I spoke yesterday to a Christian Egyptian friend who now lives in NZ. She is very concerned for her sister in Cairo, who lives about 20km from downtown. She is terrified to leave her house, food is impossible to buy, there are continual gun shots and looting.
After this murder at New Year, the Christians (10% of the population) live in a much heightened fear of persecution.
The people who protest in the streets are seeking "freedom" but I strongly suspect that they will get the opposite.
Enslavement by a minority of fanaticals, far worse than anything Mubarak condoned.
As for the 8 million Christians. I fear that these days are sealing their fate.
And probably Israel's as well.
