Christmas Mass was held in Alexandria Sunday, marking the Orthodox Christmas, following the Julian calendar, where the holy day falls on January 7.

Despite the threat of terrorist attacks, with religious minorities facing pressure in Egypt, the festivities continued.

As worshipper Beshoy Fawzi explained: “We came today to pray, we aren’t afraid of terrorists or their actions, we are praying like usual.”

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.

To h**l with zionism, and their proxy terrorists.


Terrorists are Islamists if you didn’t noticed.
In Islam jihad is mandatory and Islam always attacked others’ religions from the start. Ask Indians : ghazis killed 270-350 millions of them, burnt libraries and universities, etc!
Don’t you remember it was caliph Uthman that burnt down the biggest library on Earth, the great Alexandria one?
Islam was born with the sword and, when you live by the sword, you die by the sword…
