inhabitants of Egypt. They are not always treated well, in Egypt, and some discrimination is exerted against them in the country, but it often passes unnoticed in our radars. It is the old story of Christian minorities in Muslim countries - and vice-versa. Somehow, the International Community will have to devote some resources in examining how to deal with issues of cross-faith relationships, and conversions. Just a thought.
