Egypt’s Islamist Equation

The bad treatment of Egypt’s Coptic minority by the military—which has been touted as Egypt’s “savior” in the media—demonstrates an Islamist bent, one that leads to a simple equation:

Because the Islamist worldview is interrelated, an Egyptian leadership that is anti-Christian, will by default be equally anti-American and anti-Israel—for all are infidels, all are the enemy. The only difference is that the Copts are weak, whereas America and Israel are currently not—thus unabashed animosity for the former, latent hostility for the latter.
