Egypt's Coptic Christian minority comprises only 10 percent of the country's populace. Despite protestations to the contrary, the Tahrir Revolution seems to have done precious little to create a sense of equality between the majority – Muslims – and Christians.

As they did prior to the fall of former President Hosni Mubarak, Muslim extremists have repeatedly targeted Coptic Christians over the past several months
