Enough is enough says Egyptian Muslims.

 

It may not be a well known fact within our western culture that the Orthodox and Coptic churches celebrate Christmas on a different day than the majority of the churches in the western world do.

On New Years eve, 21 Coptic Christians were killed by Islamic terrorists in an All Saints Church in Alexandria. On Thursday night; as Christians gathered to celebrate the Christmas eve mass throughout Egypt; thousands of Egyptian Muslims came and surrounded these churches in a show of support and offered their own bodies as human shields for the Christians to celebrate and worship in peace.

One well known Egyptian said; we either live together or we die together.

While there are vast differences between the Islamic and Christian faiths; I do indeed hope and pray that this movement will gain ground, not only in Egypt, but will move throughout all the Islamic world.
