Armed guards have been placed around St. George (St. Girgis) Coptic Orthodox Church in Muharram Bik, Alexandria on the Egyptian Mediterranean Coast due to recent attacks from Muslim mobs. Massive Muslim riots, web threats and the stabbing of a Coptic nun have resulted from a report in an Egyptian weekly newspaper stating the church put on a play that opponents said “defamed Islam.” The play, “I Was Blind but Now I See,” was based on the 1990s movie, “The Terrorist,” which told the story of a poor Coptic University student who converted to Islam but later returned to Christianity.
