Once again college students are engaged in battles against the military in Egypt. A few weeks ago secular college students battled police and military forces as they fought to end the rule of President Morsi. Yesterday, religious students at the prestigious Al Azhar university were fighting in support of former President Morsi. They also were furious at murder of innocent young students who openly protested the ouster. First, students attacked administrators, then moved outside to attack the military and, most probably will proceed to attack Coptic Christians and secular groups.
Students had every right to fight for the right of peaceful assembly and to restore President Morsi. Hopefully, some day, they will also support the right of Coptic Christians to pray in peace. Yesterday, two adults and two Christian children were murdered. Will students march for their fellow Christians?
