Eye on the world: The ultimate defense

In “A good defense against terrorist hateThe Christian Science Monitor reports: “As Islamic State loses its base in Iraq and Syria, its followers are taking territory elsewhere. One place is Egypt, which could provide the militant group with greater access to Africa. Since December, an ISIS-affiliated group in Egypt has adopted a tactic aimed at rallying Egypt’s Muslims to its side: It is killing Christians, which make up 10 percent of the population. There’s just one problem. Many of the country’s Muslims are coming to the aid of wounded or fleeing Christians, even housing them…. One reason Christian groups in Egypt have survived for centuries is that they often react with forgiveness toward their tormentors. They do, of course, seek more security and justice from the government. But their gracious response to violence has helped to disarm hostility and open a dialogue between faiths.”
