‘Militant Islam Is Winning’ in Egypt

From a friend of mine writing from Canada: 

Violent jihadis massacre Christians at prayer in a church. The universal pastor of the Church expresses solidarity with the fresh martyrs and calls upon Egypt’s government to protect its own citizens at prayer, a position surely shared by the Egyptian government. The response is that both mosque and state suspend relations with the Holy See, as if the Church was the aggressor. It is a madness only made comprehensible by fear. The moderates, such as they are in Egypt, are deathly afraid of the militants. And well they should, for the militants are on the rise.
