Ramadan in Egypt: Muslims murder 26 Christians in bus on way to monastery, a post from JihadWatch.org with comments

Ramadan begins today. It is the month of jihad, the month when Muslims strive to please Allah more fervently. And so because murdering Infidels who are considered to be at war with Allah is a pious act, there is generally more bloodshed during Ramadan than during the rest of the year.

“26 killed, 26 injured as gunmen fire on Coptic Christian convoy in Egypt,” Straits Times, May 26, 2017:

CAIRO (Bloomb erg [sic], Reuters, AFP) – Gunmen in military fatigues opened fire on a bus carrying members of Egypt’s Coptic Christian minority killing at least 26 people, including children, the latest in a string of militant attacks targeting the community.

Another 26 were wounded in the assault in Minya province, some 200km south of Cairo, said Ministry of Health spokesman Khaled Mogahed.

The Copts were on their way to the Saint Samuel monastery, according to Minya’s governor Issam al-Bedewi. Bishop Anba Ermia, president of the Coptic Orthodox Cultural Centre, said on Twitter that the attack may have killed as many as 35 people in a convoy of vehicles.

Pictures of the bus aired by state television showed its windows shot out.

“They used automatic weapons,” Bedawi told state television.

Bedawi said police were fanning out along the road where the attack took place and had set up checkpoints.

The attack came days after Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi joined US President Donald Trump and top Arab leaders to launch a new centre in the Saudi capital Riyadh to combat the Islamist ideologies behind terrorism.

“They’re hitting at countries’ weakest points,” said Sami Nader, head of the Beirut-based Levant Institute for Strategic Affairs. “It’s not a classic war. Tanks, fighter jets are not fit to counter this kind of threat.”

The morning assault began when about 10 men wearing military-style clothing opened fire, according to Major Mohamed Abdel-Moneim, who’s with the Minya security directorate.

It occurred in upper Egypt, an area where militants had previously been active in the 1990s and 2000s, especially in fighting between the government and the Sunni group Gamaa Al-Islamiya. Tensions between Muslims and Christians frequently flare.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for Friday’s attack.

In January, bombings killed dozens at two churches in the deadliest attacks in recent memory on the country’s Coptic Christian minority.

The first bombing on Palm Sunday at the Mar Girgis church in Tanta city, north of Cairo, killed 27 people, the health ministry said. The second struck outside Saint Mark’s church in Alexandria, killing 17 people after a suicide bomber was prevented from entering the building.

Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has been waging a deadly insurgency in the Sinai Peninsula and has claimed scores of attacks on security forces there….

          28 Copts are now dead. The Religion of satan has begun the holy month of Killathon in cracking form. They don’t fast from doing evil, so their (pseudo-)fast is a worthless abomination. As one would except from a cult inspired by the devil,

              Are there any Copts left in Egypt?

              Going by this pace of killings- around 50 Copts slaughtered every five months or so and their low birth rate compared to that of Muslims, they will become extinct in Egypt, in around 10 years time!

                  Copts birth rate is the same as Muslims this is false propaganda they have lower birth rate to find excuses to undermine them previously in the census political. what is your identity t to think like that? they long time ago alomost extinct but caught up again when Mohammad Ali abolished jizya

          26 Christians is a lot of meat, 52 if you count the injured. Seems like devout Moslems are more religious about the jihad part than the fasting part.

              So, if the human race still exist on earth 100 years from now, it will look at data and say

      Let me hear these so called “moderate” Muslims shed any tears for the murdered Christians! It will not happens here or in UK or in Egypt! And it is the beginning of their “holy” month of Ramadan – the murderous month which Muslims celebrate by killing more infidels in hopes of getting in good grace of their murderous allah!!

      Wait for more murder and mayhem of infidels throughout the world in the next 30 days!

      Muhamed was possesed by the devil. The Coran was inspired by Satan. Islam was created by Satan to mislead a big chunk of humanity.

      Islam must be denounced permanently everywhere to help others not to fall into that error and help Mohammedans to see the light

      Ya see? Just as I said in my previous post, Islamland goes after any uppity kufr. Their crime? Being Christian in Dar-al-Islam during Ramadan. And this is in Egypt, where the government gives a rat’s butt about their Christians. A tiny rat’s butt, but more than the pope does.

      May 26, 2017 at 10:31 am

      Such a vicious, horrible, tragedy in the name of despotic, lame, religion. Ramadan is now the season of terror.

      Christianity has been historically hijacked for atrocities a few times by political interests then it returns to its peaceful roots. Islam was hijacked by its own founder for his political gain, rewritten, and then left with no peaceful roots. The majority of “peaceful” Muslims are living outside the Quranic roots of Islam and the terrorists, radicals, etc, are living the root ideology. The West’s leaders, not bothering to study Islamic doctrine from its fundamental sources, assume, incorrectly, that peace lies at the Quranic roots of Islam when, in fact, they are then inadvertently fostering the lie that peace is in the roots of Islam.

