Love Amid Fear and Conflict: Muslim-Christian Relations in Egypt in 2012

YCSD is interested to provide different points of view on the realities in Egypt amongst Christians and Muslims. That is why, we recommend you to read this material. AWR Chief Editor Cornelis Hulsman was recently invited to deliver the annual Bjoern Bue's Human Rights Memorial Lecture at Norway's MHS - School of Mission and Theology.
STAVANGER, Norway (AWR) -- Thank you Dr. Bård Maeland, Dr. Kristin Fjelde Tjelle, and Dr. Jan Opsal for your kind invitation to give the prestigious Bjoern Bue’s Human Rights Memorial Lecture for 2012 on the God-given, equal and inherent dignity, worth and rights of all human beings and since I am speaking about Egypt in particular, Muslims and Christians. Thank you all for attending. 
I was impressed by the torch marches last week in different locations in Norway that showed solidarity with Christians in the Middle East. Impressive too was that the new Norwegian Foreign Minister, Espen Barth Eide attended one of these marches. It shows that this subject is important to Norwegians. There is good cause for concern as Christians are hastily leaving the Middle East and if this continues at the current rate, there won’t be many Christians left in the next generation.
