You have an interesting take on the plight of non-muslim Egyptians in the face of violent Islamic Jihad. The Copts, even beyond representing the very earliest Christian heritage also harken back to Egypt's pharaonic past, plumbing the deepest recesses of human history.
As Hellenism and the influence of Greece waned, even as the Pharaoh's influence slipped away, the forms, rituals, history and light has been carried into the present by the non-muslims of Egypt; the Coptic Christians represent an unbroken chain to man's earliest past. And for the last several centuries the bearers of Western thought have withstood being erased from history by the expansive monoculture espoused by adherents of the Mohammedan faith.

Awesome. Maybe all the religious nut jobs of the world will kill each other off and leave the people with any shred of intelligence left to inherit the Earth.
But how many peaceful moderate religious people or even atheists will be caught up in this or other such conflicts? If you believe its just extremists killing each other, you are severely mistaken.
