A fine Egyptian

(July 17, 2013)
Check out this cool guy being interviewed from the BBC studio in Cairo. I think he was from the Muslim Brotherhood. The anchor lady was asking him about a church that alleged MB supporters had burned down (if I caught all this correctly!) Allegedly, it was burned because the MB supporters blamed the Coptic Christians in Egypt for having agitated against former president Morsi.

Here's how the conversation went:

The fine Egyptian: No, no, we don’t defend burning churches and killing Shias, but guess what, just guess what the Coptic Christian Egyptian pope said the other day! He said x, y, and z (didn’t catch what), and so, as you can see, some Christians in Egypt are just beyond all reason and all dialogue!

Anchor: but can you see why these church burnings are going to lead some minorities to feel unsafe, and immigrate away from Egypt.

The fine Egyptian: no! it’s not our fault. It’s actually everyone else’s fault (not sure how, but he twisted it around in some way like that.)
