Persecution at the Polls
(In re “Laboratory of Islamism,” August 19) I have read several articles stating that the Muslim Brotherhood actually threatened Coptic Christians into not voting last year in Egypt’s election. Yet the election was called “democratic.” Is this true that Christians and other non-Muslims were threatened with violence if they voted, and if so, doesn’t that bring into question the issue of how “democratic” the election was of Mr. Morsi?
