Israel is the Middle East's sole democracy, a safe place for people of all faiths to live and worship. Such is not the case elsewhere, however. The New York Daily News reports that a mob of Muslims in Egypt brutally attacked an elderly Christian woman, while also looting and burning the homes of other Christians:
An armed Muslim mob stripped an elderly Christian woman and paraded her naked on the streets in an attack last week in which seven Christian homes were also looted and torched in a province south of the Egyptian capital...
President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi called for the culprits to be held accountable and gave the military a month to restore property damaged during the violence, at no cost to the owners.
In a statement issued Thursday by his office, el-Sissi said Egypt appreciates the role of “glorious Egyptian women” and that “the rights and the protection of their dignity are a humanitarian and patriotic commitment before being a legal and constitutional one.”
