Now, more than ever, it’s important to stick with our fellow Christians. The Left likes to talk about the hatred that Muslims endure, yet they are silent of the mass execution of Christians.
This explosion killed 25 people, with 6 of them being children. It injured many more. And a few weeks ago terrorists decimated a Christian church in Jerusalem. How can the Left remain so silent?
A terrorist detonated a 12kg bomb inside a church targeting Cairo‘s main Coptic Christian community killing 25 people, including six children, and wounded a further 49.
The bombing, which is the latest attack on Cairo’s Coptic community, saw a terrorist enter the church and blast the female’s side of the building.
Riots have since erupted outside the building as protesters have arrived, chanting for the resignation of Egypt’s interior minister and fighting with police.
Footage from the scene shows dead and wounded victims being carried from a church beside the historic building in the centre of the Egyptian capital.
Egypt’s official news agency confirmed the bomb attack was the second to take place in the capital over the weekend.
St. Mark’s Cathedral is the seat of Egypt’s Orthodox Christian church and is home to the office of its spiritual leader, Pope Tawadros II.
The attack was one of the deadliest on the religious minority in living memory.
However, members of Egypt’s Coptic Christian community have been targeted by members of the Muslim Brotherhood who supported the ousted former leader Mohamed Morsi
Morsi’s supporters accused the Christians of backing President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi who led the overthrow in July 2013.
Commenting on the attack, El-Sisi announced a three-day state of mourning. He said: ‘The pain felt by Egyptians now will not go to waste, but will result in an uncompromising decisiveness to hunt down and bring to trial whoever helped through inciting, facilitating, participating or executing this heinous crime.’
There was no immediate claim of responsibility, however, some supporters of the ISIS celebrated the attack on social media.
One message said: ‘God is great, God is great, God is great.’
Another wrote: ‘ God bless the person who did this blessed act.’
A device containing about 12 kg of the explosive TNT had denoted on the women’s side of the cathedral, the security sources said.
