ISIS SAYS “CHRISTIANS ARE OUR FAVORITE PREY” – Churches Blasted on Palm Sunday 2

At the start of Holy Week, leading up to Easter, and weeks before Pope Francis is due to visit Egypt, the Arab world’s most populous country was hit twice by bombs.

Two blasts hit Coptic Christian churches in Egypt and ISIS took responsibility. The bombing killed 37 people and injured more than 100.

The first blast happened at St. George church in the Nile Delta town of Tanta. At least 26 people were killed and 71 others wounded.

Graphic video showed the inside of the church. A large group of people gathered around lifeless, bloody bodies covered with papers.

St. Mark’s Cathedral in the coastal city of Alexandria, was the scene of a second blast. At least 11 dead and 35 injured were reported.

The viscous attack came just after Pope Tawadros II, the leader of the Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria, had finished services. He was unharmed.

ISIS has claimed, “Christians are our favorite prey.”

Egypt has striven to battle a wave of Islamic militancy since 2013 when a military overthrow of an elected Islamist president occurred.

    It is a sad day for a Palm Sunday. Prayers are needed for these people in Egypt.

    We must understand the mentality of those who follow radical teachings where human life is not important and realize the danger to all in our world where these radicals are allowed to roam free and do their evils against the civilization. We must also realize, it is not revenge we should seek as that has never been the answer.

    These radicals must be stopped and many of them will die in the process, but lets not forget the evils of the Christian world not so long ago. The inquisitions were not so wonderful as they also murdered many people in their cause for control of the human mind for the human purse.

    This is a global issue and not a problem only for the united States. We are not the worlds policemen although we do have an obligation to full fill our obligations to society.

      Our obligation should be to Americans first. I have been to the Vatican. I saw that they want for not. Why don’t they contribute to the cost of saving Christians lives across the Middle East? Israel does more than they do. Thanks for the comment Michael.
