Egypt's Brotherhood calls for protection of churches (Agence France-Presse, 11/03/10)

Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood urged the state to protect Christian places of worship after an al-Qaeda group in Iraq, which claimed a deadly attack on a church in Baghdad, issued a threat against Egypt's Coptic Church.

"The Muslim Brotherhood is stressing to all, and primarily Muslims, that the protection of holy places of all monotheistic religions is the mission of the majority of Muslims," the group said in a statement on its website late on Tuesday.

"The Brothers reject all stupid threats against Christian places of worship in Egypt issued by anyone and under any pretext," the group said.
