The Sohag issue seemed to be settled. Expatriate Copts stopped sending faxes and the bishop had stopped making trouble. Then on October 25 the Sunday Telegraph came out and blew the story up. Members of the foreign press in Egypt scoffed at many of the statements in an article of Al Ahram.
Bishop Bakhoum of Sohag, Maragha and Al-Munsha’a said that the statement of Pope Shenouda III confirmed that what happened in the Al-Koshh events was an ordinary incident, and it has nothing to do with Egypt’s national unity. What foreign papers published were exaggerations that defame Egypt, and...

The instrument of Western propaganda is spreading lies since the Cold War until today.
Egypt and Hosni Mubarak are the targets. Leave all these weak details, these highly elegant words and the human rights pretensions. It is just a game that those conspirators played against Egypt. What is this persecution that they are taking about? We smell the odor of the dollars that are paying...
