This is not only touching but also truly inspiring.
Our differences do not mean that we cannot live together.

This is not the first time this is happening in Egypt, on January 7th several Muslims including two of the president's sons, stood to protect a Coptic Church during the Christmas Mass.

It seems there is a lot to learn from Egypt. PS it won't be the first time.
