Iata o stire interesanta, dar care nu s-a prea raspandit pentru ca nu se potriveste cu unele sabloane de gandire:
Demonstrantii crestini au celebrat astazi o slujba crestina in aer liber (pentru comemorarea victimele represiunii regimului Mubarak) in Piata Eliberarii din Cairo, in mijlocul musulmanilor. Musulmanii s-au solidarizat cu ei, au scandat “Mana in mana, suntem impreuna”, si au rostit impreuna “Tatal Nostru”, o rugaciune cunoscuta si musulmanilor. Puteti viziona video-ul Reuters aici.
Chiar si Fratia Musulmana a anuntat evenimentul pe site-ul ei. (Cine era fratia musulmana, nu erau radical-islamicii aia barbosi care voiau sa bage Egiptul in epoca de piatra si sa sara la beregata crestinilor? A, se pare ca nu…)
In continuare cateva relatari ale evenimentului (sursa):
“In a sign of unity, crowds in Tahrir Square are chanting “We are one, we are one” ahead of the prayers to be held at noon for those killed over the past 13 days of protest. “Muslims and Copts hand in hand for a new dawn to rise” is another chant and NadiaE wrote on Twitter: “Off to Tahrir to attend Christian mass. My father – a 73-yr-old ill, bearded conservative Muslim – is with me.”
“CAIRO: Christians and Muslims recited in unison the “Our Father” prayer in Tahrir on Sunday, a day intended to commemorate those killed in pro-democracy protests since Jan. 25.
Egypt’s Protestant Asr El-Dubara Church has played a big role in calling for a Christian prayer in the central Tahrir Square, in which protesters have camped since Jan. 25.
Protestant preacher Ihab El-Kharat led two sermons at 1 and 2 pm at the Square. “This is a blessed land. … Peace will always prevail in this country,” he told the tens of thousands that flocked to Tahrir, or Liberation Square.
“We are all one. Muslims and Christians are one,” he said.
This was proved true when a man who identified himself as Antoine, an Egyptian-French affiliated with the Catholic Church but only representing himself, recited the “Our Father” prayer.
The widely known Christian prayer was loudly recited after him by Muslims and Christians alike in a heartwarming show of unity. “
“Egypt’s Muslims and Christians united for the toppling of Mubarak’s regime
CAIRO – Joining hands against the regime of Egypt’s President Hosni Mubarak, Egyptian Muslim and Christian protestors shared funeral prayers in Tahrir square on Sunday, 6 February, for the victims of brutal security crackdowns on demonstrations.
“Nothing can describe our feelings,” Michael Muneer, a Christian activist and chairman of the civil organization “Hand In hand for Egypt”, told Aljazeera satellite channel.
“Christians pray and Muslims defend them. It is a touching scene.”
By one o’clock PM (CLT), Christians started their Sunday Mass in Cairo’s Tahrir Square as Muslim protesters formed a ring around them to protect them during the service.
Chanting “one hand,” they appeared holding the Holy Quran and the Cross as Christians and Muslims crossed their hands.
Since the eruption of the protests, no single attack was reported on any church in Egypt, though all police forces withdrew from their locations in front of churches.
Last Friday, more than a million Muslims gathered for Friday Prayer in Tahrir Square in a day dubbed as the “Friday of Departure.”
Photos taken during the prayers showed Christians forming a ring around their fellow Muslims to protect them during prayers.”
