Egypt: Dozens Of Molotov Cocktail Bombs Found Near Ismailia Church


For peaceful purposes …

By Corey Bailey, ICC – “The first month of 2014 has seen numerous ‘attacks’ on churches and Christians in Egypt.  Witnesses and sources in Egypt reported to International Christian Concern (ICC), that despite the fact the following attacks were thwarted, they added to the fear Christians in Egypt face on a regular basis.

On Friday, January 3, supporters of Muslim Brotherhood attacked an Evangelical Church in the Gesr El Suez area of Cairo. The mob gathered in front of the church on Ahmed Esmat Street and began to ‘pelt stones on the church and change slogans against Christians,’ Mina Beshay, a Christian in this area, told ICC. Reports indicate that there was no security for the church building and that the attackers operated with impunity.

On Sunday, January 5, security forces in Suez disrupted a terrorist cell named, ‘Supporters of Jerusalem.’ They arrested the members when they discovered a plot to attack a nearby church on the nigh of their Christmas celebrations. Christmas among many Christians in Egypt is celebrated on January 7.

On Monday evening, January 6, a bomb was found in the bathroom of the Three Saints Church in Beni Suef city. Police diffused the bomb, initially discovered by a church member. A few days later, on January 10, security forces ‘arrested a bearded person in possession of four hand grenades in a handbag next to the Church of two Saints,’ Wissa Fawzy, a Christian in Alexandria told ICC.

On Friday, January 24, The civil defense forces and civil protection forces in Assiut Governorate found explosives inside a car parked behind the church of AL Malak.  The church, which is located in AL Numies street,in Assiut city, was targeted, ‘to be exploded,’ sources told ICC.

On Saturday, January 25, Security forces in Ismailia Security directorate found 26 Molotov Cocktails inside a bag next to the church of St. Bishoy in the area of Sheikh Zayed in Ismailia city. Witnesses say that the person in possession of the bag of explosives was sitting in a car next to the church and ‘he fled when he saw the policemen.’

Christians, a religious minority in Egypt, have lived in constant fear of attack. Christians have been kidnapped and their Churches bombed or raided on a regular basis.” Source – International Christian Concern.

Flashback: Islamic Party Member In Egypt Threatens Christians: You ‘Will Regret’ Supporting Overthrow Of Morsi – “Assem Abdel Magid, a member of the Islamic party Gamaah Islamiya, has renewed his threats against the Coptic Church and its leaders, who he accused again of supporting what he called a ‘coup.’ Magid insisted that the church and its leaders will regret it, and that the church made a strategic mistake when it stood against the first elected president. Magid was referring to the church’s support of the revolution of June 30, which deposed Mohamed Morsi… Prior to the Morsi ouster, Magid claimed in an interview on el-Nas Islamic channel on June 9, that, ‘Coptic communists, extremists, and atheists are calling for demonstrations on June 30′ while warning that Copts to not participate in these demonstrations by saying, ‘Do not offer your children as sacrifices.’” Read more.
