It’s because Islam doesn’t allow for a non-Muslim to rule over the Muslim, it’s the supremacy thing. KGS
NOTE: You can ask yourself how many of these Muslims protesting against the Coptic governor were in the streets earlier this year, being cast by the Western media as “demonstrators for democracy”?
ALSO: Anyone think that the various “human rights” group out there are going to mount a big high profile campaign against this open Muslim bigotry? Crickets chirping.

CAIRO, April 21 (Reuters) – Protesters in a southern Egyptian city insisted on Thursday their new Christian governor resign, stepping up a week-long challenge to his appointment by the country’s military rulers.
The army generals ruling Egypt since President Hosni Mubarak’s ouster appointed Emad Mikhail, a Copt and a senior former officer in Egypt’s vilified police force, as governor of Qena province earlier this month.
But he has so far not taken up his post because thousands of demonstrators have contested the decision, resorting to the same people-power that ended Mubarak’s 30-year rule in February.
Protesters have blocked highways and railway tracks leading to Qena, a province with a large Coptic Christian population and whose previous governor was also a Christian.
They have also surrounded the governor’s office, vowing to prevent Mikhail from ever entering.
“Mikhail, Mikhail, you’re never coming here,” protesters chanted.
