Copts and the Necessity to Define the Identity

By Munir Bshay
The following is the Copts' response to the infamous letter signed by Bishop Serapion, Bishop of Los Angeles Coptic Orthodox Church, which was also signed by our Archbishop Clemis Eugene Kaplan, Archbishop of the Western United States Archdiocese, in which both are claiming themselves and their respectful communities as are Arab Orthodox Christians.  The letter can be found at: http://www.bethsuryoyo.com/HallofShame/EKArabized.jpg

The article written by Mr. Munir Bshay was published in the Coptic newspaper, Orthodox News, Vol. 2 - Issue 13 - Page 6, October/November 2001.
