Edit: The photo above is from Kath.net. As the Muslim Brotherhood calls for a "Friday of Fury”, there are some inspiring events as well. Alipius from Klosterneuburger Marginalen took note of the fact that Muslims confronted violent demonstrators and insurrectionists, to protect churches in Alexandria. Here’s our translation of this excerpt from the report:
The news portal Al-Ahram reports, in the port city of Alexandria, the participants of a protest march of the Muslim Brotherhood were stopped, as the demonstrators advanced upon a Coptic church. According to reports he following: “With our souls and our blood we sacrifice ourselves for our Coptic brothers” and “We are all Egyptians -- Millions against the Muslim Brotherhood”.Alipius suggests that more churches would have burned had not Egyptians, and as other reports have it, the Egyptian Army itself, stepped in and tried to stop it.
According to the above referenced reports hundreds of Egyptians have perished in the violence.
