More than 60 Egyptian churches have been attacked, vandalized and in some cases set on fire since the bloody attack by security forces on Islamist camps in Cairo last month. The military regime is blaming the Muslim Brotherhood for these attacks against Christians. However, a high-ranking Western official said there’s little evidence of that. The attacks in some cases involved Islamist vigilantes working with thugs. Most of the attacks on churches have been in the Nile Valley. Some of the attacks seem motivated by revenge against Christians for their support of the military coup that ousted President Mohamed Morsi (Washington Post, August 20).
