A series of demonstrations were held, the most recent on October 8, as Muslim fundamentalists protested against Pope Shenouda III, the head of the Coptic Orthodox Church. Among the bizarre and unsubstantiated claims made by these groups were: that Coptic Churches are holding Muslim women against their will, in attempts to force conversions; that Coptic churches and monasteries are used to store weapons; and that Copts are planning to revolt and set up a separate state. There was a question of whether the demonstrations were instigated by the state security forces.

 Shocked

On Wednesday, Pope Shenouda gave his weekly sermon, which was attended by 10,000 Copts. This took place with no disruption.

Mubarrak has spent the last few decades fighting against the radicalization of Egyptian society. Why would he encourage this kind of activity?

Divide and conquer.  Who else to save us from the crisis?

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
