Will Grigg: Christians and Muslims Against the State

From William Grigg at LRC Blog at, his entire post:

Several weeks ago, following terrorist attacks on worshipers at Coptic Christian services, hundreds — perhaps thousands — of Egyptian Muslims volunteered their services as “human shields” as their Christian neighbors celebrated the birth of Christ.

In recent days, Egyptian Christians protesting in the streets of Cairo have joined hands to create a protective barricade for their Muslim neighbors, shielding them from State-inflicted terrorist violence during prayers.

This is exactly what the cynical, bloody-minded people engineering a “clash of civilizations” want to prevent.

A better world is possible:

“…what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?” (Micah 6:8)

On a lighter note, UK's Guardian has pictures of make-shift "helmets" worn by the anti-Mubarak protesters.
