Kamāl writes: "Some Brother Copts, as part of their repeated, angry discussion of the al-‘Umrāniyyah events, say, 'How could Copts be killed, while there were no deaths among the Brotherhood in the election demonstrations in Alexandria? Why did the police use live ammunition in al-‘Umrāniyyah and not in Alexandria?'"
The writer comments, "This is not a nation of Copts versus the Brotherhood. It is a nation for all Egyptians. Every citizen...should observe the law."
Kamāl continues, "The Brotherhood demonstration was for electoral reasons and even though they organized various planned processions...they are cunning enough not to get too violent. They used stones against the police, not Molotov cocktails."
The author claims, "It was different at al-‘Umrāniyyah; matters developed to the point of stoning a state building and the governorate headquarters, as well as the use of Molotov cocktails. A number of policemen were injured. In such situations, religion does not protect its adherent, whether Muslim or Christian. The perpetrator of the crime has to be dealt with appropriately, especially if matters are headed towards a Fitnah Ṭā’ifīya that threatens national security."
