WOODBURY - Egyptian-Americans living on Long Island are closely following the developments in their home country that has been rocked by violent anti-government protests. Father Guirguis Tadros left Egypt to run St. Mark Coptic Orthodox Center in Woodbury back in the 1990s, but his brother and sister are still living in Cairo, which has descended into chaos over the past several days. Tadros says the protests against Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak have been years in the making. He says the government is corrupt and people are suffering. While Tadros believes the protests could finally bring about change in Egypt, as a Christian from a predominately Muslim country he hopes power doesn't end up in the hands of such extremist political groups as the Muslim Brotherhood. St. Mark Coptic Orthodox Church will hold special prayer sessions Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday in light of the situation in Egypt.
