Raymond Ibrahim on CBN News: 'Will Egypt's el-Sisi Protect Christians?'
On April 24, CBN News Senior International Reporter Gary Lane interviewed me about Egypt. Lane's write-up, "Will Egypt's el-Sisi Protect Christians?" as well as the three part interview, follow:
With only one month to go before Egyptians elect a new president, it looks like former Army Chief General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi will be the likely winner. The interim government says international observers will monitor the polling to assure the integrity of the electoral process.
But who will give assurances that violent acts against Christians will be minimized in the months ahead?
Not el-Sisi, CBN News contributior Raymond Ibrahim said. Not the Egyptain military, police, or any other political candidate who may become president.
Ibrahim says that's because a mob mentality dominates Egypt. This is most apparent on Fridays, after prayers in the mosque. That's when radical imams preaching an extremist intepretation of the Koran incite their followers to attack the "infidels."
