In a Pew Research poll taken after the allegedly pro-democracy riots in Tahrir Square, only a third of Egyptian adults said they think it’s important for Coptic Christians to practice their faith freely.
Meanwhile, a whopping 89% of them say laws under a post-Mubarak government “should follow the values and principles of Islam.” And nearly two-thirds want laws to enforce Shariah — the barbaric legal code practiced in Saudi Arabia and Afghanistan under the Taliban.
In a separate survey last spring, Pew found that a startling 84% of Egyptians favor the death penalty for people who leave the Muslim faith.
Clearly, Muslim hatred for Christians (as well as Jews) has not thawed with the “Arab Spring.”
