20+ Copts Killed by Gunman.
« on: May 26, 2017, 08:29:21 PM »
This is so saddening. I can't tell you how tired I am of reading this type of thing, going through the feelings all over again. Hasn't been a month from the last one and these poor people are targeted again.

As someone with a Copt for a friend, it hits home but as an Assyrian, a Christian minority in the ME, like the Copts - I have even more an understanding.

What is with Islamic violence in Egypt nowadays? Is ISIS moving to that country now?

Very tragic. Indeed. I don't need words for this Quranic atrocity.
