An Ecumenical Moment with Rorate Cæli
- Coptic Bishop: "We know how Muslims behave when they become the majority!"

The man speaking here is the Coptic-Orthodox (Oriental Orthodox) "General Bishop" (Generalbischof) for Germany, Anba Damian, a native of Cairo, in an interview recorded a couple of years ago. Since grievous attacks such as those perpetrated by ISIS usually bring with them in the media a kind of guilt-induced backlash (such as, "no, no, Islam is absolutely harmless, and indeed very beneficial to social harmony and very respectful of minorities when they are a majority"), we consider it useful to recall the voice that comes from experience. A 1,400-year-long experience.