      Islamic radicals are revivalists. Revivalism in Islam will always lead to war. Islam needs reformation, not revival.

        • James says

          May 26, 2017 at 12:23 pm

          Islam has been reformed – by ibn Wahhab. That is why it is so brutal: it is returning to its roots. Islam needs to be destroyed utterly. You cannot reform a death cult in any other way.

      I am visiting Prague, Czech Republic. What a wonderful place. No moslems on the streets. The president and people are so “islamophobic”, it makes me feel safe and comfortable. Only 10% of population consider themselves catholics, the rest mostly atheists and agnostics, so the church has little influence on public opinion. Not that moslems didn’t try their usual victim shtick and jihad through courts. It didn’t work. Czech republic will leave EU, if pushed to accept moslems. It is a country of only 10 ml people, but very rich in culture and history: Kafka, Gashek, Dvorak and others, who made contributions to the world literature, music and science. Highly recommend to visit this country.

          When I was living in Egypt, numerous people showed an interest in killing me. One stabbing attempt failed, another said he would like to get drunk and kill me, and others tried to lure me away to lonely places where it would be easier to kill me with no one seeing who did it. All because I was a blue eyed American. Then, I got in a plane and flew to Prague. For 3 straight days, strangers approached me wanting sex that very day because they viewed sex with an exotic American as a delightful confection. I left Prague to go walking in the mountains in Austria before the streak was ever broken. I agree with you Prague is much better than muslim countries to visit.

      This tragic and deadly Islamic terrorism against those Christians of Egypt reveals that there are many Muslims who strongly dislike Christians. Some Muslims even hate Christians so much that they even become violence against them and burn their Bibles. One reason for this is that in the mosques and madrasas the Muslim clerics, as the imams who speak many awful and unproven terrible things against Christians and Christian doctrine. So much so the many Muslims get all worked up against Christians and Christian teachings and some those Muslims commit violent actions against Christians. Such false religious teachers, as those Muslim clerics, who speak to people unfounded and invalid evil things about Christians and Christian doctrines have been described in the Bible. For the Bible informs the reader in Second Peter 2:12. “They speak evil of things they do not understand, and will utterly perish in their own corruption.” [N.K.J.V.]
      It also should be make clear that in this specific above Bible verse, as well as in John 3:16. The word “Perish” does not mean loss of being but loss of well-being. As in going to ruin by ending up in languishing in torment in a terrible place of suffering that the Bible calls hell. Luke 16:19-31.

              I’m sure there are some of these atrocities that go unrecorded, as well.

      May 26, 2017 at 11:12 am

      Aside from the horrendous carnage described, taqiyya-sanitized articles like this make my blood boil. Here are the decoded phrases:

      “Gunmen in military fatigues opened fire ..” –> “Islamic jihadists, following the fascist warlord Mohammed’s genocidal example, opened fire …”

      “…the attack may have killed as many as 35 people …” –> “… the Muslims may have slaughtered as many as 35 non-Muslims as an infidel blood sacrifice to their cruel Islamic deity …”

      “The attack came days after Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi joined US President Donald Trump and top Arab leaders to launch a new centre in the Saudi capital Riyadh to combat the Islamist ideologies behind terrorism.” –> “The attack came on the first day of Ramadan, an annual month-long Islamic ritual in which Muslims demonstrate their slavish piety to Allah by beating, raping, and murdering non-Muslims in a daily sacrificial slaughterfest.”

      “In January, bombings killed dozens at two churches …” In a January typical Muslim attack, Islamic jihadists–using shrapnel-laced bombs–murdered dozens at two churches…”

      “Tensions between Muslims and Christians frequently flare” –> “Muslim genocidal pogroms against the Coptic Christians, the original inhabitants of Egypt before the unprovoked Arab invasion, frequently flare, as the Islamic cult strives to purify society by exterminating the infidel impurities and to crush its culture into oblivion.”

      What I find very disturbing is how when these ‘religiously’-inspired atrocities occur every week around the world, there is no moral outrage. Sometimes no news coverage even. But the occasional similarly big scale occurrence of jihadi violence is perpetrated in the USA or UK – it is front page news.

      The triple identity – Caucasian, western and Christian is not the only group that is targeted to be victims of Islamic ideology put into action. Statistically such is probably the minority.

      Thus begins the “holy” month of Ramadan. A month of fasting, praying, anger, murder. As they pray ever more intensely, they draw closer to the essence of their religion, and strive to carry out its teachings more fully. They stop eating and drinking at the first crack of dawn, and resume at sunset. This devout act of piety gives them the fervor to act on their rage and hatred, and to rape and kill infidels.

      Any politician who wishes them a “happy Ramadan” deserves to be shown what Ramadan really means.

