Egypt: dangerous holiday for Copts

In Egypt, under pressure from the Islamists, Christians are being asked to cancel their vacation plans.

Six weeks after the disastrous tragedy of maghagha, which had made 29 deaths, rest is still not appropriate for the Copts. The commitment of Abu Abdullah al-Masri to liberate Cairo by explosives, seems to be confirmed in pain. Dr Andrea Zaki, President of Protestant Churches in Egypt, announces to World Watch Monitor :

“I have asked all of our churches and training centers to cancel their trips and events for the next three weeks. They could be the target of radicals. "

Halim Balls confirms to WWM that the Coptic Orthodox Church received the same advice.

The Copts are forced into terror, because since the engagement of Abu Abdallah al-Masri, many Copts were violently murdered: Doctor Albert Fekry is found shot dead in his clinic, biologist Girgis Bushra is found dead at home, an artist, Michael Nabil Bebawy, died beheaded on his return from mass, an entrepreneur has also been found, beaten down.

Un prêtre, who does not wish to be named, speaks of "the most aggressive campaign the Copts have known in modern Egypt." "

Saeed Awad, pastor of a church in the Suez Canal region said:

“We are on the front line. We are the first city that Daesh would come to. Being careful is important, and safety measures are necessary, but it is essential that we do not spread fear among people. "
