Coptic activist and journalist Rami Jan said that Christians were not subjected to any harm in the rule of the Muslim Brotherhood and that any President of Egypt has to establish dialogue with the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamic groups and movements if he wants real stability for the country.
With regard to the "Christians Against The Coup" movement which Jan recently inaugurated, he said, in a telephone call with the satellite TV channel Al-Jazeera Live Egypt, "Members of this movement do not belong to any political religious stream.
"We represent the voice of truth in this country. The majority of the movement’s membership belongs to the mainstream liberal current that tells the truth in the face of any rulers whoever they may be. If the putschists dare arrest members of this current, too, as they do now all the symbols of the Islamic movement, that will be hammering the last nail in their coffin."
Jan added, "I do not know what logic these putschists use... turning a blind eye to the massive numbers of Egyptians demonstrating against them in the street, even claiming that they are but a small ragtag mob, while stressing that Egypt's renaissance will be on their hands within the year!
"Don’t they see the economic devastation suffered by Egyptians? What renaissance can be achieved in a homeland where a citizen cannot afford a kilo of potatoes?"
