“Our Lives Have Turned into Hell”

Muslim Persecution of Christians, May 2017

One month after Islamic militants bombed two Egyptian churches during Palm Sunday and killed nearly 50 people in April 2017, several SUVs, on May 26, stopped two buses transporting dozens of Christians to the ancient Coptic Monastery of St. Samuel the Confessor in the desert south of Cairo. According to initial reports, approximately ten Islamic militants, heavily armed and dressed in military fatigues, “demanded that the passengers recite the Muslim profession of faith” — which is tantamount to converting to Islam. When they refused, the jihadis opened fire on them, killing 29 Christians, at least ten of whom were young children. Two girls were aged 2 and 4. Also killed was Mohsen Morkous, an American citizen described as “a simple man” whom “everyone loved,” his two sons, and his two grandsons.

    How very flattering to Muhammad that nearly 1400 years later, his followers are still raiding and murdering, just like their “perfect man’s” first raid on a caravan.

    With enough time … maybe even next treason, we’ll enjoy similar enrichment too.

    Why isn’t President Sisi doing some thing to stop the killing of Egyptian Christians? The U.S. should cut off aid to Egypt until they comply.

      El Sisi is doing his best. When he took power, he closed down quite a few mosques while others are under surveillance. He imprisoned as many Muslim Brotherhood followers as he could find. He’s also working with Israeli intelligence and military.

      Problem: How to identify these individuals who live in camouflage among us and predict their future attacks?

        Just like in Canada now except it’s not nearly as violent as Egypt yet. Give it a few years for Trudope’s supporters to get into high gear.
