Al-Qaeda leader opposes fighting Christians in Egypt

Al-Qaeda's leader said that Egypt's majority Muslims should not fight their Christian compatriots, even though the head of their church supported a military coup that deposed the Islamist president.

In an audio message posted on militant websites today , Ayman al-Zawahri said it was not in the interest of Muslims to be engaged with the Christians because "we have to be busy with confronting the Americanized coup of [Gen. Abdel-Fattah] al-Sissi and establish an Islamic government instead."

Al-Sissi is Egypt's defense minister who removed President Mohammad Morsi from power in a popularly backed July 3 coup.
