January 19, 2010: demonstration in front of the UN. The crowd, mostly Coptic Christians, protested the killing of their fellow Copts in the Egyptian town of Nagaa Hammadi on January 6, just as the community prepared for the celebration of their Christmas. There are more pictures here.

But the Copts won’t get much attention. After all, they are Christians. What “progressives” worry about the survival of a Christian church or, for that matter, of pious Christian lives? — Marty Peretz
