Divided Egypt Putting Christians in the Crosshairs

Ad Feedback

Protests and rallies are taking place in Egypt almost daily now, weeks after Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi was removed from office.

Morsi supporters have taken to the streets, demanding the Muslim Brotherhood leader be reinstated to the presidency.

"I'm saying to Major General Sissi, you betrayed us and carried out the coup. But God will punish you if you are not implementing his rules," Morsi supporter Mohammed Abdul Mageed said.

Meanwhile, even larger numbers of anti-Muslim Brotherhood protestors also held rallies.

CBN News Sr. International Reporter Gary Lane spoke more with Raymond Ibrahim on Chrsitian World News, July 26:

 

"I am representing the majority of the Egyptians," anti-Brotherhood demonstrator Manal Helmy said. "I am proving to the world that this is not a coup; it's a real revolution and the military is doing what we asked them to do."

Newly appointed President Adli Mansour says all Egyptians must work together for peace. He issued a warning to those who threaten stability.

"We will firmly punish those who kill innocents," he warned.

As the death and injury tolls continue to rise, many wonder if rival factions are headed for a showdown.

"I foresee based on precedent, civil war," author Raymond Ibrahim predicted last April.
 
In his book, Crucified Again: Exposing Islam's New War on Christians, Ibrahim says Christians will be targeted for attack and their very existence threatened.
