US English teacher murdered in latest Egyptian demonstrations

The newest riots between pro and anti-Morsi demonstrators in Egypt has cost the life of an American working there:
The American college student killed Friday amid bloody protests in Egypt was in the country teaching young children English and bettering his Arabic speaking skills, family members said.

Andrew Driscoll Pochter, 21, a student at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio and a native of Chevy Chase, Md., was killed in the city of Alexandria during clashes between anti-government demonstrators and supporters of President Mohamed Morsi, the college said in a statement.

Pochter was apparently watching the violent protests as a bystander when he was fatally stabbed by an unidentified protester, his family said in a statement uploaded to Facebook.
I just don't understand why anybody would want to work in a country that's descending into chaos and whose so-called authorities and educators do nothing to teach civility to its citizens. The worst part is whether the murderer knew the following about him:
Pochter was one of the student leaders of Hillel, a campus Jewish group with chapters across the country, according to a November 2012 article in The Kenyon Collegian, the student newspaper.
Is it possible he was murdered because he was Jewish?
