It's true that al-Qaradawi had conciliatory words for the Christians. Nevertheless, the article reported:
A top source in Egypt's Coptic Christian community told WND he and other Coptic Christians held a meeting last Monday with officials at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo to raise objections about the inclusion of the Brotherhood in the constitutional committee.So what kind of a government is going to rise from the ashes of Egypt's revolution? Will it remind us more of Philadelphia's Constitutional Convention in 1787, Paris in 1793 during the Reign of Terror, or Moscow in 1917 when the Bolsheviks came to power? Check out my post on Pat Buchanan's description of the aftermath of Turkey's "democratic" changes. Revolutions don't necessarily have happy endings. Think of the poor Cuban people in 1959 after Castro came to power. Please pray for the Christian Copts in Egypt. They must be very nervous at present.
The source said the Christian community pointed out that the official Muslim Brotherhood charter, amended in 2007, calls for the imposition of Islamic law in Egypt.
Among other things, the charter, obtained by WND, states that non-Muslims cannot hold government positions and must pay to the state the jizya, or special Islamic protection tax.
