Egypt: pressure cooker ready to explode

Egypt (MNN) — Talk is cheap. At least, that’s how it feels to the religious minority groups in Egypt. Greg Musselman is a spokesman with the Voice of the Martyrs Canada. “You’ve got a radical element of the Sunni Islamism religion that is stirring up things. It’s causing more hatred toward Shia Muslims, which is a very small minority in Egypt, and they don’t look at them as being ‘real’ Muslims.” Musselman says over the weekend, Sunnis murdered four Shia and little was done about it. President Morsi promised justice, but “it’s really hollow words.” The lackluster response is infuriating already upset Egyptians. “We see the Church there gaining strength, and many ministries that are working in Egypt [are] doing amazing things. In the midst of difficulty and persecution, [pray] that the Church would be strong.” Egypt is bracing for explosive violence this weekend, and believers are raising the alarm. Will you pray with them? “Christians are fearful that this is going to escalate because of what’s taking place amongst these more militant groups.”
