The U.S. Embassy in Cairo, responding to recent terror attacks that targeted church-goers on Palm Sunday, sent out a warning for citizens that went like this: Be careful where you worship.
That’s the response to the terror — to warn citizens?
One would think something might be done about said terrorists — that the terrorists might be forced to adjust their terror ways, rather than the citizens be forced to accommodate them.
Instead, what we get from the U.S. Embassy is tantamount to a warning to Americans to stay home from church — at one of Christianity’s busiest church-going season, Easter.

“The US Embassy in Cairo issued a security alert to US citizens on Tuesday, indicating that they should avoid identifiable places of worship for the next two weeks following recent terrorist attacks on Palm Sunday that targeted churches in Alexandria and Tanta and left at least 45 people dead and over 100 injured.
“These attacks signified one of the deadliest days of violence against Christians in Egypt in years, which led President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to promptly declare a three-month state of emergency, saying the measure was necessary to efficiently wage war on terror.
“On Tuesday, a statement from the US Embassy in Cairo warned its citizens to “maintain a heightened state of alert, avoiding crowds and public gatherings at all times while in Egypt.”
They do know that it’s rounding the corner on Easter, right? One of Christianity’s most sacred religious remembrances?
