I feel for your people
Jersey City USA | 3 January 2011
I live in Jersey City and was introduced to Egyptian Copts for the first time in July 2009. The giveaway was the tattoo on the right wrist of all Copts. Never seeing it before, I had to ask about it. I then learned about how all of you are persecuted and I am truly sorry for what took place today (the church bombing).
Can someone please tell me why Arab Muslims and Christian Muslims speak differently (those from Egypt)? I almost offended a Christian by saying as-salam alaykum? Shouldn\'t Egyptian Arabic all be the same regardless of religious affiliation?
