Forced migration of Copts has also been reported in the past, following sectarian clashes over the past two years. The most recent example of the forced migration of Copts was reported to have taken place in January of this year in the town of Ameriya in Alexandria.
- There have been cases of displacement of Coptic Christians (everytime violent clash happens, afterwards, local Christians become expelled.)
If that’s the pattern - why that’s the pattern and how that can be prevented (or can’t be or shouldn’t be prevented) - I wonder.
Investigation - but you are dealing with local residents (groups of people) and their ‘atmosphere’ etc. (Punishing individuals out of them could even stir up the situation.)
- Reconciliation - is also mentioned: (though most cases, I find these things don’t have any persistence)
On Thursday, the Shura Council – the upper, consultative house of Egypt’s parliament – set up an eight-member committee tasked with reconciling Dahshur’s Muslim and Christian communities in a bid to pre-empt further violence.
"This isn’t a fact-finding committee, it’s a reconciliation committee," Shura Council head Ahmed Fahmi was quoted as saying by Al-Ahram’s Arabic-language news website. "Our aim is to achieve reconciliation between the two sides rather than determining who the culprits were."
Associated Press’s journalist is promising a detailed report on this case (Dahshur) And there could be other detailed accounts. To know whether this is now something can be dealt with, can be placed under control somehow - or otherwise.
