Egyptian Jewish minority overlooked while churches burn
The TImes of Israel speaks to one of the last remaining Jews in Cairo.
“Magda Haroun, the president of the Egyptian Jewish community, doesn’t enjoy hearing anti-Semitic slurs on the street. She gets nervous when she hears Egyptians are burning the churches of Coptic Christians, a much larger religious minority than the country’s tiny Jewish community. She assumes that most of her compatriots have forgotten there are any Jews left in Egypt”.
Ummm, we don’t think now is a very good time to be reminding them.
