Sheik of Al-Azhar, Ahmad Al-Tayyeb, criticized Pope Benedict XVI for calling for the world's support for the Egyptian Copts and Christians.

He described the demand as an improper interference in the Egypt's internal affairs.

In an address on the occasion of the new Christian year in Vatican, Pope Benedict XVI condemned the bomb attack outside a church in Egypt and called on the world leaders to defend the Christians. [...]
