One more Muslim voice blaming Jews for the attack on Coptic worshipers in Alexandria.

Islamic thinker Dr. Muhammad Salim al-'Awa accused Zionist intelligence of involvement in the bombing that targeted Saints' Church in Alexandria.

He said: "There is an agreement between the national community, intellectual Muslims and Christians, and security officials to point the blame at foreign powers." ...

He stressed that the prohibition against killing in places of worship is unequivocal, and added that "I believe very strongly that the ones behind this criminal act are Zionist intelligence agents, whether deceived or deceiving Egyptians, or non-Egyptians. This is what we hope will be discovered by Egyptian security authorities."
