Article summary: 

On Saturday, May 7, 2011, more than 50,000 people attended a march of the Muslim Brotherhood and salafīs in Giza.

Protesters emphasized the unity of the MB and salafīsts, chanting that both aim at applying Islamic sharī'ah in Egypt.

Salafī preacher Safwat Hijāzī condemned the burning of a church in Imbābah.

Similarly, salafī preacher Muhammad Hasān argued that “Egypt does not belong to Muslims alone,” and that “Copts are protected by Islam. They need not resort to the United States for that.”
