Neighbors who pray together, stay together: Tension and tolerance on Easter
A string of attacks on Egypt’s Coptic Christians has left the region shaken. Daesh promised more attacks after targeting the community in the Sinai Peninsula, and last week, on Palm Sunday, bombs struck two Coptic churches, killing 45. Over the last several years, religious minorities of all stripes have been under attack in Syria, Iraq, and Yemen. Even quiet Jordan has heavy security presence stationed outside churches ahead of Easter. But lest these attackers succeed in spreading sectarianism and dividing communities, now seems like a good time to remember all the times Muslims and Christians come together to pray in solidarity.
