Read Change Comes at a Price for Egyptian Christians at Mission Network News.
"Egypt's new cabinet got to work this week, rolling sleeves up and tackling big problems. Outside, former President Mohammed Morsi's supporters were protesting. Greg Musselman, a spokesman for the Voice of the Martyrs Canada says, "It appears it's in organized chaos in some ways, but then on the streets, you're seeing all this violence and the Muslim Brotherhood. They're certainly making their point being heard, but also using violence to try to get Mohamed Morsi back into office." It seems the price of the political uproar is being paid by the Christians. Musselman cited multiple attacks over the last two weeks by Muslim hardliners targeting churches, ministries, and believers. Will it get better? "The hope is that with the changing of the guard again that they will be more sympathetic to Christians. There may be less persecution coming from the state government, but again, with the radical groups who are not going to sit still, the fear is that these attacks will continue to increase." Believers are asking you to pray with them. Find details at "Featured Links" at MissionNetworkNews.org."
