Muslims shield Christian churches

Over at The Deacon’s Bench, we found this story about religious solidarity:
Egypt’s majority Muslim population stuck to its word Thursday night. What had a been a promise of solidarity to the weary Coptic community, was honoured, when thousands of Muslims showed up at Coptic Christmas eve mass services in churches around the country and at candle light vigils held outside.

This is a story worth the read.
