Since the Arab Spring of 2011, Egypt has been a focal point of political renewal … and unrest. Much of the conflict in Egypt is between a secular minded ruling class and a resurgence of fundamentalist Islam. What will take shape in Egypt? A Westernized secular democracy? A return to a traditional Islamic state?
What many do not realize is that there is another group of people in Egypt often caught in the middle: the Coptic Christians. It is a situation where many other Christians, like me, here in America, find it difficult to comprehend.
