The Washington Post published an article today on the situation of the Copts in Egypt. The article highlighted some good points, but I regret the author's suggestion that the church-centered social programs encouraged by H.H. Pope Shenouda III are in some significant way the cause of tension in Egypt. I think the author confuses the remedy with the problem. In any case, H.H., much to the dismay of his western critics, has always encouraged Egyptian unity and for Egypt to solve Egypts problems.
