Christmas Mass was held in Alexandria Sunday, marking the Orthodox Christmas, following the Julian calendar, where the holy day falls on January 7.

Despite the threat of terrorist attacks, with religious minorities facing pressure in Egypt, the festivities continued.

As worshipper Beshoy Fawzi explained: “We came today to pray, we aren’t afraid of terrorists or their actions, we are praying like usual.”

Terrorists are Islamists if you didn’t noticed.
In Islam jihad is mandatory and Islam always attacked others’ religions from the start. Ask Indians : ghazis killed 270-350 millions of them, burnt libraries and universities, etc!
Don’t you remember it was caliph Uthman that burnt down the biggest library on Earth, the great Alexandria one?
Islam was born with the sword and, when you live by the sword, you die by the sword…

“Indians” have a history of slaughtering Christians. As I write the nationalist Hindu are enacting laws to make Christianity illegal. Jews were the first terrorists killing Christians and will not be the last. Every Religion and every form of government has persecuted Christians. Christ has said as a follower you will be persecuted. RED or White Martyrs, nothing new under the sun.
