34. Open letter to former US Congressman Pastor Ed McNeely for writing President Bush a letter with wrong claims about Christian girls being kidnapped by Muslims
Date of source:

Summary
Article summary: 

Dr. Selim Naguib and Pastor McNeely have been writing inflammatory letters falsely claiming that Muslims do kidnap Christian girls in Egypt. There is no reason to doubt their sincerity but they have followed their sentiments without checking facts. The consequences of such false claims are severe since they increase the already strong feeling among Muslims that they are unfairly attacked by Christians which in turn creates very negative feelings about Christians. That hardly affects Christians in the West but it does affect Christians in Muslim countries. The comment provides background information provided by several Christian leaders in Egypt and asks Western Christians to refrain from making emotional statements on issues without checking them.