      Long live the difference! We Americans celebrate one of our national holidays, the Fourth of July, by shooting colorful rockets at fireworks demonstrations for the enjoyment of all concerned.
      Muslims don’t bother with fireworks demonstrations, like shooting -up rockets. They celebrate by shooting Christians! I wonder about how many Mideast Christians applied for refugee status from Egypt, or did Obama assure that no Arab-Christians would be allowed into our country under his presidency?

      In Islamic countries, as Egypt, the Muslim clerics encourage the people in the mosques to go out burn the Bible’s and harm Christians in many violent and even deadly ways .Furthermore, in Sunni Islamic nation of Saudi Arabia Bibles are even forbidden to be taken in the country. We all may be sure the Saudi imams have a hand in this policy Likewise, in the Shi’ite nation of Iran, Bibles are even forbidden to be taken into that country. We may all be sure that the Iranian mullahs have a hand in this policy. The reason why the Muslim clerics are so much against the people having Bibles to read is because there is so much in the Bible that is so very damaging to Islamic doctrine that the Muslim clerics sand strongly against the people obtaining Bible’s. For example, Islamic [Koranic] doctrine denies the Jesus is God. In other words Islam denies the Deity of Christ. Nevertheless, the Bible teaches “For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form.” Colossians 2:9. [N.I.V.]
      Moreover, the Jesus is God may further be seen in the Bible. As in, for example, John 1:1-3. Colossians 1:15-17. Romans 9:5. Second Peter 1:1. Titus 2:13. First John 5:20. In addition, for a person to further find out that Jesus is God all a she or he has to do in to compare the Old Testament with New Testament to see that Jesus is God. As by comparing Isaiah 45:22, 23 with Philippians 2:5-11. Likewise by comparing Psalm 89:8,9 with Matthew 8:23-27. Will also confirm that Jesus is God. Also by comparing Psalm 62. 5-7.with First Corinthians 10:4. Just by comparing the New Testament books together will like show that Jesus is God .For example, comparing John 5:22. with Romans 14:12 shows the Deity of Christ. The list can go on but this should be enough for anyone who is willing to see, and not as those who Bible calls those who are willingly ignorant, II Peter 3:5., that Jesus is God.
      The imams and mullahs as well as the other apologists for Islam will try to “explain “ all this away by making the claim that the Bible had been corrupted by Christians, through time, and that’s why the Bible reads as it does. This claim they make very much underestimate the Power of God to preserve His Word and keep it safe and intact and away from the corruption of men.
      In conclusion, The Muslim clerics strongly dislike the Bile because the Bible greatly exposes the terrible doctrinal errors that Islam with the Koran as Islam’s foundation have concerning the nature of Jesus. Likewise the Bible exposes Islam as a false religion, Isaiah 8:20. Proverbs 14:12. All dear Muslims then are invited to turn away for the false religion of Islam and come to and receive the real Jesus of the Bible. Who is the True Light to the world, John 8:12. and the only way to God the Father , John 14:6.

      26 Christian Copts, many of them children are massacred
      by the Luciferian Cult of Islam.

      This is not an isolated incident but part and parcel of slow
      yet unceasing Islamic genocide against all Christians,
      and especially the Copts who before becoming victims of
      genocide at the hands of the Muslims were originally the
      the indigenous inhabitants and the majority of older
      Egypt population.

      That is more than those murdered at the arena in Manchester,
      yet most of the world is practically silent about that atrocity,
      especially Poop Francis.

      league with the wolves, jackals and hyenas.

      I’m scratching my head over this…what could have been the motivation behind mass murder of a bus-load of Christians? Perhaps if the perpetrators had jobs, they would not feel the need to practice terrorism? Surely, the peaceful and tolerant religion of Islam had nothing to do with this because I just heard a respected authority say terrorism has NOTHING TO DO with Islam.

      All those innocent people…..that attack was evil and cruel and as far from God as one could get. How could jihadists think murder is acceptable? If you think about it, they’re killing the people God made, so it’s the exact opposite.

    Ramadan in Egypt: Muslims murder 26 Christians in bus on way to monastery

    Terrorists may be Moslem or not, but one thing is sure that they aren’t Islamic. A pattern to attach the name of Islam and Jihad into their violence against the Mu’ahid and Dhimmis is just a gimmick to steal the portion of Zakat from mosques, Imams and congregations.

  2. θ says:

    One thing is for sure that the radicals always perceived themselves as the 1st victims of three suppressors who keep making them fail to rule or take over any Moslem state:
    (i) the current regimes,
    (ii) the West who backed the regimes as external supporter,
    (iii) the minorities whom the regimes counted as its internal supporter.

  3. θ says:

    Hence perhaps it is quite correct that economy, piousness, and education are not always becoming a strong factor that radicalises a person, but shockingly it comes often from a powerful “victimization factor” in a political game. Ben Laden failed to be a king over the Saudis in a rich nation or an Emir over the Afghans in a poor nation. Getting a political failure is perceived as being victimised. A political loser can easily perceive himself as the 1st victim of all, hence he needs to revenge.
