Article summary: 

This press review presents a summary of a series of articles published in Rose al-Yūsuf.

Hānī Labīb writes about the history of the relationship between the pope as the head of the Coptic Orthodox

Church, and the president of the Republic of Egypt from the mandate of Jamāl ‘Abd al-Nāsir until the

present era. ‘Abd al-Nāsir’s mandate was characterized by national unity in society as a whole. Al-

Sādāt’s mandate was characterized by a “sectarian regression.” Mubārak’s mandate can be considered the time of

restoring the lost confidence and gradually realizing the basis of citizenship. Mubārak dealt with the Coptic issue with

a distant view and with wisdom.
