(Christian Today) The General Director of the Bible Society of Egypt is positive about the demonstrations that have led to the ousting of President Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Ramez Atallah thanked people for their concern but insisted that the vast majority of the protests had been peaceful and “festive” in mood.

He said he did not feel unsafe in spite of the large crowds and lack of police or army presence.

“On the contrary, we all felt very proud to be Egyptians and to be among so many wonderful compatriots from Christians to conservative, Muslim, veiled women,” he said.
