48. Interview with Coptic Bishop Bīsantī

48. Interview with Coptic Bishop Bīsantī
Article pages:

Date of source:

Author: 
Ashraf ‘Abd al-Ghafur
Summary
Article summary: 
Al-Jumhūrīyah on Wednesday interviewed Bishop Bīsantī of Helwan and al-Ma‘ṣarah.
 
Asked about how he views the scene in Egypt after the bombing of the Church of the Two Saints, the bishop said “following the Two Saints Church incident I experienced friendliness from my brother Muslims even greater than the already existing friendliness and love, because they felt that the Copts were hurt and struck at badly in that terrorist incident.”
 
When asked if the Unified Law for Building Houses of Worship would solve the difficulties surrounding the construction of churches, Bīsantī replied that there are two basic conditions for the law to succeed: that a church is [allowed to be] built with the same ease with which a mosque can be built, and that there be no conditions that impede the building of churches.
 
Queried on whether the state is tardy in complying with Coptic demands, the bishop concurred, then cited two examples of Copts being denied appointments they deserved. “What I want to say is that a Copt should receive his rights so long as he merits them, and to take them easily, not after a struggle.”
 
The interviewer then asked if the bishop supported a quota for Copts in parliament, to which he responded: “Has the [women’s] quota devalued women’s worth in Egypt?” and when the interviewer pointed out that Pope Shenouda had opposed the quota he said: “he did but owing to the situation currently existing he said there was ‘no solution’ except the quota or voting by the list system.”
 
Regarding his support or otherwise for cancellation of the entry for religion on identity cards, Bīsantī said he supports this “because I am a citizen, let my religion be what I wish [it to be], as long as I am honest and loyal to my country and my countrymen.”
 
When asked if the church had become ‘a state within a state,’ the bishop responded “No. There is a reply to that [claim], for the state has clear powers; has anyone not submitted to those powers? Has anyone refused to pay taxes, for example? … Secondly, if we assume the truth of that allegation, where would this Coptic state be. What happened in Sudan did so because they do have two states, in the north and the south, and it is impossible for that to be repeated here; we have churches, relics, and a presence from Alexandria [in the north of Egypt] to Aswan [Egypt’s southernmost city].”

Summary
Article summary: 
Azhar Grand Imām Dr. Ahmad al-Tayyib says that apostatizing others is a threat to society, according to Rose al-Yūsuf.
 
“Takfir and rash accusations of iniquity are the most important phenomenon threatening Islamic society,” said al-Tayyib at a meeting for the Sixth World Forum of Azhar graduates.
 
He said that such ideas have spread despite unanimity among scholars that no Muslim should be apostatized.
 
For his part, Dr. ‘Alī Jum‘ah, the Egyptian Muftī, told the meeting that Islamic unity is the “only way out” for Muslims, and that improving education is the hope for a better future.

Summary
Article summary: 

Representatives attending the closing session of the Islamic Parliamentary Conference in Abu Dhabi say that Egypt is an example of genuine coexistence between Muslims and Christians, according to state-supported al-Jumhūrīyah.

 

The paper says that conference attendees expressed their support for Egypt’s rejection of any interference by Western powers that claim they are protecting Christians in Muslim countries.

 

People’s Assembly Speaker Ahmad Fathī Surūr announced that the conference had sent a clear message to the Western world regarding the Muslim position on this issue.

 

Surūr said that the conference’s closing communiqué will be sent to national parliaments around the globe, including the European Parliament.

 

Last week, the Azhar recalled its ambassador to the Vatican over statements by Pope Benedict calling for the protection of Middle Eastern Christians in light of the recent church attack in Alexandria. The Azhar also announced that it has frozen religious dialogue with the Vatican, saying that the statements represented an interference with internal Egyptian affairs.
