Summary
Article summary: 

The author briefly outlines the nationalist cooperation and generally peaceful coexistence of Muslims and Christians in Egypt over the last century. Yet in view of certain repeated accusations of Coptic Christians he asks the questions: Is there a deterioration in the principle of citizenship that started in the middle of the nineteenth century and was tried to be established in our century that is about to end? Have the Coptic requests remained without solutions throughout the century? Is there a minority that wants to gain even by raising foreigners against their country?...
