Default Islamic State Threatens More Attacks on Egypt's Christians, Obama DHS Adviser Says

ISIS threatens MORE Egyptian Coptic Christian attacks...

...and because these Egyptian Coptic Christians were vocal about not wanting the Muslim Brotherhood as the leaders of Egypt after Mubarek left, a member of Obama's DHS Council says...

They DESERVE the attacks...

Islamic State Threatens More Attacks on Egypt's Christians, Obama DHS Adviser Says They Have It Coming

Quote:
In December, the Islamic State claimed a suicide bombing in a church inside Cairo's Coptic cathedral compound that killed 29 (all but one were women and girls). On Palm Sunday, two separate Islamic State suicide bombings killed nearly 50 worshippers.

Over the weekend, the group threatened more attacks on Christians

That renewed threat prompted interesting commentary from former Obama Homeland Security Advisory Council member Mohamed Elibiary. He claims that the Coptic Christians in Egypt -- the largest Christian population in the Middle East -- have it coming:


Quote:
What has Elibiary upset? Many in the Coptic Christian community backed the removal of the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohamed Morsi in 2013. In his tweet, he references "MB Egyptians" -- Muslim Brotherhood Egyptians.

He is drawing an analogy between being anti-Muslim Brotherhood, and mass murder.

Coptic Christians Slaughtered in Egypt As Ramadan Begins
May 26, 2017 | - Islamic terrorists opened fire on a convoy of Coptic Christians in Egypt on Friday, killing at least 26 of them, including children, and injuring two dozen others, news reports said.
Quote:
The attack comes at the beginning of Ramadan, Islam's holiest month. "Pray for the families of the more than 26 Coptic Chrisians killed by gunmen in Egypt today. Many wounded," Evangelist Franklin Graham, the president of Samaritan's Purse, tweeted as details of the attack emerged.

According to the BBC: Masked gunmen on Friday attacked two buses and a truck carrying Coptic Christians in Egypt, killing more than 20 people and wounding dozens, according to officials. The attackers arrived in three pick-up trucks and opened fire on the vehicles carrying visitors to the Saint Samuel Monastery in the Minya province, about 220km south of the capital, Cairo, before fleeing the scene. The interior ministry said at least 26 people were killed and 25 wounded in the attack. There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

Pictures of a bus at the scene aired by state TV showed its windows shot out. This is the latest in a series of attacks on Egypt's Coptic Christians, who comprise an estimated 10 percent of Egypt's population. In December 2016, 25 were killed and 49 injured in an attack on a cathedral in Cairo. Last month, on Palm Sunday, a total of 44 were killed and more than 100 injured in attacks on two churches, one in Alexandria and one in Tanta. In February, the ISIS affiliate in the Sinai released an online video threatening to cleanse Egypt of Christians, whom it described as “infidels” and accused of insulting Islam.
