El-Sisi cut short his visit to Kuwait and went straight from the airport to Saint Mark’s Coptic Orthodox Cathedral to make it on time, in a display of good-will towards Egypt’s largest non-muslim community. He arrived just as the service had begun and apologized several times for interrupting Mass. He was greeted by a jubilant congregation and his brief address received a standing ovation and was broadcast live on Egyptian State TV…
