Christians Warn Against al-Azhar Influence in Egypt’s Curriculum

By Claire Evans

01/25/2018 WashingtonD.C. (International Christian Concern) - During the last year, Egypt’s Christians experienced persecution in ever increasing waves.

Each incident of persecution has elements of uniqueness, but they usually stem from the same basic belief that Christians are not welcome in Egypt.
