The New York Daily News is reporting that on Friday, the holy day for Islam, Christian protesters in Tahir Square joined hands to form a protective cordon around their Muslim countrymen so they could pray in safety. Sunday, the Muslims returned the favor. They surrounded Christians celebrating Mass in Cairo's central plaza, ground zero for the secular pro-democracy protests reverberating throughout the region. "In the name of Jesus and Muhammed, we unify our ranks," the Rev. Ihab al-Kharat told the crowd in his sermon, reports Helen Kennedy of the New York Daily News. "We will keep protesting until the fall of the tyranny," he said.
