Statement from the Protestant Community in Egypt

General February 17, 2011
The Executive Committee of the Council of Protestant Churches of Egypt held a specialized meeting on Wednesday, February 9, 2011 , in the presence of a number of leaders of the Protestant Community representing its different denominations, where extensive discussions took place on the events and the rapid changes that our country is experiencing. Based on the beliefs of the church in that it is an integral part of the community, and the church’s feeling  of its national duty in service of its community for a better life for all of its citizens, we assert the following:

The Protestant Community expresses its appreciation of the initiatives taken by the youth of our churches in different areas, which manifested itself in positive engagement to eliminate the effects of vandalism and destruction that occurred in some locations, and appeals to its sons for more of this participation.
