"Muslims turned up in droves for the Coptic Christmas mass Thursday night, offering their bodies, and lives, as “shields” to Egypt’s threatened Christian community."

I am deeply gratified to read this.

Despite popular belief, Egypt is one of the more sane Middle Eastern countries, as is Jordan. They work hard to curb terrorism, not that they always succeed. So yes, Middle Eastern countries are perfectly capable of governing themselves successfully, they just choose not to.
