As Twitchy reported earlier today,  an Islamist mob attacked Egyptian Coptic Christians at Abbasiya Cathedral, one of Cairo’s largest Coptic cathedrals.

According to @EgyPresidency, Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi claims he will ensure the protection of “citizens” and the Abbasiya Cathedral.

His use of the term “Cathedral clashes” suggests culpability on both sides, even though Islamists reportedly initiated the attack.

And his pledge to bring “culprits” to justice leaves open the possibility of blaming the attacks on Coptic Christians.

A lot of Twitter users are skeptical — and rightly so.
