Sadness still prevail every house in Egypt, Christian and Muslim .. thousands of years ago the Egyptians were one people and when Islam entered to Egypt , the Egyptians still in the same thread as one fabric .

For this reason Egyptians Muslims decided to go to the Christian churches to pray and celebrate with the feast and they will make a human wall against any attack that can affect any church .. as what Professor Hany Aziz, Advisor of Pope Shenouda said and who commented on the requests to attened the prayer liturgy by saying

"If we have established the feast prayer in Cairo Stadium , it will not be enough as the large numbers of Muslims who will come with millions . These muslims offer their lives in case of their Christian brothers faced any attack .

Thus all Egyptian Muslims with their groups, parties and even on the personal level are now preparing to go front the churches to deal with any possible terrorist operation. But before they have to take the permission from security to enter or approach, where the Egyptian police imposed a security strong cordon around all the Christian places .

In any case the Egyptians chose the seventh of January of each year as a festival of national unity, according to the egyptian parties who refered that this crime woke up every egyptian that they are one nation and never accept with any interference from abroad .. because Egypt is not Iraq or Palestine or any spot above the earth .. and the use of word "the minority " to the Christians , is not true and wrong . The Egyptian Christian has carried the same blood of the Egyptian Muslim .. both living in one house and eat the same food and suffer from the same problems .. and egyptian are 80 millions with its muslims and christians.

At the same time all egyptian groups , parties refused the strange Provocative tone of the trial by the foreign media and Christian personalities around World . And these Egyptians said that those who want peace for egyptian christians only , they must ask the same peace in Iraq, Afghanistan and Palestine .. Because The Egyptians can protect themselves and save their rights as well solve their problems without the need of any stranger.

On the other hand many public demonstrations of Muslims and Christians together hand in hand went out in the Egyptian cities demanding with the disclosure of the identity of the offender and the punishment and revenge fromhim. Also the Muslim communities asked from the Egyptian government to resolve outstanding issues for the Christians and end the reasons of the differences and tensions with the Christians.
