The biggest story of this new century that no one talks about or dares speak of is the persecution, oppression and slaughter of religious minorities under Islamic rule. No, the big story, the big fiction, according to our quisling elites, is “islamophobia.” Embrace the hate under penalty of death, respect it!

Churches In Egypt Halt All Activities For Remainder Of July Amid Terror Threat

Joshua Gill, Daily Caller, July 14, 2017:

Egyptian churches announced Thursday they will suspend all church activities for the remainder of July per warnings of looming terrorist attacks.

The Evangelical, Coptic Orthodox, and Catholic churches agreed to halt services, conferences, and any church trips to protect their congregations after Egyptian security forces warned them of impending Islamic terrorist attacks, according to a Friday report from Egyptian Streets.

“The decision was taken by the three churches after they had consulted security sources,” a church leader told Al-Masry Al-Youm. “It’s important to protect Christians and their gatherings.”

Churches in Alexandria, however, opted instead to continue their services with stricter security, including police checks, private church security checks, and metal detectors, according to Al-Masry Al-Youm.

The churches’ response to this latest threat comes in the wake of a series of ISIS attacks that have targeted Christians in the region. ISIS threatened to “cleanse” Cairo of Christians in February propaganda video. ISIS militants have tried to make good on their threat since then, killing at least 29 Coptic Christians in a May attack and injuring 25, after an April attack that left 45 dead.
