(p.201) 10 The Copts’ Islamist Experience
Copts at the Crossroads

Mariz Tadros

American University in Cairo Press

This chapter inverts the usual question of the Islamist position on the Coptic question, to ask what are Coptic perceptions of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Islamist project. It examines the positions of key lay and Church figures from within the Coptic community, since the founding of the Muslim Brotherhood. It then looks at the establishment of Islamist parties post-January 25, as well as at the Copts who joined these parties—their motivations, their prospects for assimilation, and the parties’ agendas.

Keywords:   Muslim Brotherhood, Islamist parties, Assimilation
