#MyJihad Egypt: Imam Goes to Church–See What Happens

Imam_Mazhar_Shaheen

by Garibaldi

On the Coptic Christmas holiday, Imam Mazhar Shaheen of the Omar Makram Mosque visited his friend and confidante the Pastor of the Qasr Al-Dubarah Church, Samih Morees, along with a thousand Muslims to extend well-wishes and greetings to their Christian neighbors. He was asked to speak, and his message was a resounding clarion call for tolerance, respect, dignity, humanity and unity amidst difference and tumult. He also stated that Christians and Muslims must be united against any foreign and internal plots at increasing sectarianism or imposing Imperialist/Colonialist designs on the Egyptian nation.

This is the type of story that Islamophobes wish to erase and suffocate because it does not fit their pre-set narrative regarding the role and position of Christians in the Middle East. They want an unholy war but it seems Juan Cole is correct, we are actually witnessing in the midst of uncertainty the strong possibilities of a flowering of Eastern Christianity.

    Well, just goes to show how much they love guns. They still think it’s the wild west.

  • Tanveer Khan

    Indeed.

  • Talking_fish_head

    predictable
    of course this is youtube we’re talking about, we human excrement has the power to write comments that satan thinks is to extream

  • Tanveer Khan

    A few commenters have said that.

  • Tanveer Khan

    Is there REALLY that much need for them? I mean ok some areas might be really dangerous but largescale gun ownership? Why not use something less lethal like those truncheons(i think thats what there called) the police use?

  • Tanveer Khan

    Anyone seen the recent comments? Slightly disturbing in my opinion.

    We can hope.

    I think there are now around 100, 000 signatures against him. I’m not a fan of Morgan but I agree with him on his stance against the gun lobby.

    they have hatered of both groups, alot of these “people” mix antisemitism with islamophobia and recycle some nazi tropes but replacing the word jew with muslim

    Only now they tend to do it with Muslims instead of Jews.

  • Talking_fish_head

    The loons are so predictable, they keep repeating the same old garbage that was considered old in the 19th century

  • Kirook

    I know, seeing this kind of thing warms my heart.

  • mindy1

  • mindy1

    I hope this inspires Muslims in other Muslim majority countries. Bullying minorities can go both ways. Take a cue from the Rohingya, and the Chechen. If the Prophet(pbuh) could have left the images of Jesus and his mother(pbut) in the Ka’abah, why are today’s Muslims so intolerant where they are a majority? That’s something to think about.
