On this day

Today is Martin Luther King’s Day in the United States. On this day it worth remembering that what will happen to the Copts in Egypt in the next few years will test the souls of all involved. Mostly it will test the Copts who will come under severe pressure, and these hardy resilient Egyptian people will undoubtedly show their mettle. But it will be also a test of the souls of others: the well-meaning Muslims who will realize that defeating the narrow agendas of self-professed guardians of Islam will in fact strengthen Islam and Muslims. It will test the souls of people outside the region, mainly American and Europeans who need to engage with belief and passion on behalf of freedom of conscience in a manner that bridges any ideological or partisan divisions.
