Is there no low ISIS won’t stoop to?
Their reign of terror across the world has reached new heights this month. It hasn’t even been a week since the attack in Manchester, England that killed 22 people.
Since then there have been two other major attacks targeting Christians.
In the Philippines a Catholic priest and his congregation were taken hostage by ISIS militants.
Now in Egypt, news is breaking that a bus filled with Coptic Christians traveling to pray at a monastery were targeted.
Tragedies like this are becoming far too frequent. Like it or not, we are in a holy war with ISIS, and Christians around the world are under attack.
From Fox News:
A team of gunmen opened fire on a bus carrying Coptic Christians south of Cairo Friday, killing at least 28, including children, and wounding 22 other people, Egyptian officials confirmed.
As many as 10 attackers in 3 SUVs stormed the bus dressed in military uniforms and wearing masks, according to witnesses. The victims were on their way to visit a monastery to pray. Only three children survived the attack, the Copts United news portal reported.
This isn’t the first time that Christians in Egypt have been targeted.
Just last month on Palm Sunday, terrorists attacked a church in Egypt with twin suicide bombings. In December, another church in Cairo was bombed.
As horrendous as these attacks are, they aren’t a surprise to those that know what these Islamic militants want. They believe Allah has ordered them to kill every infidel that does not bow to their radical beliefs. This includes Christians, who are currently a primary target for these extremists.
In February, members of an ISIS affiliate released a video saying that Egyptian Christians were their “favorite prey.”
Christians in Egypt face an uncertain future. They are a minority in the country, with only 10% of the population being followers in the Muslim majority nation.
Many are afraid, but continue to take solace in their religion. And finally Americans have a President in Donald Trump who vows to obliterate ISIS from the face of this earth.
And he means it.
