 Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak publicly condemned on November 6 threats by the Qaeda in Iraq against Egypt's Coptic Christians vowing he would protect them. After claiming responsibility for the violent attack on a church in Baghdad the group threatened to target the region's Christians if the Coptic Church failed to free two priests' wives held against their will after converting to Islam.
 
The Coptic Church however denies the women had converted to Islam and abstained from commenting whether they were being held against their will.
 
In a statement the Muslim Brotherhood vehemently opposed both the attack and threat calling on all Muslims to unite and protect the holy places of all the monotheistic religions, stressing it was a religious duty. It emphasized that Islam was a religion which promoted only peace and tolerance. The MB described the attack as criminal and heinous.


Top Azhar cleric Dr. Ahmed Altayeb also denounced the attack stressing it was something to be rejected and strongly denounced, emphasizing that it served none but those who want to spark discord and target national unity.

Yes but Tughlag
Where was this Mubarak when Israel was killing over 1500 innocents in Gaza? Where was this Mubarak when Israel was demolishing Mosques in Palestine? Where was this Mubarak when US was killing thousands of Muslims in Iraq and Afghanistan? Where was this Mubarak when Israel was bombarding south Lebanon? Why this Mubarak raising his head and voice only for non Muslims? Egyptians may be fools to tolerate this idiotic Mubarak but not other Muslims. Wait and see, one day Egypt will be isolated from Muslim world.

Although Mubarak can be criticized for a variety of reasons; is it not fair to say the dichotomy he is promoting between fundamentalist Islamic factions and - tolerant, genuine - ones something of praise we can tip our hats to? For decades Copts & Muslims in Egypt have cohabited in peace alongside each other without the intrusion of outside forces. What do the dozens of mothers, daughters, sons, fathers, uncles, aunts, and innocent Christians in Iraq have to do with a domestic conflict in Egypt? I for one, praise Mubarak for his support for humanity and his rhetoric against factions who promote murder in the name of religion. I look forward to the day the rest of the Middle East can look to Egypt as a model for the real brotherhood Real Egyptians have; where the greater of us respect the boundaries of Freedom of Religion.

Self serving AL
We all know that the Fundementalists dont care about anything except servicing their own agenda, they take children and those with week self esteem and make them blow themselves up. Why dont the these self-proclaimed leaders strap bombs on themselves and do what they send innocents to do? in about a week we wouldnt have a problem with them either they do as they preach or shut the @$&$ up!!!!!!! either way they will be gone
