Egypt May Not Be What Media Portrays

I have heard many accounts like the one shown in this photograph, where Egypt's Coptic Christians surround Muslim protesters at prayer time in order to protect them from attacks. Also, after the Muslim Brotherhood bombed a church, the Muslims attended the next Christian service to use themselves as human shields.

The Coptic Christian Church was founded in Ethiopia and can trace its roots back to the Book of Acts, where the Apostle Phillip preaches the gospel to, and baptizes, a member of the Ethiopian Royal Court. About 10% of Egypt's population is Coptic Christian. They are routinely treated as 2nd class citizens.

Some people are warning us that the inevitable result of the collapse of the Mubarack government will be an Egypt run by the Muslim Brotherhood. Based on the reports I am getting from the undernet, I don't believe that.
