The attack comes just days after Muslims bombed a church packed with Palm Sunday worshippers and days before a Papal visit to “promote better relations between Catholics and Muslims.”
I am sure the Pope will school us, yet again, on how Islam is peace and that there is no violence in the Quran. And that is the islamophobes who are the problem.

The attack was targetting security forces and comes days before Pope Francis is due to be visiting the country.
The shooting was carried out by a gunman and happened at a security checkpoint a few hundred metres from the church entrance, according to a security source.
The injured have been taken to Sharm el-Sheikh international hospital for treatment.
No group has claimed responsibility.

The monastery is a UNESCO World Heritage Site
Pope Francis is due to travel to Egypt later this month to promote better relations between Catholics and Muslims.The Pope has accepted an invitation to visit Cairo from President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, Roman Catholic bishops, the leader of the Coptic Orthodox church of Alexandria and the grand imam of Al Azhar mosque.
