Why Egypt’s Muslims Are Bitter Towards Coptic Christians

An analysis of this story.
At a time when Coptic Christians are suffering abuses “every two or three days” in Egypt, a Muslim woman in America has made a video calling for more Muslim hostility against the Christian minority, in this case, in the guise of an economic boycott.
