For years, Egyptian Copt Michel Fahmy could hear a Muslim preacher invoking God's wrath on Christians in sermons blared over loudspeakers from a mosque near his home. The radical message, he says, is a reason for militant attacks on his minority like the twin bombings of churches Sunday that killed 45 people. Some Copts point to the school system, where Muslims and Christians attend different religious classes.Coptic Christians have also long complained of radical discourse in some mosques and on Islamic satellite channels.
