Article summary: 

Dr. Muhammad Badī', the murshid (Guide) of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) emphasised the need for Muslim and Christians to work together “for the good of Egypt” in his speech in Suez the day before yesterday (July 26). Some Salafists joked and rejected his defense of Christian Egypt, but Badī' asked him to be quiet and show respect or leave the mosque in which the speech was being held. Badī' said, “we are all political forces and must all stand up on Friday.... for the good of all Egypt.”
