Coptic Christian Pope Blasts Egypt’s Islamist President

The Jihad continues on Egyptian Christians. But few will hear much about it, thanks to the enemedia.

The leader of Egypt’s Coptic Orthodox Church on Tuesday blasted the country’s Islamist president over his handling of the recent deadly sectarian violence, including an attack on the main cathedral in Cairo.

The remarks by Pope Tawadros II underscore rising Muslim-Christian tensions in Egypt — and they show a level of boldness, especially considering the abuses that many Christians have faced in the region. They were Tawadros’ first direct criticism of President Mohammed Morsi since he was enthroned in November as the spiritual leader of Egypt’s Orthodox Christians.
