I'm not characterizing this as a good thing necessarily but it might serve to raise awareness of human rights issues in Egypt. Drudge refers to this Herald-Sun report
that about 1000 Coptic Christians sitting in at a church in Egypt threw stones at police, injuring about 20 officers. Supposedly a priest's wife was abducted by her Muslim employer and forced to convert to Islam. We should learn more details in coming days of what's really happening.
Meanwhile, Egypt is a place where such actions as female circumcision are common, so we should bear that in mind when following this story.
