We’re seeing lots of things in Egypt these days, but one of them is the destruction of the last remaining Coptic communities.
The Copts are the original Egyptians (one could argue they’re currently enjoying the benefits of Arab immigration, but that would perhaps be unfair). They’re the last remnants of the world’s first civilization.
In Coptic churches today (if there are any left) you can still hear a language spoken which sounds a lot like the language the Ancient Egyptians used to speak thousands of years ago.
It’s fascinating and sad to think about all the events that this group of people has survived and to reflect on the ones it won’t.
