Copts Egypt Muslim persecution of Christians



Open season on these people, truly disturbing to see major mainline Christian denominations staying mum about these atrocities.

NOTE: This is of course shades of prior atrocities against a minority, I would hope that the Coptic community would reflect on this and create an interest in discussing a joint solidarity with Jews and the state of Israel. Condemning antisemitism within their ranks is a great place to start.

Egypt gunmen open fire on Coptic Christian wedding in Cairo

Gunmen fired shots as people left the church

Three people, including a girl aged eight, died when gunmen on motorcycles opened fire on a wedding party outside a Coptic Christian church in Cairo.

At least nine others were wounded in the attack in Giza, officials said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

Egypt’s Coptic Christian community has been targeted by some Islamists who accuse the Church of backing the army’s overthrow of President Mohammed Morsi in July.

The unidentified attackers fired indiscriminately as people left the church.
