Summary
Article summary: 

Farīdah al-Naqqāsh laments how many Christians are leaving Iraq, Lebanon, and Palestine because of the "increasing influence of armed Islamic extremism that targets Christians."

She refers to a recent conference held in Lyons, France to commemorate three rational Arab intellectuals who passed away this year.

Summary
Article summary: 

A new committee put together by The National Council for Human Rights is finishing up a new anti-terrorism draft law to take effect in December. The new draft law, which will be pitched to the new People's Assembly’s Legislative Committee, would replace the current emergency law if accepted. According to the editorial, experts claim the new draft law is even worse than the existing emergency law, which is allegedly one of the worst the world has ever seen. The article also claims that the existing Anti-Terrorism Law is more than capable of dealing with terrorism in Egypt, which has been on the decline in recent years.
