Egypt’s Islamist Equation

by Raymond Ibrahim

The bad treatment of Egypt’s Coptic minority by the military — which has been touted as Egypt’s “savior” in the media — demonstrates an Islamist bent, one that leads to a simple equation: Because the Islamist worldview is interrelated, an Egyptian leadership that is anti-Christian, will by default be equally anti-American and anti-Israel — for all are infidels, all are the enemy. The only difference is that the Copts are weak, whereas America and Israel are currently not — thus unabashed animosity for the former, latent hostility for the latter.
