Al-Qaeda and Christians
The leader of Al-Qaeda is against the fighting of Christians in Egypt. Apparently, Ayman Al-Zawahri wants his band of followers to focus on resisting Egyptian. He has said: "We have to be busy confronting the Americanized coup of el-Sissi and establish an Islamic government instead". To put this into context, the Coptic community backed the coup which overthrew Mohammed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood leader, and, subsequently, were violently attacked for this by the Muslims. Is this a rare show of diplomacy or is it a cunning strategic move to outfoot the West? Whatever the reason I pray that the Christians in Egypt will be able to find some peace among the ruins of Egypt.
